Bague Piccola

 


Designed by:
Patricia Urquiola and Eliana Gerotto for Foscarini

Why we love it: Ok, well… one or more of us might be an Apple fan, and this reminds us a lot of the Mac Pro casing. But as an object, it’s sleek, refined and modern. Love10

Anglepoise Fifty

Designed by: Anthony Dickens

Why we love it: What isn’t to love? This table lamp looks like a chocolate mould and deconstructs the classic desk light with it’s ‘two-face’ form.

Orchid

Designed by: Marc Pascal

Why we love it: Although made with polycarbonate, the forms of Pascal’s Orchid light feel very organic. The light is far from a static table lamp – tactile and a real centrepiece.

M2 Products – various stockists
 

Twiggy Tavolo

Designed by: Marc Sadler

Why we love it: This is simple, elegant and looks like a bluebell heavy with morning dew (poetic huh?). We can’t really think of anywhere this wouldn’t work.

Alchemy

Designed by: Arik Levy for Tronconi

Why we love it: What can we say? This has to be the perfect gift for any studious chemist. This is such a fun, playful, yet graceful design with satin-nickel-finished metal the light has a glass diffuser with tiny glass spheres.

Core Furniture

Air lamp

Designed by: Ray Power for LZF

Why we love it: It’s hard to believe this light is made from one single sheet of Polywood®, but it is. Simple in form, minimal materials, curvy – what more coud you want? Oh, yeah, it comes in 8 different colours.

KEZU

Table Jewellery

Designed by: Volker Haug

Why we love it: We love Volker’s mischievous, charismatic lights. This table lamp has a form made of a single bent length of bronzed brass for an industrial feel. It’s a bit like a black piece of neon tubing – so cool.
