Foscarini


New Foscarini Dolmen


A new year brings new designs and the first of many from Foscarini is the Dolmen collection.


Foscarini


The design is one of Foscarini most iconic, originally designed by Ferruccio Laviani in the mid-Nineties. The collection has been reworked to adapt to the new opportunities offered by LED technology.


The collection includes a suspension and floor version both using a dimmable LED source which provides a warm uniform light and allows a slimmer aesthetic.


The finishes transform its personality and suggest different feelings and settings; matt orange with an industrial tone or a matt brushed aluminium for hightech inspiration, or a warm bronze colour.


Foscarini


The Floor lamp is designed to be rested against a wall and give out a diffused and reflected light. The suspension hangs gracefully giving both a direct and indirect light.


Both the floor and suspension versions are made from a laser-cut sheet of aluminium which is bent using a pressure bending machine and hand finished. The aluminium is anodised and subsequently liquid coated with transparent varnish or coloured paint. The collection is available aluminium, orange or bronze.

Foscarini


New finishes to the Foscarini collections


Tuareg


Foscarini


The existing Tuareg floor collection designed in 2013 now includes a matt white finish. Based on the architecture of archaic cultures, the Tuareg is a lamp with a powerful image like a work of land art in an interior landscape.


The structure is composed of aluminium tubing which creates a vivid and dynamic three dimensional form. The new matt white finish joins the original matt orange and glossy black.

Le Soleil


Foscarini


A sphere composed of irregular bands, the Le Soleil pendant is large in size but visually light. When on, thanks to the bands, the light flows outward like sunbeams glimpsing through a cloud. 


The Le soleil is now available with an integrated LED which creates a decorative and illuminating effect at the same time as a beam of light being projected downwards.


The Le Soleil is now available in an original copper and bronze finish that brings a new personality, enhancing the warm, natural glow of the lamp.

Spokes


Foscarini


The Spokes lamp is based on an observation of the spokes of a bicycle wheel, generating an object of great iconic force. Today the Spokes range now includes metallised finishes making the spokes seem even more slender and precious. The collection is now available in an elegant graphite and a warm copper tone which transform the presence of Spokes and opens up a world of decor possibilities.

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.

Foscarini


Featured – Foscarini Birdie


The Birdie collection by Foscarini is a family of lamps which is inspired by the poetic image of a bird on a branch.


Although they are all recognisably part of the birdie collection, each version of the birdie lamp is a design in its own right. The collection includes suspension, wall, floor and table options and is available in White, Grey, Amaranth or Orange.


Foscarini


Wall


The Birdie wall model expands the possibility of creating combination of the various versions. It’s subtle design and natural inspiration allows the wall version to blend in easily with the most unlikely of settings creating a different looks for each space.


Foscarini


Suspension


The Birdie suspension is suspended in the air with its straightforward and harmonious diffuser. Multiple suspension versions are also available. With either 3,6 or 9 shades the suspension has the same number of white finish arms which act almost like branches of a tree to support the diffusers. Thanks to the additional cable set, the Birdie pendant can be made to suit your room whatever the ceiling height and is available in a ceiling version should no drop be required.


Foscarini


Table


The Birdie table has a slim stem which represent the trunk of a tree. The shade is a reinterpretation of the classic reading lamp while the branch beckons your touch, turning it on or off. These elements work together to give life to a friendly lamp which combines a smooth and familiar structure with a bold character. The Birdie come in two sizes ensuring whether placed in the living room, on a desk or on a bedside table the lamp fits in naturally in the space and add a stylish touch to everyday life.


Foscarini


Floor


The Birdie floor has a similar design to the table with a long slim stem and a classic shade with a branch like detail. The Birdie floor stands at 150cm and is perfect to be used to light a area for example where you sew or read.

Wastberg


Wästberg’s latest releases


Back in the summer we gave you an exclusive look at some of Wästberg’s eagerly anticipated designs. We are excited to announce that they’re now available online!


The Studioilse Collection


Wastberg


The studioilse Collection is designed by Ilse Crawford and includes a floor, wall and suspension version as well as two table designs. The w084 studioilse lamp uses materials that carry clear messages: iron because of its feelings of stability, reliability and trust; wood because of its warmth and life, and mineral plastic because of its intimate glow, as well as its tactility.


The w124 Lindvall Table


Wastberg


Designed by Jonas Lindvall the Lindvall family of lights derives from experimenting with the influence that different materials have on the emotional quality of the light they reflect. For example copper brings beautiful, deep warmth to the light. The lamp was designed to direct the light downwards, but also to help create ambiance in a room.


