After several seasons worth of clustered lanterns, at the Salon Maison & Objet, it was grouped light fixtures that kept showing up, demonstrating the strength in numbers when making a design statement... The light fixture above from Belgian company Materialise was just one of many. Like these from UK company Original BTC:
Transparent hanging balls from Bocci, below, floated like glass bubbles.
The colored lights from Bob Design below looked like a cluster of illuminated bottles.
And the sea creature-like lights from Italian company Melogranoblu below were anything but neutral.
