Matali Crasset is no stranger to designing beautiful lighting. Some of Crasset’s lighting is among the most luxurious, and what I like most about this new Stick collection that Crasset has designed for Fabbian Illuminazione, is that it has a bit of a crafty feel to it without losing the luxury or quality.

Exploring space, shape and shadow, this lighting collection has it all: a table lamp, a wall lamp, four floor lamps and five suspension lamps featuring four different diffuser shapes. The design stems from an Ayous wood module, the shape of which is inspired by a pair of pliers: two bent elements stretched by a central support.

Crasset explains:

This detail is the vocabulary that gives life to a lamp collection based on its repetition. While the texture of the wood permits diffusing a soft and warm light, the repetition of the module creates an effect of unexpected graphics and shadows.

The Ayous wood strips used to create the lamps has a plaible kind of feeling, as if you could stretch them out and back in like an accordion. Also, I’m especially a big fan of any kind of lighting that casts creative shadows.
