Legend has it that Emeco founder Wilton Dinges tested the strength of a 1006 Navy Chair (1944) by tossing it out a sixth-story window. The people on the sidewalk below were a bit surprised, but the chair was fine, with the exception of a few scratches. Today, Emeco still uses the same 77-step process that Dinges perfected seven decades ago to satisfy the militarys need for lightweight, corrosion-resistant chairs for destroyers and submarines. The companys proprietary metal processing method yields aluminum three times stronger than steel – and a chair so durable that it has an estimated life span of 150 years. Emecos all-aluminum chairs and stools come with a lifetime guarantee, and generations from now, when your great-great-grandchildren finally manage to wear out a chair thats tested to withstand 1,700 pounds of weight (big kids), the aluminum can be fully recycled and made into something else. Stainless steel foot caps are covered with clear plastic glides to prevent floor scratches and carpet snags. Stool with brushed finish is suitable for outdoor use. This is the authentic 1006 Navy Stool by Emeco. Made in U.S.A. The Navy Chair design constitutes the proprietary Trade Dress of Emeco, making it illegal for another company to clone this stool. Made from 80% recycled aluminum (40% post-consumer, 40% post-industrial), which requires only 5% of the energy needed to produce virgin aluminum. In continuous production since 1944. Materials: Aluminum with polished or anodized brushed finish; stainless steel foot caps with clear plastic glides. Measurements:H 43" W 18" D 21.25" Seat H 30"
Handcrafted in New Zealand, the Geometric Hex LED Pendant (2013) is the brainchild of Scott Bridgens and Simon James, who founded their company Resident on a desire to give customers an authentic blend of craft and innovation. Their Auckland-based design and manufacturing business produces a refined and carefully planned assortment of furniture and lighting. To create Hex, the designers paired cutting-edge LED technology with a slim yet substantial aluminum frame that appears to hover in air, spending months testing lights until they found the perfect warm hue. The beautiful quality of light will have a deep intrinsic effect on the viewer, explains Bridgens. For some it will be very subtle and for others it will be profound, but this is something that will affect people. A recessed diffuser furthers the pleasing qualities of the light. The frame hangs from three thin wires, two of which supply electricity. Hex received top honors in the 2013 Furniture and Lighting Design Awards by New Zealands Home magazine. Bulbs (included): LED strips. UL Listed. Made in New Zealand. Materials: Anodized aluminum frame with powder-coated finish; LED strips; acrylic diffuser. Measurements:H 2.5" W 21.75" D 21.75", 1.25 lbs.
DWR Exclusive The Tripod Floor Lamp (2008), with its satisfying proportions and refined details, has all the potential of a classic. Its cord is coyly hidden down one leg, for an uninterrupted line. Three thin legs, each with a rubber glide at its base, support a perfectly balanced fabric shade. The shade is neatly sewn with flat, finished seams, and its punched metal diffuser simultaneously softens and reflects the light. The clear cord has a foot-controlled, full-range dimmer. Simple assembly required. Bulbs (not included): three incandescent 60W/120V/E26/A19. Made in China. Materials: Powder-coated steel base; polyester shade with matte backing; anodized micro-perforated aluminum diffuser; rubber glides. Measurements:H 68" W 22" Cord L 79"
Waterproof, shockproof, cordless and rechargeable – the Ball Portable LED Lamp (2009) redefines how we think about light. The Ball Lamp can be used indoors, outdoors or even on a body of water for a stunning lighting display. Further expanding how the Ball Lamp can be used, there are three modes to choose from: static in white, red, blue or green; dynamic with unlimited colors changing automatically; and candle effect. One six-hour charge will provide 8 to 20 hours of power, depending on which mode and intensity level is used. Suitable for outdoor use when the temperature is 32° - 104°F. The energy-efficient LEDs have an estimated lifetime of 50,000 hours. Bulbs (included): 16 white LEDs, 36 color LEDs. UL Listed. Made in China. Materials: Injection-molded high-density polyethylene; LEDs. Measurements:Diameter 14"
Rather than develop his career within a single design discipline – be it industrial, furniture, interior, lighting or architectural design – Michele De Lucchi chose to move freely among them all, creating door pulls for Valli Colombo, laptops for Olivetti and tape dispensers for Pelikan while designing banks in Germany and apartment buildings in Japan. His Tolomeo Lamp (1987), designed in collaboration with Artemides R&D department head Giancarlo Fassina, was honored with the Compasso dOro Award in 1989, earning worldwide recognition for its perfect marriage of design and engineering. Since then, the Tolomeo Collection has grown to include an assortment of sizes and styles, each one beginning with a heavy base and ending with a pivoting shade. In between, the multi-armed body is fully adjustable, with steel tension cables providing infinite positions in which the lamp can be held. Bulb (not included): incandescent 100W/E26/A19. UL Listed. Made in Hungary. Materials: Extruded die-cast aluminum with high-polished finish; steel tension cables. Measurements:H 51" max Base Diameter 9" Cord L 60"
Saving a factory and helping the employees keep their jobs was not something Peter Bowles thought hed be doing when he designed his first bone china light. The story begins in Stoke-on-Trent, the heart of the British ceramics industry, where its prized porcelain has been produced for more than three centuries. Bowles convinced a tableware factory to produce his first design, but as the orders started to come in, he learned the factory would be closing. Rather than moving production overseas, Bowles bought the factory and offered the entire staff new jobs with his company, Original BTC. The Drop 1 Pendant (2000) is beautifully crafted of hand-cast bone china. Creating these lights involves a highly skilled, labor-intensive process that begins with raw clay and ends with biscuit firing, glazing, glossing and firing again. When lit, the shade has a translucent glow that allows for warm diffused light. Attention to detail is at the heart of every Drop 1 Pendant, right down to the braided cord, which was designed by Peter and can be found on every light his company makes. Drop is UL Listed and suitable for contract use. Bulb (not included): 40W/120V/E26. Made in England. Materials: Natural bone china shade and ceiling rose; braided cotton covered cord. Measurements:H 9.5" W 6" D 6" Cord L 59", 2 lbs.
