THE LOFT
Location
Berlin
Year
2020

Lighting design planning for a 2-story LOFT in Berlin Steglizt. 

The concept idea was to enhance the beautiful architectural ceiling in the public areas of the penthouse with indirect and continuous light lines. 

The soft and dimmable indirect light will create a nice and calm atmosphere for the living spaces, thanks to the homogenous light. 

In the private areas, on the other hand,  the use of  adjustable surface-mounted luminaires with controlled light beams and optics will lit the floor in a focused way while the ceiling will be lit gently by some spill light.

The volume of the stairs that connects the 2 floors both physically and visually is treated differently. A series of wall washer will lit the wall on which the stairs leans on. 

In the upper floor, in front of each perimetrical columns we planned suspended luminaries that can be adjusted in hight by the clients. These luminaries, when placed very low, almost as if they were touching the floor with the light, they create an intimate atmosphere.

MESSAGE IN A DRIVER – DIFFUSED
Location
Berlin
Year
2020

MESSAGE IN A DRIVER – DIFFUSED is a custom-made suspended lighting fixture consisting of a milky PMMA tube and a transparent cylindrical pendulum in which driver and cabling are housed. 

The pendulum is suspended from the floor and thanks to its weight it prevents the lamp from unnecessary swinging.

The lamp has been conceived and specifically designed for a warm, soft and indirect illumination of surfaces. When it´s on the lamp slightly glows, and when it´s off it becomes invisible, merging with the surrounding. 

The concept behind the design of “message in a driver” is to expose and reveal all technical components of the lighting fixture: the heatsink becomes the profile itself, the electrical wires are fully visible, the driver is store in a see-through cylinder that functions as pendulum and the electrical plug is transparent.

The open and essential design of the lighting fixture reflects our attention to details and respect for each of its elements. 

The absence of unnecessary components, the transparency of the materials and the display of technical parts reflect the honesty of our manifesto.

ALL THAT WE KNOW
Location
Copenhagen
Year
2019 – 2020

ALL THAT WE KNOW consists of six gigantic sculptures of well-known fruits and vegetables, each representing certain health properties, home remedies and other miraculous treatments. 

By carefully placing these sculptures on the courtyard of Herlev Hospital, the danish artist collective SUPERFLEX initiates a dialogue between traditional popular remedies and the prestigious scientific medicine, embodied in the powerful and dominating building.

The pear, carrot, potato, garlic, strawberry and broccoli have been used as home remedies with strong mythical component. 

The sculptures are individually lit by using floor mounted spotlights, with different types of optics to enhance their volume and texture.

The use of floodlights with spot optic emphasises the three-dimensionality of the beautiful detailed sculptures without distorting the spatial impression with excessive shadowing.

FARMINGTON LOBBY
Location
Farmington, CT
Year
2020

Architectural Lighting renovation planning of TRUMPF FARMINGTON LOBBY designed by Barkow – Leibinger, in Farmington, Connecticut, US. 

The renovation of the Lobby aims to make the entrance of the building clearly visibible in order to guide customers and visitors.

This goal has been achieved by replacing old surface-mounted fluorescent tubes with high quality LED multi-optic linear downlights, installed in the same position of the previous luminaries and by using the existing electrical outputs. 

By doing so, the alteration of the existing ceiling has been reduced to the minimum, achieving the best improvement with the less impact.  

The combination of different optics give the space a lighter and brighter atmosphere.

NEUT
Location
Berlin
Year
2019

NEUT is the renovation of a neurological praxis in Berlin-Charlottenburg. 

Given the deep and sensitive relation between light and brain, the design sees the use of controlled optics, dimmable light and flicker-free luminaries, in order to ensure a comfortable and calm environment to the patients with neurological conditions. 

As we were dealing with a rented space, we decided to use only standing, suspended and surface-mounted luminaries in order to allow flexibility and mobility to the client, in case of future relocation.

