Lightyears introduces three new models from the Caravaggio family
Cecilie Manz has completed the Caravaggio family with a table lamp, a floor lamp and a pendant with a shade made of opal glass. These new models will be presented for the first time at light+building in Frankfurt.
The designer Cecilie Manz launched her co-operation with Lightyears in 2005 on a large scale with the Caravaggio pendant lamp. Since then, Caravaggio has been developed as a total of five versions, and now the Caravaggio family has been made complete by the addition of a Caravaggio table lamp and floor lamp and the Caravaggio Opal pendant, with its opal glass shade.
These new, smaller editions of Caravaggio – the table lamp and floor lamp – complement the large suspended pendant lamp when combined in the same room, while at the same time being elegant design pieces that will always be able to stand alone. Caravaggio Opal represents an expansion of the pendant design with the transparent opal glass material. This provides better room lighting and an efficient diffusion of light. It will be available in sizes from P0 to P3.
Both the table lamp and the floor lamp are made of metal and are finished with white or black lacquer. The characteristic shade has a high-gloss lacquer finish, while the foot and stand are lacquered with a matt finish. A flexible tube, which is concealed by the shade, is mounted on the stand, making it possible to tilt the shade – and with it the light cone – by up to 40 degrees. This feature makes the lamps more flexible and functional as light sources. At the same time an exciting asymmetric look can be achieved when the shade is tilted. The table lamp is available both on a foot and as a plug-in, with the lamp located directly in the table.
All these variants will be presented for the first time at light+building in Frankfurt from 6–11 April, and they will be on sale from October-November 2008.
