The Lantern collection by Light-Point, a contemporary take on the classic lamp shape that dates back centuries, has just been awarded a Red Dot award for high-quality design.
“We are proud to push the boundaries in lighting design and receiving the Red Dot award for the Lantern collection is a recognition of this,” commented Ronni Gol, CEO and founder of Light-Point. “This design harnesses the latest LED technology and is both aesthetically timeless and minimal.”
The work of Danish designer Marie Holsting, the Lantern collection has a rectangular shape and a solid, black-lacquered aluminium and glass frame. It comes in wall, floor and portable versions and has a built-in LED light source. This radiates an interplay of angles and geometric shapes that gives the collection its distinctive graphical and architectural appeal.
The wall version comes in two sizes and is also weatherproof, so is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Indoors, it can create a cosy and intimate lighting effect, both as a single light source or in combination with ceiling lamps. Several Lantern wall lamps can be lined up together on a wall to create a more decorative element. The light encased in glass also evokes the warmth and safety of the indoors, as if it is a calming window greeting a weary traveller on a cold, dark night.
The Lantern floor light, meanwhile, is an elegant option for outdoors. It creates a light-filled and calming space in the dark. In this way, the lamp is like a warm and bright pavilion in the midst of an icy garden in winter. It is available in sizes 48cm tall and 60cm tall and there is also a low, square version, which measures 25cm x 25cm. The floor lights work well as decorative individual pieces or grouped together as an installation. They are also effective as secondary lighting in larger spaces such as illuminating a passageway.
