Oluce has been awarded a special mention at the prestigious German Design Award 2019 with the Berlin lamp by Christophe Pillet, after winning the award last year with the Superluna light by Viktor Vasilev. The prize was established in 2012 by the German Design Council with the intention of promoting and introducing the most innovative designs and those that make a pioneering contribution to the international design panorama.
The jury, consisting of over 40 experts from various disciplines – industrial design, science, and academic and financial fields – chose the Berlin for the lighting category, as an example of innovation and style.
Berlin, designed by Christophe Pillet, is an object that calls into question the common understanding of the ceiling light, turning its traditional discreet character upside down to transform it into an elegant, decorative feature.
Available in the ø40 ceiling version or in the ø30 version for use as a ceiling light or wall light, the light takes the form of a thick metal ring with a slender profile, enclosing a disc of wire mesh glass inside it. The satin brass finish evokes echoes of Art Deco, given a contemporary update in the defined shapes and the use of a LED light source.
