LZF is an international brand recognized for its details and clear, differentiated image. LZF designs experiences through the use of light, where people and spaces mix, creating their own unique atmosphere. Each of these lamps is made by hand using wood veneer, with the same passion of enveloping the light that Marivi Calvo and Sandro Tothill, the heart of LZF, started in 1993.
LZF invites you to discover their latest designs and to travel with them through more than 20 years of true love for wood and light at their booth, #1733, during ICFF May 21-24.
Banga: The Parasol Light
Designed by Yonoh, the Banga pendant exemplifies the Valencia-based creative design studio’s quest to bring an understanding and functionality, a freshness and uniqueness, to its creations. Available in two sizes, Banga is crafted using a series of individual sheets of veneer, each one connected via a lustrous metallic strip.
Stitches: The Embroidered Light
Egbert-Jan Lam of Netherlands-based Burojet Design Studio has designed and ‘embroidered’ a new family of lamps for LZF.
Known as Stitches, veneer lengths are crafted in a traditional sewing fashion: by marking out a pattern and cutting it. Just as a dressmaker makes a dress or a tailor makes a suit, the Stitches pattern is repeated to produce an individual lamp-there are presently four lamps in the Stitches family.
With its four original Stitches models-known as Mopti, Tombuctú, Djenné and Bamako-LZF has created an aesthetic and innovative range of handmade wood lamps. Each lamp is named after a town or city in Mali, as their unique shapes allude to the adobe mosques found across the West African nation. Moreover, Mali has a long history as a producer of embroidery, something embodied in Stitches.
Kim: The Lattice Light
In Kim we find a natural wood veneer shell encircled by interlacing form-pressed laminate strips. Designed by Mariví Calvo, the Kim pendant is at once modest and unconstrained, its clean spherical shape leaves space for the user’s own self-expression.
The Kim lamp’s latticework facade accentuates the wood’s texture and grain when lit. Available in two sizes, Kim is an elegant and natural beauty; a classic pendant with an uninhibited, easy air.
Swirl: The Soulful Light
The Swirl excites the eye with its eddying and whirling folds, their twisting twirl is a sensuous feat. Designed by Ray Power, 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. The Swirl is no exception, its precise contours brought to life in this handsome profile.
Escape Large: The Assured Light
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.
