Gallery: The Best Green Lighting from New York Design Week 2011!

 
Aqua Creation’s mesmerizing Gail Collection is a series of beautiful suspended mobiles made using hand-dyed and treated crushed silk. The delicate material is drawn over black metal frames and illuminated from within with an energy-efficient CFL bulb.

Designed by Aqua Creations, each 96 Molecules lamp is crafted by folding a single sheet of paper without any other manipulations. The process emphasizes craftsmanship and creates a unique product that is not mass-produced – it takes a single person a full day to fold two pieces!

Ismael Quintero’s gorgeous Odyssey lamps by iQEnvironments are made from reycycled beer bottles and modeled after NYC fire hydrants.

Pacific Northwest-based Perhacs Studio unveiled a striking series of flat pack cardboard pendant lamps at the Model Citizens exhibition. The modular lamps are assembled from laser-cut cardboard shapes that come in a variety of forms ranging from simple soft geometries to complex branch-like designs.
