Lighting designs are an absolute necessity in every home. An exquisite lighting design not only has the ability to illuminate any living space but also adds that extra oomph factor! I mean, of course, we need them to see in the dark, but as highly functional as they should be, a lighting fixture also needs to be aesthetically pleasing, adding an attractive and visually soothing element to your home or office space. From a levitating lightbulb lamp that quite literally uplifts your room’s decor to an umbrella lamp with LED lights – these unique lighting designs are what you need to elevate your living or working space!

1. Air-Shape Lamp

What if your light could bundle up a sense of joy and nostalgia while serving the primary necessity of lighting up your space? That is the package proposed by this conceptual lamp design named the Air-Shape Lamp. The shape, though seemingly random at first glance is meant to resemble the soap bubbles we make, surrounded by a ring of light, with the body adding a multi-hued radiance to the room.

Why is it noteworthy?

This lamp evokes emotions, bringing with it emotions and a smile. The lamp can be either hung on the wall or be used as a pendant lamp. Also given the playful nature of the bubbles it is inspired from, each lamp will have a unique shape – allowing the glass blowers who create the piece to have creative control over the design and each one being a singularly unique design.

What we like

  • Each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind

What we dislike

  • No complaints!

2. The Evaro Teardrop

Gif 1

This warm and minimal table lamp is called the ‘Evaro Teardrop‘. The soft lighting design features a warm wooden frame and an attractive lighting fixture. The intriguing light bulb floats in mid-air and plays with the magic of magnetism and levitation. It’s like a retro Edison bulb with an almost magical touch to it!

Why is it noteworthy?

The most alluring aspect of the Evaro, if you agree, is how elegant the lamp is despite its minimalist outlook. It has been designed to fill the space with a winning vintage aesthetic without hindering the modern stance of where it is placed. No matter how much you sit back and soak in the beauty of the lamp, the warm glow of an incandescent bulb is not going to hurt the eye. It’s perhaps going to only become enthralling with time and a piece of art to gawk at.

What we like

The power of magnetic induction holds an incandescent bulb suspending in mid-air

The power is transferred wirelessly from the lamp arm to the blub which illuminates in a warm yellow glow instantaneously

What we dislike

  • No complaints!

3. The Eclipse Lamp

Made from die-cast with an aluminum finish, the Eclipse looks almost like a bulky ring light affixed to your wall at first. The round cone-shaped body protrudes from the wall and seemingly emits faint light inside, occluded by a circular cover of the same black or white colorway.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Eclipse lamp already demonstrates the reason for its name, looking like an annular solar eclipse, where the moon is too far away to completely cover the sun, resulting in a ring of light.

What we like

  • What sets it apart from other wall lamps is how you can move that disc around 360 degrees

What we dislike

  • No complaints!

4. The Coral Blanche

Titled the Coral Blanche, this rather beautiful floor-standing light installation is a reminder that sometimes behind beauty lies immense pain. The rather eye-catching lighting design aims at raising awareness against coral bleaching, which is considered one of the largest threats to the ocean biosphere and to our planet as we know it.

Why is it noteworthy?

Coral Blanche is a white coral-shaped floor lamp with glowing orbs nestled on it, representing fish eggs. It’s a hauntingly beautiful metaphor of how eggs become more visible and vulnerable to predators as their coral home perishes.

What we like

  • The shape of a sea fan coral was chosen for its structural integrity, stability, and also its innate aesthetic beauty

What we dislike

  • No complaints!

5. The RAB L34

 The RAB L34 gives high bay lighting a more compact and space-efficient form, and in doing so, also gives it a distinct design that seems to come straight out of sci-fi space portals and alien ships.

Why is it noteworthy?

Most of us probably don’t think much about high bay lights compared to other forms of lighting. Being way up there, they don’t often have the chance to shine, no pun intended, in terms of visual appeal. Almost like a typical bulb, they’re seen as simple, functional products you don’t need to spend too much time on since few people look at them anyway. Unfortunately, that seems to be used as an excuse to skimp not only on design but most especially on the materials.

What we like

  • The shape of a sea fan coral was chosen for its structural integrity, stability, and also its innate aesthetic beauty

What we dislike

  • No complaints!

6. The Lamp One

With hundreds of LEDs encased under a layer of diffusing polymer, the Moonside Lamp One is a magical light that is ambient when you want, trippy when you need it, and can even synchronize to music to turn into a disco lamp.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Lamp One can be configured to light up in a single color, in a pre-determined pattern, or you can even choose from its multiple dynamic lighting themes, going from a fireplace-inspired glow to a psychedelic lava lamp with millions of colors.

What we like

  • It acts as a night lamp, a mood light, a cyberpunk lava lamp, a modern fireplace, or even a music-responsive mini disco-light

What we dislike

  • No complaints!

7. The Meta Parallel Black collection

There is also nothing that sparks thinking and interest than contrasting elements arranged in a balanced and beautiful manner, which is exactly what the Meta Parallel Black collection embodies.

Why is it noteworthy?

The completely black fixture contrasts and, in a way, softens the yellow light that comes off the tubes. The volcanic rocks’ rough surface also contrasts and complements the matte aluminum bars that hold the tubes together. Thin black cables suspend the stone and metal assembly, another pair of contrasting and balancing elements.

What we like

  • Decorative yet practical design

What we dislike

  • No complaints!

8. The Kartell TEA Lamp

Kartell Tea Table Lamp Prototype

Kartell Tea Table Lamp

The Kartell TEA Lamp is a functional table-top object that illuminates and also transforms into a stunning sculpture! The abstract shape of the lamp presents to us what appears to be hands holding a light in their palms.

Why is it noteworthy?

This product is another perfect example of “design meets functionality meets sustainability”. Kartell still has so much to do in the area of sustainability and planet-friendliness, but the TEA already lives up to the demands. It is now environmentally responsible and is exercising good sustainability practices, but the good work has just started.

What we like

  • Sustainable design
  • Acts as a table “companion”

What we dislike

  • No complaints!

9. The Umbrella Lantern

The Umbrella Lantern is a new kind of rainy day companion that has built-in LED lights that you can activate by just pushing a button. It will be useful if you’re walking down roads that don’t have good lighting and where cars rarely pass by so you don’t have any lighting source.

Why is it noteworthy?

During the daytime when you don’t need light, you can use it just like you would any regular umbrella. When sunlight starts disappearing, you can just press a button located in the umbrella’s handle so the LED lights are activated. The light is located just right underneath it and the light is able to transmit through the umbrella’s fabric so even your surroundings are lighted up as well. How much light is transmitted depends on the color of the umbrella that you have.

What we like

  • Functions as an umbrella and a lighting design

What we dislike

  • No complaints!

10. Infra Luna

For those who want to have a relaxing, spa-like experience at home or in their room, scent diffusers are a must-have as well as ambient lighting to suit the mood you want to create. There are of course different products and options available in the market for both these purposes but what if you could have both in one single device? This is what a Swedish scent brand has come up with in collaboration with a French light artist.

Why is it noteworthy?

Infra Luna is an industrial-looking combination of light and smells. Basically how it works is it heats up the candle wax and then diffuses the scent to fill up your room.

What we like

  • The device looks like a miniature time machine with its aluminum, circular frame

What we dislike

  • No complaints!
