The Juicy pendant is logical, simple and functional. The various parts of the lamp; the wire, cone and shade come together seamlessly which makes the pendant seem like an organic whole. The light is warm and concentrated, but never dazzles the beholder, regardless of the angle from which you view it. Juicy’s glossy surface is broken elegantly by a shining ring where the cone turns into the shade. The shining ring serves several purposes: Partly it emphasizes the part where the lamp is separated for change of light source, and partly it emits a discrete light which elegantly illuminates the surface of the pendant. In strong daylight it can often be difficult to see whether a lamp is on or off. The shining ring helps determine that.
Towards the bottom Juicy is finished off with a honeycomb-filter, which effectively concentrates the light while preventing dazzling at the same time. It softens the light and contributes to the experience of a warm and friendly light – regardless of whether you use traditional low-energy light sources or the latest LED alternatives. Quite specifically, Juicy is created to utilise the light source technology of the future in the best way possible.
Brand & Designer
Lightyears takes pride in creating luminous lighting products that combine tradition and renewal. The core ambition of their collection lies in the fusion of the young and the established. They love the curiosity and boldness of the up-and-coming generation, and they respect the skill and the trained eye of the experienced designers.
Their collection offers modern interpretations of everyday lighting products, and they hope that their collection can shed light on new takes on how and where to use contemporary illumination. This season Lightyears proudly present three new lamps created by some of Europe’s most renowned and talented designers. They hope you’ll love them as much as they do.
Lightyears does not put just any lamp into production. The most important requirement is a fusion of form and function, and that the lamp provides optimum illumination. Every single detail must have its own purpose, and not exist purely for the sake of design.
The combination of progressive and timeless aesthetics is the golden thread that runs through all of our product series, tangibly expressed through functional design and refined lighting technology. Thus, their product assortment presents a new and pioneering order of modern design and quality illumination. In this sense, they know that their name brings obligation. But it also proves their commitment to being light years ahead!
All the production is handmade by experienced craftsman.
Salto & Sigsgaard
All superfluous details are cast away in the struggle to ensure a species’ continued existance. Designer Kasper Salto and architect Thomas Sigsgaard use the same demands of selection and sorting as the basis for their designs.Neither Kasper Salto nor Thomas Sigsgaard find professional or personal satisfaction in simply continuing a familiar style. They wipe the slate clean, and work intensely with the development process itself to create a unique and thoroughly conceived design.
In developing a lamp, Kasper Salto and Thomas Sigsgaard concentrate on the specific lighting situation. Accordingly, the final design is always a direct result of the demands the lighting solution is expected to meet.
