Porcelain ware lighting gadgets

Honestly, I have never seen such beautiful hybrid home gadgets like Ana Wagner’s lighting devices made from porcelain ware. Presented for the open public in an exhibition called Photophore, on May 27th, at Bucharest, each porcelain lamp is delicately hand painted, and therefore has a special story.

Let’s pour some light!

You now this scenario, I’m sure: you have a hard day at work, then take the crowded train and finally get home. There, the last thing you want is to do housework, because you’ll end up spelling everything anyway. Guess what, these kinds of days are actually really inspiring for designers.

Shining ufo-s or futuristic lamps?

When it comes to lighting accessories what words would you choose for describing them? I'll say practical, ergonomic, low-energy consuming and totally fashionable. That's because I can't imagine a modern home without a fancy illuminating lamp that suits its style.

Whether you prefer a more extravagant style, or you chose being classical, online stores offer you a very large palette of lamps. Small, tall, futuristic, in shape of a fire ball, of an unidentified flying object (Eurolantern floor lamp by Moooi Works), squared or any other shape, lighting accessories are there to enrich one's house.Eurolantern floor lamp

Both the Volivik chandelier and the Volivik lamp are hand-made from recycled Bic pens by Madrid-based design studio En Pieza. They come also in orange Bic pens but the clear ones look more crystal-like refracting light in the most dazzling way.
