Task lighting: The primary and most widely used purpose of pendant lighting if for illuminating a task area. Whether it is in your kitchen over a bar or kitchen island, or over a work surface-desk area. Pendant lights offer the versatility of being able to see clearly what is at hand for safety and clarity of the task.
The Messe Frankfurt Light+Building show in Germany is the event where retailers, designers and architects go to view what’s next in the lighting design world.
Studio Italia Design’s dramatic Blow Table Lamp is really a sight to behold. The lighting fixture’s centerpiece is a small adjustable 12V lighting head encased inside a blown glass bubble. The light’s direction can be adjusted using a magnet that sits on the outside of its clear glass globe.
Here the lighting has a specific function. Large marble wall paneling is illuminated in the living room, spots over the kitchen island, hidden lighting and lamps hanging over the table. Multimedia is active and the speakers play classical music. Suitable for both expressive cooking and the family gathering around the table.
Fiat Lux Lamp is the latest product from Cate Hogdahl & Nelson Ruiz-Acal and is under production and will soon be launched ! Fiat Lux means “let there be light”, but from these pictures the lamp is not a marvelous source of light.
The lamp looks very simple except for the tasteless, hanging anthropomorphic figure. Either the designers were fresh out of ideas or they are into black humor.
The rocks are fixed together in a pillar so that the light from the lamp cascades right down over them like a waterfall. Price : $119.00
