Following his ’28′ series of pendant lamps, the Vancouver- based architect and designer Omer Arbel has realised this series of striking lighting elements for the Canadian lighting specialists Bocci. Employing a similar technique to that originally developed by Arbel for the ’28′ collection, in this series ‘large glass spheres are blown, and then a multitude of white cavities are introduced into them haphazardly,intentionally intersecting and colliding with each other .’ ’38′ was showcased in a special large-scale lighting installation during this year’s Salone del Mobile at Spazio Rossana Orlandi. Watch ’38′ being produced in the video below.

Imagine, as a manufacturer, that your potential market is two billion consumers worldwide. This almost inconceivable figure is the ultimate scale of d.light’s ambition, a consumer-products company set up by a pair of social entrepreneurs in 2007 to design and product lighting solutions for the one in four people on this planet who live without electricity. With two million lives already positively affected by d.light’s innovative solar-powered lamps and counting, the company’s story is only just beginning.

'Break' by Vibia

'Break' by Vibia

The Spanish manufacturer Vibia recently presented ‘Break’ a reduced and very architectural appearing outdoor lamp.

The designers, Xuclà & Alemany created large vertical, sculptural block that supports the lamp and the head that appears to separate, leaving open a small slit through which the beam of light emerges.

The massive concrete lamp comes in different sizes and finishes that allow it to fit into different environments: from the most industrial and urban concrete finish and the rustic rusted finish to modern lacquered finishes in white or silver. The available sizes are the 12-cm wall lamp, the 43-cm version is designed for smaller spaces and the the tallest with 81 cm height. The light passes through a methacrylate diffuser capable of enduring tough outdoor conditions.
