Slope

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

Starry Light Lamp Collection

The creative team of graphic designer Anna Farkas and interior designer Miklos Batisz has joined forces to produce the Starry Light lamp collection by Anagraphic.

Anna’s thought process was two-fold. Her idea was to create a functional and beautiful pendant light that reflected the starry sky she sees outside her home in Budapest, Hungary. This lightweight, powder coated aluminum lampshade projects a soft, indirect light downward for intimate dinners, and a strong, direct light that shines upward and outward onto the adjacent walls and ceiling above for a celestial view of beauty.
