The diffuse light is partly filtered through the epoxy lacquered metal frame whose shape reminds of stars. This decorative frame, in spite of being made of metal, seems delicate, airy and origami-like. It is available in glossy black, white, red or chartreuse green.

This is one of the most sci-fi and intricate lamps you can imagine, but no less can be expected of sacred monster Artemide.

Designed by Louise Campbell for lighting company Louis Poulsen, the Collage pendant lamp is feminine by definition. The light source itself is concealed and shines diffusely through 3 layers made from laser cut acrylic layers. The vine and strand shaped cutouts make up an elegant and highly decorative pattern and filter a diffuse glow through and also allow for indirect light on the ceiling. It is a beautiful and versatile lamp, whether pink and trendy in the hotlips version, funky in the juicy orange version, ethereal and minimal in snow white, fresh and vivid in lemon yellow or timelessly elegant in the smoke-tinted version.
You can also add to the traditional lure by choosing different bold hues for your living room walls. But when you do that, make sure the colors stand well with your taste and that of the visitors too.
