TEO – Timeless Everyday Objects – stands for high quality products designed with a simple beauty and a passion for detail, suitable for everyday life. Its product portfolio comprises lighting, furniture and home accessories.
TEO is delighted to reveal that Awa Lighting Series, designed by Lena Billmeier and David Bau, has been honoured with the German Design Award 2018 in the category of lighting.
The Awa Series‘s design is inspired by inflatable Japanese construction site lamps and by the concept of blowing itself, like to blow glass or to blow up a bubble-gum. In Japanese, Awa literally means bubble and as the name refers to the soft volume of the glass body in contrast to its delicate and minimalistic fixture system.
Awa is built modular, the same fixture can be used for large and small pendants, as well as for table and floor lights.
The Jury Statement says, “The Awa provides lovely atmospheric lighting thanks to its large, convex glass luminaires. The simple frame creates an exciting contrast with the luminaire per se, and the holder connects the two elements in a harmonious and flowing fashion.”
