Created by the Japanese Kyouei Design Studio, the lamp “Honeycomb” is entirely made of paper “denguri“, a product of the Shikoku region from Japan, which is unique in effect and create a lantern that is only 2 cm thick when is packaged for delivery.
The designer’s mission was to set three different sets of lightning (three “SCENES”) and show how with one interior and different lighting, you can feel in different ways:
Hiding beneath its opalescent polycarbonate skin are a number of bright white LEDs which provide clean, green illumination. You can find the Abyss Lamp from Y Lighting for about $500.
For those who want things that are a little bit out of common, here is a great and beautiful example of how you can use illumination with style. Javier Henriquez and Sebastian Lara from the Mexican design studio eos méxico got inspired by the suburb afternoons and came up with this beautiful birds on a wire illumination. A simple design, but the effect is very interesting, and I’m sure that is not to much work to build yourself one of these.
These are all handmade lighting fixtures, beautifully created by hand by Jacco Maris, in collaboration with Ben Quaedvlieg. Stainless steel, black steel and brass, the distinctive materials used by the designer, add to the glamorous effect of the lights.
Ambient lighting: Pendant lights can also be used as more of a decorative and artistic way to light a space. Multiple story atriums, foyers, and open spaced rooms maximize the look of pendant lights the most effectively with long and dramatic extension wires.
Pendant lighting is used in areas of your home that you need direct task lighting, or you need a drop down ambient light from a higher ceiling. Depending on your task and the decorative look you’re trying to achieve, pendant lighting can be perfect for your home.
It seems even with the modern LED light technology, designers just cannot let go of old designs. Good Night Eileen by Christine Birkhoven is based on the archaic hand-lamp, which was used for illumination moving from one room to another at home in the dark.
