Fields Wall Sculpture and Light from Foscarini

Simple, essential shapes, dampened by rich and intense hues. The design concept originates from a suggestive and moving panoramic, almost aerial, view that pays tribute to the designer’s homeland of Mancha, an area of Spain steeped in contrasts that extends over the fields as far as the eye can see. The lamp is composed of methacrylate and aluminium sheets that diffuse the light creating a range of lighting effects on the wall.

Mercury Light by Ross Lovegrove

A ceiling fixture that places a floating assembly of large pebbles below a simple aluminium disc. These in turn reflect each other, bouncing light between their taught biomorphic surfaces and reflecting the environment around them. During the day the piece acts as a sculptural object reflecting the dynamics of natural light and the movement of people around them.

Kirchschlag—Mysterious Light from Atelier Areti

Within the frame of two recent architectural projects, the pendant range Kirchschlag was developed as a light that is both decorative and highly functional – a combination that is rare, with most lights falling into either one or the other cathegory. It was made in close relationship with highly skilled glass blowers and engravers as well as lighting professionals, to create a light that unites the beauty of expert workmanship and advances in new technology.
