The lamps that I am sharing today are created by PER/USE, a new Belgian design brand launched in the Summer of 2013. They are based in Marke and offer a strong mix of furniture and accessories designed by Belgian and international designers. The functional collection, with a distinguished and timeless character, however not missing a contemporary twist, is inspired by known names as well as emerging design personalities. PER/USE works with a combination of new upcoming and established designers, Belgian and international, such as Lucie Koldova, Patrick Séha, José Cabrita, Frederik Delbart, etc.

MCE Lamp | Lights

Inspired by Escher’s optical illusions

This set of decorative atmospheric lights called MCE Lamp saw the light in Sweden out of the creative minds at Note Design Studio. They were inspired by the famous illustrations of Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher (Maurits Cornelis Escher). Something you see when you look at the wooden frame shown below.

The blown glass sits on top of wooden Oiled Oak or Walnut frame. It's a lamp for indoor use and available in 3 sizes and different colors. You can control the direction of the light by leaning or tilting the glass bowl for either direct light or an ambient glow. I wouldn't mind having this lamp in my living room. In fact it would be a very stylish addition. The gradients in the blown glass are also nice and subtle, something that isn't that easy to achieve I bet. If you are interested in buying this you can find out where you can buy their products here.
