Understated playfulness

One of the ceiling lamps of Burgoo American Bar and Restaurant in The Block (a mall in Quezon City). Much more subdued and elegant than the brightly-colored lamps in their branch in The Podium (a mall in Pasig City), but just as playful.

Seattle is giving you a shout out with Mondy's photo! It was on your blog that I finally put two and two together about Dr. José Rizal and the bridge and park named for him here in Seattle. Cheers, and I love today's playful lighting fixture. Fun shadows.

I think that's one of the most interesting light fixtures I've seen in a while. Very nice!

I think this is a beautiful fixture. I really like it.

It sure does set a mood for a great dining experience. I like the spider web effect it projects on the ceiling too.

I like all the different elements that go into this lamp. The shape, the colors, the pattern on the ceiling...it's hard to tell just how large it is.

I like it too! Simple, yet nice.

Jilly said...

What a beautiful lamp - a lamp within a lamp! - and loving the shadows too.

«Louis» likes the play of the geometry between the fixture and the shadows. Nice shot, Hilda!

This well-designed light fixture would actually work in some churches...

I like the idea of a lamp within a lamp: it's easier to clean the outer glass leving undisturbed the beautiful and probably delicate interior.

Gattina said...
