HAY | LATEST Lighting
The new lighting collection from HAY accentuates 2 elements - Functionality and Aesthetics, especially when most of the designers are from architectural and artistic background.
French designer - Pierre Charpin with artistic background has been working on simple vocabulary, elementary forms and characterizing colours. In the desire of offering sensual objects, portable and anti-high-tech PC Portable Lamp series is created. As a refined portable lamp for any indoor or outdoor use, battery-powered PC Portable Lamp is designed to be water-proof, scratch-free and hiding light source from view as its iconic feature.
美術背景的德國設計師Pierre Charpin熱衷於簡單的詞彙、基本的型態形狀及研究各種顏色的特色。而PC Portable Lamp系列貫徹他的理念 - 希望每一件作品都具有聲色的設計風格，由電池供電的PC Portable，不單只防水防刮，更特意隱藏發光的燈源；獨特卻簡單的外型於任何室內外的環境，作為裝飾、還是光源都能勝任。

Consistent joints and mechanisms with touch-sensitive dimmer switch for precise and concise control and position has been showing the pared-back aesthetics and multi-purpose of the series.
來自英國巴斯的Sam Weller命名他的燈飾系列為Fifty Fifty，主要歸根於物理及工程學的背景，設計根據配重懸吊系統使重量互相牽制，達至平衡，而不失美觀。另外，fifty-fifty的物料及功能都經過他細心計算及篩選；從連貫的結構及接駁位、連可調較光暗的觸摸感應開關可見，簡單直接的使用方式都是為了展現設計整體的美感及多用途功能。
German designers - Florian Kallus and Sebastian Schneider, co-founded Kaschkasch as to create modular designs in stripping fine balance between functionality and aesthetics.

來自德國的Florian Kallus 及 Sebastian Schneider 是設計系的同學，為了設計同時具多功能性及符合美學、且有創意的作品，一同創造Kaschkasch Design Studio。Marselis Table Lamp的靈感正正來自於街邊歷久風霜而變得彎曲的指示路牌。Marselis的原材料為聚碳酸酯，以鋁及鋼造的支架支撐，傾斜的圓盤呈乳白色，透出的扁平光線，營造淡淡柔和的氛圍，如同晚上虛無一人的街道上照亮夜幕的街燈。