PURPLE.
Location
Berlin
Year
2018 – 2020

Purple. is a floor lamp offering two light beam directions.

By the 25° rotation of its massive black concrete base, the vertical pole – on which the light source is housed- can shine the light perpendicularly to a wall or can shine down the floor with a diagonal light beam angle, becoming a reading lamp.

The light uses a dim-to-warm technology with a smooth and beautiful light color transition, developed by LEDIM.

This allows the user not only to control the amount and intensity of the light but also the colour of it.

The design embraces the aesthetics of respect by exposing its components, cables, lens and cooling device.

The heat cooling is provided by a custom made heat pipe assembly, that has been designed by us and developed together with European Thermodynamics.

SOME PRECIOUS POISON
Location
Berlin
Year
2018 – 2020

SOME PRECIOUS POISON is our ongoing research project that reflects on the equation message : graphics = light : luminaire .

By using the light bulb, an iconic everyday object, as a metaphor, we explore and study the relation between content and medium and the way this relation is perceived and used in our design disciplines.

We conceive of the graphics and the luminaire as the tangible representation of, respectively, the content (message) and the phenomenon (light), which are not tangible per sé, but they become such through design (be it graphic, visual, product or lighting design).

The project is developed together with Studio Laucke Siebein, Berlin – Amsterdam.

Architectural lighting planning and interior design of a masionnette for a painter. Padua, Italy.

Light has a direct impact on how we feel within an interior space and it is one of the most crucial design elements we can use in order to ceate comfort, ambience and safety in our living spaces.

Thanks to the use of different textures of light in combination with various lighting typologies, the client can control and adjust the light according to his wishes and needs.

THRESHOLDS
Location
Venice
Year
2017 – 2018

Lighting installation proposal for THRESHOLDS, an art project by the italian artists Filippo Vogliazzo and Tommaso Gorla. 

Venice, 2018 – ongoing. 

This proposal, called “il bunker brilla / the bunker shines” aims to emphasise the distinctive character of the object: protection, camouflage and defence.
The lighting, an organic LED net, is like a protective cloak, that makes the architectural volume magic and creates – at the same time – a distance between the illuminated object and the observer. 

The light cloak covers the visible surfaces of the bunker and organically merges its limits with the surrounding vegetation, that has grown since this architecture has been abandoned after the end of the war.

The lighting net works with 60 RGBW LED modules of 100mm diameter, controlled by DMX protocol.
Colour, intensity and dynamic sequences can be controlled both completely and/or punctually for each of the individual modules.

MESSAGE IN A DRIVER is a custom-made suspended lamp consisting of a powder coated aluminium profile, a milky diffuser and a transparent cylindrical pendulum in which driver and cabling are housed.
The pendulum is suspended from the floor and thanks to its weight it prevents the lamp from unnecessary swinging. The lamp has been conceived and specifically designed for a warm and soft illumination of surfaces. However, thanks to the suspended pendulum the direction of the light source can be adjusted, providing both direct and indirect light according to wishes.
The concept behind the design of “message in a driver” is to expose and reveal all technical components of the lighting fixture: the heatsink becomes the profile itself, the electrical wires are fully visible, the driver is store in a see-through cylinder that functions as pendulum and the electrical plug is transparent.

CLOSET MONSTERS

CLOSET MONSTERS  are a closet, a sideboard and a night table.
The main idea behind the design concept comes from re-interpreting some ephemeral objects belonging to the outside world and their transposition in the inside, giving them a new function and a new context.
This a tribute to the radical italian design from the 80´s.

Materials: powder coated steel and timber.

The “coloset monster” family is currently under production

As A Ceremony supports a vegan lifestyle.

In a world where design seems to be appreciated only by the result, we protect the process. We respect time. We stand up for quality and experimentation. We support mistakes. We believe design does not solve problems: it creates desires. Designing is a never-ending question about existence. We believe that design can restore the power of sacredness. For this reason we abandon automatisms and return to the ceremony that life is.
