Featured - Light Years Suspence
The inspiration for the suspence series was from the idea of translating a movement into a physical shape. The shade of the lamp has been created by pulling an elementary movement involving physical force. The force of this is visible at the top of the lamp where you can see the tip. The natural soft curves of the suspense pendant are designed to fit in with a monochrome interior and the shade and cord are perceived to be one uninterrupted design.
The infinity diffuser at the bottom of the lamp prevents glare and concentrates the light creating an elegant optical illusion. The Suspence design is available in two sizes and three colours with the matt monochrome finishes benefiting any room interior.

Featured – Light Years Lullaby
The Lullaby series of pendant lamps was designed by Monica Förster in 2014. The pendant collection is created using a sustainable material which exudes a beautifully graceful light.
Lullaby is made from stone paper which is shaped into a pentagonal using five slender ash lamellae pieces.
The ash panels give the shade stability as well as both shape and character with pleasing luminous qualities which creates a cosy atmosphere in any room.
The Lamp provides both a diffused and direct downwards light which makes the lamp perfect for a dinning or meeting room table.

During our visit to the Stockholm Furniture and Lighting Fair we got the chance to see some of the latest designs from the brands that we work with.
Released late last year the Suspence collection from Light Years is already a popular design of theirs. The inspiration for the design by GamFratesi's was translating a movement into a physical shape. The pendants design is perceived to be uninterrupted with an infinity diffuser at the bottom which prevents glare and creates an elegant diffused light.
Released at the same time was the Suspence Nomad which is designed to be placed on a horizontal surface for example a floor or staircase. Just like a nomad it can be moved from place to place with ease by lifting the silicone handle at the top.
Konkret is a brand new pendant by Orjso which caught everyone attention at the fair. The series puts Orsjo’s constituent material to the test. Despite the pendants name suggesting a much harder material it is made from ash veneer with a black ombre tint and has fine details such its brass studs which attached the leather straps.
“I wanted to challenge the way we use wood as a material for lights and show how the texture of the material can be changed through its design and how this also creates a natural and warm light,” says designer Jonas Edvard.
This year Louis Poulsen has released one new design and has updated 2 of it most popular collections. At their stand in Stockholm they had all three of the latest releases. Shown below are a few designs from the updated PH collection and the new Above pendant. Keep your eyes peeled as we will soon be revealing the second collection to be updated by Louis Poulsen.
Late last year Foscarini along with the Aplomb Large released the Spokes 2 Large pendant and the New Buds collection. The three designs have already proved popular with their simple and modern design. All three work well to be placed either in the home or in a commercial area.
Finnish based lighting company Secto made a simple yet stunning display. The company specialises in hand-made wooden design lighting. Their stand showed two new designs, the new Teelo table and a yet unnamed wall light. The Teelo table has a simple yet stylish design which incorporates a sculptural tone and secto’s signature clean lines.
The new wall was designed in response to the clear demand for a light which is not suspended but fixed. The design brings a new character to ceiling and wall fixtures where wood is not a material commonly used.

In March’s issue of Elle Decoration Editor Michelle Ogundehin discusses the idea of grey being the new neutral. Over the last few years neutrals have turned their connotations from boring dull shades to now express high end style. In the mist of that, grey is also now going against the ideas of being an old age, cold colour and is now one which is seen to easily fit into your interior giving you a step up from whites and neutrals.

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

LightYears Avion Suspension
LightYears Avion, the pendant inspired by Zeppelin airships gliding across the sky. Their steady grace resonated with Iskos-Berlin to create the Avion.
This polyethylene oval pendant is designed to appear light and large as a Zeppelin is, to fill ‘interior airspace’ within a room. Avion hovers playfully in the air and can be displayed as a single eye catching design, or as a dynamic cluster to create intriguing environments.
