‘Potence Pivotante’ by Charlotte Perriand reissued by Nemo

The Italian lighting brand Nemo has reintroduced this extremely reduced, wall-mounted lamp originally designed by the acclaimed Parisian designer Charlotte Perriand in 1938. Composed of two plain, matt black metal tubes and equally simple, frosted white glass diffuser, ‘Potence Pivotante’ has been presented at this year’s Salone del Mobile and is ‘the result of a meticulous rediscovery conducted in close collaboration with M.me Pernette Perriand-Barsac, the daughter and sole heir of Charlotte Perriand.’ (more…)

detail of the 'Sorry Giotto' floor lamp by Catellani & Smith

The Italian lighting brand Catellani & Smith has launched this series of beautifully minimalist, circular LED lamps called ‘Sorry Giotto’. Comprising a floor and a wall version, the design’s name refers to the legendary, perfect freehand circle drawn by the Italian late Middle Ages painter Giotto di Bondone. Made of hand-painted copper, the delicate, highly-sculptural floor model of the light has recently won the ‘Best Floor Light’ award at the Wallpaper* Design Awards 2012. (more…)

'Magika' by Kirsti Taiviola

The Finnish designer Kirsti Taiviola presented her new series of wall lamps at this year’s Salone Satellite in Milan. It is not the sober, technical looking body but the rather sophisticated, floral projections of the light arising from the precisely shaped glass bowls, which defines the beauty of this piece.

Made from reinforced paper pulp: 'A piece of forest' by Modern Times

DuraPulp is a bio-degradable, composite material invented by the Swedish manufacturer Södra. It is made from wood pulp and PLA (polyactic acid, a biologically degradable polymer produced from corn starch) and can be moulded or pressed into any thinkable shape. After being heated the material becomes stiff and durable. The Swedish manufacturer Wästberg already developed a lamp with this promising material and at this year’s Salone Satellite the young Swedish designers Rasmus Malbert and Johannes Tjernberg from Modern Times presented this series of lamps made from DuraPulp. ‘A piece of forest’ is composed of a variable number of hexagonal shingles which are mounted on the wall or on screen or set together to a collar of small lamps. The light source is a short LED strip, glued into the shells.

The lamp will be on show during this year’s Milan Design Week at the Design Deutschland 2011 exhibition at Carrozzeria in Via Tortona 32.

'one.LED' by FSIGN

At this year’s light+building the German manufacturer FSIGN presented ‘one.LED’, a new lighting family which particularly takes advantage of the low construction height the FSIGN[LED]technology permits. The lamps consist of an accordingly bent alucubond body, in which the LED modules are planar embedded. The aluminium plays a major part in the thermal management by transporting the heat to the ambience.

FSIGN[LED] technology

Core of this technology is a 1/4 watt multichip LED with a minimum of heat generation.

The LED exists of three blue emitting semiconductor chips and a yellow photoluminescent overlayer which transforms light into a pleasant warm white of 3000K, the colour temperature of a halogen bulb.

Homogeneity of luminosity and colour temperature as well as colour rendering index CRI > 80 is guaranteed by using preselected LEDs.
