LZF Lamps

Design

Shine On

Innovative lighting from Euroluce, the world’s premier show held every year in Milan.
By Jorge S. Arango

Architect and designer Ramón Esteve evokes piano keys with his Black Note collection of fixtures for LZF Lamps. LED lights concealed inside wood veneer cylinders are placed rhythmically along a metal bar, rising and falling as if on a musical stave. $1,990–$2,990; lzf-lamps.com

Innermost

Designed by Melissa Yip for Innermost, Bud is the company’s first rechargeable cordless design. Naoto Fukasawa’s Muji electric kettle inspired the design, a plastic base in one of six cheery colors cradling a round bulb that is adjustable by a three-step dimmer function. $125; innermost.net

Pulpo

Wunderkind thirtysomething Sebastian Herkner (Designer of the Year at Paris’ prestigious Maison et Objet design show) created the Stellar line of pendant lighting for Pulpo. Bases and handblown glass bubbles with a frosted acetate finish (like the Stellar Grape fixture shown) come in a variety of color combinations. $510–$3,250; pulpoproducts.com

Arturo Alvarez

Mytilus, a new pendant and wall lamp from Arturo Alvarez, evokes the species of marine mussel for which it is named. A wire mesh shade in the shape of a shell encloses the shining, pearl-like bulb. From $1,275; arturo-alvarez.com

Foscarini

Architect and designer Ferruccio Laviani wanted to “get back to glass” when designing UpTown for Foscarini, table and floor lamps that stand vertically like skyscrapers. The Art Deco and Memphis design movements inspired the use of PMMA and chrome-plated metal overlaid with screen-printed glass layers of solid yellow, red, and blue. From $4,395; foscarini.com

Lasvit

Mária Čulenová worked with Czech-based Lasvit to create Aura, a chandelier of handblown glass and metal that depicts lunar phases. Like the moon, the glass shapes reflect light rather than emit it and their textured surfaces resemble a lunar landscape. $89,000; lasvit.com

Lladro

Iconic Spanish porcelain house Lladró has teamed up with Dutch designer Marcel Wanders to introduce Nightbloom, a matte porcelain lighting collection that includes pendant, table, wall, and floor lamps. Inspired by flower petals blowing in the wind, each component is carefully placed to produce a soft glow from the LED center. $2,150–$5,100; lladro.com

CTO Lighting

Artés Collective, a new line of pendant, floor, and wall lamps from CTO Lighting, fuses honed alabaster with minimalist beams of bronze and satin brass details. They can be hung singly or in clusters as an installation. Single pendants $2,700–$4,045, cluster of three pendants $8,760–$10,785; ctolighting.co.uk

Swarovski Crystal Palace

Dutch-born Marjan van Aubel is a solar designer interested in sustainability, design, and technology. Her Cyanometer for Swarovski Crystal Palace forms a ring of white opal crystals that collect light and emit a bluish and reddish glow. Available as a ceiling, floor, or wall light. $13,500–$17,000; swarovski.com

FLOS/Stefania Giorgi

Overlap, Michael Anastassiades’ new pendant for FLOS, employs a spray-on polymer technique first used by the company in the 1960s with Tobia Scarpa and the Castiglioni brothers. Perpendicularly anchored rings appear to be pushing through the thin, white coating, creating simple yet sensual curves. $2,995–$3,495; usa.flos.com

Gabriel Scott

Luna, by Canada-based studio Gabriel Scott, is a modular fixture combining tube glass, metal hardware, and smoked and colored glass globes. Inspired by the moon’s diffuse light, it can be infinitely configured—stacked vertically as a pendant or sprawled horizontally as a chandelier—depending on the assembly of parts. From $850; gabriel-scott.com

Louis Poulsen

Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson’s new OE Quasi Light for Louis Poulsen is a juxtaposition of complex geometries. The pendant lamp has an outer aluminum icosahedron shell (20-faceted) with cutouts showing a glowing polycarbonate core (12-faceted). LED lights on the inner vertices of the shell illuminate the core, which warmly reflects light back out into the room. $18,000; louispoulsen.com
