The Cloche lamp by young Norwegian designer Lars Beller Fjetland exudes grace control and charm as profiled in its striking 1930s industrial-esque form. Produced by Wrong for Hay the poetic design of the Cloche explores beauty weight and balance through an off-set cast-iron base black powder-coated stem and shade (in matte white matte black or polished copper).
A conical shade with a laser-cut teardrop pattern takes center stage in the Havana Floor Lamp from Jonathan Adler. An adjustable joint makes this piece as stylish as it is functional. If your budget calls for super affordable lighting you’ll love RANARP from IKEA which features an industrial design in powder-coated steel for a bargain price of $59.99!
Designed in 1929 by Arne Jacobsen the Bellevue Table Lamp was reintroduced by Danish company &tradition. The Bellevue was Jacobsen’s first lighting design and with its swan-like neck and clean form takes inspiration from the Bauhaus era. The 45-degree cut shade (which made a later appearance on Jacobsen’s Bellevue petrol station near Copenhagen) diffuses the light with minimal glare.
Yet we are time and again fettered by convention and a lack of imagination. Good design in a workspace will augment our creative vision bolstering expression passion communication and professionalism.
With a unique vintage-meets-modern look the Caracas Floor Lamp from Jonathan Adler combines cones and balls with a marble base for an unforgettable lighting piece. Love the brass pull chains!
Overhead lights which started as a necessity during the height of the Industrial Revolution in factories all over the globe soon found the status of intriguing design elements that brought textural and visual contrast to modern interiors.
