Types of pendant lighting: Just as there are several types of table lamps, so is true for pendant lighting. Fabric pendant lights give off a softer glow, because of the diffused light through the fabric shades.
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.
This amazing lamp was achieved by cutting up an old fashioned table lamp and inserting more than 40 perspex plates in between the slices. The designers from Studio Mango (The Netherlands) wanted to make ordinary perspex more posh. Well, they not only succeeded but they also managed to update what was an old lamp and made it more modern looking.
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:
At first this looks just like a mild-mannered table lamp (except for the fact that it’s almost six feet tall), but open it up and you’ll see a tiny table lamp sitting on a table. It’s like those Russian nesting dolls. The most surprising aspect of this design is its price, $3,888.
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.
Here’s the coolest lighting I’ve seen in quite a while. It’s called FlapFlap and comes from hopf & wortmann in Germany. Pretty cool, or what do you think? On their site you can read that it’s a limited edition product from 2001, so you probably have to go to eBay or something if you want one.
When you look at this lamp design it seems as if a strange creature is sliding down a rope. Gently and almost weightlessly, radiating a warm and graceful light. Alien. Available in two different sizes and four variations, as pendant, table, floor lights, and outdoor. The lights are being manufactured and sold by Next, and are be available to purchase since September 2008, designed by Büro für Form.
