Carlo Volf is known for his attention to detail, with design and minimalism at the heart of his lighting designs. "Good light is essential for our well-being, so the lamp must provide optimal illumination," explains Carlo. To achieve this, the designer works meticulously on every detail, paying special attention to every shape when designing the shades and lampshades of his lamps. Some of his most famous designs for Design For The People are the Aver and Emition collections of ceiling lamps.
The Glossy table lamp is the epitome of elegant and sophisticated design. Danish designer Maria Berntsen has created a table lamp that exudes Nordic minimalism. The combination of exclusive materials such as marble, brass and opal white glass contribute to the creation of an incredibly elegant design. The designer manages to create a perfect balance between design and materials, combining a light glass shade with a marble base. Glossy gets its name from the shiny surface of the opal white glass, which lets the light shine through creating a soft and comfortable lighting.
The Strap collection is born from the combination of metal and leather, two materials that fit perfectly with the Nordic lighting style. As the name suggests, the main feature of these lamps is the elegant and decorative leather strip at the top of the lampshade. Each lamp model in the Strap collection includes two interchangeable leather strips, in black or natural leather, for different combinations with the finish of the metal lampshades. Designed by Bjørn + Balle, the Strap lamps in all their versions are perfect for adding a Nordic touch to your home lighting.
Designed by Bønnelycke MDD, the award-winning Artist collection of ceiling lamps offers a contemporary design with simple shapes. As the name suggests, the designer draws inspiration from the world of music and the shapes offered by drum cymbals. It features integrated LED lighting and a large opalised diffuser at the bottom of the shade. Destined to become a classic, the Artist LED pendant lamp is perfect for providing soft, diffused lighting in rooms in the home. You can install the lamp on the kitchen ceiling illuminating the worktop or in the living room as table lighting.
The Stay collection offers a modern yet timeless design, with lamps that are characterised by their versatility and slanting open shade. The Stay ceiling lamp emits a soft and comfortable illumination above and below, ideal for creating cosy atmospheres in moments around the table in the living room. Maria Bertsen's idea with the Stay collection is "to create a series of timelessly designed lamps that fit into modern style homes, making use of dimmable LED lighting to achieve perfect light for moments of reading or study.
