Today 6/18/12 is a sad day as we lose a great lighting designer and architect, Jonathan Speirs. We at lightKulture.com offer our sincere condolences to all his family and friends during this difficult time.
Practice Statement from Speirs and Major
“It is with great regret and deep personal sadness that we must announce that Jonathan Speirs lost his fight against cancer on 18/06/2012. Since his terminal diagnosis in late 2010 Jon showed characteristic strength and a steely determination to defy the life limiting constraints put upon him. He continued to work with us and travel widely until the end of 2011 finding energy and solace from the great loves of his life, his family and his work. Our thoughts are with Liz, Lucie, Erin, his sister, brothers and father. We will miss him dearly but will keep him with us, working to his and our primary objective: delivering great projects.” – SpeirsandMajor.com

BANG! created by Bitplay is a creative desk lamp with a gun-shaped remote controller. The user can fire the “gun” to turn the light off. The light goes out and the lampshade knocks to the side, showing that it’s been hit. To turn it back on, simply shoot it again, and the lampshade will raise up slowly and turn the light back on at the same time.
“The art of lighting has a conceptual and technological heritage at the Miyake Design Studio, dating back to 2010, when Issey Miyake and Reality Lab introduced “132 5.” IN-EI Issey Miyake was born from a collaboration with Artemide marrying their lighting expertise with Reality Lab’s innovative approach to the material and design.”
““recall old forms and old shapes, like what René Lalique designed for the ship the Normandie in the 1930s,” Ms. Putman said. Prices range from $1,900 for a chrome lamp (minus the lampshade) to $130,500 for a large gilded chandelier (the medium size, in chrome, is $95,000).”
