Pendant lamps with fans, sconces with no wiring – these fixtures by Danese, Fontana Arte, Light Years and more make for brilliant showpieces in any home.
1 100% Fluid by Danese
Ross Lovegrove’s LED suspension light cleverly incorporates a fan (with minimum energy input) that regulates air quality in a small area, while a touch dimmer located on the fixture controls its illumination. 100% Fluid can also be reoriented to work as a task lamp, offering direct and indirect lighting at the same time.
2 Manta by Fontana Arte
Manta beautifully solves the problem of having no available wiring, allowing the wall or ceiling (or floor) fixtures to be installed almost anywhere. Several of its large plastic plates can be powered through an attachment affixed to only one of its LED lights, and positioned to offer direct or indirect lighting.
3 Aeon Rocket by Light Years
Morten Voss’s accordian-like pendants, in black or grey, combine metal and polypropylene. Its diffuser, ringed in gauzy bands composed of recyclable polypropylene woven into round openings, allows light to stream through while concealing the bulb. The dramatic pendant is suited to hospitality, retail and residential settings.
4 Aspen by B.Lux
Werner Aisslinger took cues from Amercian interior design of the 1960s for his charming collection of lamps named after the Colorado ski resort. Defined by its double shade, in two sizes and many combinations of blue, yellow, orange, green, grey or white, Aspen uses LED, halogen and fluorescent bulbs, and is suited to both residential and contract environments.
5 Counterbalance by Luceplan
Daniel Rybakken’s wall light for Luceplan appears to defy the laws of physics. Thanks to gear wheels and a counterweight, the LED lamp fluidly moves any which way while maintaining its balance. It’s available in black painted steel and this new shade of grey, with a vaulted aluminum top
