The Cologne-based interdisciplinary collective Dua presented this sophisticated suspension lamp at this year’s ‘Neue Räume’ in Zürich. Due to a smart pulley machanism the lamp can be freely positioned in the room.

“The light is suspended from four counterbalances that hang from each corner of the room, so that the lamp can be moved and remains in place in almost every position. It illuminates where light is desired and conforms to each individual situation. The material of the lampshade contains wood shavings, that create a pleasant and natural ambience. Each light fitment is unique because of its arbitrary dispersion.”

Freely suspended from the ceiling using the Yoyo suspension system.

All installation elements are made of nickel-plated metal.

Simple and meticulously designed, the unpretentious Yoyo suspension system by the german manufacturer acousticpearls lets you suspend panels from the ceiling anywhere in a room. There are round openings on the back of the panels. Two panels can be placed back-to-back and hung at any height using the steplessly adjustable mounting fixtures of the suspension system. Voilà, a lightweight floating element that makes a statement: You can create stylish partitioning elements between workspaces, spaces within a room or anywhere else that needs acoustic protection without any available walls.

The Yoyo suspension system can be used to suspend a pair of equally-sized panels by acousticpearls freely in a room. The panels can be suspended either vertically or horizontally. The suspension system of the panels consists of two ceiling anchors using a simple metal cylinder with a cover plate, two thin, extremely sturdy metal cables with ball-type nipples, and two freely height-adjustable mounting fixtures for attaching the panels.
