he Trend Forum at the show forecast that one of the next trends for the home will be lighting “infused with allusions of nature: in organic forms, in the spectrum of natural colors and the world of bud, leaf and plant motifs.” Lighting inspired by nature softens the feel of cold, contemporary or bare spaces by adding softer lines and an organic feel to the room.
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.
Used in any space, residential or commercial, the lights from Montone Collection will be the primary focus point. This is how Jacco Maris describes the collection: “Cohesive force. Ultimate coordination. Unity in balance. Enchanting effect. Moment of contemplation…”
The key to their versatility is utter simplicity.” The geometric trend is a great option if you’re looking to give your space a modern or mid-century vibe.
The guys at Transparent House have a great idea for what to do with all of those translucent old cassette tapes clacking together under the bucket seats of your Impala: glue them together and fashion them into a lamp.
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:
Use fabric pendant lights over dining room tables and kitchen islands where you want a softer glow for eating and entertaining. Glass shade pendants utilize glass or acrylic to maximize the light output and emit a concentrated light, for specific tasks, like at a desk or work surface.
For those of us who can’t see in the dark and have a tendency to stumble around in the gloom, we (along with our stubbed toes) would be grateful to see this nicely-designed luminaire actually finding its way to the marketplace.
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.
It may be ugly, but you can’t deny that a wiener dog with an illuminated torso is pretty damn funny. You can have it from here for $50.
The Montone Collection of Lights from Jacco Maris are a dream: twisting shapes take your breath away while they sinuously create an amazing array of lighting fixtures. Striking design makes these wonderful chandeliers stand out on any ceiling.
The Duck Lamp was created by Sebastian Errazuriz and is a really strange and creepy lamp. The lamp isn’t for sale, I think that this design will remain just a design because I don’t see people buying something like this. As a design is unique and interesting but this lamp only purpose is to scare off your friends and family too, but who know’s maybe there are people who like this design.
The Fiat Lux Lamp has an integrated slot which definitely comes in handy to hold magazines and books, for those who like to read something right before going to bed.
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.
Don’t be afraid when choosing lighting for your home, it can help your ambiance and mood in the space. If you need lighting help ideas get inspiration from lighting stores, catalogs, and online decor and fashion blogs/magazines. Just like the color of your rooms, lighting should enhance your space and make it feel warm and inviting!
