Best of the Year Awards from Interior Design Magazine

10 January 2023

It's that time of the year again: Interior Design Magazine have released the winners of the Best of the Year Awards and here at David Village Lighting we couldn't wait to take a look. With over 100 categories, celebrating both innovative products and awe-inspiring projects around the globe, the Best of the Year Awards are truly a collection of the brightest creatives.

So let's dive into some of the winners you will find on our website...

Vibia Plusminus

Category: Architectural Lighting

The Plusminus collection by Vibia was designed with functionality in mind. This ‘less is more’ design features a conductive textile ribbon that carries the electricity to the multiple luminaires that you can click and connect along with the ribbon.

The Vibia Plusminus is a single tool with unlimited potential for transforming our perception of a space. The design fits any space, from an intricate architectural space to a simple area of your home in need of a designer touch.

This sustainable collection by Vibia allows you to create or enhance a space using a completely unique configuration of ribbon along with various luminaire options. Pendants, chandeliers, track lighting or spots provide different levels of diffuse and focused illumination.


Louis Poulsen Moonsetter

Category: Floor Lamps

The Moonsetter is a sculptural floor lamp designed by Anne Boysen, an architect and designer. This can clearly be seen within the simple design, clean lines, and timeless feel of the Moonsetter LED floor lamp.

The design was described as 'based on basic geometric shapes with the circle, square and cylinder merged in a unique and artistic configuration'.

This sculpture takes centre stage in any room and almost acts as a piece of art as its central disc rotates 360 degrees to reveal its contrasting finishes on each side. The disc allows you to interact with the fixture and decide how the light should be reflected in the room, and how the room should be reflected in the mirror surface of the lamp.


Foscarini Tonda: Coming Soon!

Category: Pendant Fixture

Milan-based Ferruccio Laviani toys with the force of gravity in the Tonda pendant light by Foscarini. Evoking the radical design of the 1970s, the lamp suspends its spherical diffuser within a sinuous metal structure. The strong point of the lamp is the perpetual balance of the light blown glass diffuser embraced by the rigid metal.

While being inspired by the Seventies, the Tonda Lamp doesn’t lose its modern personality. The model plays with the concepts of balance and appears with a blown glass round lampshade whose charming hues go from opaline white to a transparent shaded colour.

A brand new release launching in March 2023, the Tonda is a striking feature and conversation piece for any environment.


Flos Almendra

Category: Chandelier

The Almendra is inspired by the almond tree, this pendant light resembles the branches, leaves and almonds, creating a natural aesthetic in any interior.

This nature-inspired design demonstrates the vision that Flos has for the future of lighting design. The Almendra is a unique and innovative light; its connection with nature is not strictly aesthetic based. On the contrary, it underlies a careful design aimed at minimising environmental impact.

These lampshades or "leaves" are also movable, creating a modular system that is unique to you. Each leaf can be turned around 60° so you can decide where you want to direct the light and you can create multiple lighting scenarios with just one pendant.
