                                To many people, being energy efficient is a priority these days. We all know we can do our part in reducing our personal carbon footprint by doing simple acts like turning off the lights when not in use or decreasing our usage of heaters and coolers. What if we can take it further though, by incorporating a lifestyle change that dates back to the 1800s? Inspired by the efficiency of lanterns, industrial designer <a href="http://ghiaci.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Zahra Ghiasi</a> designed the concept of the Loight rechargeable light that challenges us to evaluate our dependency on light.
In theory, the Loight light is a personal light that you carry with you everywhere in the home. Each family member would have their own Loight and it’s only when the entire family is together that the room is the brightest. The light intensity can be adjusted depending on different situations and can be charged wirelessly with its

And now, it&#8217;s making its way back to the forefront in the design world, which has us exploring some fun ways to bring it back into our homes. Take a look at some gold accessories that will help you take a dip back into the gold pond.

Designer Hugo Tejada was inspired by the lanterns that used to be found in old railway stations and decided to reimagine them for modern times.
TAKE A WAY was given a youthful look to keep it fresh in hopes of it becoming an iconic design. The portable lamp can be used anywhere extra light is needed, free from the constraints of wires thanks to a long-life lithium battery. The lamp is made out of aluminum for its durability and lightness, which can be appreciated when you’re carrying it around. It’s outfitted with adjustable LED technology allowing you to control the brightness as needed. The white aluminum exterior is topped off with either a gold or wood carrying handle for added functionality.

HELIA Concrete Mesh Light Fixtures by Dror Kaspi for ARDOMA Design

                                Products made from concrete can sometimes end up looking clunky and unrefined as it&#8217;s often difficult to get the material to work on a more delicate design. Dror Kaspi, the designer behind <a href="https://www.ardomadesign.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">ARDOMA Design</a>, has a history of pushing the boundaries when it comes to what concrete can do and his latest is no exception. <a href="https://www.ardomadesign.com/copy-of-boulders"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">HELIA</a> is a pendant and table light with a unique, mesh-like structure that mimics woven concrete, which was inspired by the mesmerizing sunflower seed pattern of Fibonacci spirals.

Inspiration

The bi-directional spirals of the seed pattern became a challenge to figure out how to make concrete replicate its delicate nature. They developed a special concrete mixture along with new method of casting to achieve the finished results which allow light to escape through its small perforations. At first glance it’s hard to images the pendants are concrete, right? HELIA comes in light grey, dark

MyLiFi Lamp Beams the Internet to Devices By Light

But there&#8217;s a bit more behind this task light designed by Pierre Garner of eliumstudio for Oledcomm: it&#8217;s also capable of transmitting an Internet connection solely using light.
Light Fidelity, also known as Li-Fi, is an innovative wireless technology invented in 2005 by Oledcomm founder, Suat Topsu. Theoretically, it promises connections speeds of up to 13 MB/s download and 10 MB/s upload using light emitting diodes (LED) in lieu of standard wi-fi routers. Li-Fi operates by modulating light emitted by an LED light at an imperceptibly fast rate; these light signals are received by a dongle and translated into into the data that eventually draws up what we see and hear on our screen while browsing the internet. By nature of the technology, the Li-Fi equipped lamp also eliminates electromagnetic emissions. And because a signal requires a line of sight of the

ARC Lighting Collection Inspired by the Interior of a Copenhagen Church

                                In 2016, Danish design duo Nanna Neergaard and Marie Hesseldahl partnered up to form <a href="http://www.manerstudio.dk/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Manér Studio</a> before they even graduated from Design School Kolding. For their Master&#8217;s project, the pair collaborated on a collection of lighting for Danish company, <a href="https://www.leklint.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">LE KLINT</a>, which was just released to celebrate their 75th anniversary. Referencing the brand&#8217;s traditional pleating techniques, they designed the <a href="https://www.leklint.com/en-GB/News/We-unfold-75-years-of-lighting.aspx?Action=1&amp;PID=820"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">ARC Collection</a> after finding inspiration within Grundtvig&#8217;s Church in Copenhagen, whose regal architecture is full of curves and arches.
Even though the inspiration came from traditional architecture dating back almost a century, the designers reinterpreted its features for modern lighting fixtures, while paying homage to the company’s past. The ARC Collection includes a pendant lamp, table lamp, wall lamp, and floor lamp, each with white shades and black stained oak components.

