Lighten up!


It is time to face the inevitable: summer is slowly slipping through our fingers. As days and nights are getting colder and darker, lots of interior brands seize this moment to launch new lighting designs. And if we browse to current collections, we see a lot of so-called ‘showstoppers’. Lighting features that draw your attention and not only provide light but serve a decorative purpose too. A ‘love-it or hate-it design’ is the brand new Flags collection by Metalarte. Flags of several big countries were transformed in to decorative lighting. Of course, that would look very nice in the Mister President office! Other interesting lamps are for instance the Hermès ‘Arche’ design and the wooden desk lamp by Seletti.
