When two design events as exciting as Euroluce and Salone del Mobile run alongside each other, you can expect to be inspired. You can also expect to spot the trends currently captivating the eyes and minds of designers around the world. Perhaps most prevalent was a preoccupation with circles and semicircles. Daniel Rybakken’s Compendium Circle, for example, combines up to three rings of different diameters to create an array of configurations. London-based designer Michael Anastassiades continued the conversation with three new additions to his Mobile Chandeliers collection, which seeks to identify timeless qualities of objects.
Finnish designer Timo Ripatti updated his U-Light collection for Axo Light by integrating an LED into a series of circular aluminium frames to produce a soft, dimmable white light. Meanwhile, Francesco Librizzi, a young Sicilian architect working in Milan, debuted the Setareh table lamp for Fontana Arte. It’s composed of a sphere in hand-blown white satin glass, suspended within a thin metal circular structure.
