^^ i know i would love to have something like that

must be super expensive though..

you probably have to special order with the size you want and stuff like that..
seems like a made to order sort of thing..

so beautiful though...

we have this high-ceilinged family room at my house with a pitched roof (i think thats what it's called.. ceiling shaped like this "/\" if that makes sense...)
currently there is a ceiling fan at the point (which we never use) and having a few of these branches of different lengths and "growing" in diverging in different directions could look so amazing..
especially because the room is already very warm and sort of earthy feeling
bamboo shades, a great golden brown color on the walls, some kind of palm tree in the corner and more plants...

i'll just pretend something like this is in there next time i look at the "offending" ceiling fan :p

what a weird material

you write it's your photos
do you mean you took them at a gallery?
i can't find Gaetano's lamp in his website portfolio... do you happen to remember what it's made of?
i'm working on a design collection... and the guy has this in his collection...
and a lot more from Gaetano Pesce...
i think this is plastic...or latex...
i'll make more photos when the installation will be done (in about two weeks...)

The David Wiseman lighting is beautiful, but everyone needs to go to his site and look at his ceiling decorations! Extraordinary!

i saw your post now --thanks :p
looking forward to your posts !!!

what are you going to be doing in this ?
do you help arrange things
i think they also have to create labels for work: the materials, the date made, etc.

Quote:
Ali was born and raised in Iran where there is lots of sunshine. He found in Britain they don't have much in the way of natural light for a large part of the year so he figured why not turn this negative into something positive. Rather than being depressed about the gloom Ali decided to try to design lights that would be a genuine source of amusement and fun and perhaps a replacement for his missing sun.
Ali moved to Britain in 1988 and while studying for a degree in Graphic Design at St Martin's he became frustrated by the limitations of 2D design, so he went on to study for a MA in Industrial Design.
Ali's use of repetition and found objects combined with his sense of humour has produced a unique sense of design.

more branches

Nick Foley's Pear Light

"Custom made from hand-forged steel, this tree of light comes bearing fruit with rechargeable LEDs that allows you to take the lights with you down dark hallways. Once ďpickedĒ from the tree, each pear stays illuminated for about an hour. To bring it back to life, just place it back on the tree, where it will recharge for your night-viewing pleasure."
