Luceplan


Product Focus – Luceplan Hope


Released in 2009 the Luceplan Hope is a collection designed by Fancisco Gomez Paz and Paolo Rizzatto.  The collection includes a ceiling, suspension, floor and wall version each with an incredibly light and easy to assemble structure.  


Luceplan


The structure is polished stainless steel with transparent polocarbonate arms and thin polycarbonate Fresnel lenses which multiply the light, creating a pleasant, sparkling atmosphere.


Luceplan


The Suspension is a reinterpretation of a traditional chandelier with sophisticated modern technologies and contemporary materials. The other designs in the collection also have the same contemporary feel with the same reflective flat Fresnel lenses, a result of a brilliant design and manufacturing process.

Louis Poulsen


New A/W Collection from Louis Poulsen


As we approach Autumn/Winter we’re giving you a sneak peak at Louis Poulsen latest releases. The product launch includes 1 brand new design and additional finishes to 3 of Louis Poulsen most popular classics. The releases will be online and available to purchase from September 2017.


Yuh


Louis Poulsen


Yuh is a brand new collection designed by GamFratesi which includes a floor, table and wall version. Yuh is the phonetic form of ‘you’; the letters represents the sound made by the voice to say “you”. 


The shade’s design is light and flexible, being able to be raised, lowered or tilted. One of the essential features of the lamp is for it to be personal, a lamp created just around you. The lamp has a built in LED which provides a high quality of light and a button placed on the upper tube on the table and floor and on the bracket for the wall which acts as a switch and dimmer. Available in black or white.


Doo-Wop


Louis Poulsen


The Doo-wop pendant was originally introduced in 1952 and was a design from close cooperation between the Danish navy buildings department and Louis Poulsen. The pendant was taken out of the range in 1982 then later reintroduced in 2012 in new colours and a brass version.  Now Louis Poulsen is rereleasing the design with two new polished metal variants; Copper and Stainless Steel. The pendant primarily provides a directed downward soft light while the outer main shade provides light up and down while at the same time spreading a soft diffused glow. By the end of the year the blue, green and red finishes will be discontinued. The family will then consist of dark grey, white, brass, copper and steel.


VL38 Black/Brass


Louis Poulsen


The VL38 table was originally designed in the late 1930’s by Vilhelm Lauritzen in partnership with Louis Poulsen for the construction of the Radiohuset building in Copenhagen. In fall 2016 the VL38 was relaunched in white/brass. Now in 2017 Louis Poulsen had released the black edition which has a stronger outline than the original whilst maintaining the loved retro look and the soft, curvy expression of the original design. The design emits a downward directed light with the shade adjustable to optimise the light distribution. The shade is painted white on the inside to ensure a soft comfortable light.


The finial release will be unveiled at the beginning of September so keep an eye on our blog for the latest news!

Foscarini


Product focus – Foscarini Chouchin


 The Foscarini Chouchin is a family of suspension lamp with the original design released in 2011 by French designer Ionna Vautrin. The name is taken from traditional Japanese paper and bamboo lanterns that are used as light bright signs outside restaurants or bars or as lucky charms outside homes.


Foscarini


Their traditional shape has been reinterpreted into a pure contemporary style using blown glass which has been painted to make it completely opaque and glossy. The family includes three shapes, each with its colour: orange for the large version, grey for the small version and green for the elongated one.


 Next in the collection came the Mini version which was released in 2013. This version is available in two shapes and again each with its colour: orange for the large version and green for the elongated one. Similar as with the larger on the lower rim remains white to create a distinguishing graphic mark when the lamp is switched off and an incandescent luminous border when it is on. The Chouchin Mini is designed to be hung alone as a poetic suspended lantern or in a row, group, or even as a collective with larger models.


Foscarini


The third design of the family is the Chouchin reverse. The design has the same three shapes as before but the colours have been inverted; the diffuser is now white while the lower rim is the colour as the shape before. The change in the design is not only the colour but the light as now thanks to the pale glass diffuser it not only directs light down - like the original Chouchin - but diffuses a beautiful glow to its surroundings.

