DCW Editions has once again taken the occasion of Milan Design Week to show off a couple of new lighting products that can give some new interesting twists to any style of home decor. Join us in this article in which we’ll unveil some of the new collections presented by DCW.
The best way to define AARO by Simon Schmitz is by mentioning its starting point: a gesture inspired by Aaron’s rod. With this product, Schmitz wanted to create a motion as fluid as possible, which immediately lead him to choose the shape of the sphere. He took it upon himself to take care of elements such as the geometry, the balance, as well as the friction.n The end result was an object that seems to be moved by the wind, revolving effortlessly around its centerpiece. It almost feels like this particular lamp levitates.
Jacques Biny has designed more than 400 lights through his company Luminalite. For this collection, DCW Editions chose to publish the first 5 models from 1956-1958. Biny Curve is a good example of Biny’s design style, which reflects the efficiency, simplicity and the elegance of sobriety.
ORG is a unique lamp with a concept influenced by science fiction and astronomy. Sebastian Summa built the lamp with the inspiration of a shooting star. The end result for this lighting product is an elegant and surprisingly classic lamp that can go from rough to the sophisticated environment.
Philippe Negro, a French designer started his career alongside Michele De Lucchi and then set up his studio to bring many of his ideas to life. Among his portfolio of works, we can point to his objects, his architectural projects as well as his take on scenographies of space. Once again he opens his personal journal to show us Respiro (the Italian word for breath).
Esther and Sam, are partners, both in life and in their studio, having founded Eindhoven studio in 2014. Their favorite area to work with is light, is known for working with areas such as drawing, prototyping and creating lighting innovations. When Esther and Sam from Vantot were asked about what inspires them, they responded:
“Everything! We are curious. We are inspired by observing the world.”
Which is why it’s no wonder that VVV, in addition to its unmatched elegance, presents itself as a product with an emergent energy thanks to which speed and power take over as the two main keywords to define this new concept.
