DNA Lamps by Next

Like an organically growing structure, a complex form develops out of a suprisingly simple element. Available in white, ruby red and chrome plastic modules – each with three light bulbs – which can be added to each other, so the ligthing object can vary in size, from a single format up to a cluster.

Skydro—More Mercury Lights by Ross Lovegrove

You have seen the Mercury light by Artemide where each piece acts as a sculptural object reflecting the dynamics of natural light and the movement of people. Ross Lovegrove has since created Skydro a similar concept, but more er, blobular.

Fields Wall Sculpture and Light from Foscarini

Simple, essential shapes, dampened by rich and intense hues. The design concept originates from a suggestive and moving panoramic, almost aerial, view that pays tribute to the designer’s homeland of Mancha, an area of Spain steeped in contrasts that extends over the fields as far as the eye can see. The lamp is composed of methacrylate and aluminium sheets that diffuse the light creating a range of lighting effects on the wall.

Mercury Light by Ross Lovegrove

A ceiling fixture that places a floating assembly of large pebbles below a simple aluminium disc. These in turn reflect each other, bouncing light between their taught biomorphic surfaces and reflecting the environment around them. During the day the piece acts as a sculptural object reflecting the dynamics of natural light and the movement of people around them.

Torch Light from Established & Sons

Made from a moulded textured plastic, the Torch Light comes in three versions: small cone, small rounded and the large cone. Sylvain Willenz’s work, is inspired by archetypal objects—in this case, the simple silhouette of a typical hand-held torch or car headlight.
