Lighting is important. We need adequate lighting in order to work and live properly. It's not always easy to find the right sort of lighting for the right purpose. There has also been a movement in lighting design to create center-pieces or feature lights. These are almost akin to sculptures and work well in living and home theater rooms, depending on how they are currently decorated.
Cassiopea Fiber Optic LED Light
This lighting fixture was designed by Chiara Lampugnani. It's part of her Atmosphere series of shaggy lighting over at the Maison et Objet in Paris. This lamp is made out of fiber-optics and LEDs, encrusted in a base made out of ceramics and plastics. It just looks great and would make a great chandelier. We like how LEDs and fiber-optics are used in this light, making it a technological piece of lighting. [via PicoCool]
Dahlia Sconce Light
Janne Kyttänen designed this sconce fixture named Dahlia. It's inspired by the mathematics of nature and the arrangement of flower petals. Needless to say that a few of these lights in your living room would look great as atmospheric lighting. They are diffuse and not too bright, making them perfect to have in your home theater room as well. This fixture is available at Freedom of Creation. [via Yanko Design]
