From a variety of decorative accessories for the tabletop to a very well known teapot design and everything in between, Alessi boasts a rich catalog of products we love from noteworthy designers including Michael Graves, Alessandro Mendini, Philippe Starck and more. In today’s Fave 5, we wanted to highlight our five favorite products from the Italian design factory.

Kettle With Bird Whistle by Michael Graves

Michael Graves Kettle
Calling it a design icon does not do the Michael Graves tea kettle justice. Designed in 1985 by Michael Graves, this kettle has been a top seller for Alessi since its inception. It features a youthful design with a stainless steel pot and bird spout that whistles when water has come to a boil. Although it is an icon among design enthusiasts, it is also a completely functional tea kettle and well reviewed by people who own it. It’s available in black, blue or super white and is part of the Michael Graves collection for Alessi.

Kastor Pencil Sharpener by Rodrigo Torres

Kastor Pencil Sharpener
The Kastor Pencil Sharpener by Rodrigo Torres for Alessi is a unique accessory that is perfect for the modern office.

If you prefer to use pens in your office setting, Kastor can also act as a decorative paperweight.

Juicy Salif Citrus Juicer by Philippe Stark

Alessi Juicy Salif Citrus Juicer
Philippe Starck is a household name when it comes to modern design and has created products for the best names in design including Alessi, Kartell and Flos. Among his contributions to Alessi is the Juicy Salif Citrus Juicer, a handheld tool for creating fresh-squeezed juice while also establishing its presence as a contemporary piece of your kitchen’s decor. It was originally designed in 1990 and has since become a staple of the Alessi collection.

This iconic, award-winning designer for Alessi is behind the complete Anna G. collection of modern kitchen accessories, as well as the Alessi Parrot Corkscrew and the Alessi Moka Stovetop Espresso. The Anna Gong collection from Mendini is said to be inspired by his girlfriend at the time of each piece’s inception and as a result, a clearly defined face is found in each product of the collection. Aside from its fun and colorful design, the Anna G. Corkscrew makes opening a bottle of wine easier than you could imagine.

Small Scale, BIG Style

2015 May 18

We’re celebrating our favorite studio design brands this month at Lumens and wanted to take a minute to dive a little deeper into why we love the small scale, big style attitude of these designers.

Niche Modern

Niche Modern Haus
As a Beacon, NY based design studio that focuses on glass-blown fixtures, Niche Modern has brought a number of gorgeous glass pendants to the modern lighting market and become one of our favorite brands to work with. The company was actually founded accidentally by Jeremy Pyles and Mary Welch in 2003 while opening a home furnishings store in Manhattan, but we are grateful for their designs and the contemporary niche they fill.

Michael McHale Designs

Michael McHaleAlso hailing from the state of New York, Michael McHale Designs is a small lighting studio that takes industrial components and mixes them with decorative lighting elements to create a diverse selection of chandeliers and pendant lighting. Founder Michael McHale also created his brand by accident while shopping for a light fixture for his NY apartment. Frustrated that he could not find what he was looking for, he decided to become a lighting designer himself. The company’s decorative lighting line includes fixtures using luxurious European crystal mixed with galvanized piping, as well as a collection of Raw fixtures that are unapologetic about their straightforward industrial nature.

Brokis Shadow Pendants
Founded in 2010 by a group of glass artistans in the Czech Republic, Brokis is a new line to Lumens that we are loving. The company’s designers create gorgeous, hand-blown glass pendant lighting and lamps that are stunning in modern spaces. The Shadow collection of pendant lighting combines Bohemian glass-blowing practices with the classic form of the French atelier pendant, while the Muffin collection of pendants and table lamps use Bohemian glass with beautiful natural oak bases. If you love the look of hand-blown glass, you will want to see the complete offering from Brokis – exclusively available at

Pablo Designs

Founded in 1993 by Pablo Pardo, Pablo Designs has impressed us over the years with its high quality design work, unmatched innovation and use of energy-efficient LED lamping. The company continues to impress us to this day with products like its latest offering, the Swell pendant collection. For any modern lighting needs in residential or commercial spaces, look to the options available from Pablo.

Bocci 14 Series Pendant
Founded by designer Omer Arbel in 2005, Bocci is a small studio based out of Vancouver, Canada with its office being located next to the Pacific Ocean. Who wouldn’t be inspired and creative working right next to the ocean? The company’s name translates to the word “buds” in English and it is apparent in the lighting products the company offers. Bocci’s 14 Series, 21 Series and 28 Series look like small “buds” of light and can be grouped into clusters of statement-making decorative lighting.

