Unveiled at Euroluce in Milan, the latest from FontanaArte marks its investment in nine emerging international design firms, plus what it describes as a person-centric approach to contemporary lighting for the home. Unconventional materials, another theme, invite a tactile experience for the user. Blom, a table lamp by Andreas Engesvik, is one such piece. The lacquered aluminum base has polycarbonate petals that slide manually from side to side to adjust light emission through the milk-white polyethylene diffuser. At 9 inches high, Blom comes in yellow, pale green, ruby red, and silk gray.