The W161 Marfa Table


Wastberg


For their architectural project, the inde/jacobs gallery building in Marfa Texas, Claesson Koivisto Rune in collaboration with Wästberg designed a task light for Mr Vilis Inde’s gallery desk.  The w161 marfa Lamp is an LED task light made out of one piece of anodized or lacquered aluminium, folded three times. When seen from the side, the lamp is merely a thin line. Minimal expression. Maximum efficiency in material, production, light and energy consumption.


The w154 Pal Table


Wastberg


Pal w154 is the essence of modern task lighting: an engineered but graceful construction that sets its focus on bringing high quality LED light. The all metal structure with its slim profiles and integrated mechanics allows for a smooth and easy movement. Incorporated is an 8W high-end warm LED with intelligent heat dissipation and light diffusion.


The w111 Van Severen Table


Wastberg


Wästberg has known designer Maarten Van Severen for years. After his death in 2005 through the relationship with Maarten’s family and Magnus Wästberg, they suggested the revival of one of Maarten’s most brilliant products – the U-line lamp – that had gone out of production with its previous manufacturer. With much improved technical performance and equipped with LED’s it is now re-named Van Severen w111.


The w163 lampyre Table


Wastberg


The w163 lampyre is designed by Inga Sempé and is made of two opaline glass parts, creating a calming light from base to top. Lampyre is the french name for glow-worm, which can be linked to the very natural aspect of this lamp. The w163 lampyre comes in two sizes and the light can be adjusted, perfect to enlighten any space with softness.


The w082 irvine Table


Wastberg


Designed by James Irvine the theme of the lamp is one of those design projects that always has to measure itself with great masterpieces from the past. The lamp can be rotated round and the arm extended. The lamp can also be made dimmable so that you can change the light intensity dependant upon what room it is situated in.


The Nendo Collection


Wastberg


Designed by Nendo the light fixtures are made by a system of parts. The height of the light can be easily changed by adding and rearranging the components. By attaching the wire unit to the shade, it becomes a pendant lamp and by adding a longer post makes it a floor lamp. The shade is available in three different shapes: a cone, a sphere and a cylinder. A selection of accessories - a table, a bowl and a bird-cage - made of the lamp’s standard components, are also available.

Moooi


Featured – Moooi Random


Moooi introduced the Random Collection designed by Bertjan Pot in 2002 and it has been a best seller since the beginning.


The lamp gives a beautiful feeling of simplicity with its soft, light and clean contemporary feel.


Moooi


The production process involves resin drained yarn which is randomly coiled around an inflatable beach ball creating a translucent 3D fabric. The beach ball is then deflated and removed via the round opening creating the end result of a soft, magic shade.


The Random comes in 3 pendant sizes and a floor version which are available in black or white and with either a halogen light source or with an integrated LED.

Davide Groppi - Fosbury the best lighting for “AZ Award 2016”

14 September 2016 Permalink

Davide Groppi


As Davide Groppi collects an AZ Award for the Fosbury light we look back at where it all began for him.


‘The Fosbury light is a luminaire that is a hybrid between a floor and suspension in a special composition inspired by the aerial sculptures of the American sculptor Alexander Calder.’


Davide Groppi


It all started for Davide Groppi in a small laboratory in the Italian town of Piacenza during the late 1980’s. For Davide simplicity, weightlessness, emotion and creative invention are the fundamental components of each lamp or project.


Over the years he has developed various products and held shows in collaboration with companies specialising in design such as De Padova and Christofle. Throughout his career Davide Groppi has worked with a faithful group of collaborators who share his vision and help to bring his ideas to life.


Davide Groppi’s excellence has been recognised by the press and he has received prestigious awards for his lighting creations, including the Edida Award in 2011, the Design Plus Award in 2014 as well as two at the 23rd edition of the ADI Compasso d’Oro Awards and the ADI Compasso d’Oro Mention of Honour upon the rechargeable lamp Tetatet in 2016.

Fabbian – New Aérostats on the scene

22 August 2016 Permalink

Fabbian


 Fabbian have recently added two new editions to their Aérostat collection. The collection of decorative lamps which are made out of shiny white blown glass is by the young designer, Guillaume Delvigne. The inspiration for the collection came from the principle of the Aerostat and to make an object lighter than air. With this concept, Delvigne designed the lamp as a luminous object which is so light it can lift itself off the ground.
