Undeniably sweet lighting by Niza Zupanc.
The suspended lamp is made of blown glass bulb that is hanging on a metal tubing. The lamp is available as single cherry, twin cherries or triplets.
The Cherries lamps will be shown as part of the exhibition Silent Revolutions: Contemporary Design in Slovenia, which will be presented for the first time during London Design Festival at Tent London September 22-25, 2011. Silent Revolutions brings together more than 25 selected works in the first extensive international presentation of Slovene product design of the last two decades. more info at www.mao.si.

I love me some creative lighting, and Rebecca Wilson delivers!
Light Spill is a series of lights in which a vintage porcelain jelly oozes out of the shade. Each oozy spill has different yummy fruit patterns, reinforcing the idea of a tantalizingly delectable treat. The lights are available in two sizes and you can get them directly from Rebecca’s website.

This photograph is amazing, and the story behind it even more so!
Shown here, images from Audrey Penven’s photography series “Dancing with Invisible Light: A series of interactions with Kinect’s infrared structured light.” From her description of the project:
With these images I was exploring the unique photographic possibilities presented by using a Microsoft Kinect as a light source. The Kinect - an inexpensive videogame peripheral - projects a pattern of infrared dots known as “structured light”. Invisible to the eye, this pattern can be captured using an infrared camera.
The Kinect uses the deformation of this dot pattern to derive 3D information about its subjects (an ability which has already spawned an explosion of incredible digital art).
As a photographer I am most interested in the nature and quality of light: how light behaves in the physical world, and how it interacts with and affects the subjects that it illuminates. For this shoot my models and I were essentially working blind, with the results visible only after each image was captured. Together, we explored the unique physicality of structured light, finding our way in the darkness by touch and intuition. Dancing with invisible light.
