The disadvantage of using normal lamp shades above your table is that they block your view as soon as you stand up. These transparent shades don't while their volume still nicely fills the space. By Giorgio Cattelan
Inspired by traditional Italian craftsmanship and mixed with Nordic simplicity, Fuse is a lamp in which the tactility of the materials plays an essential role. The result is a soft porcelain pendant lamp accentuated by a wooden pendant holder that together emulate the warm glow created within each cylindrical shade. Available in two sizes and three colors, there’s a style for every taste and motif! http://www.yankodesign.com
Designed in Denmark and exclusive to Heal’s in the UK, the Bend Table Lamp is a retro styled design that is in-keeping with the contemporary trend for mixed material lighting. The geometric silhouette wraps an ash bent wood frame around minimal white shade to create a lightweight lamp ideally suited to a sofa or bedside table.
