Lighting design: a source of emotion

The brilliant ideas of Jeffrey Goodman, a light designer who draws on the ancient craft of glass-blowing in his Greenwich Village studio in order to create playfully creative and eco-friendly lamps and chandeliers

Dynamic geometries, visual emotions, shifting suggestions: interior design lighting is both a science and an art, and it can have a notable influence on the quality of our domestic and workplace habitats.

The light which irradiates from lamps and chandeliers, and from more contemporary lighting technologies, is undoubtedly a fundamental element in our perception of objects and spaces, satisfying our visual needs and facilitating our recognition functions. But light is also a source of psychological influence, capable of positively affecting our habits and behaviour.

For example, imagine a kitchen with carefully focused and diffused lighting that interacts with the colours of materials, highlighting the beauty of surfaces and shapes and the visual composition of the dishes you are preparing: don’t you feel more creative, optimistic and concentrated at the very thought?

 

Interior light design

Wall lamps, hanging lamps, table lamps, floor lamps, applique lamps – in other words – are much more than just useful accessories.

Jeffrey Goodman is well aware of this, as he works in his studio in Greenwich Village, carefully crafting glass to serve the purposes of his sophisticated aesthetic and symbolic lighting designs.

Skillfully applying and updating the ancients arts of glass blowing, the New York light designer forges lamps that are both timeless and contemporary… in an original, playful and eco-friendly way.

Having grown up by the sea, in Wildwood, New Jersey, surrounded by a rich but fragile ecosystem, Goodman is highly sensitive to environmental issues. This explains his constant use of partially recycled and recyclable sustainable materials, such as glass, bamboo or alluminium manufactured without toxic finishing processes.

Each piece is a unique example of living light created through flowing lines and vivid colours, with names that evoke the shapes of nature or of childhood objects: pearls, water, waves, ribbons, musical boxes… a poetic world, playful and imaginative, throwing its light on the better sides of those around us, and on ours.

By the way: do you think it’s just a coincidence that Jeffrey’s inseparable four-legged friend is entirely white, and not black?
