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.”

Airflite KINZO pays tribute to Ken Adams set design of “Dr. Strangelove“. With its giant diameter of 2.20 metres the parallels between Airflite and the typical lighting of the legendary War Room in Stanley Kubrick’s satire become obvious.
Inside the four circle segments, cleverly arranged dimmable fluorescent tubes create an intelligent light distribution – 70% of light shine upwards to be reflected by the ceiling, 30% shine downwards.
