The Troja Arc Lamp is a really big lamp, than can provide a high quality light for a very large space. The design is simple and modern, but if you want this lamp you’ll need some space, because she is quite big as you can see.
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:
Designed by Jethro Macey the Coin Lamp requires you to insert a coin before it lights up. It will only light up whenever you insert coins inside, and the lamp itself has been specially set to a pre-determined time by an internal mechanism.
Use exterior wall sconces for décor: Outdoor lighting doesn’t have to only be utilitarian. Wall sconces can provide washes of light against the exterior walls of your home to create ambiance in the evening hours.
A sensor detects how it’s been positioned and operates the light accordingly. I would like to have a desk lamp like this to read focused and undisturbed in the middle of the night, away from the heat durring the day.

In fact, you only need to push on one little thing to make him glow warmly! This humorous accent light is sure to be a conversation piece. Of course, sometimes the conversation gets a little embarrassing for him, so he pulls on his little lampshade.

For high ceilings and modern décor use recessed lighting: “Can” light fixtures, so called because of the metal recessed “can” that is inserted into the ceiling and the light fixture fits inside.
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.
Of course that you can use it for your personal stuff, I’d suggest a magazine, your watch, and finally your cellphone. This bedside table light can be yours for $220.00 from here.
