See the Light


If you're in the market for new lighting solutions, you're likely going to want to know about the new Diesel with Foscarini lamps that Créma Design has recently added to its Cape Town showroom display. The lights go far beyond being merely functional and are instead strikingly sculptural, unusual and full of personality. They're a nod to the sort of edgy, unexpected designs that have come out of the collaboration between Foscarini and Diesel and they'd certainly make any home look a little rock star.

Here are four of our favourite lamps from the collection on display at Créma Design:

the crash and bell

These two sleek lamps are inspired by percussion instruments, with the one resembling a cymbal and the other resembling a bell. They come with bronze or aluminium finishes and can be bought independently or together depending on the look you want (though, we have to say, they look quite powerful as a set).

the drumbox

This clever lamp, which boasts a look inspired by the kinds of lights used at photographic sets, has to be one of the most versatile creations out there. It can be used as a floor lamp, table lamp or suspension lamp and you can even position a few of the linen and nylon shades on one metal rod.

the hexx

Made from varnished steel and silkscreen printed glass, this table lamp combines two perforated hexagonal prisms to create a feature light that is bold, sturdy and very unusual. It comes complete with two light sources, one that shines upward and one lower down that illuminates the surrounding surface and walls with an intricate patterned glow.

the metafisica

This eye-catching table lamp is lovely to look at even when it's switched off. It features a voluptuous form in ivory blown glass suspended from a steel rod cage, and when switched on, the light appears to float in mid-air, bringing a touch of magic to your living space.
