Tati and Kigocoro Lamps: Strange Looking Trees

Lights can be easily used to enhance the look of any room. You don't need to spend a lot of money to make a living room look good. Just like a great tie, great lights make a world of difference. They can make a room look great. The two lamps that we present in this post are unique and for some reason, both of them remind us of trees. The Tati lamp can be used as a desk lamp or a coffee table lamp, whereas the Kigocoro lamp fits in nicely in the living room.

Tati
The Tati lamp is designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Kartell. This beautiful looking lamp looks like a stylized tree and will be presented at the Milan Design week. It comes in four different variations, which set different moods. The way that the lamp is designed reminds me of an icon. This lamp is made out of a fluorescent circlet which is inserted into this tree-like box. It's the first time that I see a lamp that uses these fluorescent lights in a nice looking way. Usually, the lamps using bulbs like this are kind of utilitarian. [via Designboom]

Kigocoro
The Kigocoro lamp is designed by Studio Ito for Yamigawa. Just like a tree, it has a bunch of different arms to illuminate a larger area than if it had just one. This makes it ideal lighting for people reading in a living room. The resulting lighting will be discreet enough, but the spots will be intense since they are made of LEDs. It's a great looking ceiling lamp which will work well in a number of differently designed homes.
