For some reason when it comes to lighting my affinity is for that of the floor variety. I have already featured some other lighting forms, floor and otherwise which can be found in the archive’s following posts: “Lighten Up”, “Share the Wonder of Modern Design”, and “Brief History of Modern Design/Reputed Designers”. These standing art forms alongside a worthy seating or lounge counterpart provide ambient as well as task lighting. Needless to say there are many other brilliant selections but given the limited photo allowance for this particular platform, each post is limited to 5 photos. Other wonderful designs surely include those by Poul Henningsen, Jules Leleu, Vico Magistretti, Verner Panton, Jasper Morrison, Gino Sarfatti, O’Luce, Pallucco, and Serge Mouille to name a few which I will make a point to feature in later posts.
