Gone are the days when lighting designs were boring and typically designed objects that did nothing but add light to a living space. A well-designed lighting fixture should not only have the ability to illuminate any living space but also add that extra oomph factor! I mean, of course, we need them to see in the dark, but as highly functional as they should be, a lighting fixture also needs to be aesthetically pleasing, adding an attractive and visually soothing element to your home or office space. From a ghost-like chandelier to sleek lighting designs that incorporate wireless charging trays– these unique lighting designs are what you need to elevate your living or working space!

1. Sunne Light

Dubbed the Sunne light, this unique self-powered solar light is called the Sunne light, and it harvests sunlight during the day to illuminate your home at night. It is an extraordinary sunlight-mimicking lamp that not only collects solar energy but also powers itself using that energy.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Sunne light has been equipped with photovoltaic cells and is meant to be hung in front of a window. The suspended lighting fixture collects solar energy through the entirety of the day, and at night it utilizes this energy to illuminate your home. It features an integrated battery that stores the solar energy it collects and hence eliminates any reliance on an external or additional power source.

What we like

  • It not only collects solar energy but uses that to power itself
  • The lamp remains suspended in the air, so doesn’t occupy any precious real estate in your home

What we dislike

  • Heavy price tag
  • Since the lamp is suspended, it could be difficult to clean and maintain

2. Soft Serve Lamp

Named the Soft Serve Lamp, this adorable-looking lamp resembles a swirly ice cream, and is 3D-printed to create a unique dessert-shaped form.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Soft Serve lamp is 3D-printed using a bioplastic that is made from recycled food packaging. 3D printing is utilized to create the unique swirling shape of the lamp. It is available in a range of cute sorbet colors.

What we like

  • Made to order, making the production process quick and sustainable

What we dislike

  • The lamp seems more aesthetic than functional

3. The Madco Table Lamp

Created by Italian designer Elisa Ossino for the Japanese brand Ambientec, the Madco Table Lamp is designed to be a subtle and minimalistic recreation of festive Japanese lanterns.

Why is it noteworthy?

The lamp is designed to be portable, and it can be recharged using a UBC-C. The designer says that you should take the lamp outside, as it is waterproof, and will create a pretty and intriguing interplay with plants. It can be hung from its handle as well!

What we like

  • Portable and flexible design
  • Adds a pop of color to your home

What we dislike

  • The design looks a bit fragile and easily breakable

4. Emotional Lab Light

Dubbed the Emotional Lab Light, this unique and ethereal-looking lighting design was created by interior designer Hania Jneid. Jneid was inspired by chemistry sets, and she drew influence from them to create her eclectic and elaborate floor lamp.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Emotional Lab floor lamp includes a tall and slender metal lamp that provides support to multiple beaker-like glass vessels that illuminate any space they’re placed into with a warm and inviting flow.

What we like

  • Influenced by the designer’s childhood memories of chemistry lab

What we dislike

  • Looks easily breakable and fragile, and not very moveable

Designed by 101 Copenhagen, the Ghost Chandelier is ghostly, ghoulish, and yet insanely graceful. There is something simply so alluring about the lighting design, that you can’t help but be mesmerized by it.

The Handmaid Table Lamp or Night Light perfectly captures the joy of crafting paper cones as a child and transforms it into a functional and good-looking household object.

  • Creates a warm and inviting atmosphere

What we dislike

Designed by UK-based Jones and Partners, the Current Task Light is yet another addition to the studio’s portfolio of simple, minimalist, and highly functional products.

Why is it noteworthy?

The award-winning task lighting + charging concept is a multifunctional product to aid in your daily multitasking and is perfectly complementary to both residential and commercial spaces.

8. Hexa Light

The Hexa Light is designed to be a ‘horizontal chandelier’ that can be attached to your ceiling like a 2D fixture rather than a 3D one. It illuminates a place very well, while also transforming your ceiling into a canvas for its unique patterns.

Why is it noteworthy?

The inspiration behind Hexa Light traces its roots to traditional Iranian architectural decorations. The design’s geometric pattern, reminiscent of “Girih” and “miniature” motifs, showcases intricate interlaced strapwork patterns.

Designed by Inga Hempe, the Matin Lamp is a contemporary and modern interpretation of a common lighting fixture that uses a steel wire frame to condense the form to its most basic.

Why is it noteworthy?

Its unique pleated lampshade gives a distinctive character to the product, creating a play of shapes and shadows that contrast with its plain block of color.

What we like

  • The lamp is a harmonious contrast of order and chaos with repeating patterns of flowers, petals, and leaves

What we dislike

  • The lamp may be too quirky and eclectic for some

10. Nebula Desk Lamp

The Nebula Desk Lamp was designed by COG Design Studio in partnership with the lighting brand Bonakia by building a basic yet defined form of lighting via repetition, transformation, and an innovative combination of distinctive geometric shapes.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Nebula Desk Lamp was designed by giving a subtle and formative beauty to flat shapes using three-dimensional changes in direction and bending. This creates a refreshed and interesting form for a lighting design, by simply playing around with various geometric figures, and imparting them with an emotional aesthetic.

What we like

  • The innovative design gives the impression of a nebula in space, which lends the design its name

What we dislike

  • There is no option to change/customize the design as needed
