It’s all about lighting in this month’s issue, from DALD’s stunning scheme for The United Arab Emirates Pavilion at the 2015 Milan Expo which has recently opened to the public, to WIN Awards judge Paul Nulty’s solution for the new 37,000 sq. ft retail space, the Body Shop in London’s flagship store in Selfridges.
We are also featuring a new entry in this year’s Lighting Projects category by Electrolight, who have designed a sophisticated lighting scheme for Corrs Chamber Westgarth, a leading law firm in Melbourne. We have a charming lamp by Malgorzata Mozolewska, made from a metal fabric woven to reflect light that is produced in Poland by local artisans, and we are delighted to showcase a new project by Licht Kunst Licht, winners of the WIN Lighting Projects category in 2014 who have designed a lighting scheme for an architecturally sensitive building that once housed a iron casting facility.
Gail meets Sebastian Scherer, creative director and CEO of NEO/CRAFT. In 2015 Sebastian debuted the iridescent crystal lamp, Iris, at IMM Cologne. The glass globe took nearly two years to develop and has since scooped a number of accolades including the WIN Lighting Products Award in 2015. Sebastian Scherer Studio is soon to move to a new premises and exhibition space housed within an historic former factory near the banks of Berlin’s Rummerlsburger, a city Sebastian loves for its architectural influences and open space.
