Molteni – Outdoor Collection

The Outdoor Collection encompasses several concepts that exist under a singular organic vision. The Landmark Collection features a highly anticipated reissue of famed designer Luca Meda’s classic Palinfrasca Sofa, a marvel of Italian savoir-faire and fine craftsmanship. Vincent Van Duysen’s Timeout Collection presents an elegant offering of Outdoor essentials inspired by the smooth forms of Modernist architecture. While the Heritage Collection comprises a reissue of two of Gio Ponti’s most beloved armchairs. Tying the collections together are new rugs by Van Duysen himself, Nicola Gallizia and Marta Ferri, who also curated a sophisticated original Outdoor textile collection, defined by subtle patterns, rich fabrics and warm tones. And finally, two exceptional standalone pieces from Foster + Partners and Ron Gilad, which dialog seamlessly with the collection as a whole.

Roche Bobois – Bombom

For Roche Bobois, Joana Vasconcelos has once again taken up the challenge of designing pieces that will interact with a wider audience, to spread her free and unfettered vision of indoor and outdoor living spaces. Each piece of the Bombom collection expresses Joana Vasconcelos’ artistic vision as applied to comfort and decoration: bold, delectable and sometimes deliciously surprising shapes. The artist upholstered each piece based on a color palette inspired by the pastelhued houses in Lisbon’s Old Town, summoning muted sunset tones. The Bombom collection by Joana Vasconcelos is a creative, optimistic set of sofas, cocktail tables, rugs and ceramics for indoor and outdoor use

Kettal – Grand Bitta

Grand Bitta incorporates two new models into the collection, a dining armchair and a daybed. Gran Bitta is a warm, comfortable collection which features a combination of aluminium frames with braided polyester cords, teak and stone table tops.

Tribú – Suro table, Amanu collection

Lamp novelties

Vibia – Dama, Africa

An Exercise in Poise: Introducing DAMA.⁠
DAMA connects the charm of tradition with the finesse of contemporary lighting. A homage to the classic lamp, the collection looks beyond the simplicity of a traditional shade and frame, softening and refining the design in both form and material.
First and foremost an object of desire, AFRICA stands out for its finesse in aesthetics, creating an unmistakable connection with ancient artistic practices. Poetic and sleek, this portable lamp explores beauty, functionality and the essence of humanity.⁠

Flos – Black Flag, Workmates, Emi

With a name borrowed from the famous punk rock band, you would expect Black Flag by Konstantin Grcic to embrace disruptive design. And it doesn’t disappoint. The new lamp embodies the rebellious spirit of its namesake with a minimal artistic form that extends out into a bold and highly functional luminaire.
Introducing the new workspace solution by Flos Architectural. Workmates is a contemporary family of luminaires that includes suspension, ceiling, track and floor designs. Unique in the office sector, their extremely subtle forms are paired with state-of-the-art technology that emits light both upwards and downwards for optimum wellbeing in the workplace.
Erwan Bouroullec brings professional technology and lighting quality into the home with Emi, the new luminaire that creates light from shadow. Using Flos technology, invisible light sources reflect light off walls, ceilings or any other surface they might encounter while the body remains dark. The effect is the utmost visual comfort combined with contemporary design and geometry.
Wherever light is needed, Bilboquet will oblige. Playful yet precise, Canadian designer Philippe Malouin’s first lamp for Flos was inspired both by a 16th-century French ball game and by magnetic ball joints. The result is a fully adjustable future-proof lamp that exudes personality.
Intimately familiar with Italy’s unique craft panorama, Flos explores the world of ceramics for the first time with Céramique, the new and entirely handcrafted lamp by Ronan Bouroullec.
A special selection of two brand new outdoor solutions – Ingraze and Spine 0 by Vincent Van Duysen – are reaffirming the importance and coherence of the Flos Outdoor Manifesto.

Bomma – Divina

Divina lights are perfect fit for intimate interiors, especially suitable for private settings, homes and apartments. This new collection is ideal for use above a desk or dining table, thanks to the light source located within the bottom of the cylindrical mounting body. Its direct light provides the perfect conditions for work, dining or studying. Get inspired by timeless concept of a spherical glass body with the delicate touch of a color gradient. Michaela Tomišková and Jakub Janďourek of the DECHEM Studio designed new minimalistic collection.

Moooi – Pallana

Practically playful! The Pallana Light by IDEO is a suspended lighting fixture that support you in the balancing act that is daily life. Pallana’s mechanically joined classic shapes create a dynamic and adaptable design, making it a playful task light. Spin the ring lights to assist you when working, eating, cooking, helping your children with homework, or whatever occasion. Pallana Light is available in two muted colours to match any interior style and colour palette. The added softness of the matte textured rings and knitted fabric sets Pallana apart from traditional finish choices. With the dim-to-warm functionality, you can control the colour temperature and light intensity simultaneously! Pallana brings touch of exuberance to any room, while supporting your flow activities and moods throughout the day.

+1 Luceplan – Costanza Open Air suspension version, Illan wall lamp, Millimetro, Koinè wall version and suspension, Liiu, Alibel

The iconic Grande Costanza Open Air now offers a new suspension version for the lighting of terraces and porticos, still with exceptional class and efficiency. Grande Costanza Open Air is the evolution of Costanza, one of the icons of Luceplan, which has given rise to a true family.
Light form, technological innovation and sustainability are the traits of the new wall version of Illan designed by Zsuzsanna Horvath for Luceplan. The Illan wall lamp is formed by an element of die-cast aluminium attached to the wall, containing an LED source that emits a soft, warm glow.
The Millimetro family of lamps designed by Daniel Rybakken for Luceplan has been expanded. The ceiling version with a diameter of 85 cm has been joined by a smaller model, while a new wall-mounted version completes the range. The lamp is thus able to create games of light and perspectives on the surrounding space that become even more engaging and refined.
The Koinè family of lamps continues to grow. The new entries offer even more flexible and versatile solutions, in line with the design and the technical lighting research behind the project.
Liiu is a new, light and flexible system of suspension lamps, the result of bold research on the part of Luceplan to create high-performance lighting designs whose main feature is an ethereal, poetic overall image.
Alibel lamp system designed marks the beginning of a new line of research on the creation of track lighting, a typology usually associated with more technical contexts, reinterpreted in a decorative way in this collection. The project takes its cue from the natural world and suggests the image of a small insect resting on a pool of water, creating concentric circles.
