Super Slender Illuminators

The Lanx Table Lamp Sheds the Expected Bulk of Light Fixtures

— October 24, 2013 — Art & Design
Think of the archetypal table light and you'll probably picture a wide-set stand and a big flaring lampshade; this is not what you get with the Lanx Table Lamp. Not only is this illuminator much thinner than that sort of model, it's much finer than any fixture you will have seen at its size.

Alessandro Marelli's elegant product essentially fulfills its purpose without adding much clutter to your working or living space. It has a rather small footprint and nearly a non-existent silhouette when viewed from the side. It's been manufactured from a carefully cut piece of 3 millimeter thick aluminum that's been bent in three places to produce an arching arm. A very thin wood grain veneer brings depth to the impossibly flattened fixture.
Trend Themes
1. Slim Profile Lighting - The trend towards slim profile lighting offers a sleek and minimalist alternative to traditional bulky fixtures, creating a more streamlined and elegant aesthetic.
2. Space-saving Design - The demand for space-saving lighting solutions is driving the trend for compact and slim fixtures that take up minimal room while still providing ample illumination.
3. Invisible Lighting - The emergence of invisible lighting designs, such as the Lanx Table Lamp, disrupts the traditional expectations of light fixtures by offering a nearly non-existent silhouette and blending seamlessly into the surrounding space.
Industry Implications
1. Interior Design - The interior design industry can leverage the trend towards slim profile lighting to create visually appealing and functional spaces by incorporating sleek and minimalist lighting fixtures.
2. Furniture Manufacturing - Furniture manufacturers can embrace the space-saving design trend to create multi-functional pieces that integrate lighting elements, offering customers innovative and space-efficient solutions.
3. Lighting Fixtures - The lighting fixtures industry has an opportunity to tap into the demand for invisible lighting by developing and producing fixtures that blend seamlessly into the surrounding environment, providing a discreet and stylish lighting solution.
