Lustworthy high-end lighting is often out of reach for the typical consumer. Leading design shop Ammunition and designer-­lighting company Gantri have teamed up to change that, with a line of stunning table, floor and wall-­mounted lights that cost as little as $150. They keep the price tag low, thanks to 3-D printing, which has long been used for mock-ups and prototyping but is rarely utilized for manufacturing high-end design objects. Victoria Slaker, vice president of industrial design at Ammunition, says the lights appeal to design-savvy customers interested in unique-­looking objects. “They’re a little bit of a statement in that sense; they’re not purely functional.” —Sanya Mansoor
