Designed by Raz Sadeq, Momo Miyazaki and Kat Zorina, the Ignite light is not just another regular lighting fixture. It’s interactive and responds to the surroundings. The Ignite lamp draws inspiration from candle flames and wind chime movements for its focal feature. When the Ignite light comes in contact with the slight vibrations like wind or the touch of hand, it starts flickering. When you hold particular shapes, the Ignite light turns on and off, thanks to the use of Arduino board and sensors that have been made from aluminum foil and 8-ohm speakers. The speakers capture the slightest vibrations from the wind or touch, and flicker the lights.
This is without doubt one of the most vivacious lighting fixtures we have featured in the past. The Luminarium, designed by Stefano Pertegato of Milano, Italy, is inspired by the recent studies about the biologic effects of lighting, especially with respect to modern living environments. The Luminarium does a 12 hour lighting cycle, in which an indirect emission (reflected by the ceiling and taken by mixing three different T2 fluorescent lamps) changes color temperature throughout the day. The soothing morning light (3000°K) gradually gets cold until it gets to 6000°K in the afternoon. It later turns warm again to highlight the natural sunset. With the changing color temperature, the dynamic LED spotlight illustrates a slight movement in the environment and a light halo depicts the hardly noticeable changes in the surroundings.
Designed by Carla Cava and Jordi Poblet, the Koolah lamp reminds me somehow of the Collapse lamp by Hayo Gebauer, except for the fact that it doesn’t fall over when it’s turned off. The beautiful lighting fixture aims to put forth the complex object of a lamp in a very simple way. The enticing make of the lamp makes it a perfect addition to any contemporary living spaces. The Koolah lamp draws inspiration from the Enzo Mari’s “Autoprogettazione,” the famous handbook of self design for its inviting design. It’s easy to produce and assemble.
Hardly a day passes when we don’t get to see some stylish, stunning and innovative lighting fixture for the contemporary spaces. Desined by Asli Ozcivelek, the Kineo kinetic lamp is one neat design that is surely going to turn more than a few heads. The Kineo could be used both as tabletop lamp or a pendant lamp. The highlight of this eye-catching lamp is its kinetic features that let the users control the intensity of the light coming out from the lamp. When a user moves the hinges upwards, the main body holding the light bulb gets closed, thereby reducing the amount of emanating light.
With a variety of lamps available in the market, it is always a challenging task to find the perfect one for your abode. If you are looking for something unusual, unique and stylish, you might love to check out the Table Lamp XVIII by Polish artist Przemek Krawczyński who has been making gourd lamps since 2009. With attention paid to every single detail, the Table Lamp XVIII is made from Senegalese calabash and would appeal to anyone who admires original designs created with highest quality. The white carvings on the XVIII gourd lamp are deeper layer of wood that allows light to pass through it.
If regular lighting fixtures don’t impress you much, these otherworldly lighting fixtures by Daniel MacDonald might interest you a bit. Shio is a line of organic alien mineral light sculptures that have been inspired by the designer’s adventures in Yellowstone National Park when he was a kid. Each light is handmade using recycled materials, and the concept lies in filling living crystal beings with light. The Shio collection includes three species of alien light sculptures – Chrysalis, Orbis and Occulus.
