"Lanterna" by Bevk Perovic Arhitekti

At the last light+building two year`s ago the Slovanian manufacturer Vertigo Bird launched its first collection and demonstrated its high potential. With this year`s collection they fulfill all our expectations.

“Lantern” is a portable table/floor light, intended for indoor use, a lamp to carry around the house and place anywhere you like – much like the traditional kerosene lamps our ancestors lit and carried through history.

"Double C-Future" by Ingo Maurer and team

We remember the first stunning OLED (organic light emitting diode) works by Ingo Maurer from the light+building in 2008. This year the German designer and manufacturer (and icon of lighting design) is presenting his new developments of OLED lightings. The lamps were designed in collaboration with the OLED – manufacturers Osram and Novaled. Like we know it from some of his former pieces Ingo Maurer does not hide the technical parts behind a casing but accentuates the beauty of the lamp`s technology.

'Scantling' by Mathias Hahn

The German born and London based designer Mathias Hahn realised the lighting series ‘Scantling’ for the Spanish manufacturer Marset. The beautiful almost archetypal family is presented at this year’s light+building in Frankfurt for the first time.

All of the movements of the fully rotating shade use arms and hinges, and its technical precision means that springs or counterweights are not necessary in order to maintain the selected position.”

'Crown' by Formfjord

How to perforate a metal sheet volume without using a costly 3D-laser cutter: Soon, during this year’s light+building in Frankfurt the Berlin based designers of Formfjord will present brand new prototypes of their newest extremely smart lighting project ‘Crown’. In fact this series of pendant lights is producible with more or less common tools. Plane sheet metal is laser cut and canted in the accordant angles. The volume accrues after putting together the two endings and fixing them with two tiny screws. The ribs are cramped by two discs on top. In order to avoid a complicated bicoloured powder coating the designers decided to use a filter which is magnetically fixed on the inside of the lamp shade and lets it shine in a decent colour – coated by light.