Artemide


An exclusive interview with Giuseppe Scutella


While in Milan visiting Euroluce; the largest lighting exhibition in the world, our very own David Village got the chance to interview designer Giuseppe Scutella. He has designed many masterpieces throughout his career with one of his most recent pieces being the Artemide Pirce.


We took this chance to learn more about the way Giuseppe Scutella creates his beautiful design and what inspires him the most.


Artemide


(David Village and Giuseppe Scutella)


David VillageWhat attracts you to lighting design and do you prefer this to other types of product design? 


Giuseppe Scutella: My preference is for designing lights because for me a light is completely different from other items, say a chair or a library. Why, because the light is alive, it is an object which is alive. In the morning when we wake, we see light coming through the window and you can feel its effect. Light is the only product that can exist without the shape, only through the effect that it produces. This particular for me is always very important not only because we can always turn a light off or turn on, but because it is completely different from all others products. Mario Bellini, a famous designer a few years ago thought that one chair is enough, because a chair is only an object. But for a designer like me each light is completely different. With each light we design we can put inside our emotions which cannot exist in other products. For this reason 80% of my energy in a year will be working on lighting designs and the light which they produce.


David VillageSo you prefer to design lighting rather than objects, even though it can be more technical?


Giuseppe Scutella: Yes. We have the interesting change now from electrics to electronics. It is a bit like when analogue changed to digital. We must change to the new technology with all new designs but it’s very important for me to still keep the emotional effect of the lamp.When I see a lamp I have to feel it. The first thing we see after 9 months inside our mother is the light. The last thing we ever see is the light. For me it is very very important - I have a real passion for the light.


David VillageYour work ranges widely in both form and style. Tell us about some of your favourites.


Giuseppe Scutella: I do not have only one style because I think it’s more important to be free and to use as many styles as possible. I can say, however, that I do not like any designs which are too decorative, for example the Memphis style and any which are overly fussy. I have many passions, for example art, sculpture and photography which I draw on when thinking of a new product. For example the Pirce is a sculpture with the light inside or a light with sculpture on the outside.


Artemide


(Parentesi)


David Village: Are there any other lights that you like?


Giuseppe Scutella: There are many lights which I like but if you ask me which is the best lamp ever produced then I have two favourites which are very very exciting – the perfect lamps. The first one is the Parentesi by Achille Castiglioni and the second is the Eclisse by Vico Magistretti. Achille Castiglioni, I don’t remember when exactly but around 1962, when I was born, he created the perfect light without sculpture. It’s so simple. The Parentesi has a tube which can move along the tensioned wire with a spotlight head. There isn’t another light quite like this because the light is like a sun which can easily be moved. The first time that I saw the lamp I didn’t appreciate the concept but after one second I understood how it is great, how it is amazing and clever. This lamp is more resistant to time for the next 20/30 years - it is evergreen. The second one is Eclisee. It’s like a child with a light. You put your hands in front of your face to shade the light and use a simple movement to alter the amount of light which escapes. These two examples are my favourites.


Artemide


(Eclisee)


David Village: Do the designers and design scene in Milan inspire your work?


Giuseppe Scutella: Absolutely. The first one is Achille Castiglioni but there are many Italian designers I like very much. For example, I think one of the greatest master designers was Burno Munari who wrote about 10 books on design. If you read his book which was written about 15 years ago it defines everything that will happen for the next 50 years. The next designer, who I was l lucky to have known when he was alive, is Angelo Mangiarotti.


Artemide(Angelo Mangiarotti)


He was the designer of the Lesbo table lamp for Artemide and other great pieces. When I was lucky to know him, he was 88 years old. I found that I have never met another person like him with such a fresh intellect as his, with childlike enthusiasm for everything. We worked together on a project to design interior products and this great master at 88 years old still had the mind of a young boy. Every time I spoke to him I wanted to design things, but not like him as that would be impossible, but anyway to try. Another designer I like the drawings of is Enzo Mari with his simple line, but there are many designers who inspire me. I live about 80km from Milan so the first designers that I was fortunate to know were Italian. From other countries I very much like the Bauhaus and even today you see its influence at the Salone Del Mobile Furniture Fair. I don’t know where the original good idea comes from but some designers don’t take risks, they play safe, but others are full of ideas. I want to be where any ideas can come.


