When you think of a garden you probably think of grass, trees and probably a bench and a swing for your kids, probably some decoration stuff, but there is little chance you would think of walkover lights in the shape of pathway stones, now would you?
Well, the designer Roberto Paoli did, and he found his inspiration in Michael Jackson’s music video called Billy Jean, where Michael’s steps light different parts of the floor. This is how Jacko Steps came to existence, and I don’t know about you, but they look pretty neat to me. These babies come in a string of five, and you can arrange them in a variety of patterns – as with all good things, imagination is your limitation… or not.
These lights will surely give a new allure to any garden no matter how modern or modest it may be.
This following lighting project is the work of the awesome german designer Christian Haas and it’s called ROPES lamps.
Christian Haas on his lamps:
ROPES is a new series of lamps launched this week at Colette, Paris. The idea behind the lamps was to combine LED-technology with a innovative soft look and textile appeal. Unlit, the lamps provide a graphic statement to their environment. Lit, they diffuse a gentle ambient light.
Each piece is unique, numbered and varies in size and technique. ROPES are handmade in France and Germany.
This looks pretty neat, so what do you think? Is this the most awkward lamp or what? If you found something better than this, don’t be a lamp and just stay there, go ahead and drop a link.
This week at archtopia we want to show you a few cool lamps, designed by QisDesign. Well, If you love LED technology, than you will definitely like these neat concepts.
These lamps share a common name: Coral and the models that run by this name are: Coral, Coral Reef, Piano, Crystal, and Seagull. The designers, who know how to play nice with the light, have created magical lighting objects, by abstracting to max the traditional lamp.
1./2. Coral table and floor
is a lamp inspired by, you guessed it, natural coral, reflecting rays of light through the living sea. Using a lovely diffusion technique, this lamp shines light through the edges of its planes.
3. Coral Reef
is a floor lamp featuring 3 adjustable lighting layers that overlap and can be activated individually. A unique ambiance is created with each adjustment and position combination.
This is an elegant floor lamp designed by Monica Forster, made for Italian furniture company De Padova. These casual yet contemporary floor lamps feature a playful parasol style shade perched atop an arching steel base that’s ever-so elegant.
The soft shining, flopping aluminum shade features rubber-effect polyurethane paint that gives it a casual feel, and the powder-coated base is built to last. Available in fresh white and pretty yellow, the color options are light and carefree, suiting the sunshade shape to a T. An easy-access foot switch makes it that much more usable, while energy-saving fluorescent bulbs are bright and use less energy. For more details visit the official website De Padova.
As the world evolves, human need for light is changing, is growing and it’s all justified since we need clarity, warmth and certitude. The Wall Lamp created by Arturo Alvarez, called Guau, is a mood creating lamp that will illuminate your space in a creative, original and funky style. The lamp features a flat adjustable shade tht you can move or rotate in various positions to direct the light wherever you like. You can see it in more detail on the Arturo Alvarez official website.
