Theater of Suspension: world’s best ceiling lamps

From times to times, Milan Design Agenda makes a quick journey through worldwide web searching for Italian brands, with an office or even headquarters in Milan, with successful projects outdoors. So you already notice, that today, Milan Design Agenda made a leap outside Milan frontiers, but do you know what are we going to write, for the next 15 minutes?

Popped up in front of our screen, an article about suspension lamps, written by New York Times, where ARTEMIDE is in.

What have in common design spaces and suspension lighting? According to Will Meyer and Gray Davis, “maniacs” as they call themselves, those specific lamps make every environment more cozy adding an attractive look to the most modern hotel lobbies, suites and penthouses.

Among their favorites are the hanging fixtures designed by Isamu Noguchi in the 1950s, which they have in their own homes. So they were excited to see Issey Miyake’s IN-EI lamps, a contemporary version of that classic design, artfully arrayed in the window at Artemide, in SoHo. “It’s a piece of jewelry that lights up”- Milan Design Agenda couldn’t be more proud of Artemide international work.

But whenever possible, it should do a lot more. That’s why their fixture of choice is often a pendant light — something that can be seen in the interiors of the Paramount Hotel and the restaurant Harlow in New York, projects recently completed by their firm, Meyer Davis Studio.

Pendant fixtures have so many functions, Davis, explained. “We like the sculptural aspect,” he said. And “they can be the focal point of a room, or can bring intimacy to a space.”And in hotel projects, he added, “We use them on each side of the bed, which frees up space on bedside tables.”

“It’s really difficult to take an idea of something that everybody knows about and successfully reinvent that. This is one of the few we’ve seen that does something interesting.”

They also liked the Coltrane suspension lamp, from the Portuguese company Delightfull, a dynamic piece they chose for the lobby of the Paramount Hotel. The effect it creates, Mr. Meyer said, is “almost like looking into a flying flock of birds.”

The Block 2 from Minotti, by Henry Pilcher, an Australian designer, is another “totally cool” fixture, he said. “It is an amazing evolution of those industrial factory lights we’ve all seen.”
