Looking for whimsy and very modern lamps? Look no further! British designer Samuel Wilkinson has revealed the first two designs from new his lighting brand Beem, featuring curved, straight and spiraling lines.
Called Smile and Curli, the two designs both utilize the latest flexible-filament LED technology, which allows the bulbs to be shaped into playful forms. Each light is illuminated using the latest soft-filament LED technology, which can emit bright, warm light for up to 25,000 hours while using as little energy as possible. The lamps can be hung on their own or arranged in groups. An innovative rotating mechanism hidden inside means that the lights can be easily adjusted to line up with surrounding bulbs.
The Smile lamp boasts a simple, graphic design, comprised of a single glass bar of light fitted with a flexible filament and attached to a ceramic base. The light comes in three different shapes: a U shape, a smile-like upward curve and a straight line.
The Curli lamp is designed to look like a swirl of light. Inspired by the decorative twist – or curlicue – found in calligraphy, it takes the form of a continuous asymmetric coil that curls around the bulb holder.
