Salone  del Mobile’s bustling halls are also hosting the massive Euroluce lighting show, with standout fixtures by  Claesson Koivisto Rune, Karim Rashid and Shigeru Ban.

1. With its exaggerated organic form, Karim Rashid’s Nearco for Artemide is quintessential Rashid. As a ceiling or recessed lamp, the fixture’s light source is hidden in the central arm. Made from moulded polyethlyne, Nearco comes in a mirror or matte white finish.

2. A personal favourite, Shigeru Ban’s Yumi for FontanaArte is a super-svelte floor lamp made from a composite material. Its seamless lamp head is equipped thin an 18-Watt LED strip.

3. Providing a warm glow, Claesson Koivisto Rune’s Baklava lamp for Swedish manufacturer Örsjö is shrouded in three layers of fabric that are secured with a delicate bow.
