1. Designer: 
Ross Lovegrove for Artemide.

Product: Chlorophilia.

Standout: As LED light filters through thermopolymer leaves, dappled shadows are cast upward, like sunlight diffused through a forest’s tree canopy.

2. Designer: 
Oki Sato of Nendo for DePadova.

Full Moon Lamp by Carlo Nason of NasonMoretti.

Designer: Carlo Nason of NasonMoretti.

Lollipop pendants by Boris Klimek for Lasvit.

Designer: Boris Klimek for Lasvit.

Standout: While these pendants don’t take a licking, the biomorphic slumped-glass plates with sticklike LED sockets certainly recall a classic childhood treat. Through Property Furniture.

Acid lamp by Lee Broom of Lee Broom.

6. Designer: 
Lee Broom of Lee Broom.

Lolita lamp by Nika Zupanc for Moooi.

Designer: Nika Zupanc for Moooi.

Standout: Sitting pretty on a skinny polyurethane base, the lamp’s injection-molded ABS plastic shade recalls the stylish cloches flappers favored.

8. Designer: 
Isle Crawford for Kalmar Werkstaetten.

Product: Billy.

Standout: Brass supplies both structure and style, in the form of a V-shaped support, while a slender rosewood stem holds aloft the lined fabric shade. Through Stillfried Wien.
