The Tati and Kala sconce lighting fixtures look as though they once mended broken bones. By that, I am clearly referring to its cast-like material. Instead of being crafted out of plaster and fiberglass, these lamps were made out of metallic mesh and silicone.

Designed by Arturo Álvarez, the Tati and Kala sconce lighting fixtures may have an overall minimalist aesthetic, yet their textured surfaces make them stand out admirably. From layered strips to repetitive dents, each lamp sports a shapely design that is also full of movement. I especially like how the Tati and Kala sconce lighting fixtures look against stark white walls. It makes the details of each lamp even more stunningly captivating.
