The latest releases from Lee Broom


It’s that time of year again for the annual pilgrimage to the Milan Salone Del Mobile to see the latest in Lighting and Furniture design.


David Village Lighting always visits the show to ensure we have the best products available for our customers to choose from.


It’s an extremely busy and hot occasion, along with many showroom events in the city, and this year seemed the busiest to date.


It was great to see so many people interested in well designed products.


Lee Broom is one of the up and coming brands which we feel is both exciting and current so it is with pleasure that we present two of their new collections launched in Milan, which are now available from David Village Lighting.


The new collections are inspired by vertical and horizontal spaces, spherical forms and the refraction and reflection of light.


Lee Broom


The Eclipse range includes a pendant, a chandelier, a table lamp and a surface light.


The simple design features a mirror-polished chrome disc and an acrylic disc which interact creating a mirroring illusion. The Eclipse range works well when placed on its own or featured together.

The Orion range includes two pendant styles; one with the LED inside the tube and one with the LED inside the Globe. These connect and expand horizontally and vertically to create bespoke features, perfect for creating a statement.

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.

Flos


Five tables by Flos


For over 50 years Flos have been leaders in the lighting industry and have created many design classics. Below we have picked out five of the most popular and well loved table lights by Flos.


IC


Flos


The IC table was designed in 2014 by Cypriot-born designer Michael Anastassiades. The design explores balance and also includes wall lights, ceiling pendants and ceiling mounted lights. The light is formed from a sphere which is perfectly balanced on the edge of a rod. Designer Michael Anastassiades was spinning a set of spheres, moving them around on his arms and edge of his fingers, as he got mesmerized by the magic of his skill, suddenly the spheres look perfectly still. He wanted to capture that exact moment.


Miss K


Flos


The Miss K is an ultra-contemporary style table lamp which provides a beautiful diffused light. The two transparent injection-moulded diffusers which are placed within each other are the lamps unique feature. The Miss K lamp has an in-line dimmer on the transparent cord and is available in 4 finishes; black, red, silver or soft.


K-Tribe


Flos


The K-Tribe is a follow on from the original Miss K table. The design was released in 2007 by Philippe Starck and features a square base with a large size shade which is perfect for area where a larger lamp is required. The light features a dimmer switch on the cord perfect for creating a beautiful ambient light in any room.


Tatou


Flos


Designed by Patricia Urquiola in 2012 the Flos Tatou table is a dome styled shade which lets the light filter out from the inside. Tatou is French for armadillo: the mammal famous for its structure made up of plates of bone covered with a protective layer of horn. The tatou table is part of a family which also includes a floor and suspension version in either white, black or orche.


Spun Light


Flos


The essence of the Spun Light designed by Sebastian Wrong in 2003 is simplicity. The table lamp is made from modern technology whilst embracing craftsmanship.  The table is machined from aluminium and made to a high specification. “The lights are bold and sleek using colour and form to create a contemporary classic.” Sebastian Wrong.

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.

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.

Flos’s Most loved – The Glo-ball

7 September 2016 Permalink

Flos


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.


Flos


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.

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.

Lampe Gras - Le mobilier de Gras

19 August 2016 Permalink

Lampe Gras


Founder of Lampe Gras, Bernard-Albin Gras never designed furniture; his passion was for lamps for use in offices and industrial environments.


So what is Le mobilier de Gras? Translated into English it means the Gras range of furniture. 


Lampe Gras


(Plug and Dream)


It’s the start of something new for Lampe Gras yet is in keeping with their traditional designs.


The collection has been designed to serve the person who is using it, focusing on it being functional, resistant and serviceable.


 Lampe Gras


(Plug and Work)


Similar to Lampe Gras traditional designs the furniture range can be deflective from its original function. For example the Plug and Dream can become a welcome to an entrance and the Plug and Work can become a freestanding counter prefect for drinks.


Designed to stand the test of time and wear but not to show its age, the Le mobilier de Gras range is created using simple but solid materials; steel, wood and rubber.
