Leo Scarff Design is a studio that creates lights, furniture and sculptural structures. I really like their designs they are modern and fresh.

Have you ever seen the colourful lights in the  lobby in Marks Spencer’s in Grafton street? they are responsible for that piece of art! I always liked them and I often wondered who made them!

Take a look to their web site they really have innovative design!

 

Halley outdoor light

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Just looking at this light it makes me want to do organise a dinner party in my garden! (if I would have one ……..)

This is the Halley outdoor light from Vibia it is inspired by a streaming comet in the night sky! It has 21 watt LED strips and it is softned by a frosted diffusing lens making it a friendly companion to nocturnal diners!

 

Buying lights

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Today I would like to talk about a brilliant web site that I have found  light11.ie.

In this website you can buy very nice designer lights but also lights that are not so expensive and that are as equally nice!

I think that the web site layout is very good. There are different sections by different types of lights (indoors, outdoors), by where you want to place the lights or even by colour!

The feature that I like the most is the fact that once you choose a light that you like and you want to find more information on that light, the website provides you with a full specs for the light. This means it gives you details on: manufacture, designer, material, measurements, weight, CABLE LENGTH, Type of bulbs, SPARE PARTS, and the one I love the most HOW ENERGY EFFICIENT is the light!!!!

I love this because it might help you decide on buying it or not!

This web site has also a full section on LEDs lights! and please do not be so reluctant on buying them. LEDs technology has changed so much in the last years. I know that LED is short for ” Looks Extremely Dim” but  this is the name they were given in the mid-1920s when they were invented! Now new research has shown that you can even get a whopping 300 lumens from one LED. So embrace the future and also help our planet!

 

 

Normann Copenhagen lights

Friday, December 16th, 2011

Normann Copenhagen has a new collection of lamp lights! I love the Bau lamps. They are an explosion of colour! They are sculptural hanging lamps designed by Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt. The design is based on interlocking geometric circles, sticking out in all directions.

I really like them!! So colourful!!!!!!!! They go from 190€ to 230€ and they are going to be on sale soon!

You can buy them in the online shop.
