daniel debiasi + federico sandri add two lamps to normann copenhagen's catalog

 

daniel debiasi and federico sandri founded their own design studio called something in 2010. based in london and verona, they work within various fields of design ranging from objects to spaces. their collaboration evolves along a continuous dialogue encouraged by spatial, cultural and behavioral observations. multiple experiments with different materials and processes, and the relationship between manufacture and craftsmanship from the basis for a much broader thinking where objects are always considered as part of a bigger picture. this year they are presenting two products for normann copenhagen: a floor lamp called ‘stage’ and desk lamp called ‘momento’.

‘stage’ is a floor lamp that can be directed, pointing the light where needed

 

 

 

‘stage’ by something formally expresses the natural gesture of pointing the light where needed. the dome containing the light source evolves from a very rational conic shape smoothly into a practical handle on the top, which can be used to direct the light beam, almost like in professional photography lights. as a whole, the lamp features a big head opposed to a very slim body, slightly and nicely disproportionated.

‘momento’ is a desktop lamp

 

 

 

‘momento’ is characterized by a simple and intuitive light positioning system. the central joint draws inspiration from fishing rod holders and allows to split the lamp into two separate elements: the tubular element paired with the dome slides that rotates while the base stays ready and form. the dome containing the light source, presents some sort of a crest with the switch just next to it, allowing for an intuitive and straightforward interaction. a simplification play on the archetype of the desk lamp, resulting in a curious object, suitable for both the home and public space.
