Schemer Seven: Euroluce 2013
The biennial lighting show returned to Milan this April. Prepare to be dazzled by our choice from a spectacular array of lighting.
Flos’s Running Magnet lights will appeal to architects and designers, with its structural 12-millimetre profile which is completely integrated into the wall. Magnetic luminous fixtures can are positioned all along the track, with advanced-technology low voltage LEDs.
German industrial designer Ingo Maurer’s quirky Knot table and floor lamp would make a good bedside light choice. It is made using three-dimensional printing technology in Poly- amide, steel, aluminium. The company also launched LED wallpaper at the show.
Renowned for its glasswork, Lasvit did not dissapoint with pieces like Bamboo by Czech artist Jitka Kamencová Skuhravá. The chandelier is made of individual crsytal and glass blown hollow tubes which imitate the surface of a bamboo stem.
Slamp continues its experimental outlook with some exciting collaborations that include Zaha Hadid, who has used 50 individual layers of Cristalflex®(a techno-polymer patented by Slamp) to create the sculptural Aria Collection.
The first ever table lamp collection from Swarovski includes Esme and Tybault, both designed by New York based designer Harry Allen. Esme is available in Black, Gold Greige, Chrome Brushed and features multifaceted hanging, crystal briolettes.
Set by J. Ll. Xucla for Vibia sits perfectly between the idea of decoration and lighting. Inspired by the way light was cast by a lamp post in his garden, Xucla designed these mobile components that can be arranged for both function and art.
The Artemide stand wowed with a very strong and wide range of products.A focal point was Ephemeris, which diffuses and reflects the light from a single 60W LED source at the top of the mirrored pendant through the six radiating, recycled aluminium chambers.
