Design highlights from 2020’s Salone del Mobile furniture

Better designs for better living.

Moooi’s release for 2020 – destined for the Salone del Mobile furniture fair that was cancelled this year – is the Space Table Lamp, which offers an unusual spin on a regular lighting appliance. It has a slender mirrored surface and sits unobtrusively in the home. However, once switched on, it reveals a depth filled with different lighting hues. Material and technique work together in an unconventional way to create this element of surprise, which is characteristic of designer Ward Wijnant’s works.

“I don’t think of myself as designing architecture, but designing people’s lives. As furniture is close to the human body, it is often more important for our lives than architecture.”

    GLOWING GLASS

    Classicon and designer Sebastian Herkner’s new Plissee Floor Lamp turns our perceptions of glass upside down. The lamp shade, reminiscent of artfully pleated textile, is actually hand-blown glass atop a metal base. While glass conveys a sense of hardness, it’s testament to the masterful craftsmanship that the lamp, like a weightless glowing balloon, adds a soft, cosy feel to interiors. The light source is a dimmable LED.
