Luceplan's Costanzina Pendant Light
Designed by Paolo Rizzatto
Small but sprightly, Paolo Rizzatto's Costanzina pendant lights for Luceplan pack a lot of personality into a classic form
Paolo Rizzatto designed the Costanzina collection to be a little sister to his own Costanza collection for Luceplan.

Parachilna's Petra M Table Light
Designed by Jordi Veciana
Available in large, medium, and small sizes, Jordi Veciana's Petra M table light for Parachilna creates a warm yet formidable ambience
Carved from blocks of solid alabaster, Parachilna's Petra table lamp uses its simple, angular form to draw attention to the way that its veined surface interacts with the dimmer-controlled light coming from within. In Petra, designer Jordi Veciana contrasts the heavy, solid nature of alabaster with the weightless, almost ethereal quality of the light it produces.
Ideal for residential and hospitality applications, Petra M table light is a beautiful combination of concept, engineering, and technology—in other words, precisely what we'd expect from Parachilna.
The use of veined alabaster means every Petra table lamp is as distinct and unique as you are
Louis Poulsen's AJ table Light
Designed by Arne Jacobsen
A lithe austerity marks the distinctive form of AJ table light, designed for Louis Poulsen by the legendary Arne Jacobsen, granting it a balance between dignity and fun

Moooi's Flock of Light Chandelier
Designed by Studio Toer
Studio Toer's Flock of Light chandelier for Moooi draws the eye just enough to suggest your taste, but is discreet enough to avoid announcing it
Moooi's Flock of Light suspension light is a almost effervescent in its lightness. In its gently intricate shape, delicate bronze wires and soft white diffusers dance perform a static dance of presence and absence.
This poetic chandelier is a typically intriguing statement light from Studio Toer. Since its founding in 2011 by partners Castor Bours and Wouter Widdershoven, Studio Toer has devoted itself to exactly this kind of conceptual exploration through designer lights and objects that challenge established norms in material, concept, and technology.
Flos's In Vitro Collection
Designed by Philippe Starck

With the In Vitro collection of designer lights for Flos, legendary polymath designer Philippe Starck attempted to create the illusion of light without a source. In every In Vitro light, the integrated LED hidden within the cap casts its light down to be caught by the transparent blown-glass diffuser.
Combining manufacturing and magic, the refined industrial character of In Vitro makes it ideal for indoor and outdoor applications.

Pablo's Sky Pendant Collection
Designed by Pablo Studio
Pablo's Sky Dome pendant combines direct and indirect light in its lithely energetic form.
As a brand, Pablo embraces a sensibility that combines cutting-edge technology and techniques with traditional Spanish design sensibility. Featuring dim-to-warm LED technology, Pablo's Sky collection of lights offers a range of decorative lighting solutions to illuminate and accentuate the character of your space.
Designed with residential, contract, and hospitality applications in mind, the Sky collection begins with Sky Solo pendant light. A refined disc hanging from a metal rod, projecting diffuse light upward and downward, Sky Solo is the foundation upon which the collection is built. To this narrow, minimalist form Sky Dome suspension light adds a curved upper shade, which catches the uplight and reflects it back as a softened echo of the downlight.
Last, and particularly useful in cafes, restaurants, and busy offices: Sky Sound suspension light replaces the curved shade with a flat circle of sound-dampening acoustic material that reduces ambient noise for a comfortable dining or working experience.

Italamp's Regolo Linear Suspension Light
Designed by Stefano Traverso
Stefano Traverso's Regolo linear suspension light for Italamp is sleek and refined—but also profound
One of the difficulties linear suspension lights pose for designers is finding a way to make your design distinct and beautiful. For Italamp's Regolo suspension light, lighting designer Stefano Traverso did this through the addition of a simple marble sphere, creating a plethora of evocative contrasts.
The long, narrow beam is suspended by twin drop cables, which are hidden at their junction point by the ball of Calacatta marble. Located at the centre of the beam, this sphere emphasizes Regolo pendant's core theme: balance. This theme is further drawn out of the forms of the key elements: a long, light, narrow beam and a round, heavy, solid marble sphere. Between the luxury of its materials and the depth of its concept, Regolo linear suspension light sets itself apart in a distinguished field.
Cerno's Spero Collection
Designed by Cerno
Cerno's Spero pendant lights are almost casual in their elegance
As a brand, Cerno is known for lighting designs that indulge in a clean, simple elegance born of function-oriented engineering; the Spero collection is no exception. Structurally, it is as simple as a metal tube hanging from a leather strap—but there's more to Spero's design than that.
Cunningly-emphasized details complicate its profile, but without being overt. The strap and the shade are connected with pronounced metal accents that draw the eye just enough. Subtle details like this are what assert the presence of Spero pendant light and Spero wall light in a space without being disruptive.
Restrained, but still present, Spero wall sconce is perfect for minimalist decor
Slamp's Tulip Collection
Designed by Marc Sadler
Individually hand-crafted, every individual diffuser in Marc Sadler's Tulip cluster suspension light for Slamp is entirely unique.
The newest of the new, Slamp's Tulip collection of lights has only just been released. Even so, we're expecting big things from this naturally elegant collection from genius lighting designer Marc Sadler.
Named for its obvious floral inspiration, each Tulip cluster suspension light is comprised of multiple brushed brass stems, each one tipped by an LED under a tulip-inspired diffuser. Because they are hand-sculpted from Slamp's unique line of technopolymers, every individual tulip diffuser is entirely unique.
The key feature that sets Tulip apart from all the rest of Slamp's thirty-year history is the inclusion of metal elements beyond the simply structural. The brushed brass stems add balance to the diffusers' visual profile. Meanwhile, intricately-woven copper wires run between the individual flowers, catching the light in their vivaciously chaotic lines. The slight, delicate character of Tulip suspension lights make them ideal for dining rooms, foyers, and anywhere that yearns for a touch of the ethereal.
Available in a range of pre-constructed clusters or as elements ready for your creative touch, every Tulip cluster light from Slamp features individually hand-moulded diffusers
