Wood is not the most transparent of materials to use for lamp shades but when steam bent and twisted with lots of space in-between for the light to get through, the wood light pendants by Tom Raffield will light up any room they are used in. This one is called The Giant Flock as though it were a flock of birds – cool.
Canadian lighting designer CEK has created these very sculptural head, hand and mouth lamps from concrete and the result is unconventionally awesome. The cast hands and heads have a whimsical quality that is true to CEK’s claim that he likes to “play with concrete”
The Knotty Bubbles lighting collection by Lindsey Adelman are all made with lights held within irregular shaped glass balls that in turn are held with khaki rope and while other light collections are also made with glass and rope, these ones feature rope that is tied in knot after knot after knot.
Jimmie Martin creates a whole line of one off designer furniture, lighting and home ware but it’s these hand painted Manikin floor lamps that can really light up a room’s décor. The modern madness of these Manikin lamps runs the gamut of shaded, exposed lights, seated, standing, male and female – each individually painted in a wide array of artistic statements. They are absolutely marvellous!
