The design of the wooden frame was inspired by the mathematical illustrations and optical illusions by M.C.Escher, Oscar Reuterswärd and their likes, hence the name MCE Lamp.
Of course this “impossible” frame is nothing but possible and it’s sturdy construction allows the big glass bowl to rest safely. The glass bowl is blown in three different sizes as the frame and the generous bowl elegantly hides the light source. Depending on how you lean or tilt the bowl you can direct the light like a soft spotlight.
The lamp was launched during Salone del Mobile 2014 by the Belgian design brand PER/USE at the Per/Use own exhibition Brera Design District in Via Dell’Orso 12.
The MCE lamp was originally designed as a one-off piece for the Glass Elephant exhibition during Stockholm Design Week.
The exhibition was a collaboration between Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and ABB.

Ledwork is such a cool product! It is a highly tangible autonomous light that respond to touch and movement. It is modular so it forms a swarm of light in which new patterns constantly emerge.
This invites to observe, explore and construct new physical configurations.

Latvian design studio Mammalampa created a collection of lights called The Bride.
The Bride’s “dress” is created from paper presenting this traditional lamp material in an unusual solution. As light shines through the paper, you will find yourself infused by an aura of airy lightness ; almost as if the lamp were not subject to the law of gravity. This most definitely a lamp with a gender – the atmosphere created by the Bride is truly feminine.
Entirely handmade, each Bride has her own personality characterized by the unique pattern in which her shade is woven with the personal touch of the weaver who created the pattern. no two Brides on earth are the same!
The collection is comprised of ceiling lamps in two sizes and a kindred floor lamp and table lamp.

We love the this minimalist table lamp by Taiwanese design studio, Kimu. By using the flat border to emulate the traditional appearance of lanterns, The New Old Light continued its style in the plane quadrant. With the change of the wood proportion of The New Old Light, which produced the extension of breathing in a virtual space, the air particles seem to be paused at the moment of light on.
Price : $330 per unit

The Parallel Series by an independent Minneapolis-based glass studio Hennepin Made brings together the rich complimentary duo of spun aluminum and hand blown glass. In designing these lights we were searching for a pairing of materials that created a dynamic contrast while allowing for an elegant harmony. With the options of vibrant colors or subtle tones, these handcrafted lights can make a bold statement or quietly bring together any space.
