Austrian lighting brand Kalmar Werkstätten unveiled the Spinne 35 hanging lamp at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), the fair which was held from May 21 to 24, in New York. Spinne 35 is the latest addition to the recently launched Spinne family.
During Milan Design Week 2017, Spinne was introduced, a unique lighting system with numerous arrangement options. For ICFF New York, designers Garth Roberts and Erik B. Kreider created another Spinne hanging lamp with a bigger shade that is suitable for large-scale lighting above dining tables.
The Spinne 35 hanging lamp is the second version of the modular Spinne lighting system. It operates without ceiling electrification, its system of metal elements and an elegant textile cable guiding power from the nearest wall outlet to a cone-shaped glass shade. The Spinne suggests a contemporary attitude in the manner the adjustable cable wraps jauntily around a wall-mounted plate, or in the LEDs glowing from within the glass.
Spinne was designed by Garth Roberts and Erik Berg Kreider. Roberts, who is also Kalmar Werkstätten’s creative director, said: “Undertaking the design process with another creative mind is incredibly rewarding. The introduction of a new format of lighting, as well as new designers and new materials, inspired us to expand the brand to include Spinne”.
