July/August 2019

From a groundbreaking seaside museum in China to an elegant new sofa by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Azure’s July/August issue unveils the 20 winners of the ninth annual AZ Awards!

1 Kin by Oluce

Francesco Rota re-interprets the conical pendant, drawing inspiration from traditional Chinese roof treatments, to create this LED version. The cast aluminum fixture is dimmable and comes in white, black or this über-trendy glossy copper.

2 Halo by Vibia

In these ethereal and artfully arranged rings, LED strips are sandwiched between white matte-lacquer frames and razor-thin PMMA diffusers. The pendants, designed by Martin Azúa, also come in rods of varying lengths.

3 Clochard by Martinelli Luce

This fixture by Studio Orlandini Design is no ordinary lamp. Inspired by the multi-functionality of smartphones, the designers affixed a tabletop surface to the cane-shaped fixture, transforming it into a side table or nightstand. With its single leg and squared off back, it can rest against any wall without the need for special wiring.

4 Yoko by Foscarini

Norwegian studio Anderssen & Voll are about to unveil their first collaboration with Italy’s Foscarini. While the duo’s goal was to create an alternative to glass, details about the materials and process they used to come up with their bulbous light will be carefully guarded until Milan Design Week. Stay tuned…

5 Stelle Filanti by Venini

Atelier Oï has created this hand-blown glass diffuser suspended in a stunningly intricate web of leather strips. The dramatic effect is twofold: the contrasting elements create an an intriguing mix of solids, voids and textures, and the netting casts bold geometric shadows. Based in Switzerland, Atelier Oï recently used leather strips to fashion a hammock and stool for Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades collection of wildly imaginative travel accessories.

6 Bocci‘s 57 Series

Vancouver’s Omer Arbel is presenting the latest addition to his spectacular collection of illuminated glass orbs. In the glass-blowing process, pockets of air are intentionally trapped in the globe and only revealed when the fixture is turned on.
