LZF Lamps’ Custom Constellations …


Forming part of their Stereovision campaign (see the blog post here), LZF Lamps have released a series of images called Custom Constellations.

Following the incredible Candelabro, a sort of ‘greatest hits’ of LZF Lamps products artfully structured by Marivi Calvo, Custom Constellations groups similar LZF Lamps products together to form a cluster – adding to the impact that these pieces create in isolation.



Lighting pieces are fixed to a central point, eliminating the need for multiple fittings and are dimmable to avoid recreating Times Square in the home or office!  By definition alone, these are a custom piece and of course, we can assist you to create the perfect cluster for yourself!

Sauntering through the LZF Lamps’ Blog is much like flicking through their immense catalogue; it’s packed with great images of LZF product installed all over the world.

LZF Lamps’ blog is a great resource to see how their sculptural pieces can enhance a space by injecting them with their sculptural shape and unique style.  Each piece projects its story through its distinctive architectural form; each LZF piece is different to the other whilst still holding a common gene; the utilization of timber veneer.

A few of our favourite installation images are shown here.  Click each image to read about the design project, and don’t forget to peruse the entire LZF Lamps catalogue available at KE-ZU here.

And the nomineees are….LZF Lamps & Escape! …

It’s happening again! KE-ZU supplier and purveyor of incredible lamps of plywood LZF Lamps are nominated for another award stemming form their ever-successful High Fidelity collection.

The collection has already won two Red Dot Design Awards, and now one of its stars, the Escape suspension designed by Ray Power is nominated in the Pendant Light category at the Interior Design Best of the Year Awards 2013.

Escape uses a domino effect to provide a chain of self supporting squares which fall into a ring of light. The innovative design using LZF’s go-to material of naturally veneered ply sits in a constant gravity defying state and emits a remarkable patterning from its inner source.

Escape formed part of our window display for Sydney Indesign 2013 and were an immensely popular piece among design enthusiasts – and now duly recognized by the Interior Design Best of the Year Awards.   The award ceremony takes place on 5 December in none other than New York City, with winners announced the day before so keep some crossed fingers for LZF and Ray Power – congratulations from us here at KE-ZU!

Yummy: Tapas – Spanish Design for Food …

The first stop for Spain’s new international traveling exhibition is the design-conscious Miami, where Tapas – Spanish Design for Food makes its premiere this month in Miami’s Design District.

Fitting that Florida sees the debut as the exhibition honors the 500th anniversary of Juan Ponce de León’s arrival in Florida (Ponce de León led the first European expedition to Florida).  Fast forward and today, the Tapas exhibition is curated by designer and architect Juli Capella and works to promote Spanish culture and heritage.

The show encompasses more than 200 exhibits from Spanish creatives including Spanish chefs, designers, architects, vineyards and restaurants celebrating the rise of Spanish design over the past 25 years; these include many Spanish designers and manufacturers which form part of the of KE-ZU catalogue, supplying Spanish design to the Australian market and assisting awareness of the burgeoning design scene coming from the European nation.    Click each of the photos below to see the suppliers’ entire catalogue available at KE-ZU.






Design is synonymous with progress. As our different cultures engage in more permanent contact and we are all influenced by each other, the distinctive features of geographical design by countries or by regions are melting away in our inter-connected world.

Says curator Juli Capella.

This rings true in the defining difference of the exhibition – incorporating the Spanish dining experience with broader design – with the Spanish tapas tradition defining Spain’s social nature; a group of friends and family coming together to taste portions of widely varying flavors, it’s more than just a way to enjoy food, it’s also a great way to share an experience and the same can be said of its design.

The KE-ZU Wishlist – Week 3 …

Three weeks can be a long time, it can also be a short time.   It’s about perspective I guess.  But, it flies by when you’re ticking off pieces from The KE-ZU Wishlist.  Here is the collection from Week 3 of TKWL.

bd Barcelona – Olvidada

Outstanding as a stand-alone piece and beautifully grouped, the geometric explosion of the Olvidada Lamp holds its own in any setting.  Perfect for both residential and contract, the lamp comprises three incandescent strips, copper plated iron ceiling mount and a bulb-holder in chromed brass.  Olvidada is available as a floor lamp or suspension – both showing design brilliance with expert manufacture.

LZF Lamps – Candelabro

Marivi Calvo has been mighty busy compiling a lighting installation which blends mixture of forms from the LZF Lamps catalogue.  Carefully piecing together a cocktail of the greatest hits of LZF Lamps, their twisted manipulated forms sit together harmoniously, surrounded by intrigued hummingbirds allowing Candelabro it to be received in any space, creating not only an art form in itself but a joyous party of dancing pieces.

Chorus Furniture – Theo Bench

Lightweight, strong and durable; Theo is an elegant multipurpose wood framed high density collection of veneered plywood, available as a sled based stacking chair, stool, bench or table.   The chair is offered with or without arms and holds exciting range of through specification and finish: available in natural Oak or Beech stains or solid colours with an optional upholstered seat pad.

Fluvia – Slim Suspension

KE-ZU has recently welcomed Fluvia to the band of Spanish manufacturers we supply to the Australian market. Fluvia was established with the aim of creating different kinds of spaces by manipulating the way light works. The Slim Collection is a powerful family of fixtures which cast a powerful light and comprise an array of lighting devices which hold strong presence for being not only expertly manufactured, but also technologically cutting-edge.

INSTALLED! The Generator …

Taking the most negative of clichés and generalizations about hostels and dropkicking them out of their Barcelonan window is the Generator Hostel.   Here’s how they describe themselves:

When is a hostel in Barcelona not a hostel? When it’s a hotel. I’m the best of both worlds. You see I’m a hotel and hostel. How is that possible I hear you say? Easy, it’s all about hospitality and that’s the game I’m in. I’m Generator Hostel in Barcelona, and I’m much, much, much more than a hostel, I’m a hotel too.

Um, good.

Utilising all facets of design to assist them in their plight, it’s their interior design and furniture design which stands out for us.   Bold colours, large graphic prints and wallpaper was used in the recent renovations to pump up the jam.

And pump up the jam they did.  The new design is the epitome of fun, with a large portion of furniture available at KE-ZU filling the space. Spanish manufacturers Sancal, Andreu World and LZF Lamps all feature in the design with Sancal’s Tab tables/stools, Chat stools and Tea lounge chairs, Andreu World’s Cloe chair, and LZF  Lamps’ Farolillo suspension lights all dropped into the common areas, maximizing the fun design; and the fun appears to be infectious!  Check out what we’re now calling “the Tea Party” – a promo video made by Generator Hostel showing just how much fun you can have with furniture, this is Sancal being utilized like we’ve never seen before!

If you happen upon Barcelona on you’re on a budget, or you’re keen to join the Tea Party, we suggest checking in – but perhaps only if you have a helmet, a wig, a cape or some other form of fancy dress, it appears to be mandatory…
