The attraction of a simple drawing

Invitations to attend press gatherings, exhibitions and design events during the Milano Deign Week 2016 are piling up in my mailbox and I dare say it’s a bit overwhelming; so many stories, so many pictures, so much effort made to catch my eye and my attention.
And then these simple sketches arrive. From TAF. And that’s all I need to get curious.

”While designing the lamp we were inspired by the idea of displaying the different lamp components on a serving plate – almost as a still life. A reduced design beyond reduction”, says Gabriella Gustafson & Mattias Ståhlbom from TAF.

Remember Ambit, the pendant lamp released earlier this year? Now it is followed by a mini version, as sweet as ever.
