w102 Task Lamp by David Chipperfield for Wästberg

The w102 task lamp references an archetypal personal desk lamp for home or office use, and seeks to offer a fresh interpretation of the familiar on a domestic scale. The lamp is predominantly made from brass – a material commonly associated with lights, though not so widely used today – with details in rubber. The intention was to create a simple form with a clear distinction between a base, a single arm and a lamp head. The lamp has no visible joints and minimal directional movement, without compromising its function.

Starbrick by Studio Olafur Eliasson for Zumtobel

Studio Olafur Eliasson is an experimental laboratory located in Berlin. Led by renowned Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, it functions as an interdisciplinary space, generating fresh dialogues between art and its surroundings. A new product designed for Zumtobel is a modular lighting system called Starbrick.

Starbrick consists of injection-moulded polycarbonate components with a matte black finish. The semi-transparent, yellow, reflective surfaces at its core are backlit by LEDs. The light from the outward-facing LED Boards is concentrated and evenly distributed via polycarbonate refractors.

Crinolina Lamps by Susanne Philippson for Pallucco

Crinolina plays with the expressive abstraction of the old fashioned hooped skirt from past centuries – translated into a unique and modern lighting design by the Berlin-based designer, Susanne Philippson. The characteristic of the lamp is its outer lampshade which plays between open and closed surfaces. Viewed from various angles the outer shade shows both symmetric and almost deconstructivist asymmetric appearance.
