1. With its exaggerated organic form, Karim Rashid’s Nearco for Artemide is quintessential Rashid. As a ceiling or recessed lamp, the fixture’s light source is hidden in the central arm. Made from moulded polyethlyne, Nearco comes in a mirror or matte white finish.
2. A personal favourite, Shigeru Ban’s Yumi for FontanaArte is a super-svelte floor lamp made from a composite material. Its seamless lamp head is equipped thin an 18-Watt LED strip.
3. Providing a warm glow, Claesson Koivisto Rune’s Baklava lamp for Swedish manufacturer Örsjö is shrouded in three layers of fabric that are secured with a delicate bow.
