‘Cruda’ task lamp by Alessandro Marelli

'Forest of Evolution' by Naohiko Mitsui
One highlight during the Salone del Mobile 2011 was this light installation by Naohiko Mitsui / Triumph Design for the Japanese manufacturer Lumiotec in Zona Tortona. ‘Forest of Evolution’ was a magical space of only 24 square meters displaying ‘TLEE’, a large futuristic tree made by nine OLED panels. Beside this there was a number of different objects that include OLED technology.
"Double C-Future" by Ingo Maurer and team
We remember the first stunning OLED (organic light emitting diode) works by Ingo Maurer from the light+building in 2008. This year the German designer and manufacturer (and icon of lighting design) is presenting his new developments of OLED lightings. The lamps were designed in collaboration with the OLED – manufacturers Osram and Novaled. Like we know it from some of his former pieces Ingo Maurer does not hide the technical parts behind a casing but accentuates the beauty of the lamp`s technology.
