A rather young creation the Blossom series was designed by Hella Jongerius for Belux in 2007. The surprising thing about these simple recipient-shaped lamps is that depending on which one of the 16 colors they come in they fit in almost any dining environment you can think of.
There’s something unusual about the floor lamp below which features a candy cane curve and a bulb that gets noticed. In fact the piece has an architectural quality that takes its lead from the other unique artifacts in the room such as the spherical collectible that rests on the desk below.
OK so this next featured space isn’t exactly a room in the home. But it’s certainly an outdoor living area. And doesn’t’ it make sense that a space this large would need some lighting? Why not go big with the Indoor/Outdoor floor lamp in glossy thermoplastic expansion by Usona. If white is too subtle for you note that the piece is available in black and orange as well!
The texture of the shade is opaque and softly corrugated thought to reflect other light sources in the room while its own golden light is concentrated upon the table surface in an intense“light isle”. Gorgeous original and elegant nothing less expected of prestigious Catellani and Smith.
From the straight lines to the curve… The featured lamps below are mesmerizing thanks to their curved construction. Like this classic Arco Floor Lamp designed in 1962 by Achille Castiglioni and his brother Pier Giacomo. Available at Design Within Reach the piece has a swiveling shade that extends eight feet illuminating whatever rests beneath it.
As we have said earlier any one type of lighting installation cannot perfectly light up your entire home. But adding several layers of lighting is not the easiest task in the world as these installations need to work in tandem to deliver the best possible result.
