Reminding us of the scary childhood stories, when the biggest challenge was to walk through the enchanted forests that completely transformed themselves after the nightfall, the two artists, Thyra Hilden and Pio Diaz, together known as HildenDiaz created a unique work of art, that can be hanged…from the ceiling. The artistic item is called Forms in Nature. Quite impressing when the light is turned on, the enigmatic mystery-generator chandelier is one item you can ignore if you (still) like to wander through the wild woods. Here is what the artists have to say about their less common work: “Using a simple action, such as intensifying the brightness at the centre of the artwork, the light transforms the space and adds character, such the work throws oversized shadows onto walls and ceilings in the space in which it hangs.”

Created by young Finland based designer, Harri Koskinen, the Block Lamp is an ingenious decorative light to own– and a classic at that. Playing up a whole slew of contrasting elements and contradictions of the world, this award winning light design is simple but progressive.Playing up opposites like fire and ice, hot and cold really make this design stand out among others, which likely helped when it became a MoMA staple just over a decade ago. This light could be utilized successfully within a contemporary, shabby chic, industrial or traditional space with the same “wow” effect. Not to mention, most of the process is done by hand, down to hand casting and an exponentially long cooling process as well.

60 Pendant is a minimalist light designed by Canada-based designer Jonathan Sabine. The panels that comprise the body of the 60 Pendant are created through a combination computer controlled machine and skilled hand work. The fabrication process transforms thin steel sheets into the body of a pendant.
These same panels that function as the pendant body act additionally as a light diffuser by way of the delicate perforated pattern cut in their lower half. The name 60 refers to the corner angles of the of an equilateral triangle, a shape that appears in the the hexagonal form of the fixture, and which is also the basis of the perforated pattern on the underside of the fixture.
Jonathan Sabine is trained in woodworking and cabinetmaking. This history informs his current product and furniture design practice, which he established after working as lead designer at Castor Design. He is the co-founder of Chromoly, a creative studio run with Adam Pickard and collaborates closely with Toronto based MSDS studio. His design the Bourgeois Brass Knuckle is in SFMOMA’s permanent collection.
Shelter is a simple, characterful lamp that emits a cosy light onto its surroundings. The conical shape of its foot and rounded shade provide a soft and friendly feel adding a delightful contrast to the clean and sharp lines of the lamp. Shelter was designed by the Danish design duo HolmbäckNordentoft for Normann Copenhagen and is available as both a table and floor lamp.
Shelter is a play on both proportions and details. The white inner side of the shade provides a reflective effect while its wide, curved shape goes to direct the light making it pleasant and anti-dazzling.
