ICFF 2008: Lighting Part 2

More lighting from ICFF - the top image is one of the beautiful lights from David Trubridge's new Spiral Islands collection.

Heading out of the fair, I almost missed Knoend's tiny clubhouse-esque space. These young designers from San Fransisco not only had a refreshingly quiet exhibit, they were also showcasing a great eco-lamp called 'lite 2 go'. The concept of lite 2 go is simple; the packaging becomes part of the lamp, leaving little waste. What is left is designed to be recycled or biodegradable, including the lamp itself which can can be recycled or sent back to Knoend, who will take care of the recycling for you.

And finally, another cool light from Molo. The honeycomb structure allows the lamp to morph into different shapes, encouraging play. Here the lamps are shaped like urchins, but they can also squish down flat or open up at the top like a flower. I love Molo.
