Ljubljana-based lighting brand Vertigo Bird will be showing new colours for popular products Funnel by bevk perović arhitekti and Balloon by Uli Budde at Salone del Mobile 2015.
Funnel by bevk perović arhitekti, originally designed in 2011, available as a hanging lamp as well as table and floor lamps, is now available in white and black. About Funnel, says Vertigo Bird, “While a familiar object it’s also been transformed into a new one, hanging above the kitchen or dining table as a recognizable, iconic light source – a small funnel that serves as a ceiling rosette, a large one casting light onto the horizontal surface below. The same elements are further transformed into table and floor lamps, with a large pivoting funnel shade that allows for specific directing of the light.”
As for the Balloon lamp by Uli Budde, originally designed in 2010, it will now be available in white, yellow and red. “Balloon owes elements of its form to the typical antique oil lamps and candle holders with a reflector placed behind the flame to reflect and direct the light. Besides, the natural occurrence of what we often consider the moon to be a light source (next to e.g. fire and the sun) although it is just a reflected light from the sun, gave further stimulus to work with idea of the indirect light.”
