New In – Vibia North

19 September 2016 Permalink


Vibia’s newest collection, North, is now available and we’ve added the popular design to our website!


   5600                                                       5630                                                   5670

The Vibia North Collection is designed by Arik Levy and is a family of floor, wall and ceiling lamps. The family is available in four tones of lacquered matt: White, Cream, Blue and Graphite and all feature an LED light source.

The North wall lamp is fixed by a base which is then separated from the light source to offer a wide lighting effect.

The North floor lamp is an elegant, adaptable design which makes it possible to direct light exactly where you want it. Several arms are positioned to protrude from the base providing different angles of light.

The North pendant lamps are composed of traditional shades suspended from a slim carbon fibre rod structure. Vibia offers six models of pendant lamps in different sizes making it suitable for residential spaces just as much as for public or commercial use.

Flos’s Most loved – The Glo-ball

7 September 2016 Permalink


The Flos Glo-ball collection was designed by Jasper Morrison in 1998, the simple concept behind the Glo-ball family is to obtain the maximum diffusion of light which is achieved by the use of hand-blown, etched white opaline glass.


The Lamp is formed from a globe which appears flattened and produces the radiant calm of a full moon. The Glo-Ball comes in a pendant and wall version as well as unstemmed and stemmed table and floor versions; when fitted with a halogen or compatible LED bulb they are dimmable.

The Glo Ball ceiling is attached via a large internal threaded ring so removing it for cleaning or to change the bulb is easy.

The design of the Glo-Balls means they always look beautiful when lit, providing a clean, soft white light. They look good either on their own or when clustered together.

Flos - A light 40 years in the making

5 March 2015 Permalink

A new addition to a line of designs which first originated in 1972, originally called the Parentesi lamp. This light was changed and developed throughout the decades resulting in the new – “OK” release, where so much has changed.

new Flos OK lamp


Flos Parentesi lamp design

The fundamental difference between the OK and Parentesi lamps is that technologies have changed and a traditional bulb is no longer needed to illuminate a space. The new OK model uses modern LEDs to light up the flat, adjustable face of the lamp. This is not only brighter but also more energy efficient, the design of the body also allows flexible positioning of the light source, with it’s pivoting head and adjustable length. Because the traditional bulb no longer has an effect on how a lamp is designed to look, the Parentesi lamp still continued to sell until 2012 as people were drawn to the beauty and timelessness of a bulb. Now technology has vastly advanced so designers can create near enough anything they like, as they know the light source can simply be adapted, or even a new one created all together for the sake of moving further.

Flos Parentesi original lamp

Konstantin Grcic the designer of the original Parentesi lamp thought of the new technologies advancing the lighting industry:“Designing a lamp is no longer limited to working around a given bulb. Today, it means designing the actual bulb or light source. This challenged me to think of Parentesi, a lamp that celebrated the traditional bulb in the most effective and beautiful way. Would it be possible to rethink the Parentesi lamp once more and pass the Manzù-Castiglioni torch on to the future?” 

Flos new ok lamps

This was the product of his musings on modern technology; the new lamp is now called OK and comes in white, black, chrome and yellow. Available now online.

New addition to the Aplomb range!

4 February 2015 Permalink

The ever increasing popularity of concrete lighting has seen Foscarini add to the range of Aplomb lamps. The suspension Aplomb has seen an incredible demand because of its iconic style.Now Foscarini has created a matching wall light which compliments the existing pendant very well, available in three colours: white, grey and brown. They are now also available in an LED light source.

Foscarini Aplomb wall lamps

The concrete shade moulds around the diffuser inside to create a single fitment, achieving a wider range of light being diffused upwards onto walls and ceiling above. This wide diffusion creates a soft and relaxing atmosphere as the indirect light illuminates the scene without dazzling those within the space. A smaller and more delicate light is also cast downwards creating a harmonious contrast between the two, having a sophisticated effect upon the room it is situated.

Foscarini Tuareg by Ferruccio Laviani

8 August 2014 Permalink

The Tuareg was designed for Foscarini by Ferruccio Laviani. Tuareg is composed of three dimensional aluminium tubes into which LED light sources have been incorporated. The LEDs can be switched on and off separately and adjusted 350 degrees in order to vary the light effect and the lamp's possible uses. Integrated touch switches and the system used to hide the power cables within tubular elements ensure that the design is as minimalistic as possible.The bold sculptural design of the Tuareg makes it an ideal centrepiece for both large commercial and domestic spaces. The structure is made of extruded aluminium coated with liquid paint and is available in a choice of two finishes. The bright orange finish is inspired by the bright colours of industrial anti-rust paints and the black chrome finish is intended to evoke the lustre of precious metals.

RHS Tatton Park 2014 - One Week To Go!

15 July 2014 Permalink

Just over a week to go until RHS Tatton Park 2014! The energy efficient LED lighting that we have supplied has been delivered and the garden is looking great! We can’t wait to see it finished. Ian Price and his team at Ian Price landscape and garden design have drawn inspiration from the symbols for the Greek elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water. The shapes of these symbols have been abstracted to form the outline of the spaces. Each element is represented directly or symbolised within the space.Fire is represented through the flame textured granite of the patio and the charred timber wall around the back of the garden. Earth is represented by eco friendly compost which absorbs CO2. The triangular pool in the centre of the garden represents the element of Water, whilst a triangular sail shade represents Air. The plants themselves will consist mainly of grasses and light foliage which reflect the colour theme of the elemental symbols.Energy efficient LED lighting has been used throughout the garden. Each of the sculptural elements is lit by a coloured LED light which corresponds to the colour of the elemental symbol.
