Luceplan Hope combines classic style with innovative materials
Hope by Luceplan
interprets the classic chandelier in a new way and so realizes a representative expression by means of most modern materials and state-of-the-art processing. 2011, the lighting series Luceplan Hope
won the Italian design prize Compasso d’Oro “for the innovative application of polycarbonate Fresnel lenses“(quotation: jury)
Inspired by its namesake, the Hope Diamond, Luceplan's Hope stands for a glittery, party-like atmosphere, sprinkled with countless of shards of light. A futuristic looking lamp with classical proportions and elegance, Luceplan Hope is positively radiant with brilliant lighting schematics. One of the leading designs to come from Italian light manufacturer Luceplan, Hope is a stunning combination of steel and glass. The shade of the Luceplan Hope is a multifaceted array of Fresnel lenses, like those used in lighthouses. Made of polycarbonate, these nearly indestructible lenses spread and magnify the light, making the Luceplan Hope
appear as a sparkling diamond that is sure to be the centre of attention.
There are many different fixtures in the Luceplan Hope series that suit every room. The Hope Soffitto is a ceiling light
that radiates jewel-like brilliance throughout the entire room, such as living, dining or bedrooms. The Luceplan Hope Terra
is a floor lamp resting atop three sturdy steel legs that are extremely delicate in appearance, giving the impression that the lamp floats in mid air. It works well both as general and accent lighting, when it creates a glamorous atmosphere that is inviting and anything but stuffy. Despite its imposing measurements (height: 198 cm), this floor light appears astonishingly delicate. An integrated dimmer allows for individual regulation of the light intensity. Renowned prices like red dot award and Good Design Award speak for themselves.
The Hope Parete
(available as “grande” or “piccolo”) is a wall light perfect for halls, bedrooms and living areas, washing the walls in radiant, warm light and directing the focus at sideboards cabinets. Hope Sospensione is a pendant light that resembles a glittering gem. This Hope hanging lamp looks stunning when placed over the dining table to add height and visual interest to the entire setting. A light object like the Luceplan Hope pendant light
celebrates light and exudes an almost majestic aura even it is switched off. This hanging lamp
is available in the diameters 61, 72 and 110 cm.
Like its name already suggests, the Luceplan Hope Terra Stilo
appears like a diamond that is impaled by a stem. In contrast to the tree-legged Hope Terra the Stilo floor lamp stands on just one leg. The base reduced to the max, this Luceplan floor light concentrates on its talent of providing wonderful light reflections and refractions. Thanks to its built-in dimmer it works well both as general and cosy mood lighting.
