Creatures, Corona and Pacis by Nigel Coates for Slamp

Milan 09: British architect and designer Nigel Coates exhibited three lamps designed for Italian lighting company Slamp at Euroluce in Milan last week.

The ceiling-mounted lights are called Creatures (top image), Corona (above) and Pacis (below).

The following is from Slamp:

Slamp launches new Lighting Collection at Euroluce 2009

Slamp, the innovative Italian lighting company, will launch three new lighting collections by the celebrated designer Nigel Coates at Euroluce (22-27 April 2009), the eagerly-awaited International Lighting Exhibition that runs alongside Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan.

Since their inception in 1994, this Rome-based company has been dedicated to creating lights with character; lights that deliver a flash of artistry. Slamp are experts at exploring and playing with the effects of light and shade in a decorative and original way. Over the past fifteen years they have commissioned internationally famous designers for their lighting ranges both for the home and for public spaces. In the new collections, Creatures, Corona and Pacis, Nigel Coates explores ways of working with light and colour, to create witty yet affordable products.

The shapes of the sea urchin inspired the exquisite new Creatures ceiling lights. Here the combination of various densities and shapes of subtly graded colours and milky opal ‘spines’ give a stature, quality and atmosphere to any room, whether a bar, restaurant or an important space in your home. Available in three different sizes and colours (green, blue and orange), they can be used individually to dramatic effect, or could be hung together for more impact.

Ceilings have been waiting for the delectable and decorative Corona, an opaline circular pendant ceiling light that appears as though it is flying through the air. The innovative use of curved diamond shapes around a core of nine lamps results in a fitting that can transform a room, while the ability to angle the light, adds a complexity and richness to potential lighting effects.

Pacis is an innovative and opulent ceiling light that fits magnetically over the light-fitting. Its outer form evokes an Olympian crown of laurel leaves while its core is made up of crystal with LEDs and a low energy halogen. It is available in two different sizes and in two different finishes, white and gold.

All of Slamp’s lights embrace energy saving lamps and apply technologically advanced materials such as the light diffusing Opalflex® and the optically complex Cristalflex®. The use of these cutting edge technologically advanced materials has enabled Coates to create a collection of sophisticated and flexible lighting that complements Slamp’s existing lighting ranges.
