A friend sent us a link to Here There Designs yesterday, and we were immediately taken. While the color or lack thereof isn't normally our style, there is something so rich about these organic surfaces and the light cast seems intensely warm. We are so impressed were just running a lot of pics and letting you decide.
There are four basic designs: Michelin, Dollop, Stay Puff and Drop. Shades are cast in super thin abaca fiber around forms with a "special technique." The rods are stainless steel and the bases are concrete.
According to Here There, the lamps are also "100% non-toxic, 100% recyclable, 100% sustainable, and 100% archival." They are available through their website. (Thanks, Kate!)
