Universities aren't always the place you'll find modern design, but these study hall lighting solutions for Örebro University in Sweden are intended to change that. Taking after the aesthetic of fungi, the lighting solutions are the work of design firm Tengbom and housed within a new building by Juul Frost architects.

The lighting solutions sprout upward from the study tables and are outfitted with outlets to provide power to students' devices. The whimsical design of the study hall lighting solution allows them to give a cheery disposition to the modern interior space of the new building. Better yet, the mushroom-like lighting offers customized illumination that ensures that each studier has the right level of light to see their texts clearly.
