Spazio Rossana Orlandi:

Ricochet light and Coherence light is conceptual projects researching light and the reflection of light. They continues the experimentation of Colour light (2010-2011) and Light Tray (2011-2012) as the exploded concept of a lamp, formed not only of multiple components, but by multiple objects too. At the same time the Ricochet light is inspired by the shift of the direction of light explored by the Right Angle Mirror (2011). The Coherence light on the other hand talks about light being another object you place on the table. Next to cutlery and dishes, you also set the table with the light source. This light source illuminates the massive dome suspended above, diffusing and softly reflecting the light back to the table. (Both lights with 10W LED light source).

The Single Flower Vase is conceived with the idea of simplifying the vase from something esthetic on its own, down to a simple plate; shifting the focus over

to the flower. A thin support structure is added

for support.

Luceplan Temporary Design Gallery:

Counterbalance light was presented in 2011 and will this year be launched by Luceplan Spa. The idea of a wall-mounted, counterbalanced lamp is made possible here through the use of cogwheels. Force is effectively reflected, allowing both counterweight and lamp to occupy the same space. The lamp's components also become two-dimensional graphic elements in a dynamic installation; counterweight and gears form stark circles intersected by lines of tubing. (14,5W LED light source with 800 lumen)

Cocktail with Luceplan at via Procaccini 18 at the 19th of April from 19:00.
