5x5

The story about the 5x5 LED lamp comes together with the 5x5 chair introduced and awarded previous year. The chair's unique material characteristic required tiles’ dimensions of approximately 5x5 cm. Therefore the same dimensions were the starting point for the lamp. In order to avoid the direct form's repetition the 5x5 cm is applied in a form of rhombus, the main modular structure part of the lamp. Several lamps mounted together offer the possibility to create different lighting patterns like zig-zag, diagonal line, the shape of an arrow, or other shapes by using designer's own creativity.

Relio

Relio is the smallest and most powerful Usb light on the market, and the only one to emit light with ultra-high color rendering index (Cri 92-96). Designed, produced and sold by three 25yr-old Italian guys. Sized at just 35mm, it's the most portable package they were able to conceive: powered by ubiquitous USB, pocketable, rugged, with a tripod socket on the bottom to be mounted everywhere. Two swappable TIR optics provide a perfect, artefacts-free beam. Aimed at professionals, it's made in Italy from a solid aluminium block, hand-sanded and hand-assembled with maniacal precision.

vosled

With the glass bulb, the LED-filament and the transparent ring between the glass bulb and the socket, the vosLED looks like Edison’s classic, does, however, only get hand-warm and weighs in with only 35 g. So it opens completely new opportunities to light designers and lighting manufacturers. The combination of different materials for leading and shielding of light for design and presentation reaches a completely new dimension. At the same time it uses all the potential of the LED-technology: a 90 percent lower energy consumption, ten times the lifetime and simple recycling.

Teca

Teca is a wooden ceiling light made by blown glass, hand turned wood and metal. Each wooden lampshade is made by turning using various woods, enclosed in a bubble of blown transparent glass that levels the appearance. Elegant and exclusive for the high quality of the components, each piece is a unique and unrepeatable object. The main elements of this lamp are indeed the experience in woodturning and the fine research of the light through the wood. Each wood has its own story, its own reaction to the lathe and to the time, and only a thorough study of this story made this project possible.

Point

The lamp is inspired by the geometric entity for excellence, the point, generally represented as a circle. The lamp is a pure geometric form, and as a symbol for the ideal order triggers the visual expression clear and its specific language of form, a feeling of calm, balance and harmony. These are the sensations from which sprang the design. The collection Point is made of two table lamp formats, created to better use the strips in high efficiency LEDs to create a direct and an indirect light. The elements combine to achieve a unique element: a true and proper light sculpture.
