“Binic” is the name of a small lighthouse on the Brittany coast, which is the hometown of the designer Ionna Vautrin. This served as the inspiration for a unique and personal table lamp design. The lamp features a circular glossy surface supported by a conical base, projecting a strong and uniform spotlight downwards. | Image source: Internet.
The Mite floor lamp won the 2001 Golden Compass Award in Italy. The Mite lighting series is the result of Foscarini’s research in the field of materials: it is a new form of a unique blend between light and matter. The technology behind the project is the same as that used in the manufacture of golf clubs, and the flat shape projects the spotlight onto a lampshade made of a special glass fiber fabric, which is made of yellow Kevlar® or black carbon fiber thread. | Image source: Internet.

The design challenge of Amisol was to create a suspended lamp that occupies a large physical space, yet has a small volume and can be directed within a space. A semi-transparent white film or metal mirror film is stretched inside a circular aluminum profile, like a solar sail, and a powerful light source projects a beam of light onto a large, light disc that scatters and reflects the light. Two main components are connected by thin rods, and the rotation of the disc can be set at any angle by changing the length and connection points of the two support lines. | Image source from the internet.
This lamp has a strong visual impact with a lightweight, almost transparent structure composed of a flexible cable network with LED light sources at the intersection points. The complexity of the lamp’s construction is hidden and a unique and authentic space is created by designing only with light. The specific structure allows for particular freedom in managing brightness, allowing control of the intensity of light and choosing which sectors of the lamp to illuminate. The lamp is made of steel structure and polycarbonate lenses. | Image source from the internet.

Luigi Fontana was already a leading player in the glass industry at the time. While working with glass, Ponti realized that using it extensively in interior and lighting design would become a trend.

Giova, a half vase and half lamp, marked Gae Aulenti’s first appearance in the field of lighting design. Available in two sizes, it serves as both a lamp and a night light sculpture. The design features a transparent bowl resting on a metal base, containing a white milk glass sphere that houses the light source.
The Equator with its glass cover is a modern reinterpretation of a classic luminaire. In this series of lamps, shadows are intertwined and contradictory. Light emanates from two luminous disks placed inside a central metal band, evoking associations with the equator through the combination of shadows. Due to the layered arrangement of the internal screens, the light produced by the LEDs is evenly distributed on the surface of the disks. The lower disk guides the light output downward, while the upper disk illuminates the “glass cap,” producing a soft diffused light.
