Trinna by Tina Leung for Innermost

‘Trinna is a concept designed to allow multiples of the triangle to be built up into larger geometric patterns. Whilst the simple geometric minimalism of a lone unit creates a useful and beautiful pendant fitting it is when the design is grouped that it really merits attention. Tina also expored the relationship between what’s on the ceiling above a lamp and the unit itself; often the 2 forms seem unrelated. With Trinna every fold of metal and seam has purpose, be it to support, feed cable or add strength. Nothing that is not needed has been allowed.’

Torch Bunch by Sylvian Willenz for Established&Sons

‘Made from a moulded textured plastic, the ‘Torch Light’ comes in three versions: the small cone, the small rounded and the large cone. All sizes can be suspended from the ceiling in single units, arranged in bunches of 10 or 20, or used singularly on a tabletop or in the corner of a room. ‘Torch Light’, like much of Sylvain’s work, is inspired by archetypal objects – in this case, the simple silhouette of a typical hand-held torch or car headlight. ‘Torch Light’ is offered in three different colours, including black.’

“This is how I like to think of objects. What would they be like as shadows? How can they be normal and recognisable, yet slightly sophisticated and elegant? It’s playful, graphic… like an icon.” Sylvain Willenz

Sofa Lamp by CuldeSac with Héctor Serrano for Moooi

‘The Sofa lamp is inspired by the famous Chester Sofa. Thinking about the Chester on a social level, it automatically transmits luxury with it’s recognizable aesthetics … a feeling of warmth, the central point of the social interaction of a living room in which people come together… this essence is captured in the Sofa Lamp.’

Fragile Future II by Design Drift

‘Fragile Future II is a modulair light system overgrowing the wall. One module is a visible circuit with little lights. This module is easy to attach to the next one (in seven different ways), while the switch-leg will continue. So it is possible to create a composition from just a few, up to 50 modules, according to the space and atmosphere. Fragile Future comes with two different types of light. One is an exclusive version and uses leds in real dandelion (the seeds are glued with special glue on the led one by one by hand). The other is less fragile and shockproof.’

Tall&Tiny by Alice Rosignoli

‘Tall&Tiny are two sticker-lamps in Vinyl foil, that answer the desire/need for home furniture while considering the problem of ever-decreasing living space.’

Soil Lamp by Marieke Staps

‘Free and environmentally friendly energy forever and ever. The lamp runs on mud. The metabolism of biological life produces enough electricity to keep a LED lamp burning. The mud is enclosed in various cells. These cells contain copper and zinc that conduct the electricity. The more cells there are, the more electricity they generate. This technique offers a wealth of possibilities. The only thing the lamp needs is a splash of water every now and then.’

Marieke Staps

Butterfly Light by Vinta

‘This light came from the idea of folding a piece of paper. The function of its adjustment of light and the space created by that are a result of simple action of one surface (the panel) being divided by two. The two panels with slight shifts to each other at its closed position remind a user to open this object up. This light gives the poetic theme to the space like a butterfly flying around with silence.’
