Style and functionality: exploring Oluce’s new suspension lamps

In the last article dedicated to Oluce, we spoke to you about the new gorgeous and functional table lamps introduced at Euroluce. However, today we’d like to focus on the latest suspension lamps the company has designed in collaboration with some of the sector’s most creative designers.

Delicate and elegant, Oluce’s new suspension lamps are once again a combination of advanced technology and refined aesthetics. Designed to fit into any domestic environment (whether contemporary or classic), these suspension lamps are capable of turning any room into a bright and sophisticated space, enriching the atmosphere with timeless style and functionality.

Three new suspension lamps and a nomination

Berlin, Dancing Queen and Iride are the works Oluce has created to light up our homes’ spaces—from the living room to the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. With fine details and a cutting-edge design, these lamps are perfectly fit for a variety of domestic spaces and create unique and custom spaces. Berlin conveys elegance; Dancing offers flexibility; while Iride provides a touch of refinement.

Ilo, nominated for a Compasso d’Oro ADI

At the end of the article, we will introduce you to Ilo, a suspension lamp designed by David Lopez Quincoces in 2019. Thank to its undeniable beauty, Ilo has been added to the list of candidates for the prestigious Compasso d’Oro ADI design award, which Oluce already won during the 60s and 70s with some of its most famous icons, like Vico Magistretti’s Atollo and Joe Colombo’s Spider.


Berlin suspension lamp

Berlin is a collection which has been expanded every year with new models and finishes. The suspension-lamp version is the latest produced by Oluce. Designed by Christophe Pillet, Berlin is a lamp with a retro look which recalls the round headlights of classic cars. The suspension-lamp version is made up of four metallic diffusers which encase elegant discs in wire mesh glass.

Supported by a thin stem, the discs can be rotated 360° so you can illuminate anything you want. There are also art deco echoes in the discs’ two finishes: anodized brass or matte black.

Dancing Queen suspension lamp

Dancing Queen, created by Victor Vasilev, is a suspension lamp which blends decorative design and technical functionality. With its flexible structure, it allows you to create different lighting setups. In the center, a horizontal body encases the LED light source and supports ten thin metallic cylinders, which have been designed as adjustable spotlights.

In this lamp, the spotlights, which are usually conceived as technical components, become decorative elements thanks to their irregular design in size and positioning along the central support. Dancing Queen resembles a hanging and “dancing” sculpture and creates fascinating interplay of light. Available in two color variants, matte black and glossy grey, this lamp is part sculpture and part functional lighting unit.

Iride suspension lamp

The Sienese designers Bellucci Mazzoni Progetti have created a series of suspension lamps for Oluce with minimalist lines which are entirely made in metal. Iride, with its suffused light and low profile, reinterprets the traditional concept of the dome lamp in a contemporary key. This lamp comes in two different suspension sizes to obtain a refined lighting effect, guaranteeing even distribution and visual comfort.

The central opaline glass diffuser offers personality, tracing the shape of stylized drop at the center of the minimalist dome. The light is delicately diffused by Iride thanks to the reflection of the lampshade. Ideal for domestic spaces, Iride is available in total white or with white inside and black or glossy red on the outside.

Ilo suspension lamp

The Ilo family of lamps designed by David Lopez Quincoces is available in three different variants: a suspension lamp, a suspension lamp with vertical movement, and a wall lamp. All of the models share an elegant and elongated aluminum structure which has been carefully crafted to host the light source. In the suspension versions, the bar is divided into two parts by coloring: the first gives the effect of a handle and while the second houses the long LED bulb.

This model’s large dimensions create a harmonious contrast with the slender profile, providing a signature and contemporary design. Ilo was selected (and placed in the ADI Design Index 2021 catalog) to participate in the ADI Compasso d’Oro, the competition which awards the best projects in the design world.
