LZF has been working hard on a collection of original luminaires for 2022, with a mix of brand new lamps and several reimagined models. The LZF 2022 collection was photographed by creative tour de force Nienke Klunder and Wiglius de Bie of KlunderBie, at the wholly unconventional and sublime home of Catalan artist Xavier Corberó. The concrete buildings, courtyards, archways, and colonnades of Corberó’s dreamlike home are the perfect frame for LZF’s new lamps. Additional photography was captured by the ever insightful Lekuona, whose work is expressed with a telling passion and shown below.
A peek at the LZF 2022 collection
Omma and Kasa
Spanish designer Eli Gutiérrez, the latest design virtuoso to collaborate with LZF, created the Omma family of lamps: an imaginative collection of suspension, table, floor, and wall lamps. Omma’s design is truly inventive and can be described as comprising ‘leaves of light’. The ‘leaves’ rotate up to 180 degrees, allowing the user to generate a range of lighting moods.
Gutiérrez also designed Kasa, a bijou table lamp. In Kasa, she imagined a lamp with two sides—one side has a somewhat playful demeanour, and the other is much more reflective.
Long-time LZF collaborator Ray Power has designed Sushi, a new pendant that captures the essence of the traditional Japanese dish. Sushi reflects the Japanese flair for clean, unfussy design made using wood. The Sushi pendant is especially notable for its ability to combine two natural wood veneer colours side by side in delicious harmony.
Vertical Dune and Estela
Madrid-based Mayice rotated the horizontal Dune and Estela lamps by 90 degrees to create striking vertical versions. In its vertical form, Dune has an arresting presence—the lamp’s unique, award-winning shape is gloriously vivid and warm. At the same time, the vertical Estela showcases the lamps artistic merit. Available in three sizes—small, medium, and large—the upright Estela offers an array of playful arrangements. Both Dune vertical and Estela vertical are hand-blown by master artisan Eduard Garuti.
Illustrator and writer Isidro Ferrer’s life-size Big Bird has been scaled down to create Birdy, a smaller, and no less prepossessing, sibling. Birdy is available in both horizontal and vertical configurations. This delightful fledgling is made in collaboration with master craftsman Manolo Martin, using the traditional vareta woodcarving technique honed over many years by Fallas artisans.