Artemide


(Lesbo)


David Village: The Pirce is one of Artemide best selling pendant lights, what inspired its architectural form?


Giuseppe Scutella: Pirce is the very melting pot of my passion. I love very much, for example, sculpture and art, and I love naturally the light. When you see Pirce you can understand that, whether it is on or off it’s like a sculpture. For me it is important to give people many different points of view.  If you walk around the Pirce, every angle is completely different. It isn’t just a shape with light, it’s completely different. When on, it plays with the shadows and light and gives just the right balance.


Artemide


(Pirce)


David Village: Your latest new designs for Artemide are Pan and Babilonia. Pan is much more traditional than the designs we are used to seeing from you. What is the reason for this?


Giuseppe Scutella: Three years ago I stayed in London with my family and we all went to the library where we saw these beautiful green desk lamps. First I thought what a great light, but then with all the latest technology, it is a light which today shouldn’t exist. My idea was to change this design updating and improving it for today, but with respect. I wanted to keep the green colour being soft and best for the eye. This is how pan was created.


Artemide


(Pan)


David Village: Babilonia is contemporary on the verge of futuristic. Can you tell us your idea behind this design?


Giuseppe Scutella: Babilonia uses the power from the led like waves from a central point in space. The waves are lit with light crystallising on their surface and when off completely invisible. I thought of a wave of light that propagates in space, starting from a central core.


Artemide


(Babilonia)


David Village: Thank you for this fascinating interview. We look forward to seeing and understanding all your designs in the future.


Giuseppe Scutella: It’s a pleasure.

Light Years


Product focus – Light Years Caravaggio Collection


The Iconic Caravaggio range by Light Years first began in 2005 with the release of the high gloss lacquer pendant. The Caravaggio collection is by Danish designer Cecilie Manz who studied at the Danish School of Design.


Light Years


Manz wanted to create a light which had a recognisable shape and a modern expression. The simple pendant design consist of a metal shade, a chrome plated suspension and a textile cable adding the finishing touch. The Caravaggio pendant casts out a downwards light, illuminating both the suspension and the cable through the hole at the top of the light.


Light Years


Later in 2008 Light Years released the Caravaggio floor, table and Opal versions. The Opal series combines the original award winning design with a diffused ambient light from its hand-blown opal glass shade.


The Caravaggio table and floor again has kept the same characteristics from the pendant but include a flexible tube which is hidden by the shade enabling it to tilt up to 40 degrees.


Light Years


In 2011 the family welcomed a Matt lacquer finish. The metal shade remains with the chrome plated details and the textile cable.


The classic collection compliments any room in the home with the pendants being perfection for over a kitchen island.

Santa & Cole


Product Focus – Santa & Cole GT Collection


Since the early 90’s Santa & Cole have championed the use of ribbon shades in their collections. The GT5 was the first in the GT collection and was then an alternative to the use of continuous textile, methacrylate and cardboard shades.


Santa & Cole


It was later followed by the GT6 and then the Larger GT7, GT1000 and GT1500 which were designed to be used in large public venues. The colourful GT family is one that can change its scale without losing the essence of its design.


Santa & Cole


Perfect for home settings the GT5 and GT6 are two ribbon shade pendants that create a beautiful atmosphere in a room while being merely there in size compared to the larger GT7.


The GT Collection is available in a range of colour including Natural, Black and Red-amber with the larger sizes also available in Raw Terracotta, Raw Mustard and Raw Green.

Fabbian


Product focus – Fabbian Giro


The Fabbian Giro was designed in 2014 by Formfjord; a Berlin-based design studio. The designers aim was to create a light which was sufficiently large yet at the same time open, lightweight and airy. The solution was delicate thin steel rings as the main element of the light connected together to create a pendant that is both sophisticated and lightweight. 


Fabbian


The pendant collection includes two sizes which both are made from 32 rings each of varying diameters which are joined together to form a spherical shape. The light is available in polished white or anthracite grey and the light source and be installed as desired in any of the rings of the correct size so that the light can be directed where necessary.