For his simple and innovative lighting, Jason Miller draws on everyday aspects of American culture, transforming them into something surprising and beautiful. For his Modo Sconce (2009), Miller was inspired by off-the-shelf industrial parts like those found on Canal Street, not far from his Brooklyn studio. We have re-engineered inexpensive parts that are made by the thousands in China or India, says Miller about the pieces manufacturing. Modos parts are made by high-end machine shops here in America that typically work for the airline industry. While the inspiration is a bit banal, it is now a very sophisticated product. The sconces components are painstakingly engineered and custom CNC-milled from solid aluminum. Bulb (included): incandescent half-silver globe 25W/G25/E26. UL and CUL Listed. Made in U.S.A. The Modo Collection features hand-blown glass globes with slight variances in shape and color, which make each piece unique. Materials: Machined aluminum; aluminum tube; smoked glass globes. Measurements:H 18" W 6.5" D 10", 6 lbs.
Inspired by the simplicity and utility found in a pair of serving tongs, designer Peter Stathis created his Tube Top Lamp (2006). The satisfying composition features a transparent acrylic base that supports a lightweight mesh shade held in place by tension. The effect is that of a floating form over a barely visible base, tethered only by a fabric-covered cord. Stathis work is included in the permanent collections of the Cranbrook Art Museum, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and MoMA in New York. On/off full-range dimmer. Bulb (included): one white incandescent 60W/120V/G16.5/candelabra base. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Clear acrylic base; vinyl-coated polymer fabric shade; fabric-covered cord. Measurements:H 60" x W 18" x D 9"
Venezuela-born Pablo Pardo graduated in 1986 with an industrial design degree from the University of Cincinnati. In 1993, he established Pablo Designs in San Francisco, a studio that has since gained international recognition for its creations. The studio operates with the belief that the right lighting can transform almost any environment, challenging traditional designs with innovative solutions that distill lighting down to its bare essence: form and light. Sporting a crisp, expressive profile, the Cielo Chandelier (2012) uses energy-efficient flat-panel LED technology with a 50,000-hour life span to provide fully dimmable glare-free illumination. Suitable for residential and commercial spaces alike. Use alone or mix and match multiples to create dynamic groupings. Bulb (included): LED array. Made in China. Materials: Aluminum housing; polycarbonate lens; ABS and steel canopy; fabric-covered cord. Measurements:H 9" Diameter 18.5" Maximum drop 131", 14 lbs.
DWR Exclusive Son of a draftsman and a homemaker, Bernard-Albin Gras was born in Saint-Raphaël, France, in 1886. He would become an engineer and tireless inventor who registered dozens of patents, including one for Lampe Gras (1921). A product of Gras passion to improve working conditions for hundreds of laborers in ordinary machine shops, research laboratories and design studios in the 1920s, this mobile lighting solution is capable of meeting the needs of many different users. The architect Le Corbusier seized upon the design, which satisfied the demands of his ideology about the perfect object-tool: a form reduced to its pure function, free of superfluous ornament. Corbu furnished his design offices and architectural projects with Lampes Gras, and other early adopters included Eileen Gray, Man Ray and Robert Mallet-Stevens. The cast steel frames are made without screws or welded joints; all parts contribute to utmost effectiveness of the whole. Bulb (not included): LED, CFL or incandescent; E12 base; 40W max. Made in China. Materials: Cast steel body; chrome finish or matte black or white powder-coated finish; Bakelite sphere motion component. Measurements:H 22.5"–28.75" Shade Diameter 8.25" Cord L 77"
Waterproof, shockproof, cordless and rechargeable – the Globe Portable LED Lamp (2009) redefines how we think about light. The Globe Lamp can be used indoors, outdoors or even on a body of water for a stunning lighting display. Further expanding how the Globe Lamp can be used, there are three modes to choose from: static in white, red, blue or green; dynamic with unlimited colors changing automatically; and candle effect. One six-hour charge will provide 8 to 20 hours of power, depending on which mode and intensity level is used. Suitable for outdoor use when the temperature is 32° - 104°F.

