Euroluce Mian 2015 part 2 by John Bechini and Fiona Venn
DCW Editions Paris – Here Comes the Sun, Designed by Bertrand Balas in the spring of 1969, the Here Comes the Sun hanging lamp takes on a magical quality once illuminated. Darkness loses its rawness and metamorphoses into something reassuring. Here Comes the Sun is available in combinations of black, white and copper.
Axo Light – Fedora -The Fedora provides a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional design of Russian dolls. Designed by Dima Loginoff, the unusual combination of metal with decorative cut glass creates a timeless classic.
Flos– Captain Flint -The Captain Flint lamp is designed by Michael Anastassiades to be an up-lighter illuminating the space with ambient lighting, while at the same time it may be rotated and directed down; to become a dim companion for reading. The notion of balance is prominent in its form, a cone resting delicately on its point on a rotating horizontal metal rod. The base is in marble, bringing an element of stability and strength.
Flos– Notch – Michael Anastassiades’s Notch pendant is designed as a piece of jewelry. Based on the definition of pendant, ‘a piece of jewelry that hangs from a chain worn round the neck’ and ‘a light designed to hang from the ceiling’. Notch is a suspension lamp with adjustable height, regulated by varying the angle of the braces.
Flos– Serena -The Serena family of lamps is characterized by round or oval leaf-shaped diffusers, where the light source evokes the pistil of a flower. It is inspired by the natural world, by leaves of different shapes and colours. Designed as a floor-standing, table, applique and branch-like suspension lamp and conceived by Patricia Urquiola in refined materials and finishes: copper, gold, wood, polished aluminum or matt white varnish.
Foscarini – Lake. A dense ink stain that spreads in water, the overhead view of a lake, with an irregular profile just like many of the shapes we find in nature. These are some of the pictures that spring to mind when we look at Lake, the new wall lamp designed by Lucidi Pevere, which stands out for its organic, asymmetrical shape filled with colour. The slim space tucked within the bent edge of the lamp accommodates and conceals the LED light source, which casts a fluid light inwards, shining along the glossy surface.
Graypants – Murmurations – Providing more than just illumination, this new collection from Graypants is an LED system inspired by the natural phenomenon: murmurations. The flock of birds spectacle is translated into dynamic and captivating three-dimensional forms. Each LED pendant within the “flock” is harmoniously connected to its neighbors, creating varying compositions from every viewpoint. www.graypants.com
Lasvit – Fungo. The Fungo chandelier was inspired by the shape of a mushroom growing on wood. The Campana brothers chose to blend Lasvit’s glassmaking tradition and fuse it with their own techniques working with natural materials. The resulting luminaire displays a striking contrast between the formal rigidity of the chandelier’s wooden structure and the blown-glass that appears to emerge spontaneously from the wood. www.lasvit.com
Lasvit – Well .Designed by Stefan Nosko and Katarina Belickova, the Well lamp is inspired by traditional water wells. It takes the idea of a simple wooden handle mechanism winding a rope and a lowering a bucket into the water and applies this to light. When lowered the light changes through a blue gradient while in a second option it changes through a sanded matte finish.
Louis Vuitton – Bell Lamp Inspired by Louis Vuitton’s history of travel, the Bell Lamp is a re-imagined, modern-day lantern. It is handmade in Venice by glass experts and then assembled with pioneering technology to allow it to be recharged by sunlight, as well as conventionally. Designed by Barber & Osgerby, the Bell Lamp is practical, cordless and solar-powered, can be easily carried anywhere and everywhere, whether down the garden or out into the wilds.
Louis Vuitton – Miller Lamp The Miller Lamp designed by Gwenael Nicolas is small enough to pack into any bag and strong enough to accompany even the most intrepid voyages. Its discreetly elegant looks –inspired by details of Louis Vuitton maroquinerie– are matched by its ease of use: simply stretch the Miller Lamp’s caramel grained-leather case to reveal a shade of folded fabric that softens the light of the rechargeable LED hidden within.
Luce Plan – Soleil Noir Technological and futuristic, Soleil Noir by Odile Decq is a suspension and ceiling lamp with an organic form in molded polyurethane foam. The LED light source is hidden inside a disk that generates homogeneous diffused, indirect lighting. www.luceplan.com
