2022 EDITION FINALISTS

Best decorative lamp for contract use

WINNER

ALBA

ELESI LUCE

The quality of the lamp is very good, it can furnish any room, everywhere. Its design is essential and functional, at the same time very decorative. It represents an evolution of the techniques of the local tradition and has been well explained in the technical and construction aspects, well documented. The concept conveys a great emotional impact. The designer Roberto de Santi wanted to communicate with ALBA what our eyes alone cannot yet see among the infinite boundless beauties of the cosmos: a light and luminous sign, a vessel named Terra, harmonious and endowed with a soul, for Plato the soul of the world.

LEDA

KARMAN

Leda is a necklace of light that decorates rooms like a precious jewel adorns a woman’s neck. Original but also poetic, it is a “feminine” lamp. An opening that well describes its structure, or rather its lines and curves that draw swings, gym equipment under the house, a hammock between two centuries-old trees, a lighthouse that indicates the course to a sailing ship.

It can be almost infinite in size, studded with small spheres that we would have seen well lit too, small, discreet satellites to remind us of the stars on a summer night. Its use is open to the imagination of architects and lighting designers, its originality, in addition to the materials, is to remind us that “light” is a precious element that not only illuminates our spaces of daily life but also in this case of LEDA draws them.

The concept is closely linked to the territory and is inspired by the traditions of Murano glass. The novelty and uniqueness of the idea lies in the fun of combining new and recycled components. It is an application where nothing is wasted but everything is recycled and transformed. People like it because it almost looks like a game, it’s original, funny and playful. This green lamp suggests summer, the idea of being on an island and the desire to quench your thirst.
