From terracotta and bronze to concrete and glass, decorative wall sconces can help to define the vibe of a space. These new launches by Contardi, In Common With, Brokis and Viso embrace rich materials and geometry in unique ways.
Designed by Studiopepe for Contardi, Stick is more gallery-worthy sculpture than conventional lamp. Its triangular frame in satin copper or satin gold nickel (the terracotta shown is from a special edition for Fuorisalone) is fitted with a ribbed diffuser specifically chosen to produce playful and atmospheric illumination: When approached from the front, the light is even and pure, but when viewed from an angle, it takes on an entirely unique effect.
As its name implies, this sconce by In Common With projects light both upward and downward to create a gentle wash against the wall. The fully customizable fixture can be specified with matching or contrasting shades and hardware in Brass or Patina Brass.
An exercise in material exploration that expresses an architectural sensibility, the Overlay wall lamp by Lucie Koldova for Brokis nestles a smooth cylindrical glass sleeve (frosted or clear) into a concrete cuff embedded with upcycled glass shards. The fixture is lit by a hand-blown glass light tube that extends from within.
Characterized by its fluted glass shade, which casts light in a calming array effect, the Linea Glass collection’s vertical wall sconce by Viso is handsomely accented by anodized gold or polished chrome. Two sizes are available, as is a horizontal suspension version.
Four sconces with characters that run from old-world to avant garde.
