Five new table lamps that keep on shining — even after lights out
Swedish designer Jonas Wagell’s take on an oil lamp comes with a timeless polished brass base that will acquire a natural patina over time, plus a bronzed brass dimmer knob suited to the dawn of electricity. $315, at Gron+White.
For his FontanaArte debut, Sicilian architect Francesco Librizzi suspended a hand-blown white satin glass sphere within a thin metal frame that magically outlines its field of light. From $1790, at Lightform.
London superstar designer Lee Broom looked to the solar system when designing the Crescent Lamp, a celestial globe split on an angle to reveal a brass core. Choose from two sizes. From $1390, at The Modern Shop.
The polished brass armature on Karl Zahn’s Atlas lamp introduces unexpected geometry – and classical metaphor – to lighting titan Roll & Hill. The radiant globe is also fully dimmable. $1960, at Hollace Cluny.
Versatility is the essence of Neri & Hu’s nh1217: a softly glowing glass sphere that slides along a brushed brass ring, allowing the lamp to be carried, hung from the wall or laid flat on a tabletop. $430, at Artemide.
