Tom Hancocks‘s LOOP lamp for Atelier de Troupe was inspired by the California design firm’s existing ethos, says Tom, conveying classical design, while still feeling recognizable and contemporary. ”The design process was smooth and stimulating, as I didn’t have to defer much from the continued sculptural studies of my own work – basic Euclidean point, line, and form relationships. But figuring out how to make sure it expressed the same functionality and personality of the other pieces it would be presented with. And most importantly, creating something I would want in my own living space.

The Globe Series by Emil Thorup for Handvark was inspired by the Bauhaus movement, where form follows function and The Globe Series embraces every element in a lighting fixture. Where many other designs go to great lengths to hide the electrical cord, the cords are a piece of the design, adding a much anticipated organic and feminine touch to the black coated steel frame and the balancing mouth blown grey glass globes. As a family of both a chandelier and floor lamp, the Globe Series is a versatile lighting series for both residential and commercial use. Lire la suite…
