Announcing new designers and brand new lamps in the pipeline

February 13, 2020 4:42 pm Published by

LZF is delighted to be working with two new designers, Mayice Studio and Mikiya Kobayashi, on the design and development of several original and innovative lighting fixtures. In the pipeline, the brand new lamps will be presented at Frankfurt Light + Building, 8–13 March 2020.

Mayice Studio

Madrid-based Mayice Studio, a multidisciplinary product design and architecture practice, was established in 2013 by Imanol Calderón Elósegui and Marta Alonso Yebra. With a sharp focus on materials—respecting both history and functionality—each design by Mayice Studio is presented with its own inherent personality, and aims to reflect the soul of a material.

In much of Mayice Studio’s work, we find an intelligent dialogue between craft and technology. The Filamento light is an especially pertinent example: a sculptural piece made of a single length of curving glass, Filamento is a study of how light travels through concave and convex forms. When illuminated, the effect is a laser-like ‘filament of light’, that extends from one end of the lamp to the other. When the light is off, the design has a wonderfully ornamental appearance. Filamento is available in both horizontal and vertical configurations. Mayice Studio has experimented with glass in other lighting designs, including the bijou Blow Lamp and the Rfc+ suspension lamp collection, designed for the Royal Glass Factory of La Granja, and made using a number of historic moulds.

Other notable projects by Mayice Studio include: Buit, an outdoor furniture collection designed for Gandia Blasco, Skywalk, a cantilevered glass walkway on the Rock of Gibraltar, and Ray, an artisanal, multifunctional stingray-like table.

For LZF, Mayice Studio has created two new lighting designs: Dune and Eris. The designs combine mouth-blown glass and handmade wood veneer, a first for LZF.

Mikiya Kobayashi

Tokyo-based Japanese designer Mikiya Kobayashi established his eponymous studio in 2006. In his creative process, Kobayashi is focused more on the sensitive perception of a design, rather than how it will actually be used. In true Japanese tradition, Kobayashi has a long-standing relationship with wood and has employed this natural material in a number of projects. For Kobayashi, it is important that he remains connected with his cultural heritage, while also combining the past with modern-day practices and innovation.

Mikiya Kobayashi has worked on a number of built projects, including cafe design, retail and showroom spaces. His many product designs mix a range of materials (although wood is foremost) and uses. They include: ILY-Ai, a playful and ergonomic personal mobility vehicle for Aisin, Side Table, a smart purpose-built table for Bang & Olufsen’s Beosound 2 speaker, and Donut, a stool for Diabla (a Gandia Blasco brand). Kobayashi has also designed a number of furniture pieces, such as the IT1 Table and IC1 Mast Chair, for Implements, his own shop in Himonya, Tokyo.
