“Super normal” – Naoto Fukasawa coined this term, when he described the focus of his work. “Special is usually less useful than normal” he declares.
With the new lighting family LEIA for the Swiss manufacturer Belux he once more demonstrates his philosophy.
In LEIA, Fukasawa knowingly combines different materials to luminous effect; whilst the light body itself is made of opal satin art glass, in contrast, the light base and the ceiling disk are high gloss, inspired by the high gloss of a concert piano. A thin cover plate in the same material as the base concludes the light optically at the top. Mirrored chrome was selected for the stem of the table, standing reading and table reading lights.
