Good lighting design is the interrelation of light to an interior and the user. The subtle quality of light is the ultimate goal of all good lighting. Each one of the lamps in this auction offers a unique solution to this complex design problem. Through their articulations, these lamps often echo our movement as they crouch, reach or elegantly angle to provide the pleasing shimmer that we desire. Lighting offers a freedom for designers and this auction highlights the many novel solutions that keep us, the user, from darkness.
