The novelties of Pablo Designs at Light + Building 2018 15.02.2018
With more than 2,600 exhibitors and over 210,000 visitors, Light + Building is one of the most important trade fairs in the lighting industry. Every year, in fact, Frankfurt becomes the stage for lighting design trends and smart solutions oriented to future technologies. In this panorama of light and innovation, from March 18 to 23, Pablo Designs takes part in the fair with new and significant lighting creations, in which the minimalism of design meets the smartest technologies and an accurate choice of materials. Among the novelties that will be presented at the fair, the Bola Disc, Bola Felt, Belmont, Grid, Cielo XL and Corner Office lamps.
Bola Disc combines the perfection of a finely polished disc with that of the opal blown glass sphere, from which LED lighting is emitted. The aesthetic result is surprising with a play of reflections between the two circular geometries.
Similar in name but different in materials, Bola Felt recalls the design of a soft wool felt hat. The conical structure of the lampshade is developed around an elegant sphere diffuser that allows you to tilt the light from multiple angles creating direct or indirect lighting. Designed by Brad Ascalon, Belmont reinterprets the concept of the traditional fabric lamp that meets the warmth and natural beauty of wood. The clean and rounded lines on the sides make Belmont an essential and versatile suspension lamp thanks to the variety of possible coverings, such as colored fabrics.
Instead, inspired by the Japanese cabinetmaker tradition, the architecture of the Grid lamp looks like a sophisticated suspended and ordered scheme, available in natural wood or optical acrylic. Through the slits of the structure composed of lamella cut with extreme precision, the light filters and spreads downwards creating a unique atmosphere. Cielo XL with its slim design and its refined finishes brings light back to its essential function. A lamp that consists of a disk of light positioned at the base of a slender stem and that expresses with all its force the minimalist philosophy of Pablo Designs.
Finally, Corner Office, a system designed for the office that defines personal space in a dynamic environment such as spaces dedicated to work. Designed by Peter Stathis and Michael McCoy, Corner Office consists of three elements: a dimmable and angular LED light with built-in USB ports, a set of reversible and interchangeable fabric panels available in two different sizes and an optional pocket for small storage devices such as smartphones or tablets.
