At long last, a European sophistication is introduced to the Australian market as Special Lights showcase Studio Italia Designâ€™s 2009 product range.
July 3rd, 2009
Never before seen in Australia, Studio Italia Design’s range of premium lights is set to inspire designers and architects nationwide.
The team at Studio Italia Design are renowned for their stunning, unblemished metals and intricate Murano glass which represents the passion and fervour of the generations of Italians who have practiced this art through history.
Special Lights acknowledged the need for such distinctive pieces to be amongst the broad design arena in Australia, and will present these products in July.
Amongst the compelling line of lights is designer Brian Rasmussen’s ‘UFO’ pendant which reflects an interweaving of emotional highs and lows.
The ‘UFO’ pendant is so thoughtfully crafted to reflect an individual’s personal feelings that it is available in an endless array of colours to provide every person with a product that literally sheds light on their own identity.
Also gaining attention is the Inpiega range, by Marco Ferreri, which creatively bestows warmth to what would ordinarily be considered cool metallic form.
Special Lights will further stir excitement with the Magnetita table lamp, which is constructed from two metal rods and a series of clamps to form an angular piece of art sure to inspire any office surrounding.
The range, which is designed, produced and assembled in Italy to guarantee ultimate craftsmanship, will compliment Australian design whilst ensuring global relevance.
