beautiful organic chair with light by Ontwerpers.nu
from the website :
Material: fiber reinforced artificial resin, steel construction
Colour: blue / white Size: 120 x 155 x 210 cm.
Deep sea fish becomes furniture.
Some deep sea creatures catch their food with lights on their heads. These striking animals have been an inspiration for a chair with a light, organically shaped. The Light Up would be a real eye catcher in a lounge or a waiting room, but also the living room would benefit from this special object. We have paid special attention to the ergonomics of this chair, which will benefit your back. The Light Up is made of maintenance free material and will look great in the garden too.

As a kid I loved playing with construction toys like legos and k’nex. Vanja Valencak must have also enjoyed these toys because he designed this amazing customizable lighting concept. This concept gives users the opportunity to of have lighting formed into infinite combinations. Each lighting element snaps into one another, so you can add curves, angels, or straight pieces for however long you want. Your imagination can go wild and you can create two demential or 3D lighting shapes. If you get bored of your design, you can simply pull it apart and create something else.

File this under the “Why didn’t I think of that?” category! Nieuwe Heren, a Dutch design firm ran by two designers in their twenties, came up with a chair and lamp combo that could be accommodated in the smallest of spaces. They made it to provide parents a seat on which to read their children a bedtime story with a lamp at the ready. When you’re done using it, lean it against the wall and leave the lamp on for a bit of ambient light. Cool.

The Lightbodies are life-sized human shapes made by artist Kilu. Male and female human forms become functional sculptures when their heads conceal vibrantly colored lightbulbs surrounded by a shade.
The shades made from multi-layered coated and foiled paper (black and gold foil for the males, white and silver foil for the females) and the lamps are equipped with 6' long cords.
They invite a sense of humor, as they become active participants in its surrounding space. Especially after dawn, the emitted light (pink for the woman, orange for the male) creates a mesmerizing, color-filled atmosphere.

I absolutely love the Cherries Lamp series by Nika Zupanc. In her work, Nika reinterprets everyday objects as she thematizes the role of women in the predominantly masculine world of design. The Black Cherry Lamp is a modular assembly of lamps that pays homage to every single cherry in the world blessed with a shape that is simple and mysterious at the same time.
The suspended lamp is made of blown glass bulb that is hanging on a metal tubing. The lamp is available as single cherry, twin cherries or triplets.
The Cherries lamps will be shown as part of the exhibition Silent Revolutions: Contemporary Design in Slovenia, which will be presented for the first time during London Design Festival at Tent London September 22-25, 2011. Silent Revolutions brings together more than 25 selected works in the first extensive international presentation of Slovene product design of the last two decades. more info at www.mao.si.

reinterpreting the graphic patterns woven into traditional kilims, 'lamp e' from serbian studio kako.ko translates geometric elements
into a versatile industrial piece. 'the lamp is designed to be playful and stimulating for the user, inviting interaction and repositioning,'
note the designers. 'conceived as a simplified 'light line,' this lamp can be used in variety of the situations: as reading desk lamp
or as sculptural lighting object.'
produced by buck doo, 'lamp e' is made of an extruded aluminum profile and energy-efficient LED lights.
