6 Artful Light Fixtures That Elevate Any Space

Brooklyn-based designer Feyza Kemahlioglu drew from her Turkish heritage to conceptualize her Pillars of Meerschaum collection, including this fixture dubbed Amber Treasure. Crafted from meerschaum – a soft white clay material found in Eskisehir, a small city in Turkey – the intricately detailed piece is perforated, allowing tiny beams of light to emanate through it. Gold Leaf is applied to the glass of the bulb as it is handblown, producing a mesmerizing one-of-a-kind pattern. wexlergallery.com

In The Abstract

Inspired by the work of the late artist Piet Mondrian, the Mondrian Floor Lamp pays tribute to abstract geometric art with its use of a simple rectangular frame and handmade Murano glass spheres sculpted by the team at the Italian design firm VeniceM. hollyhunt.com

Celestial Beauties

Brooklyn-based artisan Katie Stout designs home furnishings with an imaginative and often subversive approach, creating pieces that whimsically play with form and function. Her hand- built, glazed and lustered ceramic lamps are as playful as they are stylish. r-and-company.com

Hanging the Moon

A weighty marble wheel suspends from neon and brass in Farrah Sit’s Pingala. The pendant plays with gravity to produce a fixture that appears to float in the sky. Sit’s signature is both effortless and highly conceptual, producing boldly minimalist pieces for the home. farrahsit.com

Written In The Stars

Softly colored glass rondels mounted on brushed brass mimic the formations of constellations in the sky on the aptly named Constellation Wall Sconce. Configured in unlimited ways and colors, the light can be affixed to the ceiling as well for a truly starlit sensation. tracygloverstudio.com 

Alien Territory

Inspired by Plasterglass, a unique fiberglass resin born out of the Ralph Pucci mannequin factory, sculptor John Koga created these lighting fixtures by first molding them with clay. Koga, who typically works with marble and plaster, was fascinated with how Plasterglass imitates those materials resulting in his distinct Aluala (Sunset Glow) Table Lamp and Hoku (Star) Floor Lamp. ralphpucci.net
