Euroluce returned to Milan Design Week this year. Here’s a round up of the latest releases worth mentioning from the biggest to the smallest brands from around the world.
Belgian architectural lighting brand Delta Light had several activations across the city, including collaborations and installations with Starbucks, Gessi, Bugatti and the Belgian Design showcase. The brand has also opened a new studio in Tortona – so what better time to do an official launch than at FuoriSalone. Combining education and installation, the Delta Light studio is a hub within the Tortona Design District. Nine new products are on show in Tortona, with highlights being Lass-oh, Breess (our fav!) and XY180.
Delta Light is available from P5, Luxlight and Sunlight Luminaire
Czech-brand Brokis presented four new lighting products for the 2019 Euroluce. The brand represents the quality of Bohemian glass blowing and its new products reiterate that. Lucie Kaldova has designed three of the new releases – Ivy, Muffins and Puro Contour – as well as the stand at Euroluce. Our favourite though is the AWA collection by Fumie Shibata.

Luceplan presents seven new lighting products, each vastly unique and designed by an eclectic mix of designers. Trypta, designed by our 2019 INDE.Awards Judge Stephen Burks, features strong geometries softened by upholstery. “Trypta’s central column serves as an illuminating axis around which three tactile fabric planes create a welcoming environment by defining space both graphically and acoustically,” says Stephen. Other highlights included Fienile, which is a new family of products generated by the long-term collaboration with Daniel Rybakken and inspired by traditional Norwegian farmhouses. And Amidaba by Diego Sferrazza is an indoor/outdoor lamp with a distinctive swooping detail.

For the 2019 Euroluce, Flos has partnered with Louis Poulsen and B&B Italia to showcase the ‘Design Holding’. With such design heavyweights all banding together, there were plenty of outstanding designs on offer. The all-encompassing booth has been designed by Calvi Brambilla. Flos was showing a re-edition of the Chiara lamp by Mario Bellini to celebrate 50 years. Another classic was also presented, the first edition of Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni’s Bulbo lamp. A crowd favourite was Formafantasma’s Wireline.
Flos is available from P5, Royal Interiors and Space Furniture
Three new light offerings have been presented by Bocci at this year’s Euroluce. One of the more innovative releases is 74 – a magnetic LED spotlight system. Envisioned as an alternative to more traditional track lighting, 74 features mirrored spheres that stay in place by magnets. Other new releases include 73V, an update to the ethereal ceiling light, which now comes in a new shape and colour options. And rounding out the set is a new release of 57 (57V) featuring opaline glass. Each new light was showcased on a 400sqm stand, designed by Omer Arbel.

Another Bohemian glass lighting brand showing the latest products in Milan was Lasvit. Highlights include Neverending Glory M, designed by Jan Plecháč and Henry Wielgus and Glacier designed by William Pedersen. But the most notable was the Crystal Rock Raw collection designed by Arik Levy. This offspring of his previous Crystal Rock pendant light inspired by kryptonite offers a closer fit to the raw and natural look of a real mineral.

Visitors to the stand of crystal chandelier company Preciosa immersed themselves in the wonder of 8000 glass spheres hanging in a unique arrangement – calling forth the joy of a carousel ride. In addition to creating the carousel of light, Preciosa presented a series of new and classic lighting designs in the Bohemian glass-making tradition. Its new release, Siren table lamp caught our eye.

The Spanish favourites have been a crowd-pleaser this Euroluce. The latest release from Vibia in 2019 is Tube designed by Ichiro Iwasaki: “The lighting system channels the light extending horizontally and vertically to different heights in a fluid fashion.” Tube can be designed to create a lighting landscape with distinctive conduits and grids – inspired by urbanism. “The name of the collection derives from the system of tubes but also from the lines and intersections generated that recall the typical way that underground or subway maps are illustrated,” shares Ichiro.
Vibia is available from Gamut and Spextrum
