New Classics: LZF's Nut Suspension Light

There is an overhead lighting which puts my mind in a twist. Its intertwined shape makes me gaze in its infinity-like loops and try to figure out how it’s constructed. (In fact, I believe Emily Thorne of Revenge would really dig it.) In addition to being fascinating in form, the Nut Suspension Lamp from LZF is a stunner that contrasts between ubercontemporary, minimalist, midcentury contemporary, transitional and conventional styles, thanks to the combination of its modern form and also the ambient glow supplied by its handmade wood veneer. Industrial designer Miguel Herranz designed the lighting in 1998, and 15 decades after it has proved it has staying power. If you check out the way it functions in most of the rooms below, you’ll see why.

The lamp floats like a cloud, however its natural wood veneer provides a strong presence. At 16 1/2 inches in diameter and approximately 8 inches, it’s a fantastic match over a kitchen table or island.

The amalgamated design makes you think of the symbol for infinity; its loops make you stop and stare at it a fantastic long time. Seriously, I may have to try out some origami and re-create it with a long strip of paper afterwards.

This light plays off the wood finishes used in the kitchen and also the curves of the Cherner Chairs.

The light was not on my radar until I admired it in my cousin’s coastal cabin, where she has mixed antiques and contemporary pieces against crisp white walls. The light’s design allows it to wed modern and traditional styles.

The lighting is an important part of the balance between straight lines and irregular ones within this modern home.

It’s also an important part of the opinion from outside in the exact same residence, centered between the huge window panes.

Herranz also designed the Orbit Sconce, shown on the walls of this kitchen. As seen here, several designers on have paired wood-veneer LZF pendants with George Nelson’s pendant lights. Together they produce an intriguing midcentury modern and modern conversation.

Speaking of that, the lighting is apt in a home with midcentury modern style; it forges strong relationships with wood beams and paneling.

The light’s flexibility means that you can utilize it in almost any room of the home. In this scenario its shape, materials and ambient glow add warmth and character to a dreamy closet. (After watching all Downton Abbey over the holidays, I wonder whether a closet like this includes a modern-day Mr. Bates–like valet.)
