Design Within Reach IC T1 Low Table Lamp
Design Within Reach IC T1 Low Table Lamp

After being schooled in industrial design and engineering at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College in London, Michael Anastassiades founded his own studio in 1994. His work falls somewhere in between the industrial and sculptural, especially his lighting, which consists of reflective materials such as polished bronze and mirrored glass in simple geometric shapes. Anastassiades pieces can be found in hotels, restaurants and shops worldwide, including the SoHo House New York, the Grand Hôtel Stockholm and Sergio Rossi boutiques. The IC Lamp (2013) possesses the poetic grace and balance that characterize all of his pieces, consisting of a blown glass diffuser mounted on an ultra-thin yet stable frame. Positioned in a seemingly precarious manner, as if its ready to drop any moment, the perched sphere lends captivating tension to the design. Bulb (included): 60W/G9 frosted halogen. Made in Italy. Materials: Brass frame with clear finish or steel frame with chrome finish; frosted blown glass diffuser. Measurements:H 15" W 7" D 8"

Design Within Reach GM 30 Pendant
Design Within Reach GM 30 Pendant

For the first decade of her lengthy career, Danish architect and designer Grethe Meyer studied living habits and building practices. She contributed to Byggebogen , or The Building Book, which later became the foundation for teachings at the Royal Danish Academy of Architecture, and was employed by the Danish Government to provide her expertise to the Institute for Home Building Research. She founded her own practice in 1960, and her simple and smart approach to everyday objects brought commissions from Georg Jensen, Royal Copenhagen and many other clients. In 2014, the company Menu worked with the Grethe Meyer Design Foundation to produce her GM Pendant (1984), working from her original sketch. Simple by design, GM is quietly alluring. Design must be uncomplicated, and the product easy and comfortable to use, reasoned Meyer, and as simple and anonymous as possible in the expression of its properties. It is in this way that I think that beauty will present itself. Bulb (not included): LED, CFL or incandescent; 60W/E26. UL Listed. Made in Denmark. Materials: Stainless steel with painted finish or solid copper with clear lacquer finish. Measurements:H 8.5" Diameter 12", 4.6 lbs.

Design Within Reach NelsonTM Cigar Lamp with Stand
Design Within Reach NelsonTM Cigar Lamp with Stand

Architect George Nelson, who was Herman Millers design director from 1945 to 1972, once said, Every truly original idea seems to find its most important expression in a chair. And then he blew the doors off lighting design. While outfitting his office, Nelson discovered a silk-covered Swedish hanging lamp that he coveted but found too expensive. He then recalled seeing a photo in the paper of Liberty ships being mothballed by having the decks covered with netting and then being sprayed with a self-webbing plastic, which got him thinking. And then, Whammo! Inspiration struck, and by the next night, Nelson had designed his first Bubble Lamp® (1952) by spinning a skeleton of steel wires on a turntable and shooting it with translucent plastic until it was covered in a smooth, washable film. When you put a light in it, it glowed. This is the authentic Bubble Lamp, produced in partnership with the George Nelson Foundation. Bulb (not included): LED, CFL or incandescent; E26 base; 150W max. UL Listed. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Plastic polymer; steel frame and stand.

Design Within Reach Titan 3 Pendant Lamp with Diffuser
Design Within Reach Titan 3 Pendant Lamp with Diffuser

When designer Peter Bowles discovered a mold for an industrial-style light, he was inspired to recreate it in a way that would work in a variety of settings. Although the designer of the original (circa 1940) is unknown, Bowles was determined to stay true to its shape and quality while also updating it to be more eco-friendly. Referring to his lights as beautifully unprocessed, all of Bowles aluminum shades and bases are spun by hand from sheet metal in the heart of the U.K.s metalworking industry and sent to Oxford for assembly. His company is committed to green practices and to reducing petrochemical use as much as possible. The Titan Pendant (1995) provides mostly downward-focused lighting, with a wired glass diffuser that lets you enjoy the energy savings of fluorescent bulbs without sacrificing soft, warm ambient lighting. This fixture suits both residential and commercial spaces. Bulb (not included): incandescent 100W/A21/E26 or comparable CFL/LED. UL Listed. Made in the U.K. Materials: Aluminum housing; spun aluminum ceiling rose; wired glass diffuser; cloth-covered cord. Measurements:H 16.75" Diameter 18" Cord L 59", 3.5 lbs.

Design Within Reach Oval Bulkhead Light
Design Within Reach Oval Bulkhead Light

DWR Exclusive Originally known as Davey & Co., the company was established in 1885 and has roots dating back to the shipyards of 19th-century London. Its clients back then were the marine merchants operating out of London's West India Docks, whose ships were outfitted with Davey lighting. These iconic lights graced the decks of many of history's best-known vessels, including, it is said, the Titanic and HMS Ark Royal. As demand for navigation aids declined over the years, the interest in Davey's industrial modern aesthetic increased among architects and designers, and the company continued to thrive. However, the challenges facing British manufacturing brought the threat of closure and an overseas move, until Peter Bowles stepped in. He purchased the company, which is now based in Oxford, England, and is proud to have a team that includes Tim James, whose grandfather joined Davey & Co in 1897. As part of Original BTC, which Peter Bowles founded, Davey Lighting now supplies marine, industrial and decorative lighting to residential and contract customers – making Davey available to the public (instead of only to the trade) for the first time. All components are handcrafted by small specialist U.K. suppliers according to centuries-old traditions. Bulbs (not included), small: 40W/GLS/E26; medium: 75W/GLS/E26; large: 100W/GLS/E26.

