Foscarini


NEW IN


We are happy to announce that the long awaited latest designs from Foscarini are now available online!


The Aplomb Large


Foscarini


The Aplomb Large is a new lamp made from concrete but with a different shape from the original. The new design is not just larger in size but also fitted with a built in LED light source which is placed into the body of the lamp casting a wide beam of light onto the surface below.


The Aplomb Large is made by Italian experts which faced a challenge to obtain a slim thickness, a lightweight shape and a textured surface which is still pleasant to touch.  This was all achieved by their profound knowledge of the raw material which allowed them to create the perfect mix which is fluid when poured into the cast. 


The Aplomb Large is available in three different colours white, grey and brown made by pigments which are directly added to the material blend.  The Aplomb Large is perfect for over a table, a kitchen island or placed in a repeated linear composition.


The Spokes 2 Large


Foscarini


The Spokes 2 Large is a larger version of the original Spokes 2 suspension. The design draws inspiration from the spokes of a bicycle wheel, which contain the light within while at the same time allowing light to filter out. The built in LED makes it possible to light the floor or surface underneath while creating magical shadows on the walls and ceiling.  


The lamp suits various settings such as in both residential and commercial areas perfect placed in the middle of the room or with the original version to create a fascinating lighting composition. The Spoke 2 Large has a 70cm diameter and is available in either white or yellow.


Buds Collection


Foscarini


The Buds collection of table, floor and suspension lamps was designed in 1990 by Rodolfo Dordoni, an architect whose work ranges across furnishings, lamp design and many more. The lamps were made in brightly coloured blown glass, named after the natural elements: Fruits, Blossom and Buds. Today the Buds have been restyled again to interpret the contemporary and sophisticated focus on materials. The beauty of the design remains the blown glass with a five-layer hand-crafted process. The new range of colours includes cold brown, cold grey, bamboo green and white and with a straw-yellow internal finish the lamp is warm when the lamp is on and cold when off.

New - Muuto Framed

17 August 2016 Permalink

Muuto


Here at David Village we don’t only specialise in lighting, we love furniture and accessorise too! So we introduce to you the new Muuto Framed Mirror collection designed by Anderssen & Voll.


Muuto


The Framed collection is a series of mirrors with coloured glass in two sizes and three colour options; Taupe, Rose and Grey. The coloured glass challenges the way a classic mirror is placed within an interior and adds dimension to the room. The mirrors can be hung on their own or in group, creating an art-like installation on a wall.


The mirror’s formation begins when a steel plate is worked through three rounds to create the desired shape, the surface is then powder lacquered using a highly durable lacquer. Lastly the mirror glass is gently placed creating the little gap between the mirror’s frame and the glass.


Muuto


The designers of the Framed Mirror series, Anderssen & Voll expressed “We wanted to create a mirror that was more than merely a reflective surface. FRAMED is a new perspective to the classic framed mirror; it is a decorative design piece that leads your thoughts to installation art. It adds not only the functionality of a mirror to your home, but with its depth, organic shape and tone-in-tone colour, it is almost perceived as an art object on the wall. The FRAMED mirror can hang beautifully on your walls alone or combined with other sizes and colours.”

Porta Romana – Celebrating the products that shaped it!

16 August 2016 Permalink

Porta Romana


Porta Romana began life in 1988 in a tiny London workshop. From the beginning, the ambition was to create beautiful and inspiring pieces that would be loved. We take a look at some of Porta Romana most iconic designs.


Manhattan


Porta Romana


The Manhatton lamp was introduced to the collection in 2000 by Francis Russel. It remains as one of his favourite and most successful pieces thought to be because of the simple yet skilful design. The design is still at the forefront of the collection and is seen as a design classic.


Flynn Caged Stairwell Lantern


Porta Romana


The Flynn Stairwell Lantern has a striking edge. Each made from beaten lengths of forged steel and scarred with hammer marks its dramatic vertical lines make it perfect for stairwells and high ceiling spaces. The finish can be personalised to suit any space such as tones of bronze, silver and gold.


Mushroom Mirror


Porta Romana


The Mushroom Mirror is designed with a playful feel crafted with hand cut metal mushrooms dancing around the edge. The textured and painted steel frame creates an interest in the finish and the style is reminiscent of a traditional French mirror from the 1950’s. Launched in the enchanted forest collection it became an instant favourite for all. The frame takes 15 hours to craft and that’s only the beginning. Once formed the decorative process of applying the Mayan Gold Finish can begin. After 15 different processes, 16 diverse paintbrushes and three days of hard work the Mushroom Mirror is complete and destined for the most beautiful of interiors.


