Product • By AngoMy Chrysalis

My Chrysalis

The table light design forms an early part of Ango’s story of fusing nature and technology, with the diffuser design an early example of the use of natural silk cocoons assembled on a matrix of hand soldered wires. A magical light quality comes from each cocoon having an aura of ultra-fine transparent silk fibre around it which subtly refracts and diffuses the output from the light source.   TYPE: Mains voltage ceiling light MATERIALS: Silk cocoon + hand brushed stainless steel base DIMENSIONS: Ht - 380 mm (15 in) x 520 mm (20.5 in) x 520 mm (20.5 in) More

Infinite Flow no 4

Infinite Flow no 4 by Ango is a rattan handcrafted sculptural floor lamp. The elemental designs within the Infinite Flow series can be seen as archetypes, that are emblematic of perpetuity, where a continuum of flowing translucent light rises up from the floor. In Infinite Flow no 4, the liquid lines of the floor light describe a kind of finite infinity and are created in rattan with a copper-plated base for use in your interior scheme. With its sculptural look, the piece proposes an optimistic vision of onward movement and openness. Production of all pieces by Ango is centred on a hybrid of modern technology coupled with Thai hand-crafted techniques, and this unique approach to design was highlighted in Future Paradise Exhibition within...

Ango Home Studio

The venue acts as Ango’s head office where brainstorming, experimental processes, and testing take place, while also doubling as a residential space for living. @kitchen magazine The building very much cross-refers to the Ango values of creating lighting designs with purity and truthfulness and embraces the use of natural light, open space, and natural cross-ventilation.

Birdy

A member of LZF’s Life-Size family, Big Bird joins the happy adventures of Elephant, Fish and Koi. Hovering vertically with fluttering wings, Big Bird has the agile appearance of a gentle hummingbird.  Created by the illustrator and designer Isidro Ferrer and built using a traditional craft technique called vareta, Big Bird is a masterly feat of wood craftsmanship. While light radiates from Big Bird’s wooden plumage, a wood veneer globe hangs from its beak, like a ball of glowing nectar. With Big Bird, LZF is once again dreaming big, re-engineering the concept of what a lamp can be, in both shape and scale.

Estela

Estela is a captivating capsule of light. In Estela, Mayice Studio designed a clean, clear, single piece of borosilicate glass. Hand-blown by the accomplished artisan Eduardo Garuti, the glass envelopes a cylinder-like wood veneer diffuser. The wood veneer houses a dimmable LED light source, and a straight opening on one side emits downward light that is softened by the glass. Offering a seamless connection between both glass and wood, Estela is a radiant lamp with a celestial-like quality. Similar to Dune, Estela’s natural imperfections, a characteristic of hand-blown glass, add to its warmth and elegance. Each lamp is signed by the artisan, Eduardo Garuti.   Estela’s new vertical formation is available in small, me... More

Eris

Eris has an abstract and ethereal beauty, similar to the planet of the same name. Designed by Mayice Studio, Eris is made up of several components: an original borosilicate glass orb, hand-blown by master glass-blower Eduardo Garuti, a wood veneer tube (that contains the LED light source), and a metallic base. Available as both a table lamp and a suspension lamp, Eris is sublime. Radiant when the light is on and ornamental when off, Eris has an ethereality that captures the perfect symbiosis of glass and wood. More

DUNE

Dune is a sculptural light whose shape is intriguingly amorphous. Designed by Madrid-based Mayice Studio, Dune is a single piece of hand-blown borosilicate glass, enveloping a wood veneer diffuser with a seedpod-like opening on one side. The glass is hand-blown by Eduardo Garuti, an accomplished artisan. With mastery and great dexterity, Garuti is able to reveal the natural beauty found in glass. Dune’s distinctive shape is made up of two symmetrical ends, and an irregular, bulb-shaped centre. The wood veneer diffuser houses the lamp’s dimmable LED light source, and downward light from the seedpod-like opening is softened by the glass. Each Dune lamp is unique: the beauty found in the imperfection of hand-blown glass, with... More

Gaia

In Greek mythology, Gaia is the personification of the Earth and the mother of all life. Looking to capture the mythical and natural beauty of this Earth goddess, designer Jean-François Crochet has created the Gaia pendant light. Consisting of geometric frames of brass or raw metal reminiscent of the mountains Gaia created, the pendant uses led light to push light through the “cracks” formed. The resulting light creates a magical feeling, as if the lights peaking through were alive themselves. Available to custom configurations, Gaia adds a vibrancy and sacred light to any space. More