Faves from IDS Toronto 2018

                                We returned to Toronto again this year to check out the <a href="http://toronto.interiordesignshow.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Interior Design Show</a>, i.e. IDS 2018, where we scoped out some new designs. Part of the show was the <a href="http://toronto.interiordesignshow.com/exhibit/maker/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Maker</a> section, now in its fourth year, which Design Milk curates to show a variety of handcrafted North American designers that focus on smaller batches with limited distribution. Check out those exhibitors&#8217; designs below, along with a few of our other favorites from the overall show.

Trapeze Pendant by Jette Scheib for Oblure

Trapeze was her favorite act to watch as they swung their bodies around interacting with other performers as well as the audience. The flexible pendant has the same idea allowing you to move the components around for endless lighting possibilities. If a single Trapeze isn&#8217;t enough, they&#8217;ve designed a system that allows you to connect multiple pendents for a larger fixture.
The half domed fixture allows each side to rotate 360 degrees around giving the option of only uplight, only downlight, half up and half down, and everything in between. Not only does it change how the light is cast, it changes the look of the fixture.

The concept behind the construction of the grid is based on brainstorming ways to create multipurpose &#8220;form meets function&#8221; types of designs.
As the Matrix grid is being constructed, the material can be shaped to form curves or flat surfaces that can come together to become any number of products or even architectural interiors. The nature of the open waffle design allows transparency when viewed straight on, but as you move to either side, a gradient of light begins to show as the openings shrink.

That means no electrician is required &#8211; simply plug it right into an outlet.
The simple design merges a single, powder coated aluminum rod with a handblown opal glass globe, secured to the wall with a wooden brace. By plugging into the outlet and resting close to the wall, the lamp takes up no floor space or table surface making it a great option for smaller homes. The LYNEA Plug Lamp comes in black and white and is available in two heights – 28″ and 40″.

One of their latest fixtures, the <a href="http://www.louispoulsen.com/usa/products/indoor/pendants/above/c-24/c-1422/p-91571"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Above</a> pendant, is well on its way to icon status with its minimalist conical silhouette. Designed by Danish designer <a href="https://odgard.dk/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Mads Odgård</a>, the fixture illuminates downward with a soft, even glow thanks to its matte white interior.

A Collection Inspired by Traditional Palm Architecture from Aljoud Lootah

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/a-collection-inspired-by-traditional-palm-architecture-from-aljoud-lootah/alareesh-aljoud-lootah-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/01/AlAreesh-Aljoud-Lootah-1-810x721.jpg" alt="A Collection Inspired by Traditional Palm Architecture from Aljoud Lootah" /></a>
                                Dubai-based artist <a href="http://aljoudlootah.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Aljoud Lootah</a> designed a striking collection of furniture and lighting that&#8217;s electroplated in copper and rose gold. The AlAreesh series were inspired by &#8220;areesh&#8221; structures, typically found in the United Arab Emirates as summer houses with gapped walls that create ventilation. The structures are made from dried palm fronds linked by rope as a way to offer relief from the sun and wind. Much like these traditional structures, the pieces in the collection incorporate vertical lines that have a way of playing with the surrounding light as it passes through the openings and bounces off the surfaces.
The AlAreesh collection includes a screen, stool, coffee table, and a table lamp.

Pierre + Charlotte Launch Bucket Lighting Series Made of Tasmanian Woods

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/pierre-charlotte-launch-bucket-lighting-series-made-of-tasmanian-woods/pierre-charlotte-bucket-light-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/01/Pierre-Charlotte-Bucket-light-1-810x668.jpg" alt="Pierre + Charlotte Launch Bucket Lighting Series Made of Tasmanian Woods" /></a>
                                Design duo <a href="https://pierreandcharlotte.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Pierre + Charlotte&#8217;s</a> paths have led them from Paris to Melbourne before recently settling into Tasmania, which has driven a new approach to their design. After the move, they decided to reimagine their brand to focus on wooden lighting and accessories, most of which are made in-house. Just recently, they launched the Bucket lighting series which includes a <a href="https://pierreandcharlotte.com/shop/lighting/bucket-wall-light/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">wall light</a>, <a href="https://pierreandcharlotte.com/shop/lighting/bucket-pendant/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">pendant light</a>, and <a href="https://pierreandcharlotte.com/shop/lighting/bucket-table-lamp/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">table lamp</a>, all made from Tasmanian woods.
With a focus on environmentally friendly production, the studio uses small amounts of steel (for hardware) and fabric, with the remaining 95% of materials being locally sourced wood. The Bucket lights feature molded plywood shades that rest on dowel-like components, all made of Tasmanian Celery Top Pin, Huon Pine, or American Walnut. The Bucket series will be exhibited at Gallery S.Bensimon in Paris until January 12th, 2018.
