NYC: Design - SoHo

Design: Ingo Maurer.  The great Ingo Maurer photographed in his New York flagship store in SoHo with a pair of his Zak Zarak lights designed with Lutz Pankow. Zak Zarak was designed to radically change the appearance of desk lamps: instead of complicated mechanisms and lots of bits and pieces, a simple flat strip folded into a distinctive geometrical form. Magnets replace the springs and hooks of standard desk lamps.


Ingo Maurer.  Moritz Waldemeyer’s breath-taking Candles in the Wind Chandelier is a revolutionary new lighting concept, using modern LED technology to faithfully recreate the experience of light from the ancient past – the simple yet infinitely complex candle flame. The design is pure and minimal: a bare circuit board featuring the latest in micro-processor technology paired with 256 high quality LEDs per candle is all it takes to evoke the natural flow and flicker. When seen from a short distance, the light is indistinguishable from the real thing, thanks to a perfect match of the light color of the LEDs. Closer inspection reveals the low-resolution charm of the digital display.

Bisazza.   Rosella Bisazza sits on the edge of a bathtub from The Wanders Collection, a bathroom furniture line designed by Marcel Wanders for Bisazza Bagno.

Bisazza.   For the occasion of ICFF, the Bisazza flagship store launched The Wanders Collection, a collection of bathroom furniture and accessories designed for Bisazza Bagno by renowned Dutch designer Marcel Wanders.

Agape.   Vieques bathtub designed by Patricia Urquiola for Agape. The steel tub is a contemporary restyling of the old-fashioned bathtub, for a decidedly unconventional environment, which amusingly reminds me of a large sardine tin.
