Constructed from post-consumer soda bottles, the Bubble Chandelier was originally inspired by the cell-like shape of soap bubbles. Elle Decor India calls the Bubble Chandelier “…an upcycled wonder, transforming the used, old and ordinary into new and highly covetable.” The Bubble Chandelier is made from 60 two-liter soda bottles, with each piece cut and connected with aluminum rivets.
A suspended pendant consisting of differing sizes of formed aluminium sheets. These are placed one over the other giving the fitting a dynamic look similar to a wave’s. The lamp is located inside the blown glass cylinder in the centre. The light reflection makes a suggestive play of light and shadow according to the perspective. Matt white painted pendant and table lamps.
The extruded lights (‘EXTL’ for short), are a pair of small multi-faceted pendant lights produced in aluminium and finished with either a matt black, gold or silver anodised lustre. Both lights are manufactured out of a single length of three millimetre thick aluminium, dissected at varying angles allowing for two styles to be produced from one section of extruded material.
Lighting brand Flos presents a new family of lamps designed by Patricia Urquiola on the occasion of the 2012 London Design Festival. Taking its name from the French word for ‘Armadillo’, the ‘Tatou’ series draws its influences from that of armour, particularly that of classic antique Japan, offering dynamism, lightness and flexibility.
The SHY Light (taking its name from the initials of the designer’s grandmother) uses the spare beauty of thin LED tubes to define the edges of its shape; in this way the function of the piece is created by its form, and vice-versa. It is also inspired by crystalline structures, both by the shapes they take as well as their growth.
