The new Blow by Luceplan: with dim-able halogen lamp + motor 50% faster! Blow, the “fan with
the light above its blades”, protected for this reason by industrial patent, is a multi functional
light! Thanks to its sophisticated electronics, both the light and the fan can be operated by
an infra-red remote control. Thus the fan can be installed while leaving the existing electricity
system unaltered, or using ordinary switches that can be inserted in traditional wall plates.
Blow also has an operating switch that can be used to reverse the blade rotation so as to
regenerate the continuous and one-way air flow. The blades, with their particular profile
and transparency, make the light elegant and easy on the eye. The exceptionally quiet
motor (only 32 DB), is mounted on ball-bearings inside the opaline polycarbonate
bearing case. Incandescent bulb, max wattage 150. available at:

deyo
designed by:  Hudson Valley Lighting
Artfully modern, Deyo provides a thoroughly sculptural and eye-catching form. While the wide

a-framed half dome
designed by: Allied Maker
Handcrafted from premium 16-gauge heavy weight metal and individually pushed over a
wooden mold to form its shape. The dome is then meticulously brushed and waxed to achieve
the perfect sheen. The blown glass globe provides pleasant surface diffusion while complimenting
the light's overall form. The piece is finished with a matching metal canopy and premium-grade
wooden dowel, turned on a lathe and finished with natural oils. The dowel is custom made in
a variety of exotic woods and provides simple structural support for the A-frame. The fixture is
suspended with a woven herringbone cord. available at:

i lucci argentati, school of light.
designed by: Dodo Arslan.
I Lucci Argentati draws from nature to create a whimsical, yet modern light. Recalling a school of
fish darting through freshwater, it creates a mesmerizing luminescence. Sets of sleek lights combine
to form a stunning pendant with thin incisions along the bottom creating an understated, tranquil
beauty. Thanks to its modular system, I Lucci Argentati is customizable and can be combined in
many different configurations: from small to extra large; as a pendant or sconce; and finished
either in brushed nickel or white. Design Dodo Arslan. available at:

equilibrist
designed by:  Jean Nouvel
Two lamps like a scale pursuing balance. Equilibrist is a signalling leisure object – two different
appliances turning, rotating around a vertical axis. A sort of high-tech traffic light, whose
signals emit non-symmetrical light. Light control: separated switch dimmer.

soft dog pendant
designed by:  Henrik Pedersen
Henrik Pedersen began his career as a fashion designer but expanded into graphic design and
product development after founding his Denmark-based design studio, known as 365°, in 1996.
“I think that once you have been educated in design of any form, it’s quite easy to make the
change,” he says. “The creative mindset is the same, you just have to change your mental
toolbox.” In creating the Soft Dog Pendant (2012), Pedersen wanted to evoke a lightness and
purity that are “reminiscent of trustworthy, yet innovative, Scandinavian design.” What he
achieved is a soft, sculptural, less industrial form that’s simple and welcoming.
