Blinding Love Pendant Lights

February 11, 2011

Christopher Jobson

These heart lamps are just awesome. And by awesome I mean, so amazing that if I saw them hanging in a storefront window I would break the glass with a nearby snow shovel (this is Chicago people), deftly pluck the lights from the ceiling and return to my underground lair of high-end lighting where I would hang them and cackle MIIINEE AT LAST!!! Ahem.

Designed by Thien Ta Trung at Periphere for Toronto’s Made at Home show, the lights were aptly inspired by the phrase “Home is where the heart is”. And they will be mine. Oh yes, they will be mine. (via hello bauldoff, mocoloco)

Love the concept of this modular LED film light by Davide Groppi. Each individual unit containing 10 slides can be attached to another for a potentially unlimited stream of photos or colors. (via mocoloco)

Aviad Petel: 99″ Lamp

January 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The 99″ Lamp by Tel Aviv-based Aviad Patel is comprised of 99 strips of yellow veneer fiber hung individually along thin metal slots. From Eyes in Design:

Suspended on three metal cords of adjustable length, the lamp takes its optimal place in the space and intrigues the viewer by its shape from every possible angle. 99 thin natural stripes, each 1″ wide, delicately woven and individually stitched between slots of metal, eventually create the shape of the lamp. Wood veneer has a special protective coating which allows easy cleaning and guarantees longevity.

The smaller pieces in the last two photos are early prototypes (dubbed 33″), however I think they’re just as striking as the actual light. I can only fathom how much a light like this must cost, apparently the prototype has already been sold at auction. If you’re interested get in touch with Yair Doram Lighting.

The Luminous Earth Grid

January 11, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The Luminous Earth Grid was a 1993 installation by artist Stuart Williams erected 50 miles north of San Francisco.

Luminous Earth Grid, an array of 1,680 energy-efficient fluorescent lamps, swept over 10 acres of undulating landscape, 50 miles north of San Francisco. Said the artist, “I see the project as a poetic statement on the potential harmony between technology and nature.” Over a five year period, Williams launched a rigorous fund raising campaign throughout Northern California, and raised nearly half a million dollars to realize the massive project. It was widely acclaimed by critics around the globe and drew tens of thousands of visitors.

I would have loved to see this firsthand. (via behance)
