A Swiss multidisciplinary design studio Zmik have reinterpreted the form and, to some extent, function of an ordinary industrial working light by combining it with high-gloss polished chrome elements in this stellate-shaped chandelier. Incorporating the increasingly-popular LED technology, ‘Kroon’ exists in two different sizes and the light has just been shortlisted by Philippe Starck as one of the 10 finalists for the Frame Moooi Award 2012.

'Arnolfini' light sculpture by Studio Job for Venini, in situ at the Museo Bagatti Valsecchi during this year's Milan Salone del Mobile

Stepping out of the craziness of the Milanese streets during this year’s Salone del Mobile into the serenity of the Museo Bagatti Valsecchi was, if you’ll allow us to be just a little dramatic, like being able to breathe once more. Dutch/Belgian design duo Studio Job’s ‘Arnolfini’ light sculpture for renowned glass manufacturer Venini was one of the true joys of the furniture fair, its virtuosity forming a perfect dialogue with its physical, architectural context.

'Arnolfini' light sculpture by Studio Job for Venini

Following in the footsteps of Gio Ponti, Alessandro Mendini and Ettore Sottsass, who all collaborated with the Venetian glass experts, Studio Job have created a ‘floating still life’ (their words) that consists of pots and pans, beaded onto a traditional, gold-plated chandelier framework. Just don’t ask them what it means. ‘I am afraid we cannot give you a straight answer,’ says Job Smeets. ‘It probably has to do with surreal memories that become monumental icons as time goes by. A vocabulary sculpted in material instead of words.’ We’ll settle for that.
