Take, for example, the Afloat lamp, with its multicolor construction and playful presence. Inspired by balloon art, it perfectly retains the airy and amusing character of balloon toys, while adding the weight and pose of porcelain to the mix. Informal and almost empathically different, this light fixture may be just what you need to make your casual dessert shop, for instance, a visually entertaining place. Its combination of pastel and strong colors can also serve as a starting point in defining a color palette for your space.

The Cirkus chandelier uses U-shaped tubular modules to create a similar visual effect. Its robust construction demands attention and can help you add a substantial amount of color to your ceilings. The modules can be moved at the tip of the arm for directional light, giving you the opportunity to play with how the light falls on the other elements of your interior.

The Grand Finale Suspension lamp retains the curves without the bulk. Its graceful elongated arms that arch towards illuminated globes of different sizes seem the very definition of elegance. The arms of the light fixtures seem drawn with a sharp pencil, as if following the trajectory of an explosion of light. Depending on the frame color, the lamp can create the illusion of floating globes of light, which is a perfect way to build an intimate and almost mysterious ambiance.
