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.
The Relumine project is a very good-looking lighting concept that uses two old lamps at a time connected by a longer glass tube to light up the space around them. It almost looks like the two lamps, which are, in most cases, of different sizes, are talking to each other through light and the general effect is awesome. It kind of reminds me about Pixar’s Luxo lamp, without all that jumping. The Relumine is said to use less energy thanks to the glass tube than the two lamps combined would consume if they would be working separately which is another reason to consider this particular lighting design. All you need now are some old lamps to revive through the Relumine project.

It’s the bedroom that’s one of the most important sections of a home. Bedrooms are a place to relax and regain that lost energy, leave the stress of anything. Of late, there are five mainstays of a bedroom to be kept in mind as far as its decoration is concerned.
Let’s quickly navigate through those crucial points so that you can kickoff the decoration for the bedroom in a flash.
If you are planning to buy the bedroom furniture on a tight budget then you must start off with a simple bed spread and bed skirt. Remember that keeping a simple bed spread would let you spread out a foundation for different additions later on. These spreads don’t have to be boring as one can always play with different weaves and texture that’s set to enhance and liven up your palette. Work accordingly to see what you want depending on your personality and season’s demand.
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.
Getting ready to head off to college? Be prepared for a decorator’s worst nightmare when you open your dorm room door. Cinder block walls, concrete floors or industrial style tiling, nondescript windows that let in little light, and furniture that has seen better days all await your arrival. Do not get excited about the room’s lighting either, as dorm rooms are notoriously under or over-lit with harsh florescent lights. While you may be stuck with the furniture and can do nothing about the window itself, you can add additional lighting to make your dorm room shine.
