We're big fans of statement pieces. One gorgeous, outrageous, over-the-top chandelier can carry a room when it's hanging delicately over a minimal dining table. This pendant lamp from Northern Lighting has just the same effect...

Designed to emulate the bare-bones hanging light bulb, this pendant is more than a lamp; it's a statement, both visually and in theory. The "Scheisse" aims to comment on the decline of one of man's most important inventions, the incandescent light bulb, as we move towards newer energy solutions.

The story behind the design makes this piece a really special and unique conversation piece, but we think that the "exploding" bulb is also a great take on a traditional chandelier.
