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.

Max Sauze Cassiope Hanging Light

The bent aluminium strip reflectors bring out a dramatic mixture of light and patterns on the wall and floor; it also works when the light is turned off.

Airflite by KINZO for idee.design.licht

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.
