Chosing one list of products that have particularly excelled throughout the year is never simple and it’s get even harder in the lightning sector. In 2017 More With Less have shown more than twenty lighting projects and now we have choose our favourite ten. This is 2017 in lamps.
The projects are arranged in chronological order, beginning at january. In this selection we can see how the design has changed throughout the year towards more simple lines and more functional objects. Here’s our selection of lamps of 2017:
- Annular pedant Light
This lamp, created by the Canadian Studio MSDS and produced by Woud, creates the full balance in an illumination. The ring of light on the top of a table gives a directional light while on a product power it forms, thus creating a light, versatile and loaded with personality. One lamp that shows perfect what 2017 in lamps has been: simplicity and functionality.
- Heng, of Zanwen Li
Something as simple as a set of magnets we has developed one of the most surprising lamps this 2017. The user chooses when these magnets should be touching and so turn on the light. Heng is a project that got more than 6,000 patrons through crowdfunding and that today has a waiting list to be able to get one.
- Möja, of Leonard Kadid
Magnets are also present in this lamp, but to improve its stability and let the user choose which position put it without compromising its form. The lamp is composed of two elements: a base and a top that includes a Led module. It also has two positions: open and closed. When Möja is closed does not emit light, mixing the design and use of the object.
- KUU, designed by Elina Ulvio
Elina Ulvio, a Finnish Designer, brings the minimalist lamp to another level by making it reversible. The position and lighting are configured by the user, since KUU can be rotated unlimited thanks to its spherical shape and a mesh cordless electricity between parts. The position can be both vertically and horizontally, and the cable coming out is minimal, always the same color as the lamp.
- A-Beam, from Hand&Eye
The London based studio created in 2011 and led by architect Tom Housden contributed to this 2017 list with A-Beam, a ceramic beam extruded which has the latest in LED lighting technology. This combination of craftsmanship and high-precision engineering come together to create a unique suspended lighting, a product which adds warmth with clay to the architectural high engineering.
- Filip Triner’s Circle Lamp
Minimalism made lamp. Circle Lamp, desgned by Filip Triner, achieves a timeless, sophisticated and versatile design. Its base is in polished concrete, which is coupled with a large circular light bulb, that is what gives all the personality to the lamp. Circe Lamp provides a very pleasant halogen light and also has a touching sensor to graduate it.
- Circles, of the valencian study Kutarq
The Valencian designer Jordi Lopez Aguilo developed this light for the Circles collection of the German company Millelumen. The objective was to focus their designs under the basic principle of the reduction of form led to the essence of the product. Circles is characterized by contrasts: thin metal structure collides with marble cylindrical base and the structure is crowned with a plate LED, fully adaptable to the user.
- Komorebi, of Leslie Nooteboom
The design of this lamp of Leslie Nooteboom seems simple: a small projector that through its form becomes a very versatile product that is able to adapt to any environment. The triumph of Komorebi is due to its neutral colors and the use of a material as used in the decoration of the past few years as it is concrete.
- Onddo, of Iratzoki Lizaso
Onddo stands out by its shape and by the specific choice of its material: terracotta. In this study, located in the middle of nature, they have decontextualised this material from its common use, and they have turned it into a lamp. We can’t skip Onddo in our compilation of 2017 by its mixture between the traditional creative processes and the most modern ones to give place to this unique lamp with different functions.
- Balloon, of Chris Granneberg
This 3D printed lamp reminds us to the zeppelins, that now are getting adapted to occupy a space in our house. The base of Balloon is printed in 3D and the rest is made manually to create soft and delicate surfaces. A quick way to turn ideas into tangible products of high quality. This includes electronic Gantri components which allow a proper and long-lasting use of the object.
From More With Less we hope you enjoyed our 2017 lamps selection!
