Here Are Some of The Best Lighting Ideas at The London Design Festival 2018 ⇒ The 2018 edition of the London Design Festival has kicked off, so the new trends and inspirations for next year are begging to emerge. Today, Decor and Style brings you some of the best lighting ideas and fixtures seen so far at the event.
Arthur – in the ARTHUR collection, the aesthetics from times gone by has been taken and reinvented into a new contemporary lighting object. In a chain of a thousand twisted strips of 3 mm thick steel, a rhythmic texture is created, reminiscent of a knightly presence. An armoured presence with gentle light is the result.
Broom – Blurring the distinction between an object for daily use and a sculptural light, William Brand designed his BROOM collection. The translation of simple pen strokes on paper into an object with thin metal wires stood at the base of this work. Strong architectural tones are inserted with a sense of Dutch humour: irony is seen by William as a badge of honour to carry through life. Over the length of more than a meter, a striped pattern of thin wires veils six independent lightbulbs. The body itself is made of metal sheets, seamlessly welded into a nickel plated frame.
Candles and Spirits – For a historic venue, William Brand was contacted by an architect. A castle, used by the Belgian government to host official guests on a state visit to their country, was in need of new lighting. However, the request came with strict conditions: crystal and gold were required to be used. As at that time William was not using those materials, he suggested another designer better positioned for this project. However, the
architect was adamant: it had to be a BRAND VAN EGMOND light, a contemporary lighting sculpture embracing and respecting the heritage of this ancient castle. Experimenting with crystals and gold, William set out to work. He tried to capture the historic values of this castle and transform them into a contemporary lighting object befitting the stunning location.
