Bi-Color Washi Lamp

Bi-Color Washi Lamp by Nendo

Japanese design studio Nendo have created the Bi-Color Washi lighting collection in collaboration with Taniguchi Aoya Washi. The lamp is made using 3D papermaking technique. From the designers, “Washi is made by passing fine screens through a bath of mulberry pulp and water to collect the pulp, then by drying the screens and peeling off the new paper sheets. Rather than pasting sheets of washi together to create forms, the company uses the same process to create beautiful seamless forms that are three-dimensional from the start.

Bi-Color Washi Lamp by Nendo

After experimenting with dyeing the forms in two steps as they were being shaped, we realized that we could create a lampshade whose exterior and interior surfaces are different colours. In other words, we could use Taniguchi Aoya Washi’s process to make lampshades whose dark or bright exterior surface is accompanied on the interior by the kind of light, reflective colour necessary for light diffusion. And this was a first for washi lightshades. As requested by the client, the shades can be stacked to keep distribution and storage costs to a minimum.”

Cappello Lamp

Canadian design studio Molo has designed Cappello Lamp. In designer’s words, “Cappello is lit by LED, shaded by a paper “cap” or cappello in Italian and is set upon a cylinder of soft white Carrara marble. The cylinder piece actually comes out of the hole bored through the marble block-shaped base for Arco, the iconic floor lamp designed by the Castiglioni brothers and manufactured by Flos. molo’s first lamp designed with the marble core as a base is called love letter and utilizes a unique double-sided electroluminescent film as its lighting source. Both lamps are a tribute to the designers we admire.”

Clover Lamp

Clover is a suspended sculptural lamp designed by Brodie Neill for Italian company Kundalini. The design, inspired by the clover leaf is very delicate and elegant as a flower. The lamp body is made of molded polyurethane with opaque finish and the reflector is made of aluminum. Following is some information from the designer, “Flowing lines and surfaces move, spread out and meet. They form an alluring three-dimensional, enveloping and open structure. This is a sculptural-lamp of extreme visual lightness. It is a kind of ultra contemporary and dream-like mobile. A shape intended to diffuse light in an evocative way.

Florally inspired, it calls to mind the organic forms of a clover leaf. The light source, hidden at the meeting point of the three petals, casts light onto the internal surfaces in a continuous play of reflections and rebounds.”

Decorative lamps made of a new composite material

The brand Metalarte created decorative lighting guided by the idea of merging the modern and the traditional. The brand complies with the typical Spanish design and its techniques, always trying to adapt to new trends. Metalarte recently enriched the range of products with a new collection of lamps – “Stones”, created from a material with similar properties as stone. The new composite material is a hybrid between architectural concrete and synthetic stone, technically sophisticated, but the manually produced.

By combining digital technology and manual production, the designers of “Metalarte”, Ramon Ubeda and Otto Kanalda designed and developed this collection of three lamps “Sharon”, “Rolling” and “Oliver”, each with a different character and functions made the same material, cast in molds.

With a cylindrical base and shade, “Sharon” leaves a strong visual impression in the space, thanks to its fine finish on rough base and elegant timeless silhouette.

“Rolling” is portable and multifunctional lamp for the interior and exterior, suitable for illumination of terraces and porches. The handle and the base of the lamp are merging into a single solid body reminiscent of traditional lanterns.

Simple, functional and heavier than the previous two, “Oliver” is a lamp designed for outdoor spaces. The material from which it is made does degrade or rust, which is a great ecological replacement for metal landscape lights.

Drawstring Lamp

Gothenburg-based studio Design Stories have created the Drawstring lamps in collaboration with Returhuset. The lamps are made of waste material from local factories. The Drawstring lamps are available in two sizes, a medium sized pendant lamp and small sized pendant and standing table lamp.

Drawstring Lamp by Design Stories and Returhuset

From the designers, “All the materials in the lamps are reused or recycled. The fabric in Drawstring Lamp is made by Svensson Markspelle, originally used as a sun screen which filters the light beautifully and therefore is well suited for lighting products. Additionally the textile has a structure that allows it to be self-supporting in an organic yet symmetrical way. The legs in the table lamp comes from bicycle spokes and the wood is scraps from a carpenters workshop.

