Oluce from David Village Lighting

Established in 1945 by the master Giuseppe Ostuni, Oluce is the oldest Italian lighting design company that is still active today. For many years Oluce was one of only three design companies to dominate the Italian scene, creating a hub for the designers who strongly engaged first in the reconstruction and later in the birth of series production. These designers, which included Vittoriano Viganò and BBPR, Gigi Caccia Dominioni, Ignazio Gardella, Marco Zanuso and Joe Colombo, animated the Milanese forum. To this day Oluce continues to attract young designers from around the world, creating innovative and iconic designs.

Oluce celebrates product anniversary


This year Oluce celebrates special anniversaries for three of its most loved designs, Atollo, Coupé and Lyndon. 


The Atollo was designed by Vico Magistretti and will be celebrating its 40th year in production. The Atollo table lamp has become a favourite over the years and in 1979 it won the Compasso d'Oro award. The table lamp is a simple luminous sculpture where nothing can be removed or added.

The Coupé will be celebrating its firtieth anniversary after originating in 1967 from the creative intuition of Joe Colombo. He initially designed it as a variation of the Spider lamp, with the same base and stem. The Coupé collection has become one of Oluce’s best know families.

The last of the trio is Lyndon which was created in 1977 again by Vico Magistretti. The collection has developed over the years into a vast collection which includes multiple versions for both indoors and outdoors. The suspension version draws on the stylish features of the collection, creating a light which is dedicated to the finest and most elegant spaces.  This year Oluce will also be releasing a historical reproduction of the Lyndon suspension lamp with a precious gold bespoke finish.

Lighting is a practical addition to any exterior space as well a beautiful decorative feature. Wall lights, floor standing and table lamps are traditional lighting forms which work very well. There are also recessed spotlights for decking and flooring, spike spotlights to illuminate plants and bollards to light your way.

Celebrating Sonora by Oluce

27 July 2016 Permalink

Oluce


Oluce


First designed in 1976 by Vico Magistretti for Oluce, Sonora became an emblematic product for the Italian company. The Sonora’s design stemmed from the popular sixties style of geometric shapes that transformed textiles, furnishings and fashions of the decade. Magistretti became somewhat obsessed with this design and what it symbolised, continuously evolving Sonora and forming a collection of suspension lights. The essence of Sonora’s form was its pure shape, viewed as a hemisphere for the huge impact it brings to a space. Magistretti believed when illuminated it characterized the whole environment with the volume it brought.


Oluce


Sonora was originally formed from a spun aluminium reflector and came in three sizes. In 1990, the collection expanded to an etched murano glass version which was very popular. In 1999, 2003 and 2009 additional sizes and finishes such as black or white with gold interior became available. The still expanding collection gives choice and flexibility to proud home owners and interior designers alike. Most commonly, the Sonora is placed over dinning tables. The glowing half sphere creates a beautiful atmosphere that brings people together for these everyday rituals.


This year Oluce Sonora turns forty years old, and to mark this occasion a video tribute will be shown to commemorate the iconic designer and his contribution to interior style.


Oluce


On the eve of Sonora’s fortieth birthday, Oluce are releasing a gold version of the 408 and 437 coming soon.

Maison and Objet Key Trends for 2015

31 January 2015 Permalink

maison and objet logo


The Maison and Objet event in Paris is a forecast for interior trends for the year ahead, comparable to Fashion week in Spring/Summer. This year the event has predicted four key trends based upon the popular themes and attention created by the exhibitors and exhibition visitors. The first unsurprising trend is Metallics. Particularly warm toned hues. This choice of metallic finishes has progressively become more popular for a few years now and has gradually filtered even down onto the high street! Here are our picks for the Metallic trend:


maison and objet metallic trend


1 - Kartell Fly Precious Pendants 2 - Tom Dixon Copper Mirror Ball shade 3 - Anglepoise Original 1227 in Chrome 4 - Tom Dixon Base Copper Floor Lamp 5 - &Tradition Utzon in Copper 6 - Terzani Orten’zia Table Lamp in Gold 7 - Foscarini Birdie Table Lamp in Chrome 8 - &Tradition Flowerpot in Copper 9 - Tom Dixon Base Table Lamp in Polish Brass 10 - Kartell Bourgie Copper Table Lamp


Our second trend From Maison and Objet is Hints of Neon, maybe not to everyone’s liking but a just a hint of a bright colour can add a bright cheerful pop of colour into our homes, especially appropriate for the Spring/Summer time. It is a nod to the 90’s as Fashion has also done. Neon has been seen on textiles, furniture, home accessories and also lighting. Be brave and give it a try! Here are our Picks for Neon Trend:


maison and objet neon trend


1 – Artemide Tolomeo Tavolo Micro in orange 2 – Artemide Tolomeo Tavolo Micro in yellow 3 – Vibia Wind Suspension in green or orange 4 – Oluce Canopy 422 in Pink 5 – Kartell Ghost Chairs in assorted colours 6 – Kartell Cindy Table Lamp in orange 7 – Kartell Bourgie Table Lamp in Blue


The third trend on the 2015 forecast is the colour Santorini Blue a shade to provoke a Mediterranean but modern vibe, a shade of blue to create tranquillity and timeless look within a space. These are our Santorini Blue Trend options:


maison and objet santorini blue trend


1 – Flos Miss Sissi Lamp in blue 2 – Kartell Fly Suspension in blue 3 – Kartell Cindy in blue 4 – Artemide Tolomeo Tavolo Micro in blue 5 – &tradition Flowerpot in Blue


Our final trend noted from Maison and Objet is the Natural Minerals, the style has come from the increasing need for eco friendly home fashions and is becoming increasing popular. Aesthetics showcasing a rustic, hand crafted and natural look, often paired with pastel and neutral colours to complete the highly stylish design. Here are our picks from this theme:


maison and objet natural trend


1 – Muuto Wood Table Lamp 2 – Decode Heavy Desk Lamp 3 – Tom Dixon Off Cut Stool 4 – Secto Victo Suspension Lamp 5 – Fabbian Stick Floor Lamp 6 – Santa & Cole Fad Table Lamp

Oluce Atollo

25 April 2014 Permalink

 The Oluce Atollo has become one of the best know symbols of Italian design worldwide. Designed by Vico Magistretti in 1977, it was awarded the Compasso d'Oro in 1979 and became, since then, part of the permanent collections of the world's major museum of design. The simple geometry of the design creates a luminous sculpture from which nothing can be removed and to which nothing can be added.
