The Futura lighting by Hangar Design and Vistosi have an interesting aesthetic. Off the first glance, I’m reminded of Harman Kardon’s Aura speakers that created waves in the market (and still do) for having a transparent enclosure and a far-from-conventional design. The Futura lamps create the same wave, with their form and use of transparent and translucent materials.
The interesting piece of innovation is at the bottom of the lamp. While one would think that it’s plastic, or even marble, the lower shade is actually glass that’s been made translucent using a particular handicraft process. Hangar Design won’t tell us what it was! Either which way, we get an interesting lamp design that manages to be contemporary yet futuristic at the same time!
