Apollo Modular Lamps

General lighting and lamps are amongst the most subjective of ambiance-setting decor for the home. Since we’re not about to build our own lamps, customizability is the next best thing, and that’s an understatement when it comes to describing International’s Apollo Modular Lighting Systems. These spun aluminum shades are super thin (1mm), sleek, and come in either solid or perforated versions for manipulating the shadows cast on neighbouring walls. They look great solo or stacked (up to 4 shades per lamp), can be mixed and matched in any of nearly 750 unique variations, and – best of all – they’re actually reasonably priced, especially when compared to some of the junk our local lighting stores are selling.
