Antoni Arola has an amazing and strongly diverse portfolio. His design includes interiors, lighting, packing and other expressions of art. It is obvious that was taken with one lighting design in particular. The Flamingo lighting is stunning to look at and appears as though there are quite a few different combinations. UFOs met jelly fish but the ambient light is stunning. My background is graphic design so I really appreciate the package design as well.
CTO Lighting has some really beautiful lighting designs. The minimal approach are the designs that I find most interesting. The choice of materials ad a nice level of sophistication. CTO has done a fantastic job at placing their design in rooms that let the lighting stand out. I admire a company with a catalogue that looks this good. My favorite designs have to be the minimal globe and rod design.
SHAPE UP lighting by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio instantly caught my attention. Ladies & Gentlemen Studio has some other great projects but this particular lighting fixture with all of it’s possible configurations made me excited. The different diffusers with their simple shapes make for an almost graphic approach where the cord connects the objects. The materials used are honest and true. The color combinations are complimented by the brass weights and ceiling fixture.
Apparatus Studio creates some elegant lighting that has just a hint of industrial. I recognized their work right away but I guess I hadn’t come across their name. GABRIEL HENDIFAR and JEREMY ANDERSON have quite an amazing portfolio of modern lighting along with a group of objets for the home. The TRIAD fixture has me mesmerized with all of the variations and possibilities, you know, the ones that look like snow cones.
Galerie Kreo produces and showcases original work by Contemporary designers in a different rage of mediums. I came across their website and was instantly drawn to their “SHOWS”. The displays that are produced to highlight these designers are quite pleasing to look at and probably even better in person. The statement “operating like a ‘design laboratory” dedicated to research” is consistent with the term “Contemporary designers” as the designers are experimenting as they design.
DIM Lighting Atelier has some stunning, one of a kind lighting fixtures. I admire that these pieces are created out of other industrial waste so to speak. If you click through to the site you will some amazing details found on different parts of the lighting. Sculpture would be another definition of the creations, art that happens to provide light.
DIM is an independent atelier devoted to the design of unique and limited edition lighting fixtures. It is a place where the passion for art, functional design, and craftsmanship come together to create exclusive lighting objects. Each unique piece in the collection is meticulously handcrafted from salvaged vintage or antique metal objects.
