The world of wall lamps has never been as diverse as it is today which is also down to the ground-breaking developments made in LED lighting technology and what designers are able to do with it now. Find out why this technology is so popular with designers, get to know different styles and discover the most classic of pieces!
When it comes to designer wall lights, there’s an infinite variety of styles possible, creativity ultimately knows no bounds.
Companies like Masiero even make links between styles – in this case, between classic and modern. “The classic a bit more modern, the modern a bit more classic,” says Enrico Maria Masiero in an interview with Lights.ie.
You could, for example, try to embody Italian design, which combines extravagance with classic elements and values artistic tradition. The way in which a designer brings this vision to life is different every time – sometimes in gold, sometimes in white, sometimes playful, sometimes modern.
Nordic designs are no less experimental, but are more down to earth and in touch with nature, utilising more wood and prioritising functionality. Anyone who thinks that this might restrain creativity has another thought coming!
Over the years, some designs have become timeless lighting “classics”. The Tolomeo by Artemide is a prime example of this – a light that’s been consistently in demand since the year it was created. Others go out of favour but come back into demand, as was the case with a number of Bauhaus lights such as the Wagenfeld table lamp.
Some classics come from Scandinavia, including from the world-famous brand Louis Poulsen, while others created an entirely new category of lights when they were first made, such as the first arc floor lamp Arco from FLOS in 1962. Today, designer brands like KARE create exciting lighting innovations that quickly turn into modern classics.
No matter your taste, you’ll find a creative world of designer wall lights to rediscover time and time again!
