Shape Up Collection by Roll & Hill

The Shape Up Collection of lighting by Roll & Hill was designed by Seattle-born, Brooklyn-based Ladies & Gentlemen Studio. The largest of the pieces is Shape Up 5-Piece Chandelier, which perhaps does the best job of highlighting the geometric playfulness of the collection. A modular system of cords and hubs, Shape Up 5-Piece Chandelier can be composed “in response to a space’s architecture and function.” The Cone and Hemisphere are available in three finishes: blackened steel, brushed brass, an...

Louis Poulsen Releases Silver Version of Popular Patera Pendant

It’s been almost four years since Louis Poulsen released its Patera pendant, a modern take on the chandelier. Now, the Danish lighting manufacturer has added a new silver foil version designed by Øivind Slaatto to its lighting collection. The update is a step away from minimalism, adding reflective properties to the pendant that catches the eye whether or not it’s illuminated. Similar to its white counterpart, it’s available in three diameters: 450 mm, 600 mm, and 900 mm. Patera is equipped to ...

California Made: Industrial-Chic Pendant Lights from LA

Rule of thumb at Remodelista: when you come across really good lighting that is both affordable and made in the US, post about it immediately. When we first saw these pendant lamps from Los Angeles company Wrk-Shp a few years back, they were too good to keep to ourselves, and they’re as fresh-looking now as they were then. Founded by an architect (Ryan Upton) and an architect-turned-fashion designer (Airi Isoda) and based in Los Angeles, Wrk-Shp defines themselves as a multi-disciplinary studio ...

Beautiful Vision: Nuura’s Miira Collection

Miira is a testament to the name (translated as “beautiful vision”) and to the exquisite touch of Danish lighting designer, Sofie Refer. The idea is to begin with the sublime form of the perfect globe—fashioned in mou...

Float Away with the Molo Cloud Softlight Pendant

Recent Frame award winner for Trade Fair Design/Best Use of Material, the Molo Cloud Softlight Pendant is airy and effervescent, perfectly capturing the look of those soft, billowy phenomena of nature. Made from a nonwoven polyethylene textile with the look and texture of paper, Cloud (just like the namesake) has multiple personalities.

New Work by Ingo Maurer

La Festa delle Farfalle and Oops, two new lighting pieces by Ingo Maurer, debuted at IMM Cologne 2019 in January. The lighting studio has also recently introduced a limited-edition version of Zettel’z 5. La Festa delle Farfalle continues Maurer’s exploration of butterflies in “a poetic suspension luminaire” made of paper.

Steal This Look: A Grand Scale Double-Height Kitchen in Brooklyn

In an 1850s brick townhouse in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood, serial renovators Jean Lee and Tzu-Wei Lee called on architect Elizabeth Roberts to rethink the building, which had been divided intwo four apartments, as one. The biggest change? A three-story addition to the back of the building which now houses the fully custom double-height kitchen. The 1,200-square-foot space is inspired by modern Shaker design with an almost Seventies style twist. That’s thanks to beadboard-paneled cabinet...

LEDS C4 TUBS Downlight

The LEDS C4 TUBS Downlight is an aluminum pendant with a methacrylate diffuser and a seamless, engaging bank of luminous LEDs. This is a versatile piece with a contemporary aesthetic. The form and structure give it an ethereal aspect—so light and lithe it seems as if it’s hardly there. The aesthetic proposition with The LEDS C4 TUBS Downlight if that the actual source of illumination is the most important aspect of the light. Indeed, TUBS’ supporting structure essentially vanishes above the ev...

PH Snowball Celebrates Six Decades: 1958-2018

Along with PH 5 and PH Artichoke, PH Snowball is celebrating six decades of Danish design. PH Snowball was originally created in 1958 by Poul Henningsen (the titular PH) for Louis Poulsen. The iconic PH Snowball ascribes to Henningsen’s philosophy of making comfortable light. Matte undersurfaces and glossy top surfaces diffuse and distribute light. “When the light is switched on, the top portion is illuminated while the bottom part remains dark,” explains Louis Poulsen. Besides the quality of ...

