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.
