Plain Lighting by Jin Kuramoto

“We have expressed a visual phenomenon which produces a three-dimensional impression of given objects when combined with strong colors.
 This results in complementary colors and light emission causing it to resemble a state when the moon loses the three-dimensional impression of the sphere, and to shine similarly to a planar like mirror.”
- Jin Kuramoto

Exhibition: Complimentary Colors, by Jin Kuramoto, at L’Archivolto Libreria Galleria,
April 22-27 Milan, Italy.

New buds by Rodolfo Dordoni for Foscarini

A choice of new colours for the diffuser in blown glass with a shiny finish and design modifications that soften the shape, bringing the New Buds collection perfectly up to date with today’s trends in décor and maintaining one constant feature: Rodolfo Dordoni’s design trademark of classical elegance.

Corallo by Studio Lagranja for Pallucco

The Corallo family of lighting will be launched at Euroluce during Il Salone in Milan next month. The fluorescent light is available as either a floor lamp or a pendant and is composed of many injection-molded modular elements to create the effect of sea coral. Coloured modules can be inserted for contrast. According to Studio Lagranja, “We wanted to project a lamp that was articulated and rich at the same time, starting from a simple module that repeating itself grows just like natural structures, from simplicity to complexity.”

Berker TS Crystal Ball

The heart of the Berker Crystal Ball, in turn, is a multi-faceted, polished Swarovski crystal under which a touch-sensitive optical reflection sensor is concealed. A gentle touch – and the Crystal Ball operates lights, blinds, shutters, the bubble machine… At the same time, it is a glimmering attention-getter in every sophisticated environment.