Iconic Flos IC Light Gets a Cool New Finish

The Flos IC Light by Michael Anastassiades remains as compelling today as it was four years ago when it first debuted—especially given the addition of a new slick black finish. A collection of floor, table, wall, and suspension lamps featuring a spherical diffuser perched precariously (so it would seem) on a cylindrical shaft, IC is an arresting piece that appears to defy gravity. The name derives from “Identity Codes,” an assignation used by the British police to signify different ethnic grou...

Sustainable LED Lighting by Stickbulb

Stickbulb is a NYC-based lighting manufacturer born of a singular missive with an ecological concern. The challenge was to create arresting lighting designs that could only be manufactured locally and affordably—within a 5-mile radius of the city. The resultant sustainable LED lighting is akin to “a light-up erector set of interchangeable components that allows for unlimited customization and creativity.” The lights are comprised of reclaimed and sustainably sourced wood and energy efficient L...

Galliano by Delightfull

The steel lamp comes in beautiful finishes, including gold, silver, white, black, and rose gold. Besides the round suspension ...

Little Black Lamp: An Elegant, Understated New Lighting Collection from In Common With

A few months ago we discovered new New York City–based brand In Common With, with well-priced lighting in pared-back designs (see: A New Collection of Customizable Lighting). Now I’m intrigued by their newest collection, Arundel, in collaboration with online housewares retailer TRNK—and not because it’s named for a small town in Maine. Take a look.

The Trendsetter: 9 Of-the-Moment Ideas to Steal from Hotel Joaquin in Laguna, California

Over the summer I spent a full week admiring, from afar, interior designer Robert McKinley’s latest opening in Montauk: a rehabbed beach bungalow with a distinctly seventies vibe (call it the “it” look of the summer—see A Seventies-Style Shoppable Airbnb in Montauk). Now I’ve spent another week poring over McKinley’s latest endeavor, this one on the opposite coast. The newly opened Hotel Joaquin in Laguna, California, is a 22-room hotel revamped with sculptural lights, low-slung daybeds, and vin...

Vonn’s Delphinus Linear LED Chandelier

Linear LED lighting gets a new look with Vonn’s Delphinus 35” chandelier. At first glance, Delphinus looks nothing like the LED workhorse it is. The light’s distinctive aesthetic derives from its excellent imitation of vintage Edison bulbs. According to Vonn, “clear glass has become the new chic as it allows the filament bulbs to be seen in all their glory.” The look of Delphinus thus evokes early 20th Century steampunk, which gives users the best of both worlds: all the benefits of LED techno...

Atomic Round by Delightfull

Portuguese lighting brand Delightfull has unveiled a new chandelier with a design emphasis on molecules, appropriately named Atomic Round. The brass and steel suspension lamp gives “a nod to the atomic age and race to space.” With a gold-plated finish, Atomic Round’s body, shaped like a planetary ring, shines bright. The attached globes, lacquered glossy black, connect to one another via fluted arms. The effect is almost animatronic. The inside of the globes are covered in a gold powder paint ...

The Kepler Luminaire by Innermost

Innermost’s Kepler luminaire is an innovative, ultra-thin light made of polycarbonate, steel, and micro-weave fabric. Named for Johannes Kepler, the German scientist who discovered the Supernova, Kepler definitely has a space-age, ethereal quality. Its thin silhouette and carefully placed pattern of stealthy LEDs make it appear like a lunar or extra-stellar body, as it seems to defy gravity while radiating light in all directions. Released this spring, Kepler participated in last month’s Darc...

Object of Desire: Julie Cloutier Stoneware Pendant Lamp

Tomales-based Julie Cloutier spent more than a decade working in small SF architecture firms before striking out on her own as a ceramicist. “My ceramic work focuses on handheld sculptures, functional wares and everyday objects,.” she says. “My architectural background informs my work,” which leans toward minimalism.
