Moving the light source along the stem of ‘Ascent’, Daniel Rybakken’s lamp for Luceplan, the light intensity goes from being turned off at the bottom position to gradually ascending to full light output at the top. Giving the user control over not only the light intensity, but also the spread of the light.

A macro take on his ‘Color Lamp’ for Ligne Roset, Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken’s large-scale, outdoor light installation Paris’s Swedish Institute revisits the idea of layering and the effects it produces when combined with illumination. (more…)

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.

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.

“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.”
The wall lamp ‘Écran’ is the second creation the French designer Inga Sempé designed for the Italian manfacturer Luceplan. Its body is made from cast aluminium. The diffuse illumination, produced by an energy-saving halogen bulb, is doubled to reach the setting both directly, through the white silk-screened glass diffuser, and indirectly, through a slit in the wall support towards the wall.

‘Archetype’ is a lamp with a classical shape, inspired by the traditional Scandinavian design adopted by Goodmorning Technology, the Danish company signing the project.
Its exterior structure is in painted aluminium and the internal diffuser is in transparent polycarbonate; integrated between these two elements is a warm white LED and an E27 screw attachment for connection to any standard-size traditional bulb holder.

The Milan based designers Francisco Gomez Paz and Paolo Rizzatto designed this light and delicate chandelier for the Italian lighting manufacturer Luceplan. It is composed of moulded polycarbonate leafs, characterised by a glossy external surface and a textured internal surface treated with a series of concentric micro-prisms. Each leaf is mounted on a thin stem – these stems are finally fixed to a light metal structure, which exists in different sizes.