Design Within Reach Drop 1 Pendant, Grouping of 6
Design Within Reach Drop 1 Pendant, Grouping of 6

Saving a factory and helping the employees keep their jobs was not something Peter Bowles thought hed be doing when he designed his first bone china light. The story begins in Stoke-on-Trent, the heart of the British ceramics industry, where its prized porcelain has been produced for more than three centuries. Bowles convinced a tableware factory to produce his first design, but as the orders started to come in, he learned the factory would be closing. Rather than moving production overseas, Bowles bought the factory and offered the entire staff new jobs with his company, Original BTC. The Drop 1 Pendant (2000) is beautifully crafted of hand-cast bone china. Creating these lights involves a highly skilled, labor-intensive process that begins with raw clay and ends with biscuit firing, glazing, glossing and firing again. When lit, the shade has a translucent glow that allows for warm diffused light. Attention to detail is at the heart of every Drop 1 Pendant, right down to the braided cord, which was designed by Peter and can be found on every light his company makes. Drop is UL Listed and suitable for contract use. Bulbs (not included): 40W/120V/E26. Made in England. Materials: Natural bone china shade and ceiling rose; braided cotton covered cord. Measurements:6 Pendants: H 9.5" W 6" D 6" Cord L 59" each, 13 lbs. total

Design Within Reach Ktribe T2 Table Lamp
Design Within Reach Ktribe T2 Table Lamp

Philippe Starck jump-started his career by designing two nightclub interiors in Paris in the 1970s. The success of the clubs won the attention of President Francois Mitterand, who asked Starck to refurbish one of the private apartments in the Elysee Palace. Two years later, Starck designed the interior of the Café Costes, Paris, and was on his way to becoming a design celebrity. In quick succession, he created elegant interiors for the Royalton and Paramount hotels in New York, the Delano in Miami and the Mondrian in Los Angeles. He also began to produce chairs, lamps, motorbikes and boats. Starck's approach to design is subversive, intelligent and always interesting. His objects surprise and delight even as they transgress boundaries and subvert expectations. For his Ktribe Collection (2007), Starck used a special polycarbonate, and when the lamp is lit, the shade reveals a diffuser hidden inside. When the lamp is off, the internal diffuser is invisible. This is a dimmable lamp, with a dimmer switch on the cord. Bulb: 150W/120V/E27. UL Listed. Made in Italy by Flos. Unique shade creates an x-ray effect when lit. Materials: Polycarbonate; aluminum; PMMA (Polymethylmethacrylate); Zamak. Measurements:H 27.25" Diameter 15.5" Cord L 63"

Design Within Reach Model 2097 30 Chandelier

Gino Sarfatti was an industrialist and designer, and the combination shows in his Model 2097 30 (1958). In his 30-year career, Sarfatti produced more than 400 lamps and was known for tireless research into new materials, production methods and sources of light. A steel suspension light providing indirect light, Model 2097 uses 30 bulbs arranged around a steel tube and held in place by chromium-plated horizontal arms. In contrast to the strong horizontal and vertical lines, the electrical wires gently curve from each lamp to the stem and give this modern icon a hint of traditional chandelier shape. The Venice-born designer held a degree in aeronaval engineering and was instrumental in advancing the modern architectural movement in lighting through his work for Arteluce, which he founded, and Flos. Bulbs (included): 30 incandescent 15W/120V/E14. Materials: Steel structure, ceiling fitting and rose; chromium-plated brass arms; suspension cable. Measurements:H 28" Diameter 35", 11 lbs.

Design Within Reach Stamen Pendant
Design Within Reach Stamen Pendant

The subtly sexy Stamen Pendant (2004) is the work of Jeremy Pyles for Niche Modern, a company that came into being somewhat by accident. When opening a homewares store in SoHo, Jeremy Pyles and Mary Welch were unable to find lights that satisfied their super picky sensibilities. Then Jeremy saw a man selling blown glass vases out of the back of his truck. The glass designer wasnt sure he could create the shape Jeremy was looking for – telling him that glass is not meant to curve in on itself – but the two of them kept at it, eventually creating three pendants to light the front of the Niche store. The lights werent for sale, but customers kept asking for them, and a new business was born. Stamen consists of hand-blown colored glass, designed around the shape of a light bulb that Jeremy selected after studying more than 30 types. The result is a play of light and dark, strength and delicateness, simple lines and lush colors, with no two identical – like snowflakes. Bulb (included): tubular dimmable incandescent 120V/75W. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Hand-blown glass. Measurements:H 12" Diameter 12" Cord L 4', 5 lbs.
