* Design: Salone del Mobile Milan 2012: Lighting: Trace Solar Lamp by Gionata Gatto + Mike Thompson

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 19 April 2012

Design: Salone del Mobile Milan 2012: Lighting: Trace Solar Lamp by Gionata Gatto + Mike Thompson: “..self-sufficient lighting units powered by solar energy. the series continues the concept explored in their 2011 ‘trap light’ but uses a more efficient shape and the material of polyurethane rubber to power ray-shaped lamps with ambient light..a charge of about 30 minutes provides several hours of light. the ‘trace S’ small lamps utilize a combination of electrical and solar power, while the large ‘trace M’ model completely replaces the lightbulb with the ambient glow of captured sunlight, since it has a larger surface area from which to charge. the designers note that in contrast to their previous use of glass, ‘trace’ permits a higher concentration and greater control over the photoluminescent pigments used..at spazio rossana orlandi”  Sustainable, green and polyurethane (?!), hmmmm..

The Klara rocker, by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso, looks old-fashioned and modern at the same time.

Pilar Viladas has written a short, to-the-point article entitled “Milan Report | The Wrap-Up, Part I” for the T-Magazine section of The New York Times, offering her take on some of the highlights of the bewilderingly vast Salone del Mobile 2011 (Milan Design Week) which took place last week in Milan.  What catches her attention?  Well, to begin with, rockers and rugs.  And Urquiolan ubiquity.  An abundance of very nice photos, as seen above and below, by Mattia Zoppellaro.

The always-interesting blog Designboom has published a great post entitled, appropriately enough, “Piet Hein Eek Milan 2010″ on the collection of new and past work by the Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek shown at Spazio Rossana Orlandi in Milan, in conjunction with the Salon del Mobile Milan 2010.  The show features some very good work in lighting, porcelaine, wood, and other materials which look at the concepts of recycling, unification, ethical production and sustainability.  Great ideas, good work, very good photos.
