Translucence

This design references a quirkier side of lighting, offering a range of non-uniform, asymmetric blown glass forms that feature a hidden light source, emanating from a selection of intricate acrylic centres. Each can be viewed as a bespoke hand-crafted item yet belong to an overall aesthetic that ultimately explores the relationship between light, both natural and integral, and the singular beautiful properties of overlaying layers of twisted optical glass. Initially offered as a stand-alone pendant, future plans include table-top variations, wall lights and multi-array feature chandeliers.

Cling

Cling is a floor lamp by Robert Dabi. Emerging from the floor plate, the pole seamlessly wraps around a spotless LED ring made of a slim aluminium profile in a diameter of 55 cm. Within the area between pole and the frame holding the light ring, a flexible section is incorporated. This makes it possible to freely move or tilt the ring and thereby adapt the appearance of the lamp to its' surrounding.

Siro

Design should be understandable, sensitive and necessary. It's terrific how a road sign is readable by everyone or how an object recalls of a particular period of people life. Solving and interpreting without leaving behind respect for environment: this is good design with hope to reconnect human beings to nature. Siro is a table lamp, composed by a hemisphere and a disc, unleashing a radiant light toward the inside. When observed from the front, the lamp seems to consist of two bi-dimensional shapes, creating an illusion of perfect equilibrium.

Inspiration to solve this problem was found in one of the concepts of modern partial physics, supersymmetry, which explains how the substance can transform into matter. A lighting fixture was designed to help people to switch between their life essences by the simple move and magnetic click. The lamp transforms from a vertical source of soft light to a horizontal source of concentrated light for work, creation, and close communication.
