Our three favourite lights

There has been a crop of new lighting launches this autumn and in the October issue of Studio magazine we round up our favourites.

But, as a brief taster of what is currently available, here are the three designs that particularly caught our attention. From the simple ceramic shades at Hand & Eye Studio, to the seven layers of glass in Septima from Louis Poulsen and Japanese influenced design from Stellar Works.

Designed and produced in collaboration with ceramicist Linda Bloomfield, the handmade Morandi pendants from Hand & Eye Studio are inspired in shape and colour by the bottles depicted in paintings by artist Giogio Morandi. Made from wheel thrown porcelain they are glazed in two-tone with a tactile matt-satin glaze. Available in two shapes. 

This Autumn, Louis Poulsen is bringing back the PH Septima, a distinctive glass lamp originally designed by Poul Henningsen. The seven shades have alternating clear and frosted sections to diffuse a pleasantly delicate light while maintaining downward directed, glare-free distribution. Septima was originally launched at the Danish Museum of Decorative Art in 1928. 

Stellar Works has unveiled its first substantial lighting collection. Included in the collection is the Haro light by long-term collaborators Space Copenhagen. Named after the Japanese word for halo, this delicate design comprises a refined floating opal glass shade poised on slender matt powder-coated metal base. Available as wall, standard and table lamp.
