Classic styles are as popular as ever when it comes to the world of lighting, according to one of Australia’s leading lighting suppliers, Mondoluce.
Known for its extensive selection of products from the world’s finest lighting designers, Mondoluce represents exclusive brands from Italy, including Nemo, Axolight, Rotaliana, Masiero, Icone Luce, Vistosi and Cangini & Tucci.
Attending April’s Euroluce 2023 international lighting fair in Milan, the team from Mondoluce confirmed many architects and designers still favour classic styles, with the designs of luminaries such as Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand (for Nemo Lighting) still very much in demand.
With famed products such as the Lampe de Marseille, the La Roche Wall Light and the Projecteur 365 Pendant, Le Corbusier’s designs are distinguished by their lines and geometric colour blocks, combining primary forms such as cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders and pyramids. Le Corbusier’s unique perspectives saw him become one of the most important designers of all time, with his products found across Europe, Japan, India, and North and South America - and in 2023, his design legacy is as strong as ever.
To Charlotte Perriand, lamps were not a decorative element added to a space for no reason, but rather to serve a functional and technical purpose. Her timeless and minimalist lamp designs, which include the Pivotante a Poser, the Lampe de Bureau and the Applique A Volet Pivotant, are beautifully conceived objects designed to answer specific needs. With unique structures designed to rotate and bend and adjust to our needs, Perriand’s creations continue to meet the demands of the modern world.
GIVING CLASSICS A NEW LEASE ON LIFE
Yet modern designers and manufacturers aren’t resting on their laurels, with the call for classic products seeing the expansion of time-honoured lighting ranges. This has led to world-renowned architects such as Arihiro Miyake and Bernhard Osann weighing in with their own spin on classic products, and the introduction of new colour ranges to modernise traditional colour palettes. Even beloved originals such as the Lampe de Bureau table lamp have been given a modern treatment, with its conversion to a wall light introducing this classic design to a whole new range of consumers.
Should you wish to discuss which classic lighting styles suit your design requirements, Mondoluce’s team of industry experts is now available to provide lighting design consultations to customers in the company’s Sydney and Melbourne showrooms.
