'Duii' lamp by Diesel with Foscarini

Continuing their ongoing collaboration initiated back in 2009, the famous clothing brand Diesel and the Italian lighting specialists Foscarini have realised a new collection of lamps. Comprising five new pendant, table and floor lamp designs, the series of novelties includes this small, jolly model ‘Duii mini’. Inspired by both: its namesake Disney character and a form of ‘the headlight of a classic car’, ‘Duii mini’ is available in two colours; bright yellow or dark grey and the design was presented earlier last month at the Temporary Museum For New Design in Superstudio Piu.

'IN-EI' lighting collection by Issey Miyake for Artemide

The acclaimed Japanese fashion designer and recent Design Museum’s Design of the Year 2012 awards winner Issey Miyake has applied his trademark, ingenious 132 5 pleating technique to this new series of delicate textile lamps manufactured by the Italian brand Artemide. Called ‘IN-EI’ – Japanese for ‘shadow, shadiness, nuance’ – the collection comprises floor, table and pendant lamp designs, all of which were created using 2 or 3D mathematic principals (just like the 2010 132 5 clothing collection). Made of reclaimed PET bottle fibre, the lamps can be folded flat and become 3D shapes, starting from a single piece of cloth.

Ricochet light, Daniel Rybakken 2012; photo by Kalle Sanner & Daniel Rybakken

On the occasion of the upcoming Salone Internazionale del Mobile fair (17 – 22 April), Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken has developed two separate installations which will showcase his most recent designs. Featuring ‘Ricochet’ and ‘Coherence’ lights and ‘Single Flower Vase’, the first project will be on view during iSaloni at Spazio Rossana Orlandi - a former tile factory in Milan’s Magenta neighbourhood. The second installation, on show at Luceplan Temporary Design Gallery on via Procaccini 1 will focus on a wall-mounted ‘Counterbalance’ light which was presented in 2011 and will now be launched by Luceplan.

'Porcelain' pendant light by Studio WM; photo by Paul Schipper

Wendy Legro and Maarten Collignon, a duo of young, Eindhoven-trained designers behind Rotterdam-based Studio WM, have realised these two, pared-down pendant lights: a shipyard-inspired, black opaque model called ‘Porcelain’ and a similar, hand-blown glass version, ‘Gradient.’ Based on the same principle, both of the designs employ a pulley mechanism which enables an easy adjustment of the height of the lamps. Part of the ‘Lightness in Lines’ collection, the lights will be presented at Ventura Lambrate during the Salone del Mobile 2012 in Milan. (more…)

Disassembled 'Kroon' chandelier by Zmik; photo courtesy of the designers

A Swiss multidisciplinary design studio Zmik have reinterpreted the form and, to some extent, function of an ordinary industrial working light by combining it with high-gloss polished chrome elements in this stellate-shaped chandelier. Incorporating the increasingly-popular LED technology, ‘Kroon’ exists in two different sizes and the light has just been shortlisted by Philippe Starck as one of the 10 finalists for the Frame Moooi Award 2012.

'Coral' pendant light by Arturo Alvarez

Spanish designer Arturo Alvarez has created this series of delicate, organically-shaped suspension lights inspired by the beauty and structural complexity of aquatic life. Encompassing five different models, ‘Coral’ is made of texturised silicone mesh in white, black or orange and the collection was presented earlier this year at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2012. (more…)

'Dome' table lamp by Todd Bracher for Mater

It might have been designed nearly three years ago, yet we still very much admire the purity of form and boldness of this table lamp created by a New York-based designer Todd Bracher. Composed of partly recycled aluminium shade and a steel base, ‘Dome’ was inspired by ‘the phases of the moon and its contrast between light and shadow.’ In 2009, the design was named the ‘Best Table Lamp’ in Wallpaper* Design Awards and the lamp is manufactured by a Copenhagen-based brand Mater, in one of Denmark’s few remaining workshops specialising in the spin forming technique.
