I love the clean, almost unfinished, look of the 'ben HELDER' series. They happen to look like large, Asian-inspired lanterns with their boxy shape, wooden frame and rice paper shades. Nevertheless, there is something entirely modern about the collection that makes it perfect for just about any household.

Designed by Ben Werkt, the ben HELDER series (which means 'I am bright') is proportioned based on the golden ratio, which is believed to make art aesthetically pleasing. I have to agree, especially in this case.

Light and airy, the ben HELDER series is comprised of three models: pendant lamp, a table lamp and a floor lamp. Each one reflects the golden rectangle design that sets it apart from other typical lighting.
