Stacked: Lighting Trend

Why use one material or color when you can use two or three? Layering up components of varying colors and contrasting materials to create one-of-a kind lamps is a trend that just keeps growing. Not only visually interesting, in some cases, the trend allows customers to partake in the design process by building their own design and therefore personalizing their purchases.


The six different modules that make up the ILI-ILI pendant lamps by Zagreb-based designers Grupa can be stacked together in different ways to create various different shaped pendant lamps.  The powder-coated aluminum modules are available in blue, green, yellow or grey,& in three shades of each colour.


The detailed designs painted onto these ceramic lamps by Swedish studio Glimpt are inspired by strawberry pips. Called Forbidden Fruit, the cord of the lamps are fitted with layers of colourful wooden discs.
