If you always wanted something really cool and unique then the Ociu Light from Zava that has a diameter of 6 feet ( 185 cm ) certainly makes a statement. The suspension is fully realized in opal methacrylate, 8 mm thickness, diameter of 185 cm and a width of 90 cm.
These are all handmade lighting fixtures, beautifully created by hand by Jacco Maris, in collaboration with Ben Quaedvlieg. Stainless steel, black steel and brass, the distinctive materials used by the designer, add to the glamorous effect of the lights.
The delicate design opens like a book into a honeycomb pattern that’s held together with small clips in the back.

Hiding beneath its opalescent polycarbonate skin are a number of bright white LEDs which provide clean, green illumination. You can find the Abyss Lamp from Y Lighting for about $500.
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.

The Messe Frankfurt Light+Building show in Germany is the event where retailers, designers and architects go to view what’s next in the lighting design world.

Fiat Lux Lamp is the latest product from Cate Hogdahl & Nelson Ruiz-Acal and is under production and will soon be launched ! Fiat Lux means “let there be light”, but from these pictures the lamp is not a marvelous source of light.
