Sticky Lamp by Rotterdam based designer Chris Kabel of Droog Design is an ingenious way to instantly add illumination to any spot in your home. The piece works like a sticker. Simply peel off the protecting foil on the back and stick it wherever you need it. Any surface will do. The lamp can be placed on the ceiling, wall, door, on the floor, in the closet, or on the window — there are no borders for imagination. Available for purchase here.
Orto Volante suspension lamp, created by studio De-Signum for Italian brand Verde Profilo, is a interesting attempt to build an indoor garden without taking any counter space whatsoever. The piece incorporates ten white ceramic pots inside the powder coated steel lampshade (the hanging pots come with the special kit for upside down planting). I like the synergy between the elements – light helps the growing process and plants work as a defuser, helping to achieve more subtle illumination. A great idea for an urban kitchen.
