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. The Sunne Light

This extraordinary self-powered solar light is called the Sunne light, and it harvests sunlight during the day to light up your home at night. The unique sunlight-mimicking lamp collects solar energy and powers itself using the same 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

  • Collects solar energy and powers itself using the same energy
  • The lamp remains suspended in the air, so doesn’t occupy space

What we dislike

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

2. The Ghost Chandelier

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.

Why is it noteworthy?

Created by Kristian Sofus Hansen and Tommy Hyldahl of NORR11 for the Danish design studio, the artistic lighting design intends to cast a myriad range of shapes and patterns in your home. The stunning piece is inspired by minimalist art.

What we like

  • Looks different from different angles and viewpoints
  • Creates a seductive and moody ambiance

What we dislike

  • Looks difficult to clean and maintain

3. The Current Task Light

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.

What we like

  • Allows coworkers to plug their devices across a large desk while working together

What we dislike

  • It’s a concept right now, so we don’t know how the final product will turn out

4. Ichi Portable Table Lamp

The minimalist Ichi portable table lamp is a mushroom-inspired marvel that can transform your surroundings with its soft and warm glow. It can grace any space with a touch of elegance.

Why is it noteworthy?

Running on simple AA batteries, its modular design promises not just convenience but also atmospheric enhancement wherever you decide to place it. Equipped with six high-color rendering LEDs, it bathes your space in a soothing luminescence, effortlessly turning any spot into a sanctuary of calm.

What we like

  • 4 brightness level
  • Easy to disassemble and store in a bag

What we dislike

  • Uses four AA batteries
  • Is not water-resistant

5. The 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.

What we like

  • A unique and mesmerizing blend of cultural iconography and modern technology

What we dislike

  • Space-consuming design not intended for smaller homes

6. Noctiluca Light

The Noctiluca Light is a brilliant arrangement of textured glass discs in the shape of a circle. Created by Australian brand Ross Gardam, the statement suspended lamp is made up of “an endless undulating spiral” of 32 of the brand’s own Ceto lights.

Why is it noteworthy?

Each element of the lighting fixture has a translucent and other-worldly appeal to it which in turn creates an ethereal mass effect that puts you under a spell! Each Noctiluca light is hand-assembled in Ross Gardam’s Melbourne studio.

What we like

  • Translucent and other-worldly appeal
  • Hand-assembled, giving the fixture a defined and concise appearance

What we dislike

  • It is a delicate piece, so proper care and precaution must be taken while cleaning it

7. The Matin Lamp

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

8. 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

9. Echo Desk Lamp

Designed by Simon Busse for the German brand Caussa, the Echo desk lamp draws inspiration from the shape of a tuning fork, and features a rounded LED light source that rotates at 360-degree angles to produce a whole range of lighting options.

Why is it noteworthy?

The head of the lamp can be adjusted along a two-pronged stand, allowing you to change the height of the lamp. The two-pronged stand of the lamp is quite interestingly shaped like a tuning fork.

What we like

  • Equipped with a hidden gesture control to allow users to turn the lamp on and off and dim the light using a simple hand movement

What we dislike

  • Will occupy a substantial amount of space on your desk

10. The Carousel Series

Created by Pablo Designs, the Carousel series is the perfect culmination of ambiance, aesthetics, and utility. It includes two designs – a table lamp, and a floor lamp.

Why is it noteworthy?

Both lamps incorporate wireless charging mobile trays in their form while emitting a warm, glare-free light. The charging tray is equipped with two wireless charging zones, and a USB-C charging port, to support a variety of devices.

What we like

  • The base of the lamp is a transparent fluted acrylic cylinder diffuser that emits indirect lighting via a hidden flat panel LED control with full dimming capabilities

What we dislike

  • Since the wireless charging trays are exposed they could be easily damaged or scratched
