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.

Lampscapes by Frederik Roijé

Described as familiar shades melted into one, thus creating a lampscape, Frederik Roijé’s lighting concept is a fresh approach in illumination.

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.

Belux Scope Task Lamp by Hannes Wettstein

Hannes Wettstein has designed a family of lights called Scope which perfects the principle of balance. With “easy move”, Belux developed and patented a new type of completely invisible balance mechanism. Where other work lights make the mechanism visible, in Scope this is accommodated invisibly in the interior of the upper and lower arm: “I wanted to impart something magical in form to the magic operating mode”, explains Wettstein.
Scope has proved to have gentle adjustability but still remains stable in any position. The ingenious balance and high agility of the lights challenge you to plumb the large working radius – deep and long tables can also be optimally illuminated.

Foscarini Tropico Ellipse Pendant Lamp by Giulio Iacchetti

Tropico is a collection of lamps in various shapes and sizes which play with light and shadow. Composed of diamond-shaped individual modules, the decorative features recall a classic crystal chandelier, with its polished glass elements.
The diamond-shaped individual modules are available in either a crystalline “ice” version, with the clarity and light transmission, or in an opaque, off version, which gives a warm, aged and exotic-looking effect. Tropico allows for a choice between a cool violet or warm orange to create completely different moods.
