Blown glass, fabric, and colorful stained-glass effects make pendant lights unique and attractive. In your home, use pendant lights as sculptural artwork and effective ambient lighting, all-in-one.
Gilda is a lighting collection designed by Arturo Alvarez, which uses a novel material for the realization of the lamps: Italian glass tiles. It’s collection has been designed in two finishes: squares of white or black glass, which allows its use in existing environments, or those who are betting on more daring mixtures.
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 lamp uses LED technology which allows low electricity consumption. Electricity is transferred between the lamp and its base via magnetic induction with no visible connection. According to the designer, “the ceramic material plays an important role by transporting the user back to a time of candle-holders and hand-lamps by means of its appearance and feel and primarily by the way it is held.”
In areas where ambiance is wanted along with task lighting, add a dimmer onto your pendant lights for versatility of controlling the light output.
In nurseries and kid’s rooms, remember night lighting: Think about the lighting for when children sleep when planning lighting requirements. Night lights can help small children from being scared, but can also help parents navigate through dark rooms.
Subtle elegance fills the space that each piece of lighting is occupying. Ribbons made from metal gracefully shroud the supporting structure made from thin metal bars that each have a light bulb at the end. The thin undulating metal strips are actually the most important trademark of Jacco Maris Design.
There’s something just so right about the design of this minimal lighting fixture from Japan. While it sits there on your tabletop, it casts a dramatic shadow of numeric shapes across the surface of your desk and walls.
