The Nymph was designed by Brooklyn-based interior and furniture design company, Site Specific Design. According to the designers, “Body made of a two-part fiberglass mold- white lacquer finish. Light covers made of Corian. Legs 5/8” hollow steel tubes each curve is unique to its location- white powder coat finish.”
Brainchild of Brazilian designer Rafael Morgan “The Light Drop” takes decorative lighting options to a new level of creativity. This watery light features a tap oozing out of a big drop of lighted water.
Isn’t this neat We think so and love this extremely unique concept. You’ll really surprise everyone with this beautifully innocent book. The book of lights pop up protagonist emits a tabletop warming glow.
If you are looking for a really cool lamp for your desk, then the Chain Lamp designed by Iliara Marelli for Nemo Italianaluce might be what you’re looking for. Made from case aluminum and lit by 4 bright white (1-watt) LEDs, its articulating body folds flat to form an accent light when you’re not using it for task illumination.
While in a living room, opt for a floor lamp next to a couch or favorite reading chair. In bathrooms the lighting at the mirror should be free from shadows and glaring light.
For nurseries consider a dim wall sconce, or table lamp that can be used for changing diapers, or rocking infants to sleep.
We really like this idea, even through for some people it may seem a little irritating, especially if the lamp is in motion and the light keeps fluctuating. However, when it reaches a state of balance, it emits the same type of light as any other common lighting emitting item.
I know that this lamp is awesome, but we’ll have to wait untill Lasse Klein ( Alien Abduction Lamp designer ) will produce this lamp. Here’s how it works. There’s a light bulb inside the supremely awesome metal UFO on top, which illuminates the windows and the mysterious aliens inside.
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.
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:
Transparent House isn’t providing directions or even saying if they are selling these, but the idea’s simple enough I imagine anyone could make this work with a little bit of elbow grease.
Determine what your lighting goals are: Direct or task lighting is focused in the space you are trying to work. Ambient or indirect lighting is used for ambiance and for overall lighting of a space.
While some lights are designed to help you read a book, this Butterfly Lamp by Japanese design studio Vinta takes a page from a book’s shape instead. It easily allows you to adjust how much light is in an area in a fluid way by opening or closing its two “wings.”
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.
