Clairière, a new pendant in oiled walnut or white Corian from Dix Heures Dix

Clairière by Fabrice Berrux in Corian for Dix Heures Dix The lights presented by Dix Heures Dix on parent Atelier Sedap's stand at Light+Building showed how they are moving away from the large fabric pieces with which we primarily associate them. Our favourite was Clairière by Fabrice Berrux. You can see above the larger version in white Corian©. It also comes in oiled walnut:

It is easy to miss specific designs from a company that one identifies with a particular look when they introduce a new direction, so do look through the rest of the collection. The new pieces are at the top.

Here is an example of the smaller version which escaped to join his ancestors in the wild:

Cirrata table light by Markus Johansson

Cirrata table light by Markus JohanssonAt first glance, Cirrata, from the Swedish designer, Markus Johansson, looks like another example of a light made using rapid-prototyping technology, a trend started by MGX by Materialise and then Freedom of Creation and now, as will be seen by clicking on the tag "Rapid Prototyping", now being enthusiastically pursued by others. It certainly echoes the sense of a design drawn from nature.

In Markus's own words, "Unexpected experiences and surprises wait deep down on the ocean floor: a body with many arms which sweeps along and lights up the depth. Arrogant and presumptuous, there is no doubt about who is the ruler down here. A lonely but nevertheless unafraid character with forms born out of the resemblance to other inhabitants of the deep depths."

And, kudos to him (as they say in American dialect) for not airbrushing out the electrical flex!
