This collection of ceiling and wall light fixtures that look just like balloons were designed by Boris Klimek for Brokis.
"Memory" lights are inspired by memories of childhood and are made of opal glass, come in eight different colors, as a ceiling mount or wall mount, and in three sizes.
The hanging cord is used for turning on and off lights. The range of colors create different interior atmospheres suitable for anything from a child's room to a formal dinner party.

BuoKids is a personal project of Roberto Celada and Raquel Esteve, members of “rqrstudio”, and children Angela, Carlos and Daniel who are their inspiration and who give the nod to their products.
Angelica is a modern chandelier designed by Nucleo, a design group based in Italy. The design concept - a chandelier in eighteenth century style revisited in modern key - was to eliminate any super-structures, thus making light the only protagonist.
Angelica outlines its presence in space by evoking the past with soft lines that subtly recall the style of the eighteenth century. The chandelier lights up with an intensely soft light, creating an effect that is poetically suggestive and sophisticated.
The bearing structure is created in aluminium with laser-cut plexiglass elements:
Available in white, aquamarine blue, orchid lilac, mint green.
Diffuser: fluorescent neon (white glass tubes charged with argon)
Light source: total 125W (cold cathode)
Size: 120 x 100 cm
Manufacturer: ALT Lucialternative
This beautiful and unusual lamp by J.P.Meulendijks is based on, and is a tribute to, the universal art of hand shadows and hand puppetry. Playing with light and hand shadows was and is a centuries old past time long before electric light was invented.
"BIRD IN HAND" plays with this concept: All of the hands are positioned to look like a flock of birds, flying out in circles. The shadows cast on the wall looks like birds. This results in a very expressive, dynamic and striking looking lamp, with layers of humor and poetry hidden in the design.

"The concept of the SHA-DO-lamps consists of illuminating the environment through individual shadow pantomimes. The creation of the light is as important to the lamp as the design is. The lamps can be adapted to their environment because of their flexible construction and casts every location in a very special light." -- Peter Buning
