A Modern Lamp Inspired by Sweet Treats
View Slideshow

Inspired by the candy-colored, sugary French confection known as macarons, Spanish designer Silvia Ceñal designed this colorful lamp. The sweet treat is made from simple ingredients and following that very same idea, Ceñal combined simple materials to achieve the Macaron Lamp.

Despite its simple ingredients, eggs, icing sugar, granulated sugar, and almond powder, macarons aren’t easy to make. The lamp falls in line as it took some time to get the perfect proportions. With two pieces of wood, Ceñal wrapped a thick, textured cord around them to create a “shade”.

The lamp is available in two sizes and in four different colors.
