Roll & Hill presents 2017 lighting collection in New York
Lamps that adjust like construction cranes and pendants that look like they are wearing hats feature in New York lighting brand Roll & Hill's latest range.
Following a debut at Euroluce in Milan, Roll & Hill is showcasing a series of new designs in New York during this month's NYCxDesign festival.
For the first, Ladies & Gentlemen Studio has teamed up with Norwegian duo Vera & Kyte to create the Krane lamp, which hangs from a cord threaded through an arched fixtures.
A counterweight allows the position of the hemispherical diffuser to be adjusted like a construction crane, and incorporates a dimmer switch. The design comes as a larger ceiling-mounted model and a smaller wall version.
Another collaborative collection pairs Washington DC-based Jonah Takagi and Norway's Hallgeir Homstvedt.
Their Half and Half series of pendants combines metal hat-like tops and glass bottoms, in combinations of conical or hemispherical shapes. Available metal finishes are blackened steel, brushed brass, oil-rubbed bronze or polished nickel.
Master glassblower John Hogan has designed his first pieces for Roll & Hill. Named Coax, the lamps comprise transparent tubes that sit one inside the other and hang over an glowing horizontal bar.
Additions to the brands existing lines include a smaller, portable table version of New York studio Visibility's Esper pendant lamps, which can be used indoors and out.
Ladies & Gentlemen Studio's Kazimir lights – "a rhombic take on the series inspired by the early 20th-century Russian modernist Kazimir Malevich" – are also available in new shapes.
All of the new pieces are on display alongside older designs at Roll & Hill's SoHo showroom, 3 Mercer Street, New York, during the citywide NYCxDesign festival –taking place from 3 to 24 May 2017.
Other lighting designs launching during the event include pieces by Rich Brilliant Willing, Bec Brittain, and Lindsey Adelman and colleagues.
