The collaboration between international design agency Hangar Design Group and Italian lighting producer Vistosi – which started in 2014 with Peggy, a special lighting project for the Peggy Guggenheim Museum Cafè in Venice – goes on.
Designed by Jens Fager, GRAIN brings a new perspective to the pendant lamp by combining a classic minimalistic design using innovative new materials. The original composite used in the lamp’s construction adds an unexpected softness and warmth to GRAIN giving its simple form plenty of character. Small grains of fibre in the lamp’s material bring subtle changes in colour and shade.
The light is available in six different colours – black, grey, red, white, green and natural cork. In addition, Muuto introduces a brand new pendant to the lighting range. Ambit pendant is designed by TAF architects – a distinguished Stockholm-based design and architecture studio (below).
Ambit´s lampshade is made from old brazier traditions, is press spun, polished and finally painted by hand. Head to the website to buy: www.muuto.com
