This Just In: New Bocci series 28 chandelier, Foscarini's Allegretto lights, Gaia & Gino 2010 lines

January 18, 2010 |  8:00 am

To you, the jury, we present some of the latest designs to land in our e-mailbox:

JustIn_EVA_1941-EditAbove, from Foscarini: "Allegretto is shaped from intermingling aluminum rods, to produce an ethereal structure. Because the rods hang in balance, and are not secured to each other, they softly chime when lightly touched. Allegretto comes in three profile and metal color combinations: Vivace in brown, Ritmico in black and Assai in gold."

Right, from Bocci: "The newest design by Omer Arbel -- a new beautiful chandelier.... The series 28 chandelier is produced with a very unique blowing technique developed by Omer whereby air is intermittently blown in and sucked out of an intermittently heated and then cooled glass matrix. This specific technique produces very unusual shapes."

Below, from Gaia & Gino: Clockwise from top are the Valencia candleholder from Jaime Hayon, crystal Gino dog figurines in new colors by Harry Allen, the Matrix centerpiece and the Matrix tea-light holder by Constantin Boym.

Your verdicts are welcome. Post comments below.
