DL-G16-Stuff-Lights-Bocci73-2

1 CLOSE ENCOUNTERS
Hung in a cluster, Bocci’s 73 lamp is a striking space invasion. With a fluid, fabric-like form, each other-worldly pendant is made – in Vancouver’s Armoury Design District – by blowing scorching-hot liquid glass into a folded ceramic vessel. From $850, at Kiosk

2 FLYING SAUCER
Pablo’s Circa casts an ethereal glow. Tilt the flat-panel LED disc 45 degrees and it simulates a ship hurtling through the universe. Hung from an aluminum stem, the ABS plastic fixture is available in white or graphite finishes. $440, at LightForm

3 THE FORCE AWAKENS
Neil Poulton’s Scopas orb made of aluminum that’s been painted black is modelled after Darth Vader’s unfinished Death Star. Fix the irregular LED sphere above a grand dining table so that each guest can admire it from a different angle. $6640, at Artemide

DL-G16-Stuff-Lights-ResidentHex-1

4 GALAXY QUEST
Resident Studio’s powder-coated aluminum Hex is as simple and stately as a next-gen space station. A recessed poly prismatic diffuser softens the recessed LED strip, making this fixture a great choice for above a kitchen island. $1800, at Klaus

5 ASTROBIOLOGY
The mid-century mod-style Atom chandelier by Toronto’s Lightmaker Studio combines 18 soft white bulbs in a sophisticated molecular arrangement. Choose from two sizes and brass, copper or nickel finishes. $1775, at Lightmaker Studio
