A while ago we already discussed office lighting. This article didn’t only feature useful tips, it also contained some great examples of office lighting. Another interesting example is the Flos Architectural Running Magnet – an ingenious lighting system, which also looks fantastic.
Never heard of a brand called Astro? Time to brush up your knowledge then. Astro is a new British lighting brand in our web store. They offer a more than extensive range of high quality lighting, from rural to modern. What’s more, it all comes at very affordable prices!
I really love it when I can start a blogpost like that! Though it’s not the kind of nudity most people have in mind when they see it combined with ‘functional’. Normally this term is used by actresses, who try to explain why they showed a little more skin in their latest movie than they normally do. Though I’ve got nothing against this kind of nudity, I really want to talk about ‘naked’ bulbs. Nothing more than a power cord and a simple fixture that shows the light source in all its splendour.
Who do you turn to when you’re looking for some good interior tips? To a renowned interior architect like Filip Deslee of course! That’s why we were very excited when Filip welcomed us to his beautiful loft for an interesting talk on interior design and lighting.

Just like many other Belgian people (mostly men), I like to take my race bike out for a nice long ride during the weekends. Some of my friends ,who’re less bike-minded, often ask me: “What’s in it for you?”. No matter how many arguments I come up with, they still think it’s a useless pastime. Thanks to Mark Colliass, student at the Nottingham Trent University, this will finally come to an end. For all people who think cycling is useless, this nice young man invented a device which turns your bike into a lamp shade factory.
If you do your best at college, sometimes you can get something extra, to reward you for your achievements, like graduating with distinction. It’s quite the same in the world of lighting. The only difference is that you don’t get a degree or a diploma, but an award. Over the years many lamps received awards. We’ve made a short selection.
One of the newest Fontana Arte products is the Igloo suspension. Creator of this versatile lighting piece is Studio Klass whom we were happy to do a small interview with.

According to Studio Klass everyone nowadays wants that precise product but at the same time everyone wants to differentiate themself from their friends. And don’t be afraid of the dark. Read the full interview to discover all of Studio Klass’s thoughts.
