Everything from the song to the fabulous Moulin Rouge-esk theatrical cinematography. The next piece I create, be it a sketch, a piece of clothing, or a painting I am going to incorporate this wonderful mix of color and theatrics.
Lindsey Adelman‘s custom made lighting collection is absolutely stunning. Crafted and assembled in her New York City studio, the Bubble Series features hand-blown glass globes and custom plated hardware.
London based Industrial Designer Samuel Wilkinson created the Vessel Series, mouth-blown glass lamps that house the Plumen 001, a low energy light bulb. The play between the glass and the bulb create wonderful illusions. I would love to see these in person.
These beautifully crafted pendent lights called Diva are designed by Peter Natedal and Thomas Kalvatn Egset for NorthernLighting of Norway. They reflect the Norwegian heritatge of wood lamination craftsmanship. I love their gorgeous curve and warm glow.
Beautiful Egyptian pendent lighting. Combining an ancient craft with modern touches these hand hammered brass, silver plated, and delicately drilled patterned pendent lights are available from Le Souk.
I love the Edison lightbulb. It is beautiful and adds a wonderful ambiance to a room, (unfortunately it is not very energy efficient). Recently, I have specified some fixtures with the Edison bulb from the company Schoolhouse Electric.They have great products and very affordable!
The trend for the raw lightbulb has been going on for a little while but I really enjoy seeing how designers are pushing that style and coming up with some really creative fixtures. Below are some that I though were quite interesting.
