Lighting is an un-sung fundamental to the design of any home – it influences textures, colors, and materials and it draws elements of the room together establishing a mood through a spectrum of hues. Lately, we’ve seen examples of lighting that serve beyond pure utility, with sculptural and striking fixtures that double as works of art.
From intricate and abstract to simple and geometric, ornamental lighting is not limited by any distinct design group, though it can be suitable for any style. Modern minimalists may take interest in 101 Copenhagens Bull Lamps with a design the evokes both midcentury-modern and industrial chic. The opal glass lampshades of the Bull emits a smooth diffusion of light across the room, gifting any space an atmospheric and ambient glow. Abstract lovers and realists alike will appreciate the distinctive architecture and sheen of the Clam Table Lamps – whether your hue is brassy or rose gold the semi concealed bulb within the Clam creates a beautiful radiation of direct and indirect light layering your room with your new favourite embellishment – light.
And for those who wish for a light to be as far removed from an utensil as possible there is the ethereal Planetaria Standing Lamp by Lara Bohinc – the inter play of the brass sphere and the glass orbs unite to transmit a celestial light that mirrors the stars in the night sky. This piece is a true example of a functional sculpture that becomes the centrepiece of a room whether in use or switched off.
