ILLAN By LUCEPLAN
LED multi-layer wood pendant lamp
The young Hungarian designer Zsuzsanna Horvath has created the Illan suspension lamp, a product presented last year as a prototype at the Salone Satellite. Luceplan, always with an eye on new talents in the world of design, immediately understood the potential of the very poetic, direct approach of Zsuzsanna Horvath.
Technological innovation and research on materials are the fundamental factors in the company’s method, and in fact Illan aptly conveys the essence of all-around experimentation, interpreted in terms of technology and expressive impact. The remarkable decorative value of Illan and its emotional range expressed through the intelligent and original use of materials, make it a truly special lamp.
In Hungarian, the term illan indicates something temporary and fleeting, whose beauty, according to Zsuzsanna Horvath, has to be immediately grasped, without letting ourselves get distracted by the frenetic pace of everyday life - like a fragrance that fades in time, or a sensation to capture before it slips away.
The Illan lamp has an ethereal, vibrant design subject to the undulating movement of the air, the constant variation that sets the shape and molds the luminous volume. It is composed of a very light body made with extremely thin, flexible plywood, cut by laser along densely packed equidistant lines and hung from the ceiling.
The lamp, available in multiple sizes up to one meter in diameter, takes on volume thanks to the force of gravity and assumes its characteristic form that floats in the air. The suspension and power system is unobtrusive, contributing to the overall lightness. The warm LED light source is positioned inside the body, in the upper part, to generate very comfortably, relaxing diffused light.
