Spanish designer Martín Azúa has created the Light Container pendant light made from a painted iron frame and a blown glass lampshade.
A mass of light inside a metallic basket that seems floating. Light is immaterial, but at the same time lamps are also objects. In this case we treat light as something with weight and volume.
It is made in three different sizes that can be hung individually or in groups of 2 or 3. The glass diffuser generates a nice warm dim light with soft shadows, suitable for restaurant tables, counters, receptions, meeting and working tables. Its sculptural character allows the personalization of singular halls, stairwells…

“In the infinite variety of architectural examples I’ve always been attracted by Trulli* . Their shapes and colours, their apparently randomly collocation in groups … blew into my heart. You cannot forget the heat of their embrace. The smell of the sky above them is not clearing away with the distance. Slivers of our past Please hold tight! To you, my attention” Designer Edmondo Testaguzza for Karman

Australia-based designer Stephanie Ng has created Scoop, a beautiful minimalist pendant light made from wood and metal that was inspired by an ice cream cone.
A simplistic form with clean contours gently wraps around the globe as tightly as possible and is reminiscent of an ice cream cone. The bright coloured ring suggests different flavours that is suitable for various interiors with option to install with bright coloured cords. The top of the light is turned hard wood and provides a tactile surface before curving into the metal spun cap that lives right on top of the globe to minimize glare from light shining directly at you. This allows the eye to wander above to appreciate the beauty in the natural element of the design of the wood grains and knots. Works individually or as part of a collection.