Moooi


New Moooi T Lamp


The latest floor lamp released by Moooi is the T-Lamp, designed by the renowned Marcel Wanders. Based on the concepts of movement, grace and energy the T Lamp reminds us of the fluidity and light motion of Alexander Calder's kinetic mobiles.


Moooi


The floor lamp is tall and slender and has found the perfect equilibrium with it moving and rotating harmoniously without ever losing balance. Strongly rooted to the ground the T Lamp gracefully rotates in space giving a subtly diffused light where needed. In addition the floor lamp is dimmable thus allowing you to create the perfect atmosphere with your desired light intensity. The lamps flexibility makes it perfect for over a sofa, table or simply placed in the corner of a room.

Flos


Five tables by Flos


For over 50 years Flos have been leaders in the lighting industry and have created many design classics. Below we have picked out five of the most popular and well loved table lights by Flos.


IC


Flos


The IC table was designed in 2014 by Cypriot-born designer Michael Anastassiades. The design explores balance and also includes wall lights, ceiling pendants and ceiling mounted lights. The light is formed from a sphere which is perfectly balanced on the edge of a rod. Designer Michael Anastassiades was spinning a set of spheres, moving them around on his arms and edge of his fingers, as he got mesmerized by the magic of his skill, suddenly the spheres look perfectly still. He wanted to capture that exact moment.


Miss K


Flos


The Miss K is an ultra-contemporary style table lamp which provides a beautiful diffused light. The two transparent injection-moulded diffusers which are placed within each other are the lamps unique feature. The Miss K lamp has an in-line dimmer on the transparent cord and is available in 4 finishes; black, red, silver or soft.


K-Tribe


Flos


The K-Tribe is a follow on from the original Miss K table. The design was released in 2007 by Philippe Starck and features a square base with a large size shade which is perfect for area where a larger lamp is required. The light features a dimmer switch on the cord perfect for creating a beautiful ambient light in any room.


Tatou


Flos


Designed by Patricia Urquiola in 2012 the Flos Tatou table is a dome styled shade which lets the light filter out from the inside. Tatou is French for armadillo: the mammal famous for its structure made up of plates of bone covered with a protective layer of horn. The tatou table is part of a family which also includes a floor and suspension version in either white, black or orche.


Spun Light


Flos


The essence of the Spun Light designed by Sebastian Wrong in 2003 is simplicity. The table lamp is made from modern technology whilst embracing craftsmanship.  The table is machined from aluminium and made to a high specification. “The lights are bold and sleek using colour and form to create a contemporary classic.” Sebastian Wrong.

Louis Poulsen


Product Feature – Louis Poulsen Collage


The Collage 600 pendant was designed in 2005 by Louise Campbell which was later joined by a scaled down version, the Collage 450 in 2009. The Louis Poulsen Collage is a delicate 3 layer laser cut acrylic pendant which has been created to eliminate any unpleasant glare from the light source.  Campbell’s aim with the Collage pendant was to imitate daylight as she has always been preoccupied with daylight in her work with lighting.


Louis Poulsen


"The most obvious contrast between daylight and artificial light is that nature only has one light source, and you never look directly into it. Our perception of light is based on countless natural layers which filter and reflect the light." Louise Campbell


Louis Poulsen


The patterns differ between the shades resulting in different perceptions of light and shadows depending on the viewing angle. The Collage pendant gives out a soft and comfortable light, suitable for a range of areas such as over a dinning table or in a lounge or sitting area.

A key focus of the Ambit Rail is its fluidity with all joints and cable hidden and the supporting wire remarkably thin.


Moooi Perch collection


Moooi


It’s too hard to pick just one item from the new Moooi Perch collection so we’ve picked it all. With perch, designer Umut Yamac has designed a collection which encaptures the beauty of an exotic bird blissfully perched upon a tree. The collection is timeless, created with paper and brass detailing. The beautiful simplicity of the collection means you can either fill the room with a forest or pick just one as a statement piece.

