Crash & Bell by Foscarini, a design studio based in Italy, is a series of light fixtures inspired by traditional drum kits. Mimicking the percussion instrument's look in both size, texture and material, it could easily be mistaken for the real deal, simply tweaked to hold a bulb and shed some much-needed light in living spaces.

Created for Diesel, Crash & Bell by Foscarini is comprised of two styles. The first is a classic disc shape that really brings to mind the rock and roll band staple while the second one has been manipulated into a domed shape for more directional lighting. Sleek and chic, Psfk points out that "unfortunately you won’t get the same sonic effects when you hit these with a drumstick." But that probably won't stop people from trying.
