6 shapely designer lights to brighten your day

S14-Stuff-rock-artemide
1 ECLIPSE OF THE HEART

Artemide casts new light on an old favourite. Originally released in 1967, this lacquered metal lamp is now available in a St. Valentine-­approved shade of red. A rotatable sphere acts as a manual dimmer. $285, at Artemide

DL-S15-lamps-iittala

MODERN MATCHMAKER
Iittala adopts two materials used in modern architecture – glass and concrete – to create a solid yet delicate form that mimics the bulbous shape of more traditional table lamps. Call for pricing, at Studio Pazo

DL-S15-lamps-mutatio

NOD ALONG
Finished in black-coated steel, Le Klint’s cylindrical Mutatio table lamp opens up to reveal a glossy white interior. Adjust the swooping, tiltable head to direct light at your angle of choice. $950, at Morba

DL-S15-lamps-foscarini

SIX-POINTED POLYGON
Foscarini and Diesel Living’s latest collaboration encases a light in two layers of perforated sheet metal, which cast a spectacular geometric pattern onto nearby walls. $1280, at Casa di Luce

DL-S15-lamps-parachilna

ALL ABOUT THAT BASE
Jaime Hayon updates the classic pot-bellied form with a toaster-inspired dimmer switch. Topped with a glass shade, the playfully patterned ceramic lamp sits on a lacquered wooden base. $2240, at Lightform

DL-S15-lamps-parasol

SHADY BUSINESS
The top of Innermost’s steel Parasol lamp tips like a sun umbrella, letting you bask in a Mediterranean beach-like glow even in the dead of a Toronto winter. Available  in red, white and black. $985, at RADform

Originally published in our Spring 2015 issue as Table Talk.