Duck Feet


Porta Romana


Probably the most identifiable design of Porta Romana’s collection is the Duck Feet Table Lamp. The inspiration for the lamp came from two sources, a surrealist exhibition showing the Oppenheim crane leg table shortly followed by the sighting of a rare fur table lamp. The two combined gave birth to the idea of the duck lamp and later a visit to a couture show finished the detail with an ostrich feather dress. 


Sputnik Ceiling


Porta Romana


The sputnik Chandelier was designed by Gareth Devonald Smith as part of his capsule collection in 2013. The curves of the design feature the sculptural doodle hallmark of Smith and has a simple yet ingeniously engineered design. The design is finished with seven irregular sized and shaped bronze and brass lampshades.


Baobab


Porta Romana


This beautiful glazed ceramic piece was inspired by a stroll along a deserted Caribbean beach and the discovery of a Bajan seedpod. Later the seed was drawn and became the shape of the Baobab lamp. Every lamp is formed by hand and the alchemy of firing means that no two will ever be the same.


Man 3 Floor Lamp


Porta Romana


The Man 3 Floor is a reminiscent piece of a Giacometti sculpture. The lamp was deigned in 2006 as part of the Man and Women series and like the other designs in the series the floor lamp has a minimalist style. The Mad 3 is often used to great effect in a repeat, standing like sentinels in an open space or corridor. The Man 3 is finished by hand in a bronzed effect.

New Additions to the Caravaggio Family!

12 August 2016 Permalink

Light Years


Following on from designer Cecilie Manz’ iconic Caravaggio series we introduce to you the Caravaggio Read collection.


Light Years


Cecilie Manz has created a whole new collection of Caravaggio lamps with functional, directional light.  The Caravaggio Read lamps stay in keeping with the classic shade design which is installed on a flexible tube making it possible to tilt the shade and rotate the lamp 260 degrees.


Light Years


Controlling the intensity of light is easy as the lamps are fitted with a three level touch control dimmer, situated on the stand. The bases small diameter means it is easy to position the lamp, for example the table lamp could stand in the window frame or on a shelf and the floor lamp could be pulled all the way to the sofa, providing a more intimate light exactly where you need it.


 The Caravaggio Read collection is available in White, Light grey and Black matt lacquering and hand-blown semi-transparent glass. The metal shade gives a soft and targeted light, while the opal shade sends out a warm and diffused light.

&Tradition New In, Passepartout!

9 August 2016 Permalink

&Tradition


&Traditions latest design sees a collaboration with designer Jamie Hayon creating the versatile and decorate lamp; Passepartout.


&Tradition


The 2016 Design incorporates its French translation as it acts like a frame where its ambient light source beautifully enhances the visual appeal of whatever it is illuminating. Hayon often questioned the idea of how you can illuminate a space with a lamp without it being too anonymous or too imposing. “The answer came from the picture frame. The picture is the focus and the frame is there to guide your eyes to it. Of course, with a lamp you have light, without it you have darkness. So the lamp is actually the unsung hero that brings any setting to life.”


&Tradition


You can fit the Passepartout Lamps on the wall or ceiling, throughout the entire home they will never look out of place. The lamp is available in three different shapes and finishes; Satin Polished Brass, Polished Aluminium or Matt White. The variation of shades and finishes means that you can create unique clusters thus creating a personalised look in any space. The Passepartout range uses built-in LED technology that ensures an energy-efficient high quality light emission which provides an illumination that is soft and soothing.


&Tradition


According to &tradition’s Brand Director Martin Kornbek Hansen,“With the Passepartout Lamps, we have combined decorative and technical lighting private and architectural buildings.”

Featured – Vibia Mayfair

5 August 2016 Permalink

Vibia


 Designed by Diego Fortunato the Vibia Mayfair lamp has an elegant and timeless design yet hides a revolutionary past.


“I wanted to design a product with a historical reference because people, in these times of uncertainty, love to have some reference of the past.” Diego Fortunato


Vibia


Fortunato looked for inspiration in the classic billiard style lamp which was used to illuminate 18th Century lounges and games rooms. The sophisticated style of the lamp inspired him to create a versatile design which would be able to be placed anywhere, such as in the home or office.


Vibia


 The Vibia Mayfair is produced with the latest LED lighting which is made of two layers. One layer provides a perfectly even light by reflecting off the inside of the shade and the other, a warmer indirect up-light.This neutral design approach is complemented by a range of matte and gloss finishes and comes in a variation of table, floor and pendant lamps.

Fontana Arte – Collections to admire

29 July 2016 Permalink

Fontana Arte


Fontana Arte has been busy collaborating with designers creating new iconic lamps including lights with the latest technology. Here we have some of Fontana Arte latest designs which are available to purchase from our website.


