The Random Light, by Bertjan Pot for Moooi, has a cocoon-like form is crafted of durable epoxy and fiberglass. The body is a unified piece; lightbulb access and replacement is carried out though an opening in the top. Uses 1 X 100W max medium base incandescent bulb.

Quite plainly, the sexiest task light you will ever see. The space between the single fold houses the halogen (or LED) bulbs, while the eponymous tab at the base of the shade enables a redirection of rays.
Hand-folded sculptural pendant shades were designed by architect Poul Christiansen between 1969 and 1978 and have been in continuous production by the Danish company Le Klint. The material is a color-stabilized white PVC.
Designed by Ross Lovegrove for Louis Poulsen, Aeros is an ethereal, floating object with an exquisitely perforated surface at once luminous and shielded. Aeros exudes a mystique reminiscent of Byzantine decoration, while maintaining a distinct ultramodern feel.
