Brenda Houston is a young designer who has found inspiration in nature. It is simply amazing the way in which minerals are shaped and the way they look. Natural crystals are perfect and they glitter and sparkle like precious stones. These minerals look somehow out of this world, being very original in the way they look and feel and also showing the crystals in a symmetric design. These minerals have inspired Brenda to design the new and modern lighting devices in her collection. The mineral lamps are unique as they focus mainly on the base of the lamp, not on the shade.
Sometimes the designers find inspiration in places you wouldn’t think about. It is enough to see a certain thing, color, to smell a certain thing or to hear some musical piece and the idea pops into their minds. In this case the designer , Loris Bottello, got inspiration from the 1980s movie called “Tron”. Pretty popular back then, the movie inspired him to create the Ring lamp.This lamp has the famous shape of a ring and its base is made of black plastic material.
How many times weren’t you impressed by these things? A beautiful sunrise at the shore of the sea, a great sunset at the mountains, the first smile on your kid’s face, some nice words from a former student who appreciated your job, are things that generate strong emotions and can make your day happier. They bring you more satisfaction than any sum of money or any prize that you can get.
Everybody loves to celebrate and parties.A successful party is that where you feel good, you are surrounded by a lot of friends or persons that you love, the food is great and the music is nice. In case you also celebrate something the whole picture is complete if there are champagne glasses. They symbolize a special moment that deserves to be celebrated.
In case you want to keep this celebration atmosphere the champagne glass lamps are perfect for your house. They will always remind you of special moments.
Brian Rasmussen does a great job designing this amazing lamp from Casamania. But why would a lamp, pendant or table lamp, be called InsideOut? I get it that it is a word game, but the explanation is given by the designer himself. His inspiration was the sphere, the perfect geometrical shape with no beginning and no end. However, when you look at this lamp you can see no such thing as a sphere. Well, if you use your imagination and see the whole picture from the distance, you could. But the outline is not perfect, because the edges go “inside out”. The lamp is made of aluminum sheets and they go in and out like the bows of a ribbon. They fill the missing space with shadows and lights and the optical illusion is amazing.
Every year just before Valentine’s Day I promise myself I will not celebrate it this year and somehow I finish by celebrating it along with all the other people in the city. I know it turned into a big commercial celebration, but I love the idea of celebrating LOVE , so I play along. And I find it nice to give and get a symbolic present that shows that your heart is still in the right place. And what could be more appropriate for this day than heart-shaped lamps. They are also affordable gifts and , to be honest, are also very useful, especially when you want to use them for moving around the house without having to turn on the whole lighting system and wake the kids.
The first thing that crosses you mind when you see a bird is flying. I think that each of us once expressed his or her wish of flying, to experience the beautiful feeling of floating and to have the impression of touching the blue sky.
This bird in hand lamp, designed by J.P.Meulendijks gives the same impression. The ways the hands are arranged seem to resemble some wings of birds. It creates the impression of flying. Their white color makes you think of some pigeons or wings of angels too.It is a lamp that makes you feel closer to the sky or maybe closer to heaven, to divinity.
