Good Design Awards Good Design Part 2
The luminaires Witch, Colage, Aro and Eghoor-01 of LEUCOS, S.p.A. received the Good Design Award 2011, the prestigious international prize dedicated to excellence in design, promoted by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and by the European Center for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Created in 1950 from an idea of Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann Jr., every year the Good Design Award goes to designers and companies for the most innovative products.
Born from Marco Piva’s creative talent, the clean, essential style of Witch is exalted by the transparency of the material that reveals a shape in the shape, thanks to the partial sublimation of aluminum deposited on pure crystal. The most advanced technology meets a traditional gesture.
Colage – The luminaire designed by Danilo De Rossi is an additional evidence of the company’s expertise with glass. The bas-relief is the result of the annealing process of glass strips in silky white, on which a trace of white or gray strips is laid, just like a fossilized finding of the organic, almost radical action of nature.
Aro – Jorge Pensi has designed a shape that expresses the synthesis of motion suspended in space. A handmade crystal with a shaded cover made of sublimated aluminum for a lamp unique in the world. A synthesis between design and expressive strength.
Eghoor-01 – Designed by Danilo De Rossi, it appears as a techno-organic bulb coming from the future, which grows and lives synthetically, lighting up the space. The plasticity of white is the absolute protagonist of the almost lunar design, still with signs of classical design.
Absolute clean lines, appealing creations and extreme elegance make Leucos a guarantee of excellence in international lighting design. With technological innovation and careful respect of millenary glass art traditions, Leucos creates a timeless style for elegant and creative lighting solutions. Design, in the respect of tradition, with a touch of innovation.
Once again, the Good Design Award is an evidence of the great attention paid by LEUCOS to design and technology, as well as to the recovery of the noble past represented by Murano glass works, guaranteeing the high quality typical of glass artists from the Venetian island.
Just like the other winners of the GOOD DESIGNTM Award 2011, Witch, Colage, Aro and Eghoor-01 can be found in the gallery of the Chicago Athenaeum Museum at http://www.chi-atheanaeum.org
