1. Muuto Hall 03.2 Stand E 022
Under The Bell pendant fixture
Under The Bell is not just a lampshade. When hung over a table or in an open environment it creates its own space within the bigger space.
Iskos Berlin created something very independent with „Under the Bell“ for Muuto. Under the Bell is not only usable as decorative pendant lamp, but it can also set characteristic accents as individual design object. The pendant lamp acts like a kind of bell and that way, the lamp embraces and shelters the table and people beneath it
Semi is a unique pendant lamp, based on two quarter-circles put together, back-to-back. With its its distinctive arch-shaped, enamelled metal shade, lightness of form and unique, timeless design, the elegant Semi lamp achieved great success in the 1980’s and became, at that time, the best-selling Danish design, gaining worldwide recognition and iconic status
4. Fatboy hall 03.2 Stand E046
Fatboy Edison The Petit Table Lamp
Edison, the Petit, is a small, tough and portable table light. You’re in the presence of a brilliant and bright little piece of design.
Aino and Alvar Aalto were commissioned in 1936 to design the interior of the Savoy Restaurant in Helsinki. Made from a single piece of brass, the elegant Golden Bell was a part of the restaurant’s interior. It was shown in the Finnish Pavilion of the Paris World Expo in 1937.
