Product: Eternal Light
Manufacturer: Shuter, China
The Eternal Light table lamp consists of a luminaire body with LED light strips and a spinning top. When the latter is set in motion, the lamp switches on. The spinning top continues to rotate with the help of a magnet on its bottom side and an electromagnetic coil inside the lamp until it is stopped manually. Only then the light turns off. Alternatively, the Eternal Light can be switched on by touching the centre of the surface.
Danny Venlet, CEO of Studio Venlet and Red Dot juror, presents the Eternal Light table lamp from the Chinese manufacturer “Shuter”. The product was awarded a Red Dot in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020 for its innovative approach.
ROCKY.ART tiles from V&B Fliesen
Manufacturer: V&B Fliesen, Germany
The glazed porcelain stoneware tiles “ROCKY.ART” from Villeroy & Boch combine rustic natural stone and concrete. This symbiosis catches the eye and is the basis of the wall and floor covering. The fine stoneware unites pristine beauty with creativity. The highly magnified hydrangea blossom details in abstract patterns and surrealist colours go with all the basic tiles. Due to its special glass overlay, the decor creates a sculptured, three-dimensional look.
