Discocó pendant: beautiful even when off turned off

Discocó pendant: beautiful even when off turned off

Today, the Discocó has become an icon of modern lighting. Its unique look catches the eye just as its unique design catches and reflects the light, carefully controlling your room’s illumination. As its designer Christophe Mathieu states, “the results are a pleasant illumination that has a fresh and soft look, and, best of all, there’s no glare.”
Discocó is available in five sizes and four finishes options, so there’s a Discocó for every space. Produced by Marset, it’s also offered as a wall sconce and a ceiling light.

Pleat Box lamps: the poetics of the unexpected

 

The Pleat Box collection of Marset was designed by expert ceramist Xavier Mañosa and the Berlin design firm Mashallah. Together, they followed the idea of transferring a digitally-designed crease in a piece of cloth into a ceramic light fixture. The result is a unique object that brings together craftsmanship and technology.

When History and Design go hand in hand

Mercer Hotel Barcelona

 

The Mercer Hotel Barcelona—an exclusive, five star “Grand Luxe” hotel that’s listed as a historical monument in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic neighborhood—protects a piece of Barcelona’s valuable historical heritage, as it includes sections of the Roman walls of the ancient city of Barcino, parts of which date back to the 1st century A.D.
Hotel guests have exclusive access to the medieval frescoes of the 28th bastion, discovered during a four-year renovation by architect Rafael Moneo.
Moneo’s vision integrates these items of great historical value with modern design pieces, such as Marset’s Ginger floor lamp in the hotel lounge and Cala outdoor lamp on the rooftop terrace.

Reflections on light by MARSET.

Posted by Walter Phillips on 25.10.2016 - Tagged as:

Behind any object, especially those concerned with light, there is a clear intention to attempt to improve the quality of life of the user and take care of the space in which the light is found. Light allows us to see our surroundings, looking after light is essential, and it is precisely this, that is at the heart of this project.

 

‘Reflections on light’ is part of a series of conversations with architects, designers and artists who work with and think about light every day. This first series of videos and interviews focuses on the people behind the objects, concentrating on their creative vision and background from which their ideas are born, the importance of the beauty of an object that is well made, but at the same time never forgetting how the object affects our perception of life.

Marset brings exclusivity and innovation to private banking

Marset brings exclusivity and innovation to private banking

Marset brings exclusivity and innovation to private banking

Architecture and interior design are strategic tools that also communicate brand values. In this case, the architect Stefano Colli has performed an exercise in rebranding a private bank in Spanish, focusing on values like rigour, tradition, exclusivity and innovation.

The private banking clients are welcomed in an exclusive, domestic atmosphere which communicates respect for tradition and positive values. Thanks to the use of carefully chosen furnishings and lights, a message is conveyed that expresses cultivated, solid stylistic values.

Lights like the Pleat Box, Nenúfar, Discocó, Cala, Neón de Luz and Hazy Day from the Marset collection create a clear discourse around the concept of exclusivity. They are timeless pieces whose value will remain unchanged over time.

Marset private residence

 

At Marset they believe that shadows are what furnish a space with color, atmosphere and warmth. There is no one right light, and the perfect lamp does not exist. In any space, there have to be darker areas so that one can better appreciate the areas with more light. A good lamp must have the ability to create moods and cast shadows around us. There is no relief without shadows.

At this private residence in Barcelona, Marset lit up the different areas with its Cala, Funiculí, Ginger, Polo, Scantling, Mercer and La Discrète lighting collections.
