Countdown to Light+Building: 9 Brilliant Lights

The biennial Frankfurt trade fairon March 30 to April 4, showcases the best in technical, architectural and decorative lighting. Here is a selection of launches we’re looking forward to, from the likes of Zumtobel, Ingo Maurer and Tobias Grau.

2 Nice by Tobias Grau

With such finishes as copper, polished chrome, or matte black, Tobias Grau’s teardrop suspension lamps are equipped with colour-matched cables. The LED fixtures are fitted with an optical lens that reduces glare, and can be integrated with track systems.

3 Gimball by Targetti

One of two new outdoor introductions from Targetti, this 12-watt LED lamp diffuses defined beams, super sport or flood, through acrylic lenses that can project illumination onto surfaces as far as 30 metres away.

4 Lisgo Sky by Oligo

Height adjustable up to five metres, Lisgo Sky touts a super slim profile at only 15 millimetres wide. Aesthetically daring, the dimmable fixture is also smart: it remembers its most recent brightness so that it can be switched back if you want to return to your preferred setting.

6 Light Structure by Ingo Maurer

In 1970, Peter Hamburger and Ingo Maurer released Light Structure – a sculptural fixture made of sticklike bulbs that were discontinued at the turn of the millennium. Last year, the German brand released the prototype of a new LED version at Milan’s Euroluce light fair, which is now in production, as a table or suspension lamp.
