Like a searchlight, this Lamp is mounted on tripod legs, giving it a certain loft like presence. Last is a large floor-lamp that can be used as a spotlight to highlight any object in a room, be it a work of art, a rug or furniture. The light beam is adjustable so its possible to bounce light off a ceiling or simply use as a reading light. There is even a version as a pendant lamp–great for complimenting those vast airy spaces.

Studioilse w084t Task Lamp by Studioilse for Wästberg

Studioilse w084t by Studioilse for Wästberg

Winner of the Good Design Award and shortlisted as one of the 25 Best Design Objects by Monocle, the Studioilse w084t task lamp is made from natural materials and sturdy construction.

“Materials have hidden messages. These create a powerful link to our emotional psyches and shape our connection to daily life. Our light is a sturdy friend, unpretentious and always there for us. We have chosen honest materials that carry clear messages: iron for its feelings of stability, reliability, trust; wood with its warmth and life, and mineral plastic for its intimate glow, as well as its tactility. Then we have put these three together for a certain oddness. This is because there’s an innate awkwardness in the directional light that we wanted to amplify-rather as with people this is a sympathetic quality, not a sin.”
- Ilse Crawford

Like a sentinel in the garden, Light House is reminiscent of the small cottages that dot the Swedish archipelago. Thomas Sandell’s design borrows the classic house-form and transforms it into a floor lamp, made from white lacquered steel.
Light House is available as both an indoor and outdoor version, so you can place it where you like. The outdoor version has 4 holes, one in each end, on the ground plate for a fixed installation.

Bloom.MGX by Patrick Jouin for MGX by Materialise

Inspired by both the One_Shot.MGX stool and flower blossoms found in nature, this table lamp in two sizes, features a shade which easily collapses and expands to release or contain light. As with the One_Shot.MGX, the shade is 3D printed as a single piece, including hinges that in one movement, transform the shade from a bud to a blossom. And with the complexity of its design, the Bloom lamp succeeds in pushing even further the boundaries of 3D technologies.

Zero PXL Table and Pendant Lamp By Fredrik Mattson

Fredrik Mattson has designed “Pixelated Eyecandy,” a radical retro concept for a table and hanging lamp. Mattson took the form of the traditional lamp and cut it up into rings, disassembled and then reassembled to make its current form. Manufactured by Swedish company Zero, each model is available in a much tamer white flavour.

Tua Table Lamp by Marco Zito for Foscarini

A table lamp with which you can create a personal relationship; surprisingly simple, because it has been thought out with a great deal of care. Tua is inspired by the palm of the hand containing a light: a gesture interpreted in a single, shaped metal plane that is both the support and shade of the lamp. The light source is hidden inside the range of the curve, whose aesthetic has a characteristically fine cut. When the light is on, it creates a pleasantly intimate glow, perfect for all those spaces dedicated to the single person (bedside table or work table). The lamp lends itself even to a multiple interpretation: interior-exterior, two-dimensional/three-dimensional, a graphic sign and a functional lamp, which is always elegant, reassuring and friendly.

Malva Lights by ett la benn

Malva is a series of lights inspired by the natural qualities of cellulose and viscose: the objects are generated by the forming of moistened sponge cloth and its subsequent hardening by air drying on a mould. The translation of this customary material into individual design pieces through basic processes of forming and drying measures up to the highest demands in sustainability and eco friendliness: all objects are compostable.
