Retro Euro Table Lamp by Luján + Sicilia

Twister Table Lamp

Add a little retro Euro Style to your home with the Twister Table Lamp by Luján + Sicilia. I ran into one of these for the first time last week and although it reminds me a little of the Bubble Lamps designed by George Nelson at first glance it actually has a cool texture and a much more sculptural look that sets it apart.

To start with, rather than the ribbed surface of the Bubble Lamp, the shade is formed with individual vanes like a turbine on a jet engine. this allows light to escape from the top and causes more variation with the glow of the lamp and the shadows caused by its curves. Another thing I liked about it is difficult to notice until you get up a bit closer to it. Unlike any other lamp I have seen in this style, The Twister Table Lamp has a cool, irregular deckled edge. This rough edge gives it a nice texture and add some interest to the shadows making it look a little less smooth and a little more organic.

Luján + Sicilia is one of a growing number of modern and contemporary lighting companies based in Spain. These Spanish lighting companies are creating some of the newest and most unique designs in contemporary lighting that I have seen since the 1980′s. Luján + Sicilia in particular is influenced mainly by the retro Scandinavian styles of the 60′s and 70′s and their designs have a charm, grace and texture all their own. Established in 2001, they will be a company to watch for years to come.

The Twister Table Lamp is available from OLighting and comes in two sizes starting at $515.00.
