Artemide's new product: Sisifo
11 March 2015
A truly unique new table light from Artemide, the Sisifo lamp consists of a floating illusion LED flat panel which is completely adjustable. The hybrid luminaire balances the need for illuminating a space and for focusing on tasks; this makes the light an ideal business/personal use lamp. With its freedom of movement, large base and LED panel it lends itself to large and small tables, the flat panel allows the lamp to fit in to smaller areas, the large base gives it stability to be moved freely.
The LED source produces a warm white tone to create a soothing environment for relaxation or focused jobs. The Sisifo large diffuser eliminates any harsh shadows with its adjustable head and only throws out a soft, calming light which feels gentle in comparison to some LED lamps. Designed by Scott Wilson in 2012 and introduced at the Frankfurt light + Building show. Available online now.

Artemide: Issey Miyake Growing in Popularity
12 February 2015
The online popularity of the Issey Miyake for Artemide range is undeniably huge, throughout social media particularly the fold away designs have received a lot of attention. Issey Miyake is dedicated to the needs and existence of men within his clothing designs. These values have aided him in the understanding of creating products for living. Miyake is very environmentally aware, creating the lighting pieces at his Reality Lab where the perfect material would be made from recycled matter. The lights are made up from PET bottles re-treated fibres, this material both created a unique diffused lighting effect, but more importantly would reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions up to 40% compared to making new materials for production.
The design of the lights are based up on traditional Japanese lighting and shapes of origami, but combined with Miyaki’s ability to add a modern twist for contemporary interiors. Since the release of the collaborative range the Artemide X Issey Miyake lights have become the most relevant and favoured sustainable lighting technology.
A new addition to this range is the Wuni Suspension and Mogura Table lamp. The Wuni suspension is quite unique within the collection, the angular folds concertina into a spherical shape which is slightly reminiscent of the Hoshigame table lamp, but more elaborate and designed for ceiling display. The Mogura Table lamp is very much like the Hakofugu Table lamp design, unusual angled 3D squares, but four of them stacked to create the Mogura lamp.

Maison and Objet Key Trends for 2015
31 January 2015
The Maison and Objet event in Paris is a forecast for interior trends for the year ahead, comparable to Fashion week in Spring/Summer. This year the event has predicted four key trends based upon the popular themes and attention created by the exhibitors and exhibition visitors. The first unsurprising trend is Metallics. Particularly warm toned hues. This choice of metallic finishes has progressively become more popular for a few years now and has gradually filtered even down onto the high street! Here are our picks for the Metallic trend:
1 - Kartell Fly Precious Pendants 2 - Tom Dixon Copper Mirror Ball shade 3 - Anglepoise Original 1227 in Chrome 4 - Tom Dixon Base Copper Floor Lamp 5 - &Tradition Utzon in Copper 6 - Terzani Orten’zia Table Lamp in Gold 7 - Foscarini Birdie Table Lamp in Chrome 8 - &Tradition Flowerpot in Copper 9 - Tom Dixon Base Table Lamp in Polish Brass 10 - Kartell Bourgie Copper Table Lamp
Our second trend From Maison and Objet is Hints of Neon, maybe not to everyone’s liking but a just a hint of a bright colour can add a bright cheerful pop of colour into our homes, especially appropriate for the Spring/Summer time. It is a nod to the 90’s as Fashion has also done. Neon has been seen on textiles, furniture, home accessories and also lighting. Be brave and give it a try! Here are our Picks for Neon Trend:
1 – Artemide Tolomeo Tavolo Micro in orange 2 – Artemide Tolomeo Tavolo Micro in yellow 3 – Vibia Wind Suspension in green or orange 4 – Oluce Canopy 422 in Pink 5 – Kartell Ghost Chairs in assorted colours 6 – Kartell Cindy Table Lamp in orange 7 – Kartell Bourgie Table Lamp in Blue
The third trend on the 2015 forecast is the colour Santorini Blue a shade to provoke a Mediterranean but modern vibe, a shade of blue to create tranquillity and timeless look within a space. These are our Santorini Blue Trend options:
Our final trend noted from Maison and Objet is the Natural Minerals, the style has come from the increasing need for eco friendly home fashions and is becoming increasing popular. Aesthetics showcasing a rustic, hand crafted and natural look, often paired with pastel and neutral colours to complete the highly stylish design. Here are our picks from this theme:
