Normann Copenhagen presents Cognac glass by Rikke Hagen
Stone – the unique fusion of Hangar Design Group and Vistosi
It seems that there's nothing new in the world of home lighting... There are always the same old round shaped light bulbs, generic lamps and chandeliers. This is where the Hangar Design Group steps up and brings creative and original designs on otherwise bland lighting scene.
This time, Hangar Design Group decided to once again (after Peggy and Futura) collaborate with Vistosi, the historic Venetian glassmaker. On the occasion of Euroluce 2017, partners join forces to create Stone - a suspended lamp, characterized by almost carved volumes, where the lightness of blown glass contrasts with the solidity of linear geometries.
In this tension, between the use of a material that naturally tends to the round shape and a rigorous design that imposes corners and orthogonal lines, the Hangar Design Group style is fully expressed. The lampshade is made of two distinct pieces: a central bulb holder, in opaque white glass, for a maximum refraction of light, and a transparent diffuser which rests on it, forming a single composition. The overlapping of two glass shades produces a new color gradation that can not be otherwise achieved.
The main characteristic of Stone is simplicity, based on clear and balanced geometries. By choosing hand blown glass, Hangar Design Group managed to increase the value of otherwise simple and essential design.
The octagonal shape of Stone vaguely evokes the past and tradition, but it reinterprets them in a contemporary key.
