The ceiling version of the Mercer lamp joins this range of lighting fixtures that stand out for their subtle reversal of roles: the cloth shade is inside a structure of transparent blown glass. The glass delicately protects the shade in natural pleated cotton or in a sophisticated pearl white fabric, at the same time as producing additional reflections. The main aim of this lamp is to give the ceiling of a room a delicate, warm glow, at the same time as providing illumination.
The concept of Sun is inspired by the early hours dawn, when the light of the sun plays along the horizon as it begins to appear. The Yonoh Studio played with superimposing materials to achieve this effect, creating a light with a luminous glow that is capable of transporting us to that precise moment.
The light that emanates from Sun creates a very special atmosphere, capturing our eyes and soothing our souls. It is a presence that brings personality and character to the space around it. The fixture’s design does not forget that its prominent place in the space necessitates a certain formal balance: it is simultaneously prominent yet understated, a point of interest that doesn’t steal the limelight.
A metal case and concave polycarbonate dish surround the LED light source, nestled in a blown-glass sphere. Each of Sun’s different materials reflects the light in its own way, much as what happens at the exact moment when the night’s darkness gives way to the light.
Maranga is the name of a fruit, an imaginary fruit: exquisite, tempting, succulent. It reinterprets Scandinavian style in the essentiality of its shape and its rational use of lighting to generate a warm, comfortable atmosphere.
The shade is made up of 32 slice-like pieces which fit together to allow chinks of light to escape. This interplay of light and dark generates an effect which is rich in shades of light and prevents glare, while an opening at the bottom fitted with a diffuser gives out direct light downwards.
A good design is one that lasts over time. This is the case with the Plaff-on! a lamp that has been illuminating ceilings and walls for almost ten years. This very functional collection has been updated and now its new versions – in three sizes of 16, 33 and 50 cm in diameter and in black finish – include the IP protection grade. Its screens are waterproof, designed to illuminate any outdoor or indoor space, including bathrooms.
Its white blown glass diffuser seems to float, detached from the ring that surrounds it, and its light filters down creating a luminous halo around it. It radiates simplicity, while it’s useful.
Exuberant even when turned off, the richness of the light issuing from the Discocó lamp provides direct downward illumination along with a dramatic play of lights and soft shadows.
Its detailed study of incident light and light that bounces off of both sides of the disks provide the lamp with an appealing gradation of light nuances and depth. Further reflections dance off the chrome-covered semi-sphere at the core, where the disks are anchored. When the light is turned off, it retains its attractive presence, hinting at the expansion of energy that is fully expressed when it is turned on.
