Occhio presents immersive lighting installation for Milan design week
In this exclusive video produced by Dezeen, lighting brand Occhio spotlights its immersive installation titled New Horizons at this year's Milan design week.
Taking place on the historic grounds of Villa Necchi Campiglio, a private 1930s house-turned-museum in the heart of Milan, New Horizons aims to demonstrate the future of lighting and offer a "holistic experience of culture of light".
The installation features a series of Occhio's latest products, including its Luna series, which will be launched in Autumn 2023.

As one of the focal points of the show, Luna is a mirrored glass globe illuminated by Occhio's patented Fireball light. The Fireball light is designed to float like a celestial body inside the glass sphere and offers "a noble shine and thus a unique presence in any interior".
With its optical elements, the Fireball gives the light a "spherical aura" and creates a soft, glare-free and directed light, which is designed to appear like the moon.
The historic Villa Necchi Campiglio museum was originally built in 1935 by architect Piero Portaluppi for the Necchi siblings.
Today, the villa is described as "a symbol of the perfect union of innovation and tradition" and its gardens serve as the backdrop for Occhio's installation.
"Light is pure emotion for me," said designer and founder of Occhio, Axel Meise. "With New Horizons we have created an experience dedicated to precisely these feelings."
"An installation where people can experience the deep emotions that light evokes," Meise continued.
