Designed by Benjamin Graindorge for Moustache, the Heirloom Vase 1 is made of glazed ceramic with a slender base gently ballooning to a half-enclosed top which envelopes the flowers. Benjamin Graindorge, who has lived and worked in Japan, took his inspirations from the ancient Japanese tradition of flower arrangement (Ikebana, or the way of the flower), which sees the vase as a fundamental part of the overall composition. His contemporary interpretation results in a vessel that not only frames any flower arrangement beautifully but is also playful and elegant on its own.

After a collaboration of more than ten years, Dandelion is Burkhard Dämmer’s latest contribution to LZF.
Dandelion can be considered as one single lamp or a combination of lamps.

The result is a very original lamp, a geometric puzzle of light which resembles one of the most basic forms of life.
The Dandelion is available in 2 LED dimmer switches: LED dimmable 0-10V or LED dimmable Bluetooth.
