Cirkel Wall Light by Daphna Laurens
Circle of Light
Daphne Laurens is a young Dutch designer best known for designing the Sofalamp and Fruitlamp for Cappellini. Her approach in merging fine and applied arts in her designs can be seen in the Cirkel wall light, shown at the Salone Satellite of the Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan. An exercise in circles and balance, the metal wall light makes a distinctively sculptural presence, even when switched off.
Shop the Style
The Dandelion light from LZF is also made up of multiple circles, albeit inspired by the natural shape of the dandelion flower. For something more flamboyant try the Lucky Eye OLED wall light / mirror from Blackbody.

Detractors of minimalism often decry the cold, impersonal nature of the style. However, when executed intelligently, minimalist designs can be surprisingly expressive. The furniture collections of designer Niko Koronis is a case in point.
Founded by furniture designers Josefine Krabbe Munck, Kamma Rosa Schytte, Kasper Kyster and Lærke Ryom, Ukurant showcases experimental products from emerging designers which straddle the border between art and commerce.
