| Leave a comment

In the kitchen and especially on the table, the right lamp.

Lighting the dining table in the right way is very important; It is around this table that you meet with family and friends, that you spend evenings chatting in company or organizing intimate dinners of couple.

The atmosphere therefore to be created on this table must be particular, the lighting should be carefully studied in order to give the necessary light to perform the functions but not annoy or fatigue the diners; The dining table is the place par excellence for conviviality, meetings with family and friends.

The types of lamp that best fit to brighten the dining table are suspended or grounded, directed on the center of the table; In addition to this punctual light then you will have to have in the room another diffused light that creates the basic lighting.

With regard to pendant lamps, they must be centered on the table, they can be a central or different of smaller dimensions distributed along the central axis of the dining table; You have to pay special attention to the height of the lighting body.

The intensity of the light must be studied in such a way as not to be dazzling but not too low and above all it must have a sufficiently wide radius to illuminate the whole table but not exaggerated because it would risk to annoy or create bad shadows on Faces of the diners.

The ideal height of the lamp from the table top is 70-120 cm, depending on the type of lamp and therefore the cone of light that emits as well as the size of the table; Many models can be adjusted in height in order to be modified according to the needs and number of the diners; This type of lamp is particularly suitable for rooms with high ceilings.

Light up the dining table

Shiny has recently proposed two novelties regarding the suspensions particularly suitable for the dining table: Mai and Lea.

Mai is a pendant or ceiling lamp characterized by a direct and diffused light, it has a painted metal structure and the lower part is closed with a transparent prismatic methacrylate surface that improves the luminous yield, giving an optimum light For the dining area.

The light sources are electronic fluorescent from 40W + 22W; It is available in either internal or external glossy white finish or in the glossy white version on the outside and glossy orange inside or even red metallic or black glossy outside and white glossy inside.

Different colors that allow to adapt to different contexts and furnishings, the glossy color contributes not to weigh down the object and the reflections make it lighter.

The dimensions of the suspension are diameter 50 cm and Height 157 cm, the body is 17 cm high.

Lea is available with suspension, ceiling or wall; The structure is in glossy white painted metal, copper and black with a diffuser in the lower part in Opal PMMA.

The power supply is electronic and the suspension dimensions are 50 x H 160 cm.

Some exciting novelties for the dining area have also been presented by Moooi, such as Mistral, a PVC pendant lamp with an integrated fan inside.

The structure is formed by a chromed body, wooden and PVC blades and glass diffused, in dark brown, white with yellow blades.

It can be positioned at different heights ranging from 107 cm to 20 cm.

It is a very young and dynamic lamp, the shape is classic but the modern finishes and the fan inside remote controlled with a remote control make it unique and very particular.

Whether in the home or office area, where you work on your computer or have to consult documents, it is essential to be able to rely on adequate lighting.

In the summer, in fact, the long days help us to work, relying for many hours to the only natural light. But in the other months of the year or where the desk is placed in a corner not really exposed to light, or even when the houses are dark, it is crucial to intervene creating lighting points designed precisely to turn on the work table.

The table lamps can have different shapes, sizes and heights, can be fixed or adjustable, thanks to the extensible arm. In any case the choice of work lighting should not be neglected. In addition to functionality, we can find many innovative and design proposals, able to combine aesthetic taste and adequate performance.

Transparent table Lamps

An original proposal, very airy and certainly appreciated by those who follow the lines of the most trendy fashion home or want an iconic table light is the transparent lamp.

The advantages of this type of desk lights are many: in the first place they are adapted to different environments, from classic to modern furnishings.

A transparent lamp creates a pleasant contrast if placed on an antique wooden desk, as on a secretariat, but it will also be perfectly located in a minimal and contemporary studio.

The versatility of these objects continues to please a lot: it gives the idea not to clutter and close the space, because at first glance it is almost invisible, until it turns to the need, emanating a clear light and direct on the workstation.

A first solution is the Bourgie table lamp designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Kartell. This pure design object is still one of the most appreciated and most sold pieces by the company.

To conquer, of this lamp, is the magic and successful combination of Baroque, rich, important and irony form and the modernity of plexiglass. The lamp develops vertically with care in detail, to return an opulent object and strong personality.

To overstay the whole composition is the lampshade, made with pleated workmanship, beautiful to see and surprising for the game of reflections that creates when it is on.

This lamp is not static, but you can choose between three different possible heights, from 68 to 78 cm, depending on the beam of light we want to get, more or less close to the sheet or the computer.

In addition to the Home Office area, you can find a good location even on a dresser, to create a light and atmospheric point of passage, perhaps in the hallway, or used in the bedroom or on a table in the living area as a complementary and scenographic light.

Of Kartell is also the Taj lamp, designed by the designer of the previous proposal, but diametrically opposed by line and spirit. Modern, minimal and no frills, it consists of a curved line, as a three-dimensional sign.

Taj works with LED lights: a powerful and energy-saving light comes out of a lamp so discreet. The transparent variant is called naked, to recall a bare, light, essential and design trait.

Those who love transparencies will also appreciate the new generation version of Fat-boy’s Table lamp.

Transloetje, like her sisters in other colors, recalls for the simple form the table lamps or bedside tables of the past, but revisited in a modern key.

The characteristic is the fact that the lamp is wireless and therefore portable, practical to move from one room to another to make light where and when needed: on the desk when working, in the living room for reading, in the room as Abatjour.

In addition to the transparent version here considered is available in other color variants.

The light bulb is the real protagonist, at sight, as it is placed in the center of the structure and stands out in transparency. The switch is integrated and the lamp operates on battery. All in PVC, both transparent and with pastel color nuances, always clear, it lends itself both to a place inside the house and outside.

