Design Dilemma: Finding Stylish Energy Efficient Lamps
A few years back, it was no simple task to find a sleek and stylish lighting fixture that was also energy efficient. Thankfully, that’sÂ changed. Many countries are beginning to outlaw the use of incandescent bulbs, invitingÂ designers to shift prioritiesÂ and come up with beautiful yet energy-sipping fixtures. Energy-efficientÂ halogens now exists, as well as numerous options for really cool chandeliers, pendants, table lamps and floor lamps.Â Here are a few that caught our eye:
The Wagashi designed by Luca Nichetto and Massimo Gardone can be used with either anÂ incandescent or fluorescent bulb. It can also be mounted on the wall or ceiling. Manufactured by Foscarini. http://www.foscarini.com/it/
