It’s become an annual tradition for Head Hi, a hybrid bookshop, espresso bar, and creative space near the Brooklyn Navy Yard, to invite an international roster of artists and designers to whip up experimental lamps for a group show that celebrates everything about light. For the third edition, more than 50 participants are offering up personality-packed fixtures, from a elephant-shaped aluminum table lamp by Lambert et Fils to a lightbulb affixed to a plastic blender by Franc Palaia. Visitors can nominate their favorite lamp of the bunch, with the winning designer receiving a stay at the newly opened Ace Hotel Brooklyn.