The new Ceramic collection by Anglepoise includes a pendant, a cluster, a table lamp and a wall lamp which all exude simplicity and elegance.  The collection features a glossy bone china shade with chrome plated fittings and a grey fabric cable. Formed from the purest bone china, the white glossy shade turns translucent when on radiating a soft, ambient light around the room. 


Brokis Knot


Brokis


The Knot is a statement collection which includes 4 pendants each with different shaped mouth blown glass shades. The beautiful design combines coarse natural fibres with smooth, transparent blown glass and a robust cord with seemingly pulls the bottom of the glass inwards. The collection creates an impressive display whether hung along or in a group.


Bocci 84 Series


Bocci


Despite not officially being available until September we couldn’t wait to get it online to show off to you. The new Bocci 84 is collection which has many compositions and at the bottom of each cable has a white glass moil which is captured inside a fine copper mesh basket and then plunged into hot clear glass creating the shade. Sometimes the copper mesh basket folds and crinkles, adding specificity to each piece.


Axo Orchid Collection


AXO


The latest collection by Axo is Orchid which includes wall, ceiling, suspension and floor lamps which are available in either white or sand. Austrian designer Rainer Mutsch designed the collection with two separate yet complementary souls, one outer that of nature with its flower shaped diffuser and the other which is more hidden, a high tech integral LED.


Kartell Aledin


kartell


The new Aledin table by Kartell includes two different styles, Tec and Dec. The Aledin Tec has a flat head which gives out an adjustable direct light thanks to the movement of the diffuser head.

Product Focus - &Tradition Formakami


“In typical Jaime Hayon style, these Paper Lanterns challenge convention,” notes &tradition Brand Manager Martin Kornbek Hansen.


&Tradition


Designed in 2015 by Jamie Hayon, the &Tradition Formakami is a beautiful handmade rice paper pendant which is available in three styles.


Dating back centuries, paper lanterns have featured in Asia amongst both the privileged and the poor where different colours, shapes and sizes connote different meanings. The series includes three sizes with ivory white rice paper and black stained oak accents with each only weighing 1 kilo helping them to hang delicately in any indoor setting. 


Designer Hayon has taken cultural inspiration for the Formakami collection yet deviated from formalities by creating the lanterns all in white.


&Tradition


“Lamps play such an important role in people’s lives,” explains Hayon. “For some cultures, they chase away the darkness by bringing hope. I’ve tried to keep this emotional angle about light – in a lamp that also appears light. By making the bottom part of the lamp open, the idea is to bring even more illumination to people everywhere in the world.”

Resident has recently released 2 new collections and a new finish to their well loved Parison Pendant collection. Below we have all you need to know about the new arrivals!


Bloom Pendant


Resident


The beautiful new Bloom Pendant is inspired by the gentle flow of paper lanterns. When lit the pendant has a glorious warm glow which is the result of transparency and light. The light is created with two contrasting materials; a finely perforated mesh core and frosted blown glass. When combined, they create a soft textured focus onto the inside of the shade. At the same time a clear pool of light is projected downwards creating a distinct light which when either on or off is a versatile unobtrusive light.

Gubi


Featured – Gubi Multi-lite


The Gubi Multi-lite was first designed in 1972 when Louis Weisdorf designed a light which was an exception to his usual designs, creating a light which used multiple repeating elements. 


Gubi


Louis Weisdorf was born in 1932 and after graduating from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen in 1954 he went on to work on everything from graphics, interior and industrial design and recreational areas. Louis Weisdorf described his career as ‘specialises in versatility’ which sums up his long, notable career of a multi-designer. In the late 1960’s Weisdorf set up his own design studio in Copenhagen sharing it with architect and younger brother of Verner Panton, Ole Panton. Here he designed for clients both nationally and internationally.


Gubi


The Multi-Lite collection embraces the golden era of Danish design with its characteristic shape of two opposing outside mobile shades which add a wide range of lighting values in any room. By individually rotating the shades, the Multi-Lite pendant can be transformed into multiple combinations where the light can be directed upwards, downwards or exude an asymmetrical art light.


The light consist of two cylindrical shapes which lay the foundations and a metal ring which anchors the two quarter-spherical shades creating the iconic design.
