Loewe has unveiled its latest collection for Salone del Mobile 2024, showcasing a series of new lamps created by 24 artists with established ties to the brand. Displayed in the Palazzo Citterio from April 15 to 21, 2024, the presentation, titled “Loewe Lamps,” highlights the diverse interpretations of light by each artist, drawing from their individual practices.

This marks the eighth appearance of Loewe at the international furniture fair, providing a platform for creative collaboration between the brand and artists, expanding on a legacy of design and craftsmanship.

The project represents a new venture for many of the participating artists, offering them the opportunity to experiment with a variety of materials to create unique interactions with light. From bamboo and birch twigs to paper and leather, the artists have explored the properties of each medium to craft lamps inspired by natural and man-made objects.

Among the featured works, Genta Ishizuka’s suspended lamp evokes an organic cell, showcasing layers of glossy lacquer with glimpses of gold finishing. Magdalene Odundo, known for her ceramics, has incorporated leather into her design, forming sharp peaks around a central column.

Enrico David’s table lamp reflects his fascination with the human form, resembling a standing figure silhouetted against an illuminated onyx disc. Hafu Matsumoto’s lamp demonstrates his mastery of bamboo weaving, while Alvaro Barrington’s standing light draws inspiration from New York streetscapes.

The full list of artists includes Alvaro Barrington, Nicholas Byrne, Enrico David, Andile Dyalvane, Ernst Gamperl, Kazunori Hamana, Anthea Hamilton, Akiko Hirai, Joe Hogan, Ann Van Hoey, Genta Ishizuka, Dahye Jeong, Takuro Kuwata, Jennifer Lee, Young Soon Lee, Anne Low, Hafu Matsumoto, Magdalene Odundo, Zizipho Poswa, Magali Reus, Chikuunsai Tanabe IV, Andrea Walsh, Cerith Wyn Evans, and Shohei Yokoyama.

In addition to the lamps, Loewe offers a collection of homewares including ikebana vases and paperweights made from woven leather. Exclusive designs created in collaboration with artists featured in the presentation are also available.

The collection includes reimagined versions of Loewe’s iconic Puzzle and Hammock bags by bamboo artist Hafu Matsumoto, as well as intricately woven baskets by Chikuunsai Tanabe IV. Ceramicist Ann Van Hoey has crafted bowls from surplus nappa lambskin, while artist Kay Sekimachi has reimagined Loewe’s Puzzle Fold tote in jacquard textile.

All items are exclusively available at Palazzo Citterio and the Loewe Montenapoleone store, alongside limited-edition candles featuring the newly launched ‘Roasted Hazelnut’ scent in vessels inspired by the concept of wabi-sabi.
