Lighting by Louis Poulsen

Louis Poulsen has some of the most iconic mid century design in the field of lighting. I recently visited their website and looked through their “projects” section. I was really taken with these black and white interiors paired with all sort of wonderful Louis Poulsen designs. A “holy grail” for me would be a large copper Artichoke light. The way they reflect light creating layers of orange glowing light is rad, yup rad.

A massive sputnik chandelier by .PSLAB

This massive sputnik chandelier by .PSLAB makes its new home in the THE JANE Restaurant in Antwerp, Belgium. I don’t know how many times I have written about the work of .PSLAB, maybe because their work is outstanding. With this project they were able to collaborate with Piet Boon architects. Not only did they design,fabricate and install this massive piece of art but they also designed the lighting for the rest of the areas of the restaurant. They made a really nice video documenting the processes, make sure to click READ MORE to watch the video.

Copper lighting by Anour

The slim modern copper lighting by Anour is a fantastically minimal design. The liner design offers a design element that may surprise some with the fact that it is a lighting fixture. I especially like the cross or plus sign, how ever you choose to look at it. The aged green copper patina is quite nice as well.

Anour is a Danish design company established in 2007 in Copenhagen. The name Anour is derived from the founder, Architect Arash Nourinejad, and in short means light in Farsi.

My top picks from City Furniture.be

I realize this may be a “lazy post” but I have always been impressed with City Furniture.be and their selection and mostly how they capture their pieces. I have seen plenty of other do “top pics” from 1stdibs so why not City. You can find them in Antwerpen, Belgium but they ship all over the world. You can also look through their past sales, if anything go get an education.

Porcelain art by Ábel Lakatos

I have always loved Porcelain art in what ever from it maybe take. I have a growing collection of German pieces that look so good when grouped together. Porcelain has many properties and Ábel Lakatos from Budapest, Hungary has leaned to use these properties to make beautiful and functional art. The Porcelain Chandelier is truly a thing of beauty. The positive for casting was made of glass. It gives a smoother surface and emables fine, geometric shapes. Could you imagine this design on a larger scale? the Polyunomi cup also allows light to shine through certain areas. The clear glaze was only added to the inside allowing a rougher outer exterior. This allows for a more secure grip.

flow(t) a contemporary chandelier by Nao Tamura

This contemporary chandelier by Nao Tamura is aptly named flow(t). The pieces are inspired by the colors of the Venetian lagoon. Each pieces has its own shape and when they are grouped together they create and amazing sculptural quality that is engaging from every angle. I have alway been intrigued by glass and its ability to bend and transform light while taking on different shapes and colors. Nao Tamura has created such a stunning piece I see it more of an artists installation than a light fixture.
