Among all fixtures – geometric, textural, linear, lavish, minimalistic, industrial, classic – you name it, the sculptural lamps deserve special attention. Made with layers and layers of high quality materials, they catch your eye and charm your heart.
Modern, elaborate lighting is really popular nowadays, as it’s functional, efficient, personable, and, with all the choices of beautiful lamps available, the possibilities are endless! Lighting fixtures not only illuminate and decorate our living spaces, they also tell our stories and show a little of our background. Here’s a roundup of the sculptural luminaries I’ve been admiring recently:
Made of the highest quality wood veneer, finished with Timberlite – a patented treatment from Lzf, the Agatha looks festive and welcoming in any environment. Available in multiple finishes and two sizes – small and large.
Available in 5 sizes and 4 finish options, the Discoco pendant from Marset has already become an icon for its sculptural design. An homage to the Louis Poulsen’s PH Artichoke, the Discoco softens the classic design with a light elegant touch.
LZF’s wood veneers are selected to reveal the best natural wood grain effects when illuminated. Totem is an abstract representation of a traditional spice market in Istanbul and is available in 10 classic and modern finishes.
Hand-crafted of real murano glass, the Avir 60 seems light and weightless when illuminated. The dozens of twisted glass come alive once lit. Available in 6 organic colors, this pendant looks best in modern living and dining rooms.
As with all Lzf lamps, the Anfora shows off real organic beauty and craftsmanship in every detail. Multiple strands of veneer strips twist and bow together in a braid-like pattern. Available in 10 neutral finishes, this portable lamp offers an honest design and endless possibilities.
This iconic Louis Poulsen pendant is composed of aluminum shades with a sand-blast glass shield. The tiered levels accentuate the light, and give this light sculptural appeal. Available in 5 classic finishes, it is a versatile solution for timeless modern interiors.
Part of the Stick Collection from Fabbian, the Stick table lamp has a natural, organic design. Reminiscent of oversized popsicle sticks, this lamp can be easily integrated into most modern interiors while providing soft diffused illumination.
This iconic Foscarini chandelier is available in all white or red and white diffuser options. The irregular shaped pieces almost take on an artistic pile of paper that’s fallen to the floor. Thanks to its high CRI, the fixture provides bright, vivid and direct light.
The multifaceted surface of this gorgeous lamp is composed of Lentiflex – a polycarbonate material, able to sustain and reflect light. This suspension light draws its from the delicate skirt of a ballerina and is suitable for use in both residential and commercial settings.
The Nevo Collection of lights from Arturo Alvarez is composed of metal and an award-winning, patented sculptural material Simetech, which is light, durable, and easy to maintain. Nevo Large Pendant offers an original visual and kinesthetic experience, and provides warm ambient light.
Composed of solid, artfully forged metal plates, the Flux is a representation of modern design, combined with traditional metal production techniques. Perfect for illuminating countertops, living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and hospitality spaces, this pendant is a contemporary sculptural piece.
