Italian light mavens iGuzzini bring lighting to the future with the recent Sydney launch of the Laser Blade XS.
June 15th, 2017
Held at the brand’s iconic waterfront showroom, the recent Sydney launch of iGuzzini’s new Laser blade XS celebrated an icon of miniaturisation and precision. The Laser Blade XS perfectly integrates with architecture to create unprecedented expressive shapes with a new definition for the relationship between space, light and design.
iGuzzini’s Laser Blade range has been an icon of innovation since its launch several years ago. It revolutionised the concept of the downlight by being the first linear downlight to perfectly integrate into architecture, transforming small invisible LEDs into powerful, uniform circles of light. This award-winning range, which includes Laser Blade XL, Laser Blade L, Laser Blade, Laser Blade System53 and Laser Blade In Out, has evolved to offer a number of state-of-the-art solutions which have been used in a number of locally and internationally prestigious projects, such as the European Council in Brussels (2016), the Alfa Romeo Historical Museum in Arese, Italy (2015), Athens international airport (2014) and Eatitaly building in Chicago (2014).
Laser Blade XS ‘The Blade’ is the next stage in the evolution. It is an icon of miniaturisation, a masterpiece of accuracy that cuts through ceilings and disappears into grooves just 28mm wide to provide the ultimate experience in visual comfort and maximum expression of architecture.
This product meets the needs of architects and lighting designers looking to show light without revealing its source. The seemingly unfeasible minaturisation has been made possible through innovative micro-optics, microchips, nanotechnology and micro-solutions for heat dissipation.
“We are proud to present such an innovative product like Laser Blade XS ‘The Blade’. iGuzzini’s last-born is an additional evolution in our offer of design solutions for perfect integration in interiors. Such a breakthrough is made possible by our vast technological know-how”, said Massimiliano Guzzini, Business Innovation & Networking Director at iGuzzini.
The night was a star-studded glamour fest, featuring appearances from iconic design industry figures and Australian media personalities.
