The media company Condé Nast Germany has moved to the Richard Meier Building in Munich after an extensive redesign.
The new project by Francesco Rota takes its inspiration from contemporary sculpture, playing with the curvature of surfaces in an interesting cross-referencing of light and mirrors. “Lens” is in fact a direct light wall lamp with a concave screen that cre
ates a barrier between the light source and the surrounding space. Available in chrome or copper fi nishes, “Lens” is characterised by an essential line that is enriched by the glare refl ected from its glossy surface and reminiscent, in both structure an
d name, of classical optics studies. A decorative inspiration that hides an innovative technological heart - the new LED source that guarantees energy savings of over 80% compared to the traditional version - which is also found in “Kin”, the project that
premiered at the last Salone del Mobile. In this case, however, technology meets rigorous industrial aesthetics in order to create a suspended lamp, made from cast aluminium, with the classic “Cina” form, now also available in a version with two or three
lighting fi xtures in a new colour range.