Extensible Table Lamps

The lamps traditionally most common for the desk are those with swivel and extensible arm, designed to illuminate the work area closely.

The volley aluminum model of FontanaArte designed by Odo Faulkner is suitable for those looking for a classic but colorful, modern and certainly useful solution for the work.

Although rather simple in the line, it boasts an advanced technology based on touch sensors that serve to turn it on, turn it off and adjust the intensity of the light beam and LED light. Accompanying the arm you can point the light precisely on what we are interested in luminary, choosing also the intensity according to the natural light that changes with the passing of the hours of the day.

The softer accompanies, while the more intense level of the four replaces the natural light when the sun goes away. Little cumbersome, agile, intelligent and light is a solution of great value.

Very original, in combining tradition and novelty, it is the lamp Wood Muuto, a reinterpretation in an ironic and innovative key of the lamp used by architects, with an extensible arm to better adapt to the needs of those who work at the table.

All in wood recalls the northern European tradition, in Scandinavian style, very current in the interior design of these last years: it has details of style at sight, as the screws that stand out in contrast and the power cable in colored rubber.

Original lamps for the desk

Satisfied with the more traditional office workers and lovers of transparent design, we discover some original models of table lamps, able to fulfill their function, also contributing to furnish the room with taste and a touch of novelty.

The Draw lamp by Doiy, is really an unusual choice: although made of ceramic, it contains a light bulb in the light bulb. In fact, the real flash that radiates the light emerges from a hole placed on a ceramic tablet.
The optical effect is really innovative, creative and fun. But the original aspects do not end here: The table lamp can be customized in a thousand different ways because the perforated surface where the light comes out is a white table, made to be drawn and decorated.

You can indulge and return children by choosing to hatch the drawing or the preferred silhouette, which can change as many times as we want.

The appropriate pen is cancellable and is directly in the packaging of the Draw Lamp.

We conclude with a very special object, the IC T1 table lamp proposed by the Flos brand and designed by Michael Anastassiades. Here the object does not recall the traditional lamps with extendable arm, but it represents a unicum.
The light radiates from an opaque blown glass sphere, a sort of crystal ball that reminds the world of artists who perform by moving and dancing on their body, with smooth and perfect movements. The result is sophisticated but sober, versatile and tasteful, suitable for those looking for something really different from the usual.

The sphere, which seems almost suspended, is supported and accompanied by a very thin and elegant brass stem. It seems to be able to keep it in balance by serving the fulcrum of composition.

Euroluce, the lighting exhibition par excellence, takes place every two years in conjunction with the Salone del Mobile in Milan; There are many novelties for the 2013 edition (9-14 April), in particular the concept of hand made, made in Italy and eco-compatibility, combined with elegance and extravagance.

The Home & Lighting porcelains focus on contemporary suggestions that, however, dialogue and interact with tradition; Among the novelties presented at Euroluce is the new Palazzo Vecchio collection, which is inspired by the decorations on the geometry of the coffered ceilings typical of Renaissance Florence.

These lamps, however, manage to adapt very well to contemporary contexts; They are made entirely by hand by skilled craftsmen, according to the tradition hand Made in Italy, in porcelain, with square shapes very difficult to realize.

The Palazzo Vecchio collection includes lamps, appliques and furnishing accessories such as cachepot clocks and centerpieces; The chandeliers, from 8 to 40 lights are designed for private furnishings but also for larger rooms.

The new lamps presented by Exnovo, for the first time present at Euroluce, are characterized by a suggestive design, between these Saturn hanging, night hanging and Spring hanging, designed by wild Armani and available both in modular modules and in version Single, made of Sintered polyamide.

They are original, innovative but also functional lamps, produced through Industrial 3d Printing Technologies, which are able to create particular atmospheres, unique, magical and modern scenographies; The particular shape of spring hanging lamp, for example, resembles a flying saucer suspended in space.

The light, which filters from the very complex texture of the surface, makes it a special object, unique, rich in facets and details.

Eco-sustainability and tradition

Instead, they focus on the eco-compatibility of the Green Line eclectic lamps, presented at the Fiera da Masio, designed by designers Gianpaolo Rampolla and Andrea Liguori.

The versions are two: the “Lib” (two suspensions, a floor lamp and a table lamps), has a light and delicate shape reminiscent of the wings of a dragonfly. The lam round (two suspensions and a table lamp) have a soft and essential shape: an empty circle from which the light simply escapes.

For these new projects presented at the Salone 2018, Masio decided to use only environmentally friendly materials, such as natural turned oak wood and the LED with warm light, combined with Egyptian crystal diamonds, characterized by Special effects that amplify the refraction, creating a flashing effect.

The Dropop lights appear as brilliant, colourful and fresh drops, to remember a light spring rain: Created by the change, unleash and Turini designers are available in infinite compositions thanks to the modular structure, to the many colors and weight content that allows installation on any surface.

Masio combines modernity and contemporaneity inspired by Pop art, with unique effects thanks to the luminous drops that play with the light of the LED and the color; A special attention to eco-sustainability is combined with this aesthetic research.

They bring back in time the novelties that Karman presents to Euroluce 2018 demonstrating how the past and the tradition can give an added value to the present telling stories and passions: inspired by the chandeliers with lampshades in fabric of yesteryear, the Karman’s Life lamps have a nostalgic look and a bit retro, but are made with cutting edge technology.

The torn and ruined fabric takes on a vintage air, but in reality it is the result of a semi-industrial process with which the fabric is first dyed and worked on the laser to obtain the design and then is treated manually to make breakages and mending.

Finally it is washed with a stone wash process and sprayed with a special pigment that gives the fabric the particular effect used and the object appears so lived, almost familiar, welcoming.
