At this week's ICFF, we noted an abundance of suspension light clusters. Here are some additional ideas from our design files (also see DIY: Glass Orb Cluster Light for a do-it-yourself project from Area San Francisco).

Above: Omer Arbel of the Canadian company Bocci has a new line of blown glass lights called 28, featuring "a distorted spherical shape with a composed collection of inner shapes, one of which houses a low voltage lamp." Got to Bocci for more information.

Above: Ilse Crawford groups Nelson Pendant Lights in different sizes and shapes in her design for the Das Kranzbach spa hotel in the Bavarian Alps.

Above: We admire this lantern cluster created by Maxwell at Apartment Therapy; for instructions, go to Big, Beautiful Paper Globe Chandelier.

Above: We love the serenity of this Japanese-inspired dining room; from the portfolio of photographer Adrian Briscoe.
