Illusive Luminaire by Ying Chang in Collaboration with Federico Trucchia
Plug and Play
During the recent London Design Festival we came across these ingenious modular light sculptures designed by Ying Chang, working in collaboration with Federico Trucchia.
The light is made from modules which can be stacked in different combinations, attached by magnetic connections with power supplied from the base. The modules are in contrasting ornamental shapes (made possible using 3D printing technology) designed to moderate the level of illumination and to cast intricate shadows. We love the striking form of the light and the playfulness of the design concept, a perfect marriage of light and sculpture.

Make a strong design statement with sculptural furniture such as the Clay table from Desalto, the Chariot trolley from Casamania and the Untitled concrete chair from New Works.
LZF makes all their lights using wood veneer manipulated into intricate and sculptural shapes, such as the Dandelion suspension light. We also like the Elma floor light from Incipit and the Table Tower table light from Frederik Roije.
