DESIGN FORMULA LIGHTING

Amp pendant lamp for Normann Copenhagen


Caigo by Marco Zito for Foscarini


Egg by Enrico Franzolini for Pallucco


Arne by Santa & Cole


Notch by Michael Anastassiades for Flos


When it comes to lighting the home, there are no perfect rights or


punishable wrongs. The complexity of designs such Mesh and Match are offset by a wealth of pendants that are stripped back to the bare (but beautiful) essentials in response to consumer demand for simplicity. Notch light by Michael Anastassiades for Flos is an excellent example


of this meld of understatement and beauty. The way the light is hung is champion here: a simple globe-shaped light is suspended from a brushed brass ‘chain’, evoking a piece of precious jewellery. Anastassiades explains his inspiration: “If you look at the definition of


‘pendant’, it speaks of both worlds: ‘A piece of jewellery that hangs from a chain worn round the neck’ and ‘a light designed to hang from the ceiling’.” Pendant designs may be increasingly unconventional, but traditional


craftsmanship continues to be the first port of call for many designers. The result is a sense of old world meets new. Egg by Enrico Franzolini for Pallucco is a beautiful suspension light that recalls the ancient technique of blowing glass into a metal cage. Equally


arresting is Caigo by Marco Zito for Foscarini, which brings together Murano- blown glass and LED technology. British brand Ochre has launched its Mirage pendant lights, cocoons of coloured, woven stainless steel and organza that create a semi-transparent glow. The artisan technique used to create the shade from this lustrous metallic fabric has a touch of the milliner’s art. Of course, given that the design industry is always looking forward, it would


be remiss not to shine a spotlight on designs unveiled at the various exhibitions so far in 2016. Davide Groppi introduced PoPuP at Light & Building in Frankfurt earlier this


year. It’s just one of a number of portable lighting solutions made possible by advancements in battery technology. “PoPuP is a project that combines two of my greatest passions: light and


music,” Groppi explains. The upshot is a battery-operated table lamp with a built-in speaker that streams music wirelessly. Light and music have different controls and therefore can function separately. Perhaps spurred on by the success of Ferruccio Laviani’s Battery lamp
