Amazing images... after looking at handmade paper and bamboo in searching for something to contribute to this beautiful thread, I came across this "lamp" house for a different spin on lighting.

Quote:
This building in Puerto Rico is called "hooch" by the owner.
The bamboo construction is put up on an existing concrete base with cesstank and is used like a bedroom. Sun collectors on the roof produce current for a ventilator and a small lamp.

i love lighting, it's my favourite part of interiors. i fired an architect after he tried to force me to put recessed lights into my flat and get rid of all the pendant lights we were never going to agree on anything!

i love this one by ingo maurer:

and yki nummi's skyflyer:

^Oh, yes, they're desk lamps. Having that picture out of context really doesn't show their size!

Designed in 1950 by a French machinist named Jean-Louis Domecq, the Jieldť lamp ó long considered a classic ó is getting an update. Last year, the company introduced a smaller, desk-friendly version of the multijointed metal lamp, which is still assembled by hand. And in September, all the Jieldť lamps ó both small and standard-size ó will be available in three new eye-popping colors: fluorescent pink, red and orange. (Jieldť lamps sell for $250 to $1,100; the Loft series fixtures shown at left are $902 each.) Those who canít wait until September can order now, by sending an e-mail to jielde@notonqueen.com. A list of retailers who will carry the lamps in the fall is at notonqueen.com. MILENA DAMJANOV
