This stunning light fixture is the vision of an English architect (Coombes) and an Italian designer (Giopato). Their inspiration was light, delicate soap bubbles. The design duo commissioned the famed master glassmakers of the Venetian island of Murano to produce the Bolle fixtures.

Danish designer Simon Legald debuted a striking range of pendant lamps called Amp for Normann Copenhagen at the Stockholm Furniture Fair. Amp has a contemporary vibe with a nod to the uber-cool design style of the moment: retro. The inspiration for the lamp’s shape came when the designer was restoring a 1960s radio.

Match, designed by Jordi Vilardell & Meritxell Vidal, is innovative not only in its design, but also in its configuration. Designers and clients can customize and order the lighting via online 3D software for a one-of-a-kind look.

Bocci, the Vancouver- and Berlin-based contemporary design and manufacturing company, introduced the 73 series at the Paris show. Each one-of-a-kind piece results from blowing liquid glass into a folded, heat-resistant ceramic fabric container. As the molten glass cools, it hardens into textural shapes. A flat LED light is strategically positioned to diffuse light throughout the glass.
