‘Kyoto’ model from the ‘Candil’ table lamp series by Alvaro Catalán de Ocón; photo by Alfonso Herranz
Madrid-based designer Alvaro Catalán de Ocón has realised this series of decorative table lamps whose composition ‘reflects the different physical properties necessary to make the electrical apparatus work.’ Composed of three simple parts in different materials: copper and brass which act as conductors and wood which has been used due to its insulative properties, the collection comprises three different models named after three cities: Madrid, Milan and Kyoto. The series was first presented earlier this year at Spazio Rossana Orlandi in Milan. (more…)
‘Mutation Series’ by Maarten De Ceulaer; photo by Nico Neefs
Brussels-based designer Maarten De Ceulaer has realised this rather curious, biomorphic collection of foam furniture called ‘Mutation Series.’ Likened by the designer to a ‘virus or bacteria that has grown dramatically out of scale’, the series encompasses multiple seating designs with each piece being unique due to the irregularity of the design pattern. The collection was on show at Spazio Rossana Orlandi in Milan. (more…)
‘Moire’ lamp by Marc Sarrazin for Petite Friture
Known for their playful, out-of-ordinary collections, the French design company Petite Friture has collaborated with young Parisian designer Marc Sarrazin on this series of mesh lamps called ‘Moire’. Available in three sizes and two colours, the light can be either hung as a pendant, used as a floor or table lamp, or fixed to a wall. ‘Moire’ was presented as part of Petite Friture’s new collection at Spazio Rossana Orlandi in Milan.

‘Contrast’ side tables by BCXSY
Israeli-born Boaz Cohen and Japanese-born Sayaka Yamamoto, the designer duo behind the Eindhoven-based practice BCXSY have realised this series of simple side tables called ‘Contrast.’ Part of a three-piece collection developed by BCXSY in collaboration with an Irish maritime cultural and educational centre Meitheal Mara, the construction of table was inspired by the traditional boat-building process while its clean lines and geometric form seem to hint at the Bauhaus aesthetics.

'38' by Omer Arbel for Bocci; photo by Spencer Hung
Following his ’28’ series of pendant lamps, the Vancouver- based architect and designer Omer Arbel has realised this series of striking lighting elements for the Canadian lighting specialists Bocci. Employing a similar technique to that originally developed by Arbel for the ’28’ collection, in this series ‘large glass spheres are blown, and then a multitude of white cavities are introduced into them haphazardly,intentionally intersecting and colliding with each other .’ ’38’ was showcased in a special large-scale lighting installation during this year’s Salone del Mobile at Spazio Rossana Orlandi. Watch ’38’ being produced in the video below.

Sketch of the 'Swell' pen holder by Luca Nichetto
There seems to be no stopping the Venetian designer Luca Nichetto. At least judging by the recent edition of Milan’s Salone del Mobile where this acclaimed industrial designer who divides his time between his native Italy and Sweden, launched no less than 17 brand new products for 11 international labels such as Cassina, DePadova, Established&Sons and Foscarini to name just a few. Among those numerous tables, sofas, chairs or lamps, all of which bore Nichetto’s signature clean lines, bold colours and subtly witty and humorous character, there was also this gracefully simple and neat collection of concrete desk accessories.

'Surface Tension Lamp' by Front for Booo; photo courtesy of Front
Late afternoon on Sunday, just prior to our departure from the sun-drenched Milan, we have paid a visit to what without a doubt was one of the most inspiring and eclectic exhibitions to take place as part of Fuorisalone during this year’s Salone del Mobile fair. The place we have in mind is Spazio Rossana Orlandi. Tucked away behind a green courtyard, in a picturesque building in the Magenta Neighbourhood, the two-storey shop and an adjacent exhibition space were once again transformed into a kaleidoscope of beautiful, unique and frequently curious objects. Beautiful, unique and decisively curious also happens to fit perfectly when describing the latest light bulb devised by the Swedish design group Front for a new Dutch company, Booo. (more…)
