The Illuminated Workspace of a Lighting Designer and Glass Artist

Lighting is one of the most important elements of any room. In today’s featured workspace, the lights are decorations and inspiration—fashioned by glass artist and lamp designer Alison Berger.

House & Garden offers a lovely description of Berger’s studio:

Prismatic glass lights with low-level filament bulbs are placed on vintage library cases inside her studio and dangle from everywhere – on ceilings, walls and as slim bronze fixtures. The lamps are kept on all day, creating a magical meditative atmosphere. Each one captures and refracts the changing hues of the light outside, by turns tropical green, watery blue or the brilliant warmth of the golden hour as the sun sets. And then at night the lights come into their own, painting the walls with shadows. ‘The word lighting almost doesn’t make sense,’ Alison says of her work. ‘It is more atmospheric illumination. The lamps are these glowing pieces you can use for sculptural purposes. They are not task lights. They work best layered with architectural task lighting in a home.’

Each glass piece of hers is mouth-blown, optically pure crystal. Besides the lamps, the studio is a bright space filled with natural light, plants, and rustic-looking objects. See more photos in the article linked below.

If you have a workspace of your own to show off, share them with us by adding it to our Lifehacker Workspace Show and Tell Flickr pool. Make sure any photos you include are at least 640×360. Keeping them to 16:9 helps, too! Include a little text about the stuff you used, how you came up with the design, and any other relevant details. If your clever organization and good design sense catches our eye, you might be the next featured workspace.
