Christmas Lights: Give A Present Of A Cool Light Fitting

ORANGE COMPLEX is a website for consumers who like to consume less, but better …


We have just discovered, a terrific site for products produced in an ecologically sound manner, for consumers who like to consume less, but better. Check it out. One of the best things about OrangeComplex, which was founded by Irishman Paul Donovan, and delivers all over Europe, are the smart light fittings, from sweet paper mobiles to loop lights with bright orange cord and soft white bulbs to a glamorous quirky chandelier … We love these three:

Aquatic Paper Mobiles, €60-€80 Create a playful and fun underwater scene and liven up your kids’ bedroom or playroom. With a little bit of patience and some glue you will have fun as you see the lampshade develop from sheets of paper to a 3D creature! Select from a range of deep sea critters in a wide range of colours.

The lampshade will easily fit around your existing ceiling light bulb. The lampshade is for use with LED light bulb only. Maximum 11 Watt and 400lm (lumen) intensity to produce the same amount of light as an old 60-watt bulb.


Loop Line Lamp, €180 When you first lay your hands on this your first instinct is to knot it, coil it and twist it. The Loop Line Lamp is the perfect mixture of playfulness and functionality. Position it at a reading chair and come dinnertime wrap it up and hang above the dining table.

7 metres of rope, 2.5cm in diameter. Polypropylene and glazed ceramic fittings.
40 watt energy saving bulb included. Connect to electric supply via attached junction.

The Marie SC Chandelier, €198 Inspired by the world famous Polish physicist and chemist, Marie Sklodowska Curie, the chandelier contains 60 test tubes. Create a swirling cascade of colour or add water and flowers for a thriving floral arrangement. Decorate with red and green at Christmas, the possibilities are endless.

The tubes are detachable and allow for easy reorganisation. They are also dishwasher friendly. Details: Diameter: 47cm Length: 110cm.

We had to add one last thing, we love it so much – it’s the HOH! Indoor Vertical Garden €42. Add colour (and oxygen) to any room in your home with the HOH! Add six plants to each HOH! and bring a selection of natural colours to your home. Involve the kids when building up your HOH! and teach them about caring for plants and the planet. Put it in your bedroom to purify the air or place one in the kitchen for a vertical herb garden.
