Bendant lamp

bendant_silver.jpg

When I think of chandeliers, I immediately think of overly wrought glass lighting fixtures constructed with way too many lightbulbs and far too little taste. With the Bendant lamp, designer Jaime Salm's achieved quite the reverse: a single energy-saving 20W bulb, surrounded by leaf-like shades that you can style yourself.

It's not that I have a thing for bendable lamps, but the simplicity behind this design really grabs me. Not only does it redefine the chandelier as something chic and sleek that wouldn't look out of place in a contemporary home, it's also driven by eco-friendly principles. The lamp is designed to make the most of standard metal sheet goods, with minimal wastage when its pieces are cut out. It's made of recycled content which can be further recycled, and also ships flat.

Available for $165 from MIO.
