'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.

'Impact' table by Noon Studio

Both pieces will be showcased at the currently ongoing maison & objets in Paris.
'Lens' by Jens Fager for ZERO
Back to roots: After times of formal experimentation and technical and aesthetic hig-end appearances it seems like the archtypical design found its way back to modern living rooms – original forms which refer to times, when things were above all appreciated for their usability. Some of the new creations by the Swedish lighting manufacturer ZERO took up this trend. Jens Fager’s series of lamps ‘Lens’ consists of two pendant lights and a table lamp. The lamp shades are made from painted aluminum and matt acrylic. The table lamp can be mounted on the adjustable table base or fixed through the table top.
