Salone del Mobile is a showcase for the hottest designers and innovators in the market, but it’s also a place where new and emerging designers can highlight their talent and get a leg up in a highly competitive industry. One such example of this is the Salone Satellite Awards, which serve as a competition and showcase for young designers.
This year, Australian designer Viktor Legin won third-place – from 700 – entries for his light fixture called Balance.
Viktor Legin Wins Third Place For Balance Pendant Light
Legin works at the Australian design firm, Copper Industrial Design, founded by himself and award-winning designer Edward Linacre. For this year’s Salone Satellite, Legin submitted Balance, which uses a minimum of materials to create a sleek, sculpture-esque pendant light.
Balance was created from a thin steam bent timber LED light, the angle of which can be adjusted via a counterweight. The timber pieces each have their own, signature curve, which means each of the pendants is unlike any other. Balance can be used alone, as an individual task light, or artfully arranged in a cluster to form a unique and decorative chandelier.
Casa Design congratulates Viktor Legin and looks forward to future designs from Copper.
