Isola Design District - Bright Up Your Day Things are getting normal, people are starting to go out again without fear and days are shining. But there’s another thing that could bright up this time: Isola Design District’s designers. Have you guessed today’s theme? Yes, lighting! We choose some of the projects into our new community that stands out in the world for their particularly beauty and utility.   Galileo by Valentina Rocco Galileo is a directional led wall lamp created by Valentina Rocco. 100% recycled and recyclable. This lamp is inspired by the Moon and its circular movement around the Earth and aims to display how our economy should be today: circular, and no longer linear. Waste can turn into precious material: the frame of Galileo is made with the scraps deriving from the processing of steel, while the front is made of Black Dapple, a particular recycled plastic panel by Smile Plastic.   Trouvé by Cohors Trouvé is a table lamp created by six talented artists of the label Cohors. It has been designed and produced in The Netherlands by Marten van Middelkoop and it has been introduced to the market in four colors: orange, green, black and champagne-gold. This product creates a complete experience to the audience: it has its own soundtrack developed by Eric Magnée, art photography by Milan Boonstra, graphic design and animation by Joost Kraan and Eveline Schram, and Augmented Reality projected by Freek Rutkens.     In><Contro Collection by Formanuda In><Contro Collection is a limited series of furniture lights at the fringe of art and design, that uses the latest innovations in LED lighting technology and material manufacturing. This collection is designed to be touched and shaped by the audience, that’s why it is made of mobile marble bases and a flexible neon LED, that invites to interact with the products. As the name emphasizes, In><Contro Collection is a subtle but constant dialogue between oppositions, like art and design, luxury and ludic or classic material and new technologies, that culminates in a sensual products that gives a versatile lighting atmosphere.     Circular Wall Lamp by Wisse Trooster Why choosing between sustainability and aesthetics when you could have both? With Circular Wall Lamp, the designer shows that you don’t have to make any concessions. For this product, Trooster selected sustainable acrylics and sheet material made from recycled plastic, while the discs are combined with LED filament light tubes. Moreover, this lamp can completely be dismantled and the components reused or recycled.     Heartbeat by BioLogicDesign The Heartbeat Instrument is an interactive installation projected by BioLogicDesign that brings a soothing atmosphere. It is composed of hundreds of bulbs that can sense the heartbeat signal through audience touch, making the bulb light on. Moreover, it brings a bio-signal musicalization played by heartbeat synchronization. A truly interactive experience!   Junts by Encrú Junts is the design lamp created by Encrú in collaboration with 38 degrees design. This collection finds its identity in the fundamental geometric shapes: the circle and the rectangle. The stability is provided by a metal frame, while the movement by the wooden sphere with a magnet, used to re-direct the light, deconstructing the traditional idea that sees the two parts as always tied to one another!     Liuw by Studio Hedwich Hooghiemstra Liuw is the collection of light sculptures by Studio Hedwich Hooghiemstra that attempts to catch the moments of empty experiences, where the mind wonders while the eyes are left to focus on a single point. This spot is offered by this lamp, either turned on or off, while also enriching the atmosphere and the identity of its environment.     Rocklumìna by Coki Rocklumìna is the first energy-efficient lamp (A ++) with pure Italian rock salt crystals. The name is a combo between “Rock” – from which the crystals are extracted – and “Lumi”, the so-called non-electric ancient lighting sources in Italy. This table lamp, thanks to the double glass wall and the salt, diffuses soft light while naturally absorbing the relative humidity present in small rooms, improving the healthiness of the air and people. Pouring a few drops of essential oil on the upper part of the lamp, this lamp also turns into a diffuser!     Did we bright up your day? Discover these and more projects on Isola Design District!