Described by Brooklyn-based designer Jason Miller as nature made better, the Superordinate Antler Collection (2003) could be called an artful collision between hunting lodge décor and high-end contemporary design. Made completely out of ceramic with classic flame light bulbs at its tips, it will certainly provide a bright conversation piece for your next dinner party. When turned on, the bulbs throw shadows of the branch-like antlers onto the walls and ceiling, creating further decorative forms. Bulbs (included): incandescent candelabra 25W/120V/E17. Made in U.S.A. A modern sconce with a rustic edge. The ceramic structure is cast from molds of deer antlers. Includes two bulbs and wall mount hardware. Materials: Ceramic.

A 300-watt car headlamp was the inspiration behind Toio (1962), designed by Achille Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. The Toio was part of the brothers ready-made objects series and included the use of parts of a fishing pole in addition to a headlamp imported from the United States. Placed along the lamps nickel-plated brass hexagonal stem are fishing rod rings, used to guide the electrical cord from bulb to transformer. This transformer acts as ballast by being located at the base of the height-adjustable stem (the bulb is not tilt adjustable). A cleat on the base is provided to keep the cord neatly coiled when the lamp is adjusted to a lower height. Toio is part of the permanent collection at MoMA in New York. Bulb (included): incandescent 300W/120V/Par56/MFL. Made in Italy. Materials: Enamel steel base; nickel-plated height adjustable brass stem; telescopic head; on/off switch on black cord. Measurements:H 67"–78.75" W 7.75"
Whether something is modern for 80 years or modern beyond its years, the date when it was made is not as relevant as how and why it was designed. The Murano Chandelier (1920) is made with a glass-forging technique developed to amplify flickering candlelight in the 17th century. Produced on the island of Murano, it represents the grandeur of centuries-old craftsmanship. Dramatic in its scale, color and delicate filigree, the design is a reproduction of a Venetian-style chandelier, with scrolling leaf and flower motifs. Due to the artisan craftsmanship that goes into each chandelier, some of the joints will show clear pieces of glass. This is not a defect but part of the process that insures no two pieces will be exactly the same. UL Listed. Bulbs (not included): incandescent 40W/120V/E12/torpedo. Made in Italy. Materials: Murano glass; chrome. Measurements:H 41" Diameter 27.5" Cord Length 118" Chain Length 23.5", 22 lbs.
In 2003, while opening their homewares store Niche in SoHo, Jeremy Pyles and Mary Welch were unable to find lights that satisfied their super picky sensibilities. Taking matters into his own hands, Pyles designed the subtly sexy hand-blown Stamen Pendant, and Niche Modern was born. Fast-forward several years later, and we now have his Sola 36 Chandelier (2009), which takes obvious styling cues from the original Stamen. This chandelier features a carefully handcrafted aluminum canopy and five hand-blown glass globes with Edison light bulbs for a nostalgic touch that juxtaposes nicely with the pieces decidedly modern feel. Like snowflakes, no two of these chandeliers are alike. Specify 36-, 48- or 60-inch overall height when ordering. Bulbs (included): 40W Edison incandescent. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Polished aluminum canopy; glass globes. Measurements:H 36"–60" Diameter 36", 35 lbs. Globes: H 10" Diameter 10.5"
DWR Exclusive Originally known as Davey & Co., the company was established in 1885 and has roots dating back to the shipyards of 19th-century London. Its clients back then were the marine merchants operating out of London's West India Docks, and Davey Lights graced the decks of many of history's best-known vessels, including, it is said, the Titanic. Architects and designers have been longtime fans of Davey's industrial aesthetic, like their Bracket Deck Light (1920s), and satisfying the needs of this market helped the company continue to thrive. When manufacturing challenges brought the threat of closure, Peter Bowles stepped in and purchased the company. As part of Original BTC, which Bowles founded, Davey Lighting now supplies marine, industrial and decorative lighting to residential and contract customers – making Davey available to the public (instead of only to the trade) for the first time. All components are handcrafted by small specialist suppliers according to centuries-old traditions. Bulbs (not included) 60W/GLS/E26 or compact fluorescent equivalent. Made in England. Heavy cast reflector is retained by brass wing nuts and bolts for easy access to re-lamp. Raw bronze and brass will patina beautifully over time. Materials: Sandblasted bronze; copper arm; brass wing nuts and bolts; clear glass dome. Measurements:H 15" W 6.75" D 9", 4 lbs.
An innovative take on a hanging glass globe, Jasper Morrison created his Glo-Ball series of lamps for Flos (1998) to provide a range of blown-glass globes for almost every imaginable situation. Like the rest of the series, the Glo-Ball F3 Floor Lamp is crafted with hand-blown opaline glass that's externally acid etched and flashed for a pristine surface that evenly diffuses warm glowing light. With a grey fabric-covered power cord and silver painted steel stem discreetly supporting the diffuser, the F3 gives the illusion of floating in air. A continuous 0-100% dimmer on the cord allows for instant adjustment of light intensity. Bulb (included): halogen 250W/T10/E26. UL Listed. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Hand-blown, acid-etched white opaline glass; die-cast aluminum support; painted steel base and stem; grey fabric-covered polarized power cord; dimmer switch.
