A study on forms based on essentiality and geometry to create versatile timeless design products where purity takes over. This is undoubtedly one of the strongest features of Swedish studio Vit’s style, whose design items’ core are essential forms and the harmony between the elements, as well as materiality in terms of weight, color and texture. The sphere shape is the starting point of Globe collection, one of the main creations by the design studio founded in 2010 by two women, Helena Jonasson and Veronica Dagnert. Just like the name suggests, Globe includes a range of spherical lamps recalling the shape of the terrestrial globe.
But this is just the beginning: the tiny hanging spheres represent the actual light source of the project, yet the main feature of the collection is an unexpected element, a big steel reflector that recalls a wide plate. The play of proportions between the smallness of the spherical lights and the size of the reflector – which is meant to be attached to the wall but can also lie on a surface because of its concave line – makes Globe a collection that goes beyond the basic idea of lighting, creating sophisticated design lamps which develop around the actual interaction amid their components. Thanks to the beauty and purity of their elements, Globe lights furnish a space more than any other lamp, bringing a minimalistic yet refined touch to any interior, keyword: all-white.
