Futura by Hangar Design Group
The collaboration between international design agency Hangar Design Group and Italian lighting producer Vistosi - which started in 2014 with Peggy, a special lighting project for the Peggy Guggenheim Museum Cafè in Venice - goes on.
The latest creation is a pendant lamp in blown glass named Futura. Available in three colours combined with different finishes, Futura is special not only for its simple and rigorous design, but also for a particular handcraft process which allows a double effect of transparency and opacity in the glass, giving birth to a unique light that can illuminate harmoniously any interior.
The Futura lamp - recently awarded a ‘Best of Category 2016’ bagde at the Archiproducts Design Awards 2016 - is available in three versions: white crystal glass with anthracite brushed metal band, topaz amber glass with brown metal band, and gray fumé glass with bronze metal band. The rationalist geometries and visual rhythm of this lamp are clearly made to last.
Hangar Design Group is an award-winning multidisciplinary practice, operating internationally in four offices based in Milan, Venice, New York and Shanghai. With a staff of more than forty among architects, graphic and industrial designers, the studio has balanced a steadfast commitment to design quality and creative ability, approaching a wide range of projects, including new products and retail concepts. Among the highlights, the Sunset Mobile Home (winner of the 2011 ADI Compasso d’Oro award), the One-O-One travel mug for Acera (winner of the 2016 Best of The Best Red Dot Design Award) and product design for top brands Listone Giordano, Ferrarelle and Silko.