Standard Socket Spun Pendants

Standard Socket

Seattle-based Standard Socket is a relatively new company in the decorative lighting space, only getting its start in 2012. Although young in the space, the company is growing its name and offers an impressive collection of modern lighting. Standard Socket enlists a diverse roster of up-and-coming talented designers to create a wide variety of skillfully crafted light fixtures. From the copper finished Spun Pendants to the origami-like Chipboard Pendant, we are loving the creativity this young company is fostering.


Luxxbox Helm PendantsFounded by designer Jason Bird, Luxxbox is a small studio lighting brand with offices in Northern California and Australia. The company offers a collection of modern pendant lighting that gives any space a cutting-edge aesthetic. Perfect for commercial applications, the Flirt Pendant and Helm Pendant from Luxxbox are both captivating and attractive pendant designs that are bound to make a statement. Although Jason Bird also designs contemporary furniture for Luxxbox, his Helm and Flirt pendant designs are offered exclusively at Lumens.

Castor Design

Castor Dead Stock Lamps
Castor is another Canadian lighting studio that was founded by former punk rockers looking to design light fixtures from recycled materials. Based in Toronto, Castor finds its inspiration from salvaging items like fire extinguishers, fluorescent tube lights and old lamp parts and then re-purposes them into decorative light fixtures. Although Castor is a small design studio, we appreciate that they have made an even smaller impact on the Earth through the use of creative recycling.

Handcrafted lighting designs from studio brands like the above are what helps keep modern lighting unique and interesting. For more great options from studio brands, check out the complete list of small studio lighting designers here.

An Interview With Our Lighting Star, Zack Rosson

2015 May 6

Zack Rosson at Lumens.comAt Lumens, we take pride in our expert service and are happy to have experienced lighting consultants working with our shoppers to help fulfill any of their lighting or interior design needs. One of our top lighting consultants who is undoubtedly a Lighting Star at Lumens is Zack Rosson. Zack exemplifies the role of being a lighting professional and for anyone who has visited our Sacramento Showroom, you have likely experienced his professionalism firsthand.

We had a chance to catch up with Zack and ask him a few questions about why he loves being a lighting designer at Lumens.

1 – How long have you been working in lighting design?

I started in the lighting design field back in 2002 at a small store called Classic Lighting in Stockton, California. I was the showroom floor designer for two years and also started an apprenticeship with lighting while at Classic Lighting. Then, I came to Sacramento and waited for Lumens to open its doors. I had interviewed at Benning Design (later purchased by Lumens’ CEO Ken Plumlee) and my hire date at Lumens was February 14, 2006. That was nine years ago and the rest is history.

2 – What do you love about decorative lighting design?

Lighting brings in layers of the design. You can set the tone and feel to any space just with the ability to have light by wall washing, with decorative designs or with ambient task lighting.

Zack Rosson & Kerrie Kelly

3 – Why do you believe you are a Lighting Star?

I try to bring the most important aspects of lighting to a space with the best of my ability. I look for areas in the lighting world that get most overlooked and try to apply layers and beauty to fulfill the interior design side of me and the utilitarian objectives of everyday life.

4 – What does it mean to you to be certified by the American Lighting Association?

To be certified by the American Lighting Association (ALA) is the backbone to all of my lighting dilemmas. Without the training and guidance of this main essential tool, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Zack Rosson & Kerrie Kelly Lighting Project

5 – How does having this certification help you with your clientele and help Lumens in general?

ALA certification is just the foundation to being a Lumens Human. It is the hunger for knowledge in the areas of lighting and design that drives me to be in a constant state of learning. We have weekly training sessions to make sure we are up to speed on the latest trends and technology advancement. I am committed to complete satisfaction and not just focused on making the next sale for our shoppers. I want to truly understand both functional requirements, as well as aesthetic desires before making lighting recommendations. I listen to our customers, love to get positive feedback and strive to learn from my mistakes. I’m constantly looking for ways to improve and create the best experience for the customer.

6 – What are some of your favorite projects you have worked on and why?

I love working with designers and the general home owners. I get so much joy seeing a space transform into something they love and they get to live with beautiful designs everyday. I truly appreciate what I do.

Zack Rosson Lighting Project

7 – If you had to choose three of your favorite lighting brands at Lumens, what would they be and why?

First, Tech Lighting because of the flexibility to adapt to so many different applications for both commercial and residential uses. Second, Modern Fan Co. for its sleek and modern designs and the way they can design a fan to fit any need. Third would have to be Robert Abbey since I love the mid-century aesthetic and the company works with so many designers like Jonathan Adler and Mary McDonald. They are well known names that bring the sense of quality that clients look for, plus their products ship relatively fast.

Zack has worked on many design projects in Northern California and often partners with Sacramento’s Kerrie Kelly Design Lab. He also contributed to Kerrie Kelly’s 2009 interior design book presented by Sunset Magazine, Home Decor: A Sunset Design Guide.

Swing by our lighting showroom in Midtown Sacramento and let Zack help you with your next lighting project.
