Place: Sapporo Giappone
Lamps: THE GLOBE 827, Lyndon
Project HITOSHI MAKINO Design Co.,Ltd
Lyndon and The Globe shed light on two new restaurants in Japan
Lyndon is used in its wall version for the new café Orange—located in the famous Roppongi district in Tokyo designed by Glamourous, the company owned by Japanese designer Yasumichi Morita. Lyndon is a project by Vico Magistretti conceived in 1977 and developed through the years into a vast collection that includes a huge number of variants and sizes: for inside and out, hanging, free-standing or wall mounted. The love of this architect and designer for simple, geometric shapes makes a forceful return in this project, which sees a totally modern object conjure up past times and moods from European capitals in the late nineteenth century.
The Globe—interpretation of the clear glass ball by Joe Colombo—hangs over and lights up the counter in the new Bar Nyantory, recently inaugurated in Sapporo on the wonderful island of Hokkaidō. The Globe lamp was designed in 1964 and is produced in a table, hanging and wall version, available in two sizes. Its pure geometries are the constant equilibrium of shape and function: the clear blown glass sphere contains a metal reflecting cylinder that timelessly projects the light into space.
