artistry in wood by palo samko

I think I like the beautiful photography of Brooklyn designer Palo Samko’s wood lighting, sculpture and furniture as much as the magnificent collection itself. Everything is so minimally clean, yet rich and substantial.

Yep, I like it all.

urban lamp by david raine

Oh how I love the juxtaposition of materials in this sculptural Urban lamp from UK artist David Raine for his company alkamie.biz. It has a wonderfully non-tippy base of concrete with perspex insert, and is topped with a stunning, shredded (and fire-resistant) silk shade.

David also offers his beautiful, organically-shaped lampshades separately.

To me this is like wearing a fancy sweater with a plain skirt — it’s special and very stylish without being too overdone.

Purchase the lamp and shades at the Hidden Art shop and see more from David on his website.

sander mulder lamps at generate

i love contemporary lighting and i love generate as a resource. look here at the sexy (and environmentally friendly!) pieces that have recently arrived from slick dutch designer sander mulder: the beautifully minimal, dimmable aluminum halo lamp (no light bulb!), and the playful handblown pyrex ceci (mentioned before), which uses the shape of a broken bulb as a shade for an led.

one is $229, and the other, well, you’ll have to ask… but they’re both available right here.


mariposa pendant light by la murrina

i think this very pretty mariposa ceiling fixture by marco piva for italy’s la murrina would add a colorful sculptural element to a neutral room. it is crafted of butterfly wing-styled murano glass discs (hence the name) and reminds me of capiz shell lamps, but it’s a bit more substantial.

this piece can be ordered in a few different sizes with black, red or white disc combinations. see it and much more from la murrina right here.

dear ingo lamp by ron gilad

look at this kooky dear ingo lamp by ron gilad for moooi. a seeming tribute to equally imaginative german lighting designer ingo maurer, the versatile piece features 16 separate metal task lamps which can be aimed in myriad different directions.

ron_gilad_dear_ingo_lamp

this fixture really reminds me of that one villain in spiderman 2, and why the heck can’t i remember that guy’s name now? was it alfred molina? doc oc? hmmmmph.

anyway, it’s available at unica home — price on request.

light box by jo meesters

what a beautiful light by dutch designer jo meesters. it looks more like a substantial credenza or other piece of furniture from the way it is crafted. made of wood, 8,000 holes have been carefully drilled and plugged with resin so that when lit from within, the pattern resembles low growing trees.

what a gorgeous, glowing room divider this would make, on or off.
