There are objects that are part of our visual memory, perhaps because we have seen them in
photos or films but have never asked ourselves what they really mean. For example, those
large flared tubes on the bridge of ancient sailing ships. What exactly are they? Air conduits,
chimneys, megaphones, proboscises? Designers typically wonder about everything and
anything and if the designer is a young woman then these questions can take a very
special form. available at:

The Curl My Light line was designed by
Russian designer Dima Loginoff. This
group includes a family of pendants, table
and floor lamps that can be combined in
a space or used individually. The fixtures
are made in Italy by slicing a metal
cylinder in pieces and then welding the
pieces back together. This manual
process is made by expert artisans and
machinists to guarantee the highest
quality and workmanship.

his collection explores balance. There is a series of lights: table lights, wall lights, ceiling pendants
and ceiling mounted lights which take as their basic form a sphere that is perfectly balanced on
the edge of a rod. I came across an online video clip of a contact juggler. He was spinning a set
of spheres, moving them around on his arms and edge of his fingers. And as I got mesmerized by
the magic of his skill, suddenly the spheres look perfectly still. I wanted to capture that exact
moment. This was my starting point. available at:

A sculpture in light, the Holly Floor Lamp is defined by soft, soaring lines.  Drops of glass blown by a
craftsman create a stylized woman's profile that supports the lampshade.  The lampshade is
double layered and covered with ivory fabric.  The glass mutates as solid appears liquid, moulding
itself into volumes and voids of exquisitely visual beauty.  Price includes shipping to the USA.  
Manufactured by Poltrona Frau. available at:

Empatia is inspired by the association between the great glass-blowing tradition and the LED
technology of Artemide. High interest in the expression potentials of this material resulted into
co-operation with master glass blowers to gain full control of the special suppleness of Venetian
glass and to work on the balance between surface and light, between subtle densities and
transparencies. Hence clear, pure craft objects, each of them unique in all respects. Transparency
and opacity are wisely dosed to obtain a glass that reflects light without glaring
and without losing efficiency. Hence optical device, whose heart is a high-performance
LED-based light engine created separately from the glass emission body in favor of higher
thermal efficiency and performance. Light is controlled with maximum yield and driven
towards the glass diffuser through a transparent pipe with a very low absorption coefficient.

Nebula is a chic Mid-Century Modern sputnik fixture with a whimsical “head in the clouds”
aesthetic. Multi-sized opal white glass orbs attached to batons burst forth like clouds parting
after the rain from a shining center. Made of hand-worked wrought iron, each baton is
finished in carbide black with polished silver accents. available at:
