The detail of the 'Magneto' lamp by Giulio Iacchetti for Foscarini
Following his popular ‘Tropico’ pendant lamp on which he collaborated with the Italian lighting specialists Foscarini in 2008, the Milan-based industrial designer Giulio Iacchetti has recently created this new table and floor lights called ‘Magneto’. Made of painted steel and available at the end of March 2012 in either red or grey colour version, the minimalist, pared-down lamp emits an intensive and precise beam of LED light, which can be adjusted and repositioned thanks to ’the mysterious force of a magnet that joins the support rod with a circular base’ of the design.

detail of the 'Sorry Giotto' floor lamp by Catellani & Smith
The Italian lighting brand Catellani & Smith has launched this series of beautifully minimalist, circular LED lamps called ‘Sorry Giotto’.

Made from reinforced paper pulp: 'A piece of forest' by Modern Times
DuraPulp is a bio-degradable, composite material invented by the Swedish manufacturer Södra. It is made from wood pulp and PLA (polyactic acid, a biologically degradable polymer produced from corn starch) and can be moulded or pressed into any thinkable shape. After being heated the material becomes stiff and durable. The Swedish manufacturer Wästberg already developed a lamp with this promising material and at this year’s Salone Satellite the young Swedish designers Rasmus Malbert and Johannes Tjernberg from Modern Times presented this series of lamps made from DuraPulp. ‘A piece of forest’ is composed of a variable number of hexagonal shingles which are mounted on the wall or on screen or set together to a collar of small lamps. The light source is a short LED strip, glued into the shells.

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
