Decorative and Sustainable Luceplan Lamps
15/09/2021 - On the occasion of Milan Design Week 2021, in the renovated Flagship Store in Corso Monforte, Luceplan has chosen to present its latest products, developed over the last two years, in its Flagship Store in Corso Monforte, a store specially renovated for the occasion. There are five new product ranges: Levante by Marco Spatti, Koinè by Mandalaki Studio, Doi by Meneghello Paolelli Associati, Malamata by Studio Shulab and Zile by Archirivolto Design. The display also includes the collections of outdoor lamps, launched online last spring: Flia by Alessandro Zambelli, Fienile Outdoor by Daniel Rybakken, Nui and Nui Mini by Meneghello Paolelli Associati.

Levante - design by Marco Spatti

Fruit of the designer’s creative intuition, combined with Luceplan’s carefully-researched materials, technology and planning expertise, this is a strong-impact exciting pendant light: a new key feature in domestic living areas as well as for contract use. The light is large yet the overall image is ethereal, like an object floating through space. Levante (a name which conjures up lightness and wind but also makes a clear reference to oriental aesthetics) comes from an intersection of three large fans, and is made of an unusual material for the design sector - it comes instead from the food industry, looking like rice paper and able to evenly diffuse its light around the whole area. The fans are very fine and magnetically attached to the central section which holds the light source, hidden away like a real and beating heart. The lamp comes in two sizes: 60 cm and 1 m in diameter. The material is washable, resistant and recyclable. Levante represents a new Luceplan icon, created with sustainable principles without ever betraying the mission of high-quality projects focused on form and emotive impact. Koinè, Luceplan

Koinè – design by Mandalaki Studio

Elegance and purity in form characterise the “Koinè” family of pendant lights, named for its meaning of “shared language” and for its shapes which make it extremely versatile. The true heart of the project is not, however, its geometry but the light source itself. This is the hugely innovative feature of Koinè. The light source features a specially designed mineral lens. The light beam distributed by the lens is homogenous and distinct, a broad cone of light with clearly-defined edges. The border between light and shade is thus sharp, not blurred. Thanks to careful light orientation, Koinè avoids dazzling effects, guaranteeing a pleasant lighting experience. The reflector is a shade that mainly plays a decorative role. Koinè comes in three sizes (110, 55 and 37 cm diameter) and always take up limited height space. The ceiling rose design reflects that of the diffuser. Doi, Luceplan

Doi - design by Meneghello Paolelli Associati

“D” stands for ‘due’ (two); “O” is the circular element, a disk; and “I” is the linear element that encloses the light source. From the interaction and composition of these two elements, the Doi system’s circular and linear elements magnetically draw strength and content from each other. Doi, Luceplan

Doi is composed of two elements: the disk (fixed to the ceiling by a steel cable) and the spotlight (an aluminium extrusion powered by a fine electric cable). Two primary forms - a ring and a line - find constant balance, perfect but inevitably precarious. The way they interact determines the light’s aesthetics, position and functionality.

This relationship is the driving force of the project and is created in two ways, exploiting two different physical forces: magnetism and gravity. The spotlight and disk come in three colour options: white, opaque black, and satin brass. The white version of the spotlight has a ridged effect that runs through the surface. The feature of this system also lies in the possibility of selecting a different colour pairings for the spotlight and disk - matching or contrasting. The range is rounded off with a wall-fixed version. Malamata, Luceplan

Malamata – design by Studio Shulab

The range of Malamata lights (named to recall the designer’s Israeli roots, drawing on the Hebrew meaning of ‘up and down’) is characterised by the possibility of a variety of diffuser positions.
The light can be used in different positions thanks to a counterweight in the form of a sphere with a button that enables adjust- ment. By pushing this button, a spring is activated, moving the counterweight down the lamp and thus changing the position of the diffuser. As well as the pendant design, Malamata is available in wall-fixed and floor lamp versions.
The diffusers are made in blown opal glass. The particular feature of this project (apart from its movement) is the large size of the diffuser available (48 cm). It is also available in a smaller 22 cm version, suited not only to the pendant model but also to wall- fixed and floor lamps. The larger size is one of the biggest diameters possible using blown glass. The diffuser is glazed while the fixture’s colours are brushed brass and opaque black. Zile, Luceplan

Zile – design by Archirivolto Design

The Zile light range, named for its diffuser shape which resembles a Tibetan bell, features a minimalist design. The range com- prises floor lamps, table lamps and pendant lights. The special feature of this project lies in its close attention to sustainability. Luceplan has always been committed in its efforts to reduce the environmental impact not only of its production but also in the distribution of products. Zile is, in all respects, an eco-friendly light. The lampshade is made of a long-lasting bioplastic (PLA) which is normally used in the packaging industry as a compostable material. It is composed of 80% renewable sources as it is made from by-products in production of industrial use, i.e sugar., sugarcane, corn and cellulose, with manufacturing processes being of low environmental impact (with limited C02 emissions). Almost all the lamp’s elements are recyclable and/or recycled.  Zile, Luceplan
