The #Multipendantlight was created by #Danish #architect #LouisWeisdorf in #1972.  It is recognised as a part of the golden age of #danishdesign.  The #brass #pendantlight features rotational shades which can be moved to create many combinations, which can be adjusted to send the #light up, down, or asymmetrically, to create a stunning #ambient light feature.  Weisdorf describes the light : "Two cylindrical shapes lay the foundation of the lamp and a metal ring encompasses it and anchors…

Created 7 years after his #iconic #VPGlobe, the #Panto #pendant #light continues #VernerPanton's exploration of the #spaceage into the late seventies.  Whilst a work worthy of attention, the Panto was introduced at a time when Panton's work was beginning to move out of vogue.  Today the Panto is getting the recognition it deserves as a #timeless piece of #futuristic #design, worthy of a Stanley Kubrick space epic #interior.  Much like many of the greats in the #art and design fields…

#DanielTo and #EmmaAiston formed their design studio @daniel_emma in 2008. Their aim was to create designs that are 'just nice', while drawing inspiration from #Australia's varied cultural influences.  The #Cherrylight is a #minimalist #pendant #light designed in #2015. Inspired by erasers of icecream sundaes that they collected as children, this light features the cherry-like sphere on the bottom.  The #light is available in white with a #gold #sphere, or black with a rainbow #plexiglass…

#Danish #Architect #KaareKlint designed the #interiors for his family's business #LeKlint when the first store opened in #Copenhagen in 1943.  #Klint designed the #LK101 or '#Fruitlamp' as a feature in the new store. It became their most popular #design, and it remains a top seller to this day.  The #lightshade is one of the most technical Le Klint #lights to produce. The #lantern was put into production in #1944, and is still manufactured using traditional hand folding techniques to create…

#Dutch mathematics professor #RaimondPuts created the #RaimondLED suspension #light in #2007. He brought his love of #geometry and precision into the #design of the globe.  The triangular #geometric structure is made from polished stainless steel that conducts electricity.  An LED light has been placed at each intersection of the structure, with the largest version having 252 LEDs.  When seen against a dark background, the light appears made of hundreds of tiny #stars, giving you your very…

Back in 1947, George Nelson was refitting his office and spotted a beautiful silk-covered #lamp from Sweden. Unfortunately he couldn't justify the cost of the lamp for his office, which got him thinking about creating his own low cost lighting solutions.  He remembered a photograph of Liberty ships being put into storage (mothballed), where plastic was sprayed over a metal framework, to provide a lightweight protective plastic barrier.  This inspired him to create a whole range of lamps…

When people think about beautiful #designs in #plastic from the #60s, a few names spring to mind.  Panton and Aarnio top most people's lists, but a lot of great pieces also came from #Italian #architect #VicoMagistretti.  Having made a living from standard fair architectural work, Vico made a successful career shift to #furniture #design in the 60s.  His work may not be as famous as some of his scandinavian contemporaries, but they remain best sellers and many pieces like his #DalùTableLamp…

The #Patera #pendant #light was inspired by the #Fibonacci sequence as it appears in #nature.  The Fibonacci #spiral occurs naturally in biology again and again, from seashells to pine cones and sunflowers... the pattern occurs so frequently that it's been attributed an almost esoteric quality.  The angled diamond shaped cells of the Patera light creates a soft even #glow in all directions whilst guarding against direct glare.  The light it emits is reminiscent of Poul Henningsen's early…

While #Swede #KurtNørregaard first trained as an #architect, his passion for #lighting developed when he was working as a consultant for #LouisPoulsen. In this role he was the product manager for #PoulHenningsen's PHlamp designs, and the influence can be seen in Nørregaard's creations.  Nørregaard's #Oslo light series was designed in #1991, especially for the offices of the #Norwegian Insurance company #Gjensidige.  Designed with office #interiors in mind, the #lights eliminate screen glare…
