Milan 2014: German brand e15 will launch a collection of floor, table, pendant and wall lamps at this year's Salone Internazionale del Mobile, including lights made from copper discs and X-shaped extruded aluminium (+ slideshow).
Six designers have created five families of lights for the e15 collection.
Hamburg-based Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau have created North, a collection of lights each made from two circular brushed copper or powder coated steel discs, joined at just one point on their circumference.
The lights reflect abstract geometrical forms or phases of the moon depending on which angle they are viewed from and are available as pendant lights, wall lights and floor lights. The powder-coated steel versions come in white and yellow.
Palo by Michael Raasch is a horizontal disc-shaped light diffuser that slides onto a slim vertical stand, enabling its height to be set as desired.
Palo is made from steel and powder-coated aluminium in white or black, and comes with an optional marble base in white Carrara or black Marquina marble. It is available as a floor or table light.
Also by Michael Raash, Span is a horizontal, x-shaped pendant suspended from either end. It's made from extruded aluminium in sections of up to 3000mm and can be used for uplighting or downlighting, making it suitable for working or dining. White and black finishes are available.
The collection also features new floor, table and wall versions of Mark Holmes' Seam Light Series, as well as the Colour lamp designed by Daniel Rybakken and Andreas Engesvik in 2010.
The e15 lighting collection will be launched on Tuesday at Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Hall 16 Stand E53, alongside furniture by German designer Jörg Schellmann and accessories by Philipp Mainzer, Mark Braun and Jan Philip Holler.
The products will also be exhibited at the e15 showroom, Via Tortona 31, from 8 to 13 April.
Here're some more information from e15:
In Milan e15 celebrates the debut of e15 lighting, a progressive lighting collection of strikingly simple lights consistent with the brand’s artistic point of view. Consisting of five distinct lighting families, the lights bridge between residential and contract applications featuring enduring design with innovative quality construction, energy efficient LED technology and sufficient light output.
E15 also showcases three unique products by German designer Jörg Schellmann and a collection of elegant and functional accessories with character for dining and living in premium materials.
After its premiere at Cologne, the e15 accessory collection will be presented internationally for the first time, featuring enduring design in combination with high grade materials and innovative, handcraft production methods.
With diverse lighting requirements in mind, a range of floor, table, pendant and wall lights in pure materials and colours elegantly define a comprehensive collection featuring e15 lighting. Five lighting families designed by internationally renowned designers Daniel Rybakken and Andreas Engesvik, Mark Holmes, Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau as well as Michael Raasch reflect e15’s brand ethos of high grade materials paired with extraordinary craftsmanship.
Emitting beautiful atmospheric light NORTH is an expressive floor, table, pendant and wall light with distinct underlying simplicity, designed by Hamburg-based design duo Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau. Minimalism, theatricality and architecture illustrate the essence of COLOUR by Norwegian designers Daniel Rybakken and Andreas Engesvik. In its refined simplicity free of conventional aesthetics, the light COLOUR expands the field of sculpture and light.
With sculptural structure and accurate folds the SEAM light series by Mark Holmes follows the principle of reduced components and focuses on the element of light itself. SEAM is made of firmly bonded, folded sheet aluminium, available as a floor, table and wall light. By German designer Michael Raasch, the light PALO elegantly offers smart solutions for floor, table or bed side reading. The slim light diffuser in cylindrical form simply slides onto the linear stand. The visible cord lends a casual and dynamic edge to the precise form of PALO while accommodating individual positioning for down lighting at desired points. An optional marble foot adds a luxurious touch.
Simplicity is the allure and strength of the SPAN pendant light, also designed by Michael Raasch. Balanced from two suspension points, the unique X-shaped extruded aluminium section is made exclusively for e15 and incorporates a diffuser. SPAN radiates plentiful light suitable for dining or working environments.
