LZF - Lighting Up The World
LZF, one of our favourite lighting brands, has been part of a host of projects around Europe and America recently that show off the diversity and adaptability of its sculptural and ambient collection. Here, we shine the spotlight on just a few of the best.
Galleria Morena, Poland
Designer: Design Plus
Products:Mini Mikado S by Miguel Herranz
Galleria Morena has undergone a three-year redevelopment and its remodelled food court now proudly features LZF’s Mini Mikado by Migueal Herranz. With architecture by Marro and interior design by Design Plus, the family-friendly food court is a light, bright and colourful destination.
Overhead, orange and turquoise Mini Mikados are suspended independently to illuminate single tables and in clusters over larger tables and booths to provide functional lighting, colour and a sense of movement. Made from FSC plantation veneer and handcrafted in Valencia, the Mini Mikado is based on Herranz’s favourite Gilbert & Sullivan musical The Mikado, and with fan-like strips of wood they cast spectacular rays across the room.
Köln Kitchen, Germany
Product:Link pendant by Ray Power
Colour is a powerful visual element, communicating meanings and messages without words, and being the visual component that people best remember. So when you add bright orange accents to a relatively minimalist space, like this kitchen in Köln, it’s sure to make a memorable statement.
Orange is fresh, energetic and adventurous, which perfectly sums up this space designed by Nicole Bruch of Nicoladenseiten. With LZF’s Link pendant by Ray Power hung and Verner Panton’s classic Panton Chair in zesty orange, the space has vibrancy and youthfulness. It’s not only the colour of the pendant and chairs that match, but also their curving, organic form. The three-dimensional Link pendant is composed of wood veneer strips that layer and swirl on top of each other, while Panton Chair’s cantilevered and anthropomorphic shape is equally fluid and effortless.
Stanford Health Care, California
Product:Nut lamps by Ray Power and Marivi Calvo
Nicholsbooth Architects designed Stanford Health Care in Palo Alto with the intention of creating a corporate environment that favours the contemporary over the conservative when it comes to design, colour and collaboration.
And that, of course, includes the lighting too. LZF’s Nut lamps by Ray Power and Marivi Calvo are handcrafted knots of light suspended above the kitchen, dining area and casual meeting area. Like the Link pendant, the Nut blurs the lines of sculpture and utility with delicate strips of wood veneer that twist and turn like a three-dimensional infinity symbol.
Escorpion Club de Golf, Spain
Product:Agatha pendant by Luis Eslava
And after a round of golf, where better to relax and unwind than at a warm, inviting and well-designed bar and café. Interior designer Vicente Navarro has certainly hit a hole in one with this bright and spacious hospitality hub at Escorpion Club de Golf in Bétera, Spain.
LZF’s Agatha pendant by Luis Eslava is an ambient accompaniment to this space showcasing the use of natural materials. The sculptural and imaginative lamp has looping wood veneer strips like a flower in bloom, and its shape morphs depending on the angle it’s viewed from.
