Introducing the Illan Lamp by Hungarian designer Zhuzhanna Horvat, exclusively crafted for the renowned Italian brand Luceplan. This exquisite piece seamlessly combines precision and elegance, with its primary material being birch plywood intricately cut using laser technology.
The name “Illan,” derived from Hungarian, translates to something temporary or fleeting. Zhuzhanna Horvat encapsulates this concept through a design that is both simple and elegant. Employing advanced laser cutting techniques, she creates equidistant lines on a delicate plywood sheet. When suspended, the lamp transforms the wood into a gracefully curved shape, forming a distinctive lampshade.
“The idea of the lamp emerged from experiments with laser-cutting models of various materials,” explains the designer. “Geometric cuts in paper and wood sheets take on new characteristics, responding dynamically to gravity. A basic concentric carving transforms the wood into a three-dimensional sculptural piece that reacts to the subtlest air movements. Coupled with the warm radiance of light, it produces a calming ambiance reflected on the wooden surface. The Illan Lamp resides at the intersection of art and design, blending functionality, aesthetic appeal, and a touch of everyday magic.”
Available in three versions, the Illan pendant can span up to a meter in width. Versatile enough to be hung solo or arranged in captivating clusters of varying sizes, this lamp adds a touch of sophistication to any space. Zhuzhanna Horvat, a Hungarian designer and architect based in Copenhagen, showcases her innovation through her personal studio. The collaboration with Luceplan was sparked during the previous year’s Salone del Mobile. Milano, where the designer unveiled a prototype lamp as part of the Salone Satellite. Illuminate your space with the Illan Lamp, where artistry meets functionality in a harmonious blend.
