This month Custom Lighting Celebrates LED lighting with Italian Designer Style NIA (pictured at top) is a veil of hand-modelled glass which lightens up with its own light.
Murano Due's technological research in association with the expertise of glass masters has managed to conceal the light in a thin wire hanging from a glass leaf.
For the first time a suspension of glass does not use projected lighting.
The suspension turns into a cascade that generates and reflects the light in endless modular configurations to create suggestive luminous settings.

The Italian making skills, still evoked by tradition, induced the designer to use old materials in association with state-of-the art lighting technologies, experimenting the design not only of single components, but also of mechanisms that recall Leonardo’s inventions in search of the magic dynamic balance expressed by this object.
AKI is pictured above right. The wooden structure of the lamp is CNC milled and has six small recesses for the LED strips which bathe the room into warm, comfortable and bright light .