Fontana Arte


The Flex


Designed by Canadian-American industrial designerKarim Rashid, the flex light is an iconic minimal wall lamp. The lamp delivers its design by producing light both upwards and downwards through its die-cast aluminium body.  The lamp can be painted matt in white, black, pink or blue.


Fontana Arte


The Milano


Fontana Arte pays homage to Milan, the city of is origins through this exclusive table lamp. The Milano is designed by Carlo Colombo and is made from Carrara statue marble; the finest and most valuable marble, an all time favourite with designers for their creations. The lamp is fitted with an LED board which glows, enhancing the veins of the marble. The Milano is a limited edition design with just 100 piece available worldwide each with a certificate of authenticity.


Fontana Arte


The Pinecone Collection


The Pinecone collection is designed by Paola Navone and includes a pendant and table lamp. The shade is a blown glass diffuser and is available in a glossy transparent or milky white acid-etched version. The diffuser is made using the ancient caged blown glass technique formed when the glass maker blows a molten glass blob into a metal cage. This technique contains the blobs natural expansion and generates the impression of tension as its struggles to free itself from the cage. The lighting fixture makes a striking impact either switched on or off.


Fontana Arte


Fontana Arte


The Volée Collection


The Volée Collection is formed of a floor, table and wall light all created with the latest-generation LED technology. The light is operated by a simple swipe of the hand beneath the head which activates the senor that turns the light both on and off, requiring no physical contact. There is also a fitted touch sensor which is placed over the head of the lamp which allows four levels of light intensity to be controlled. The lamp is made from aluminium with die-cast aluminium joints and with a hidden spring the user can direct the light with one fluid motion. The table version can be fitted with a USB port for charging and the time out system means the lamp automatically turns off after 5hours of operation.

New In From Flos Lighting

21 July 2016 Permalink

Flos


Flos is forever providing us with innovative and original lights and their latest releases are no different.


Captain Flint Floor Lamp


Flos


The Captain Flint Floor Lamp was designed by Michael Anastassiades in 2015 who wanted to create a lamp with a dual purpose. The lamp provides an adjustable direct light which can be rotated to create the feel of a table lamp, perfect for reading. The steam and spinning cone shade is finished in either painted steel or brushed brass and with either a black or white marble base.  The lamp is fitted with a dimmer switch making creating ambience in a room easy.


Flos Extra T Table Lamp


Flos


Another light designed by Michael Anastassiades is the Flos Extra T Table Light. The light incorporates both a glowing light sphere and a rectangular back base as Anastassiades wanted to encapture the frozen moment of the sphere about to roll off the edge of the table. The lamp creates a diffused light with a painted or anodized aluminium body and hand-blown opal glass diffuser.


Taccia Small Table


Flos


The original Taccia table was designed in 1962 by Achille and Pier Giancomo Castiglioni. Now in 2016 it has been re-invented in a new smaller size with the latest LED technology. The lamp provides both indirect and reflected light which illuminates a living space perfectly. The reflector is painted aluminium with gloss on the inside and matt white on the outside. The lamp body is available is either black, anodised silver, anodised violet or anodised bronze.


Shade Ceiling Lamp


Flos


The Shade Floor/Suspension light redefines the idea of the lampshade having a fixed perspective. The Shade offers a warm ambient light with a feel of surrealism. The feel of the floating shade is made by avoiding the conventional way of using mains power from the ceiling and instead uses an LED floor fitting to shine an upward light into the white paper shade, with invisible wires attached to both the ceiling and the black aluminium floor light source.

Lampe Gras and a Collection to rave about – MANTIS

8 July 2016 Permalink

Lampe Gras


Designer Bernard Schottlander was born in 1924 in Mainz, Germany and in 1939 he moved to England. After learning to weld whilst serving with the British Army in India, Schottlander began a successful career in the design industry. In the late 1950’s he established a workshop in north London and soon after in 1951 Schottlander created the ‘MANTIS’ series of lamps. 


Lampe Gras


Movement is intrinsic to the collection with a clever system of counterweights combined with strong and flexible metals bars. The shade is unique. Like an acrobat suspended mid-air, it is made from aluminium using spinning and chasing techniques that are part of the metalworker’s inventory of skills. Schottlander has brought his sculptors eye to create a helical movement in which the symmetrical and asymmetrical are in opposition.


Lampe Gras


The Mantis collection is formed of table, floor, wall and ceiling Lamps.


Lampe Gras


The Lampe Gras Mantis collection is available to order on our website by clicking here!
