One special detail of the lamp is the fixure: the lamps are attached on a magnetic spindle. The rounded glass volume with the reflective metal calyx stays stable by the pull of magnetism. ‘Hippo’ is available as ceiling, suspension, wall, table and floor versions, with an economic fluorescent bulb

'Twist' lamp by Alain Berteau for Belgian lighting brand Aluci

Belgian architect/designer Alain Berteau is a hard taskmaster. ‘When you switch it off, you’re not looking at a dead machine,’ Berteau said of his new ‘Twist’ LED lamp for Belgian lighting manufacturer Aluci, while in conversation with Architonic at the recent Interieur 2010 design biennale in Kortrijk. The piece’s highly reduced, architectural form ensures that it continues to work as an intriguing space-defining presence beyond its utilitarian function as a light source.


'Crane' by tossB

At this year’s light+building in Frankfurt the Belgian manufacturer tossB presented the new table lamp ‘Crane’ designed by Alain Monnens for the first time. Momentarily it is showcased at the INTERIEUR 2010 in Kortrijk. Just like an origami crane bird it is formed out of one single folded plate.

With her award-winning project ‘Pull-Over’, realised with the support of VIA (Promotion of Innovation in Furniture) in 2008, the Israel designer Bina Baitel presented a higly inventive floorlamp which is characterised by a luminous skin made from micro-perforated optical fibers connected to LEDs, passing through a layer of translucent silicone. The flexible skin can be unrolled over and over again through a simple movement in order to vary the light atmosphere.

The NextLevel Galerie in Paris dedicated its current exhibition to Bina Baitel’s work. The gallery is producing ‘Pull-Over’ lamp as well as Bina Baitel’s new Skins collection in limited edition. The exhibition runs from 16 September until 6 November, 2010.
