'Morgana' pendant light by Stefano Papi for Slamp

The Italian industrial designer and Slamp‘s long-time collaborator Stefano Papi has realised this intricate pendant light which was presented earlier this year during Milan’s international lighting fair Euroluce.

Polycarbonate and die-cast aluminium are used to express dynamic lines that refer to the speed and aerodynamics associated with car-racing. The seat element sits on a reverse cantilever base. The chair will be shown in April at the Milan Furniture Fair as part of Casamania’s new collection.

'Hope' by Luceplan

'Hope' by Luceplan

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.

Polycarbonate injection moulding technique

Polycarbonate injection moulding technique

Ludovica and Roberto Palomba’s latest project for Foscarini is the result of a long research process that has led to the creation of Fly-Fly; a hanging lamp created with a polycarbonate injection moulding technique that guarantees 360° lighting.

The lamp features a special form that recalls an elegant hat, with wings that create a sensation of lightness and a satin finish that renders it a discrete, elegant presence that will enhance any environment with its aerial feel.

Available in white and orange
