Bird spot­ting

Identity - - FOCUS -

Na­ture al­ways pro­vides in­spi­ra­tion, and this year de­sign­ers brought her to­gether with modern ma­te­ri­als to cre­ate some stand­out pieces at Euroluce. Yanzi, de­signed by Chi­nese duo Neri & Hu for Artemide, is a light­weight lamp that can ei­ther be sus­pended or used as a floor lamp. Slen­der steel rods pro­vide the perch for ‘birds’, with brushed-brass bod­ies and globe-shaped light bulbs for heads.

Mean­while, French de­signer Christophe Pil­let pro­duced Plume for Oluce. This fam­ily of ta­ble and floor lamps fea­tures a rec­tan­gu­lar base supporting a slim stem that draws a curve in the air and ends in a feather-shaped lamp­shade. The fin­ish­ings cho­sen for the col­lec­tion nod to ‘50s de­sign – think matt black for the base and stem, and brushed gold for the shade.
