1. Korta Løftlight

2. Spaceflower Ben Wirth

3. Halo Manooi

Korta is a collection of pendant lamps inspired by post-war industrial design and features a contrast of delicate concrete curves broken by an expressive metal finishing. Available in different unique concrete colours combined with steel, brass or copper, the pendant is hand cast and designed in Poland. www.loftlight.eu

Spaceflower is a bright flower for a shelf or side table. The frontal movable light source, shaped like a globe, and the backlit octagon are taken from Ben Wirth’s modular lighting system, Track. By inserting the flower stem into the base plate, Spaceflower is connected to the electric circuit and thereby switched on. www.benwirth.com

Halo is the new suspended chandelier from Manooi’s collection designed by János Héder. Halo combines modern, high-quality LED as a light source that is directed outwards along the lamp’s outside face with Swarovski crystal trimmings. With a painted aluminum body, the lamp hangs from the ceiling from a galvanised Bowden cable. www.manooi.com

5. Serpente Martinelli Luce

6. Palm Masiero

Escher is a modular light and acoustic system with a visually distinct personality. Each installation is built up of hexagonal units that can be combined in a pattern of random size and shape. The threedimensional hexagonal units consist of three diamond shaped parts in different shades or colours, providing captivating visual effects. www.acoshapeplus.com

Designed by Elio Martinelli in 1965, Serpente was showcased at Light+Building in a limited-edition gold finish version. Exemplary of mid-century modern Italian design, 100 signed and numbered Serpentes were created for its 50th anniversary. Serpente is a modernist light vessel with rounded curves and organic shapes. www.martinelliluce.it

Divided into three theme-based areas, Masiero’s stand at Light+Building featured a business area with a composition of Palm LED appliques in fan or fish-scale shapes. The Palm design has a white metal frame covered in a choice of four wood essences ranging from light oak to black, with silver veining and gold or silver leaf finish. www.masierogroup.com
