'Arkki' lights by Johan Kauppi for Blond Belysning

‘Arkki’ lights by Johan Kauppi for Blond Belysning

Johan Kauppi’s ‘Arkki’, the Finnish word for ark, was derived from the fixtures ability to balance technique with soft shapes while somewhat resembling a craft or capsule.

'Hippo' pendant light by A + A Cooren for Vertigo Bird

The Paris based design studio A+A Cooren will present this new series of lamps developed together with the Slovenian manufacturer Vertigo Bird at the ‘Nouvelle Vague – the new French domestic landscape’ exhibition during this year’s Milan Design Week at Centre Culturel Français, Palazzo delle Stelline, corso Magenta 63.

One special detail of the lamp is the fixure: the lamps are attached on a magnetic spindle. The rounded glass volume with the reflective metal calyx stays stable by the pull of magnetism. ‘Hippo’ is available as ceiling, suspension, wall, table and floor versions, with an economic fluorescent bulb

‘Discus’ by EOOS for Zumtobel (AT)

'Discus' by Zumtobel

The Austrian specialist for architectural lighting Zumtobel presented its first spot light system especially designed for LED technology. It was developed in collaboration with EOOS and showcased during this year’s light+building in Frankfurt for the first time. The flat and low-profile body is made of die-cast aluminium, the ring of cooling ribs is not only the spotlight’s dominating design feature but also performs the cooling function required by LED technology. Optimised thermal management is decisive for the durablity of any kind of high-power LED modules.

'Diskus' by Zumtobel

“The idea behind the design developed by the Austrian designer trio was to minimise the shapes by using the new LED technology. Harald Gründl from EOOS: “Discus is the archaic symbol of the sun – combined with cutting-edge LED lighting technology.”

Thus, the LED version has a width of only 28 mm. The newly developed track-box adapter platform features a compact, unobtrusive design, emphasising the minimalist spotlight concept. For its appealing design, Zumtobel won the 2010 iF award for excellent product design granted by the Design Council.”

'Wood' table lamp by Fredrik Mattson

'Wood' table lamp by Fredrik Mattson

The collaboration between the Swedish manufacturer Zero and the Stockholm based designer Fredrik Mattson has been going on for several years now. At this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair the successful team presented ‘Wood’ (this product name seems to be popular this year), a new series of interior lighting. The base of each model is a cylindric veneered body which is connected to an accordant reflector – made from matt opal glass for the pendant lights and painted aluminum or copper for the table lamp.

'Granny' pendant lamp by Pudelskern Design for Casamania (IT)

'Granny' pendant lamp by Pudelskern Design for Casamania, 2010

There’s somewhat of a contradiction at the heart of Casamania’s new pendant lamp ‘Granny’, designed by Pudelskern Design and shown at the recent Maison & Objet design fair in Paris: a light (and, ergo, heat) source that sports a natural-wool covering. The aesthetic is industrial-design-meets-toothy-craft. While the wool comes from Tyrolian sheep, the lamp itself is knitted by hand in the Netherlands. You’ll be pleased to hear the material is fire-retardant…

'Canova' by Produzione Privata

'Canova' by Produzione Privata

In the 1990s, after beeing part of the famous Memphis group, the Italian architect Michele De Lucchi founded Produzione Privata – a manufacturing studio with the focus on high-quality craftsmanship and therefore production of a limited number of pieces.

Over the years, Produzione Privata has developed into a group of Workshops scattered across Italy, where skilled crafts are still pursued.

'Canova' ceiling light by Produzione Privata

The ceiling and pendant light ‘Canova’ designed by Michele De Lucchi and Philippe Nigro demonstrates the company’s philosophy.

Out of a block of opaque, compact, cut and polished Carrara marble came a hollow cylinder to house the bulb. Light is emitted decisively from its aperture. Filtered by the marble, it leaves glimpses of beautiful veinings.
