Ray Power´s three-dimensional passion
Escape is an avant-garde pendant with a smart domino-like structure. Its self-supporting veneer panels give the impression of falling into a ring of light, their form-defying gravity.
Designed by Ray Power, Escape is a truly handsome, self-assured light. While enjoying a little bit of swagger and appearing fairly pleased with itself, the Escape pendant’s manner is bright and buoyant. Moreover, Escape is entirely affable, having an approachable quality that is perfect for any well turned out setting.
Ray Power was born in Ireland in 1975 and graduated from the Dublin Institute of Technology in 1997, before moving to Spain. He has collaborated with LZF Lamps since 1998. Ray’s Air (2008) and Link (2007) lamps for LZF were awarded the Red Dot and Chicago Good Design awards respectively. Most recently, his Swirl pendant was accorded a 2017 Special Mention by the German Design Council.
Swirl excites the eye with its eddying and whirling folds, their twisting twirl a sensuous feat. Swirl is an accomplished pendant, its form thoughtfully considered and sculptured.
Power’s designs are typically based on geometry and his predilection for creating three-dimensional forms from flat materials (wood veneer). Swirl is no exception; its precise contours brought to life in stereo. With a soulful character and presence, the Swirl lamp will vibe well with any interior. When a light is striking from every angle, one might expect more than a hint of conceit. And yet Swirl is wholly modest, its beauty inspiring and uplighting.
Ray’s work has been exhibited on the international stage: in Milan, Valencia, Dublin, Madrid and Tokyo. Today, he continues to work on lighting design projects for LZF Lamps.
