Lodes, the long-established Italian contemporary lighting company, has launched a preview of its 2021 collection of products: Easy Peasy by Design Curator Luca Nichetto and Random Solo by design collaborator Chia-Ying Lee. These product launches reflect the brand’s refreshed approach to manufacturing innovation and contemporary design, whilst heralding the company’s recent rebrand on the occasion of its 70th anniversary.
Easy Peasy table lamp by Luca Nichetto
With a sculptural and recognisable form reminiscing the shape of bells, Easy Peasy is a set of portable and rechargeable table lamps, consisting of two rounded elements, a body and a knob. Made of blown glass and metal, Easy Peasy allows for personal customisation of the living spaces. Its portability, different shapes and colours, and the dim-to-warm functionality of its light source allow users to connect, play and interact with the variable configuration options.
Available in four colour combinations (Chestnut, Flamingo, Lagoon and Kelp), Easy Peasy integrates different surfaces, creating a tactile diversity with its glass, plastic and metal components. The body of the lamp features a metal base housing the LED light source and a methacrylate diffuser wrapped by a glass bell which filters the light. On top, a distinctive rounded knob allows to turn the lamp on and off, and to dim the intensity and warmth of the light.
As the knob is rotated, the light adjusts gradually with its dim-to-warm LED technology, whilst the micro-USB socket at the base allows to recharge the battery, allowing multiple uses in different environments and settings. The base is also carefully designed to include the switch, a cable connection and a rubber ring to increase stability.
Random Solo pendant by Chia-Ying Lee
Designed by Chia-Ying Lee, Random Solo progresses the design of the existing Random range by isolating the original three-piece cluster and adding two new spherical, blown-glass lamps.
Available in five sizes (12, 14, 18, 23 and 28 cm) and two colour temperatures (2700k and 3000k), the modularity and different finishes offer ample freedom to compose harmonies of lights in a dynamic communication between them and the environment in which they are placed.
Resembling the form of floating bubbles, Random Solo creates enchanting compositions, whether in one colour or combining its six different finishes (clear, chrome, gold, rose gold, glossy smoke and the new frosted white).
The frosted white finish also changes the perception of the volume and colour of the sphere, creating a vibrating visual effect to the human eye. Random Solo is also easy to maintain and clean with the glass hermetically sealed, concealing the light source and preventing dust from entering the sphere.
“The launch of new products demonstrates our commitment to progressing creativity, diversity and innovation at the company as we continue to expand our portfolio of competitive high-quality products. Easy Peasy and Random Solo embody the evolution of our company into an international leader creating innovative and inspirational lighting for any atmosphere and setting.”– Massimiliano Tosetto, General Manager of Lodes
