The Bicoca portable lamp by Christophe Mathieu and the Jaima outdoor floor lamp by Joan Gaspar, both introduced by Marset in 2017, have received the 2018 Design Plus award, promoted by Light + Building show in Frankfurt.
The jury chose the Jaima and Bicoca with special consideration for the concepts of their designs, their extraordinary quality, and their technical and ecological innovation. The Design Plus is an international recognition to the highest quality lighting design.
The Bicoca is a portable, rechargeable, lightweight, colorful, low-energy lamp that projects an intimate light, bringing warmth to any personal space.
With the Jaima collection, light is the shade and weaver of emotions. Using the language of textiles, the designer tries not only to give form but also to shape the light—through the methods of dressmaking—using a flexible, ductile material that gently sifts the light.
The Design Plus prizes are organised by the Frankfurt-based trade fair Light + Building, in collaboration with the German Design Council. The award ceremony will take place on March 18. All the products to have won this prize will be on display for the entire duration of the show from March 18 to 23.
