Today I want to share with you some of my favourite lighting elements from the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair, starting with the Volume lamp designed by GamFratesi for Lightyears (above here). The table lamp was inspired by the old stereo amplifiers in the mechanical gesture of the button rotation that reminds of the increasing or decreasing of the volume.
At the fair, I also had the chance to see the Ascent lamp designed by Daniel Ribakken for Luceplan. The lamp was presented last year at Euroluce in Milan and was a real success. Also, from the same company and designer, the Counterbalance lamp (below).

From the Greenhouse area dedicated to the young designers.
My favourite object at the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair was the Noidoi lamp, in the Greenhouse area (the new talents). Designed by a Norwegian-Romanian company, it's a sculpture-like element that adapts to the different lighting needs. In fact, the different facets of its base serves to orientate the lighting in different direction, therefore adapting to different needs. (above). Finally, the Pirouette Table Lamp by Studio Baag Milano. This draws its inspiration from old-fashioned spinning top and its whirling movement. Available in ash, oak or walnut wood with brass details or a playful striped-marble version (below).
