Lady GalalaDesign by Peluffo & Partners

for Martinelli Luce

peluffo_and_co image

Peluffo & Partners is a leading figure in the international panorama of contemporary architecture. Its buildings emerge and will emerge with originality in Italy, in Rome, Milan, as well as in Liguria, Molise and Veneto, in France and in Egypt. They remind us of with their presence the possible generosity of architecture. Characteristics of their work are the firm belief that architecture can change the world, that happiness is the aim of the work of architecture and that every building. Its main place of work and cultural welcome, the historic Studio of Lucio Fontana in Pozzo Garitta in Albissola represents the choice of genealogical continuity in the contemporary world.

Lady Galala was conceived during a meeting under a tent in the mountainous desert of Sokhna, Egypt. It was imagined as moved by the wind, it was envisaged in a dream of colours and joy, mounted and hung casually, for an evening of shisha, tea, Turkish coffee, or for an Iftar after sunset.

In the various combinations it resembles the appearance of the East, the Middle East, Africa, the Mediterranean and finally of our own home.

A madeleine of light and lightness.

C_Ball SystemDesign by Stone Designs

for B.Lux

7b64ec85-694d-406d-842d-2e50c3340161 image

Since 1995 Cutu Matazuelos (1973) and Eva Prego (1974) have formed the multidisciplinary studio Stone Designs. They took their first steps into the world of interior design with exhibitions and stands, which allowed them to experiment with different approaches and forge a very personal vision of design, based on naturalness and simplicity.

Stone Designs has worked with B.lux on several custom lighting projects, for both restaurants and retail spaces. In 2014, B.lux included Stone Designs’ Scout suspension lamp in its catalogue of decorative lighting for homes. Thus, the studio joined the brand's cadre of regular designers.

Both, Stone Designs and B.lux, walk the same path in a way that ensures effective communication and captivates current and future clients. A functional communication that converges the design and its condition of manufacturers in a visual concept: to transmit through the image, not the words, impregnating all these years of history of the Basque brand in an easily understandable reflection. Now, we will direct the image of the company as part of its branding, unifying all corporate messages so that company and clients connect in the most direct and sensitive way possible.

C_Ball System is a lighting system that allows adapting the lighting to the spaces by using different wall or ceiling accessories. It is a tubular system to which lighted blown-glass spheres in an opal white finish, from the C_Ball decorative lamp collection, are attached. Its metal parts are available in a matte black finish.

C_Ball System, designed by Stone Designs, was recently awarded the “Special Prize EPIX: Be Smart For Your City” at the Venetian Smart Lighting Award 2022.

Kelly DomeDesign by Andrea Tosetto

for Lodes

Andrea-Tosetto image

Following his graduation at the Accademia delle Belle Arti in Venice, Andrea Tosetto joined the family lighting company, which he soon took over.

Andrea marks the transition of the company from the classical lines of that time to an innovative and more contemporary language. His dynamic entrepreneurial style and lively creative vein come to life in refined products that enhance the craftsmanship method. Andrea succeeded in emphasizing the company’s know-how, focusing on the internalization of production processes and on the use of quality materials with a strong bond with the Venetian territory. Kelly, Nautilus are just some of Andrea’s creations for LODES.

Seductive beauty with a bold personality thanks to the strong and precise laser cuts, which lighten the metal of the lampshade and create an intriguing play of light and shadow. Kelly is a multifaceted family of suspension and wall lamps that stand out with elegance in any living space thanks to the variety of available forms and finishes.

AphrosDesign by Oriano Favaretto

for Sylcom

Masiero-Favaretto image

Oriano Favaretto was born in Treviso in 1956. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice with master Emilio Vedova. He lives and works in the Venetian countryside which, with his human and natural presences, marks his inner and artistic formation.

The passion for Murano glass brings him closer to the legendary forge of angels where he collaborates with legendary names in the sector.

Among the numerous successes achieved in his career we point out some: 1981 – winner of the competition between Italian academies and winner of the scholarship to the Bevilacqua la Masa Foundation; 1987 and 1992 – Murano prize, Guggenheim Peggy Collection and A.B.A .; 1993 – gold lamp award, s.i.i., Paris; 1997 winner of the prix d’excellence prize for the Polipò lamp of the year, Marie Claire.

Rural and visionary, poised between form and content, Favaretto ranges in the world of design by signing products for international companies and brands such as: Sylcom, Venini, Artemide, Cattelanitalia, Masiero, Demajo, Leucos, Porada, Bonaldo, Mastella, Vistosti, Linealight, Mastelladesign, Viabizzuno.

Currently, his works are exhibited at the Murano glass museum and in private collections.

The sea foam – or aphros in ancient Greek – from which the goddess Aphrodite was born materializes in the form of small glass sculptures full of charm, color and appeal. A delightful collection of blown-glass lighting fixtures proposed in hanging, wall and ceiling versions. The variety of shapes and colors attractively light up and reveal the beauty of the glass and play of contrasts on the smooth surface peppered with mini bubbles. Aphros is also proposed as a system for group compositions that can be adapted to the most wide-ranging design needs.
