Just as jewellery adds the finishing touches to an outfit, so do some lights add embellishment as well as light. Take Alysoid by Japanese designer Ryosuke Fukusada for Axo Light, for instance: it’s composed of necklace-like draped chains available in glossy black nickel or natural brass. The collection is made up of four different models – small, medium and two large versions – which can be used alone or in a group.
Filo by Andrea Anastasio for Foscarini was born out of the desire to deconstruct a table lamp. The result is a conical-shaped lampshade in porcelain that channels light via an electric cable decorated with colourful Murano glass baubles (a detail that recalls jewellery design). The cable is hooked onto a metal stand, allowing the individual elements to be fully appreciated.