As we wanted to make an outstanding design with crafted and unique details we sought ourselves to Göteborg’s Belt Factory, to design fabric cords that complement the lamp shade. The textile cables have a three colored dotted pattern reminiscent of the classic textile cable but more three dimensional in its look. The wooden parts that hold the lamp together both work as a constructional component, decoration and as a practical feature if you want to shorten the cable.”

Chou – lamps inspired

Chou lamps are ideal for everyone who admire the spirit of China and the old Chinese lanterns. The cylindrical hanging and floor lamps, created by the Spanish design studio “Yonoh” are inspired by the movie “The World of Suzie Wong”.

Each lamp from the collection “Chou” with its inventive design and ambient light tells stories from the Far East and plunge into the cinematic world of Hong Kong.

The cylindrical shape of lamps is created by folding thin pieces of wood that create the shade on the lamp. The shades are then placed on a black metal base and a metal handle is attached to it. The thin pieces of wood give the lamps almost transparent appearance and depending on the color spread different shades of light in space.

The ‘Drop Light’ will enrich and enliven your home life.

Drop Light 2

The ‘Drop Light’ can be used anywhere in the home. It will gently brighten the night for your baby or young child, create a romantic mood for you and your partner and protect your family from complete darkness during a blackout.

Drop Light 3

You can turn the light on/off by simply touching the edge of the hanger. If you touch and hold the edge of the hanger, the brightness will increase and decrease in intensity – allowing you to set the mood. When you find the right mood, simply move your hand away and the adjustment will be complete. The power and brightness control interface is identical when the drops are separated from the flower base too.

Drop Light 4

When you move the drop away from the base, the drop continues the light so you can even utilize it as you might a torch. The drops’ battery lasts for up to 10 hours after just a couple of hours of charging, which also makes it useful for overnight use, perhaps one as a night light in your child’s bedroom and the rest as mood lighting at a dinner party that runs late.”

GEO Magnetic Lamp

GEO Magnetic Lamp is an innovative lighting unit created by Hyungwoo Uhm. In designer’s words, “The core of this design is that this desk lamp can fulfill two different functions. At ordinary times, it is used as an illuminator which is changeable in height with the head lamp lifted to the top along the rail. And if the head part lowers down to the base along the rail with the help of magnetic force and over-lapped with base part, light is emitted from the parting line and then this lamp can also be used as an indirect lighting for romantic mood.

GEO Magnetic Lamp 1
GEO Magnetic Lamp 2

Ball shaped switch is attached to the very fine thread, so that it gives an image that it’s suspended to the air. As the electric current flowing into each sections varies in intensity, the current allows the spherical switch to shift its position to on/off and three different levels, which makes people adjust the intensity of illumination.”

Host Lamp – Light With Built-In Humidifier

The Host Lamp is a unique light designed by Minsung Bae which works as humidifier using the waste heat emitting from the lamp. In designer’s words, “A lamp is one of the most familiar and useful products illuminating our room. However, the lamp emits a great amount of waste heat to make light, up to 95% of all its energy. The humidifier is a guest appliance getting its energy from the heat waste from its Host, the lamp. The humidifier would prevent the air in the room from dying up, attaching to its host.

Host Lamp with Humidifier

When the lamp is turned on, TGMs, which is placed between the water and the aluminum heat sink, produce 2.4 voltage by the temperature difference between those. The voltage charges the humidifier working by AA cell battery. After all, the humidifier starts to work with the charged battery.” The TGM creates a voltage when there is a different temperature on each of its sides by ‘Seebeck effect’.

The outer layer of bark and spikes on the log remain unaltered. They will gradually decay, allowing the piece’s appearance to naturally evolve over time. A product of the Booy & Haw partnership, this is part of a series of furniture created from salvaged and raw materials that would have otherwise ended up as landfill.”
