Lighting and accessories are essential elements that add personality and a unique style to the home. Just like wearing clothing and jewellery, these items express who we are and our aesthetics within a home environment. The right lighting and home accessories can help to promote productivity, make us feel relaxed and comfortable, and bring people together.
Living Edge understands the effect great lighting and accessories can have in a space and has recently expanded their portfolio to include brands that suit every home.
Living Edge have recently welcomed the brilliant works of Tom Dixon, a restless innovator and widely celebrated global force. Rich in narrative and favoured for his luxurious and sculptural silhouettes, the new collections continue to reflect these qualities across products from Melt, Swirl, Void, Spring, Opal and Mirror.
The showstopping Melt collection was inspired by Dixon’s idea of creating an imperfect, organic and naturalistic lighting object. In collaboration with FRONT, Melt is evocative of molten glass, the interior of a melting glacier, or images of deep space.
Swirl is a series of geometric forms stacked upon one another to create multidimensional, functional sculptures. A family of candleholders, bookends and vases, each with their own distinct silhouette, colouration and personality.
The semi-translucent family of globes makes the Opal collection, using a custom recipe of tinted white Opalescent polycarbonate. The Opal globes maintain an ethereal ghostliness in the daylight and at night form a perfectly illuminated sphere.
Representing the best of Scandinavian design today, Muuto offers lighting and accessories of contemporary design and honest expression. Expanding on strong design tradition, Muuto is constantly seeking a new and original perspective, that is enjoyed across the world.
Muuto’s Unfold lighting collection is a quirky tale on the industrial pendant lampshade. Unfold’s industrial appearance mixed with the soft rubber shade creates an interesting sense of contrast. Unfold brings a modern touch to a room.
A simple, naked bulb is given a design makeover with the Muuto E27 collection of pendant lights. E27 departs from the essence of a lamp – the socket – creating a simple yet strong object that celebrates the potential beauty in simplicity.
LAMBERT & FILS
Montreal based lighting design studio, Lambert & Fils offers original and custom lamps taking cues from mid-century Modernism, the Industrial Age, and founder Samuel Lambert’s own minimalist aesthetic. Revisiting iconic motifs across the range of these influences, Lambert & Fils collections are distinctive on their own.
The Laurent collection distils the milk globe to its essential relationship between circle and sphere. A series of thin forms compliment the Laurent globes – forms that carve through space, moving between lines, surface and volume. While Bauhaus and Modernism continue to be familiar inspirations for the studio, with the Laurent collection, Lambert & Fils takes a distinctly contemporary tack.
These collections are available at Living Edge, in store and at www.livingedge.com.au.
