Created in 1953 by designer Michael Buffet, this sconce is part of the re-edition collection with Disderot, celebrating 1950’s to 1970’s French design. This unique lamp with abstract geometric shapes has proven to stand the test of time, perhaps even been before its time, with a sleek contemporary finish perfect for minimalist styles looking for an edge. Ideal for bedrooms, hallways and as reading lamps.


 Mezzaluna by Bruno Gecchelin

Another re-edition vintage piece brought the show by DCWeditions alongside the designer himself, Bruno Gecchelin. Made in 1974, and produced by Skipper and Pollux in Milano, the floor lamp has a chrome plated tubular structure, a white marble base, and a black-enamelled head that adjusts to suit. This would be a sleek vintage piece to work as a reading lamp in living rooms, home libraries and offices.


Focus by Yuji Okitu

The Focus pendant is designed by Tokyo-based architect Yuji Okitsu who has a unique sensibility across fields of architecture, design, and art. DCWeditions displayed the light that suspended similarly to a mobile structure so that the bubble-like pendants floated elegantly. Each luminous disc is made of acrylic glass and provides illumination through Fresnel lenses that focus and refract light. The Focus lamp has a flexible aluminium base available in black or white. This pendant lamp is available with three lenses, Focus x3 to Focus x 5, with a span of 99.8cm to 160.8cm, this airy light can create a sense of tranquillity in any room.


Lamina by Sandra Peters

Lamina comes from the By Eve Black collection of luxurious and extremely refined lighting designs and works of art. The Lamina is made of vertical discs of dark coloured glass with a round wooden base; light seeps out between the discs of glass leaving a fascinating play of light and various shadows through the laminas. The composition of dark and light the Lamina creates makes it a great atmospheric piece for relaxing settings in the evening. There are two available sizes for the Lamina, one 29cm x 20cm or 21cm x 40cm.
