Artemide Tolomeo 30th Anniversary


In 1987, exactly 30 years ago, designer and architect Michele De Lucchi created the Tolomeo lamp which has gone onto be one of Artemide’s most popular designs.

 The classic design is outstandingly successful across the world bringing good lighting and good taste together. The Tolomeo has become a timeless classic for Artemide and one that they have continued to develop whilst keeping its quality and design unchanged.


To celebrate 30 years of the Tolomeo, Artemide held a celebration in Hamburg hosted by Michele De Lucchi and the Artemide team. David Village Lighting was invited to attend this exclusive event and below we have some pictures from the celebration evening.

Oluce


Oluce celebrates product anniversary


This year Oluce celebrates special anniversaries for three of its most loved designs, Atollo, Coupé and Lyndon. 


The Atollo was designed by Vico Magistretti and will be celebrating its 40th year in production. The Atollo table lamp has become a favourite over the years and in 1979 it won the Compasso d'Oro award. The table lamp is a simple luminous sculpture where nothing can be removed or added.

The Coupé will be celebrating its firtieth anniversary after originating in 1967 from the creative intuition of Joe Colombo. He initially designed it as a variation of the Spider lamp, with the same base and stem. The Coupé collection has become one of Oluce’s best know families.

The last of the trio is Lyndon which was created in 1977 again by Vico Magistretti. The collection has developed over the years into a vast collection which includes multiple versions for both indoors and outdoors. The suspension version draws on the stylish features of the collection, creating a light which is dedicated to the finest and most elegant spaces.  This year Oluce will also be releasing a historical reproduction of the Lyndon suspension lamp with a precious gold bespoke finish.

Santa & Cole celebrate their 30th anniversary as they re-release the Babel table lamp!


It all began in 1985 for Barcelona based design company Santa & Cole and they have been exploring industrial design ever since. Santa & Cole take their time and effort to ensure that all their products are made to the highest standard and with the user experience in mind.


To celebrate their 30th anniversary Santa & Cole are re-issuing the Babel table lamp which was originally designed in 1971 by Àngel Jové.


Santa & Cole


Still under the rule of late Francoism, urban designer, Jové designed the Babel lamp which refers to an unfinished biblical tower. The lamps perspective is now different with the body perfectly finished and the idea of the tower being complete with a powerful illumination.


Santa & Cole


The Babel table lamp is made from solid alabaster blocks, a material which shows the elements in its veins and helps to create a beautiful illumination.  The process of craftsmanship which brings the lamp to life means that no two are the same yet every single one stands as a lamp that evokes conversation.
