Italian lighting atelier Slamp reinterprets classic Italian design with futuristic flair. We take a look at five Slamp signature designs, now available through Euro Nouveau.
There are objects that perform a basic function in our daily lives, and then there are magical objects that spark emotion. This is the driving force behind the Italian lighting workshop Slamp, founded in 1994 by Roberto Ziliani. “Beyond the need to light up spaces, we want to stimulate feelings and emotions. We want to parallel the efforts of the natural world and its endless ability to invent,” says Ziliani.
Ziliani is a unique interpreter of Italian design, reimagining classic materials through curiosity, experimentation and futuristic engineering solutions. His vision was to create products made with innovative materials that are unique and immediately recognisable. The energy and passion of the Slamp atelier has attracted some of the world’s most famous architects and designers.
Here are five of Slamp’s signature pieces: Aria Suspension Lamp by Zaha Hadid:Designed by the late architect Zaha Hadid, the chandelier creates a harmonious sense of motion. Fifty layers of Slamp’s Crystalflex form the soft and fluid lines which diffuse ambient light.
Battista Floor Lamp by Nigel Coates:Architect Nigel Coates created a luminous sculpture that marries art with innovation. Harmonious white brush strokes stand on a recycled timber beam base, combining nature with technology. Ceremony by Bruno Rainaldi : (top row) With four backlight swathes, this piece is like a necklace of pearls – a dramatic and sumptuous homage to femininity by creative director Bruno Rainaldi.
Chantal by Doriana & Massimiliano Fuksas: ( bottom row, left) Inspired by the world of illusion, the honeycomb shape grants a new perspective from every angle of observation. The lamp casts ripples of light that illuminate and dissipate, reminding us of the transparency of the moment.
La Lollo by Lorenza Bozzoli: ( bottom row, right) Celebrating the Slamp Tube, in-house award-winning designer Lorenza Bozzoli created a cluster of illuminated cylinders. Using alternating shades of pastel and chrome, the lamp evokes memories of limelight divas and celebrity.
