'Tis the season for bright and modern lighting designs.
Designer: David Weeks of David Weeks Studio
Standout: The New York–based creative
introduces a svelte powder-coated aluminum sconce with bilateral arms on a fixed mount, allowing the fixture to be installed vertically or horizontally, on the wall or ceiling.
Designers: Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Flos
Standout: Designed by the Parisian
brothers, the LED fixture’s sinuous line
of leather in natural, black, or green contrasts with a rigidly linear aluminum
housing and cables.
Designer: Andrea Anastasio for Foscarini
Standout: A magical sconce the designer describes as a “jewel for the domestic space” combines unlikely opposites:
statuary marble and a transparent Perspex disc, which dangles like an earring from
a wall-mount dowel.
Designers: Andi Kovel and Justin Parker
of Esque Studio
Standout: The Portland artists’ experimentations with modeling material sparked
a portable light with a handblown glass shade (in fuchsia, lavender, or mint) and
a white base that hides the lighting elements.
Designer: Marc Wood of Marc Wood Studio
Standout: A three-piece cluster pendant by the British designer combines crystal glass, hand-thinned Rosa Aurora marble, and brushed brass for an elegant interplay of light and shadow.
Designer: Ana Kraš for Hay
Product: Bonbon Shade
Standout: Handwoven of wool-nylon yarn on a powder-coated steel frame, the
Serbian-born American designer’s lamp
can be used as an object in its own right, or illuminates with the addition of a pendant light cord set.
Designer: Luca Nichetto of Lodes
Product: Easy Peasy
Standout: A bell-shape portable, rechargeable LED table lamp in blown glass by
the brand’s design curator offers dim-to-warm functionality by rotating its bulbous handle.
Designer: Brendan Ravenhill of Brendan Ravenhill Studio
Product: Ada Oak
Standout: Two louvered shades of FSC-
certified white oak form a warmly minimalist wall-washing sconce that the L.A. designer named for the Americans With Disabilities Act.
