'Crane' by tossB

At this year’s light+building in Frankfurt the Belgian manufacturer tossB presented the new table lamp ‘Crane’ designed by Alain Monnens for the first time. Momentarily it is showcased at the INTERIEUR 2010 in Kortrijk. Just like an origami crane bird it is formed out of one single folded plate.

'Radarrr' by Ingo Maurer

This highly factual floorlamp by Ingo Maurer was presented at this year’s light+building for the first time. ‘Radarrr’ is composed of a faceted aluminium screen which reflects and disperses the light and a tripod base. The patent ball-joint makes it possible to turn and tilt the screen. A functional detail is the acanthoid cooling element on the backside of the strong and heat-emitting LED.

‘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.”

'Area' by Luceplan

No, it is not the newest Apple notebook, but anyway, as long as you don’t try to check your emails with it, the flat lamp ‘Area’ designed by the Milano based Habits Studio convinces with a rather innovative concept. The rectangular body is in a thin, white thermoplastic material. Behind the transparent Plexiglas screen lie the LEDs, combined with the latest technologies in light transmission – back light. The result is a perfectly uniform luminous surface with high flows.

'Area' by Luceplan

“The touch screen commands allow the user to turn the device on and off by simply touching the side of the frame. A series of mirror-polished aluminium supports offer myriad applications, whether for a wall, suspension, floor, or table.”
