Sculpting Light
gathers the finest of modern lamp design in one volume. Whether chandeliers, pendants, or table lamps, whether sculptural or minimalist in design, they are exclusive decorative elements during the day and conjure up a very special atmosphere in the dark. Iconic examples are represented in the book as well as examples of bold experiments with forms and materials. Three types of light sources are presented: Ambient, Spotlight and Outdoor. Legendary designers reveal their sources of inspiration and personal favourites, and well-known manufacturers are presented in portraits.
