This is the Filaments Lamps designed by the British design team Scott, Rich & Victoria. They got the inspiration for these lamps from the original filament lamps from the mid 1800's, and I think these lamps prove that less is more. They look cool by them selves, and the lamp doesn't need any shading. I like the effect of the filament threads when they are laid in a pattern inside the bulb.
