    Which designer outdoor lighting brands are in ‘high demand’?

    Designer brands dedicated to creating just outdoor lighting are rare.

    However, that hadn’t stopped brands like Masiero from becoming leaders in inspirational, elegant and modern lighting ideas for terraces, balconies and gardens.

    But, if you’re looking for real works of lighting art, look no further than the Karman lamp Cell by Matteo Ugolini or the Anglepoise lamp Original 1227 Giant designed by George Carwardine.

    They’re utterly breathtaking!

    Are there classic lamps for the garden?

    There are some outdoor lamps for the garden, most notably in the Flos and Foscarini range, which are considered modern classics.

    However, one of the most famous lamps in the world is also available as an outdoor floor lamp: the legendary Tolomeo desk lamp by Michele de Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina from the Artemide range.

    Pure class, we think you’ll agree!

    Are there any designer outdoor lights with LEDs?

    There sure are!

    Lights, such as the Flos lamp Ipnos by Nicoletta Rossi & Guido Bianchicis are a popular choice.

    But the best part of all?

    They’re all made possible by the flexibility LEDs provide.


    Because LEDs can be shaped into a range of quirky, modern or vintage designs, something that’s impossible with traditional light bulbs.
