IC Lights F

This collection explores balance. There is a series of lights: table lights, wall lights, ceiling pendants
and ceiling mounted lights which take as their basic form a sphere that is perfectly balanced on
the edge of a rod. I came across an online video clip of a contact juggler. He was spinning a set
of spheres, moving them around on his arms and edge of his fingers. And as I got mesmerized by
the magic of his skill, suddenly the spheres look perfectly still. I wanted to capture that exact
moment. This was my starting point. available at:

A sculpture in light, the Holly Floor Lamp is defined by soft, soaring lines. Drops of glass blown by
a craftsman create a stylized woman's profile that supports the lampshade. The lampshade is
double layered and covered with ivory fabric. The glass mutates as solid appears liquid,
moulding itself into volumes and voids of exquisitely visual beauty. Price includes shipping
to the USA. Manufactured by Poltrona Frau. available at:

empatia
designed by: Carlotta de Bevilacqua + Paola Di Arianello
Empatia is inspired by the association between the great glass-blowing tradition and the
LED technology of Artemide. High interest in the expression potentials of this material resulted
into co-operation with master glass blowers to gain full control of the special suppleness of
Venetian glass and to work on the balance between surface and light, between subtle
densities and transparencies. Hence clear, pure craft objects, each of them unique in all
respects. Transparency and opacity are wisely dosed to obtain a glass that reflects light
without glaring and without losing  efficiency. Hence optical device, whose heart is a
high-performance LED-based light engine created separately  from the glass emission
body in favor of higher thermal efficiency and performance. Light is controlled with
maximum yield and driven towards the glass diffuser through a transparent pipe with
a very low absorption coefficient. available at:

finished in carbide black with polished silver accents. available at:

structures are made up of sections of 0.4mm
etched metal sheets. This pendant light has a
detailed pattern which casts a mass of intricate
shadows when lit. Could be hung in multiples
using our Pendant System, or as a single pendant,
above a dining table for example. Also available

element
designed by: Corbett Lighting
Element is an experimental new design that adds molecular structure to any environment. This organic
formation, which also bears a striking resemblance to the childhood game Jacks, is hand-crafted from
iron and finished in Vienna bronze. A variety of gleaming globes, each containing a source of illumination,
branch from round centers. The smoked and  plated glass globes (which resemble smoked, mirrored balls
when the fixture is turned off) mix with white, inside frosted glass globes, creating design contrast. Looking
great from any angle, Element is suspended by multiple aircraft cables which can be individually
adjusted to different positions so the organic form can change perspectives.
