Maria S.C. Chandelier

I am always inspired by artists who take “defined” objects and place them in a new and refreshing context. Polish based artist Pani Jurek, did just this when she created the Maria S.C. Chandelier from laboratory test tubes. The result is a colorful and playful design with a strong reference to the classical European chandelier. What is even more wonderful is that the Maria S.C. Chandelier invites its owners to participate in the creation. The tubes can be detached, and you can add liquids of various colors to change the appearance of the chandelier. Another option is to add plants or candles which too create a whole new effect. Continue reading

Buddy Lamp

Buddy is a designer table lamp which won the Northern Lighting Student Award for 2015. This lamp was chosen because it has an original design with a strong concept and characteristic form which challenges the existing lighting design standards, shapes and functions. Unlike typical lamps, Buddy has an attached storage unit that is ideal for keeping pencils and pens and small office supplies. I love how the shape of the storage unit mimics the form of the lamp shade. It’s these little details that make the design complete. Continue reading

The Slope is an exquisite collection of light fixtures by Stefan Krivokapic. Each fixture presents a beautiful combination of solid wood and colored metal. I love the clean cone shape – wide or narrow – and its contemporary feel. The top of the Slope fixtures is especially appealing since in addition to their tapered shape, a pinch of wood was removed from each side. A small detail that adds a soft, curved touch to the entire design of the lamp. Continue reading
