During our visit to the Stockholm Furniture and Lighting Fair we got the chance to see some of the latest designs from the brands that we work with.


Light Years


Released late last year the Suspence collection from Light Years is already a popular design of theirs. The inspiration for the design by GamFratesi's was translating a movement into a physical shape. The pendants design is perceived to be uninterrupted with an infinity diffuser at the bottom which prevents glare and creates an elegant diffused light.


Released at the same time was the Suspence Nomad which is designed to be placed on a horizontal surface for example a floor or staircase. Just like a nomad it can be moved from place to place with ease by lifting the silicone handle at the top.

Orsjo


Konkret is a brand new pendant by Orjso which caught everyone attention at the fair. The series puts Orsjo’s constituent material to the test. Despite the pendants name suggesting a much harder material it is made from ash veneer with a black ombre tint and has fine details such its brass studs which attached the leather straps.


“I wanted to challenge the way we use wood as a material for lights and show how the texture of the material can be changed through its design and how this also creates a natural and warm light,” says designer Jonas Edvard.

Louis Poulsen


This year Louis Poulsen has released one new design and has updated 2 of it most popular collections. At their stand in Stockholm they had all three of the latest releases. Shown below are a few designs from the updated PH collection and the new Above pendant. Keep your eyes peeled as we will soon be revealing the second collection to be updated by Louis Poulsen.

Foscarini


Late last year Foscarini along with the Aplomb Large released the Spokes 2 Large pendant and the New Buds collection. The three designs have already proved popular with their simple and modern design. All three work well to be placed either in the home or in a commercial area.

Secto


Finnish based lighting company Secto made a simple yet stunning display. The company specialises in hand-made wooden design lighting. Their stand showed two new designs, the new Teelo table and a yet unnamed wall light. The Teelo table has a simple yet stylish design which incorporates a sculptural tone and secto’s signature clean lines.


The new wall was designed in response to the clear demand for a light which is not suspended but fixed. The design brings a new character to ceiling and wall fixtures where wood is not a material commonly used.

New Louis Poulsen Designs for 2017


We are excited to announce that Louis Poulsen has released their newest designs. The lighting manufacturer, founded in 1874 has released one new design and added new finishes for two of its most popular designs.

Louis Poulsen


“I have designed a lamp that embodies my mantra: how simple do you dare to design? I would rather remove than add and I always encourage myself to go as simple as possible" says Mads Odgård.


The new design that Louis Poulsen introduces is the Above pendant by Danish designer Mads Odgård.


The Above pendant features a graphic triangle with and arch-shaped opening at the top revealing the cord. The Above creates a downward light and a discreet upward light, resulting in a subdued and pleasant ambience. The beautiful detail of the open top, to which its name refers, conceals the light source to provide the pendant with an ingenious and functional aspect.


Above is manufactured in Denmark and crafted in aluminium with a matt, painted finish. The pendant is available in four sizes and two colours.

PH Collection with Black Metallised Brass


The New Year brings not only new designs but new finishes. Louis Poulsen introduces seven new chrome and black metallised designs to the PH Glass family.


The industrial look of the dark metallised surface offers a bold yet understated look while the mouth-blown opal glass shade soften the overall look of the lamp. The three-layer opal glass, which is glossy on the top and sandblasted matt underneath, provides a soft and uniform light distribution.


The PH collection was first introduced in 1926 with the PH 2/1. The model numbers refer to the shade size and each top shade has a corresponding set of middle and lower shades.


In the original models the 2/2 top shade has a width of 20cm but uses lower shades from the 1/1 model to give it a dynamic outline.  Later in 1928 the PH 3½-2½ was designed which is one of many advanced projects undertaken by Poul Henningsen in the development of his world-famous three shade system.


Click here to view the Louis Poulsen range and keep your eyes peeled as next month we revel which other classic design has beautiful new finishes.
