Sculptural lighting is functional art that is both attention-grabbing and room-brightening—and it is increasingly being incorporated into commercial and residential spaces to add a finishing touch or focal point. Many designers see sculptural light as a time to play with opposing materials—like bamboo and brass or blown glass and rough cargo belts. This issue of AP ProductWire profiles a few sculptural luminaires that capture the variation in what artists are using to create these pieces. From delicate bone china to artificial flowers, the materials making the latest in sculptural lighting create full and distinct experiences that can bring a new life to an interior.
