INSTALLED: Red Red Rock – Red Red Hot …

UXC Red Rock Consulting recently moved their Sydney outfit to new premises in Clarence Street in the City, taking up residence in a very funky office.

The company is a mover and shaker in the consulting and managed services sector of Australia and New Zealand and obviously requires an office to match!  With high ceilings, wooden floors and obvious colour references to the red of their name, KE-ZU worked with Red Rock to provide furniture which was going to become part of the RR family.

The office is buzzing with fun.  The space is largely open plan, provides a pool table and many smaller glass-walled conference rooms which are somewhat planted in the centre of the office with names such as “The WTF Room”, “The Vault” and other creative tags all seemingly testament to the uber-cool employees which grace the halls.

Installing Little People, a Hive [design by hive] suspension light in copper overhead of the reception area (and the Mon-Fri day-home of my new friend Karlie) starts the Red Rock experience with a bang and you know you’re in for a treat!

Red Artifort Nina Chairs were installed into the boardroom which flank Konstantin Grcic and BD Barcelona’s successful aluminum extrusion piece Table B, which makes for exciting meetings looking over the Sydney CBD.

Soaring overhead in their colourful playful way over the breakout area is LZF’s X-Club suspension lamps – encouraging a bit of fun in the social nook.

If it weren’t for the amount of amazing pieces I work around every day here in the KE-ZU Showroom, with an office like this I’d be putting in a CV at Red Rock toot sweet!

Raindrop(‘s aren’t falling on our heads) …

It’s no secret where the inspiration for LZF Lamps’ latest lighting feature ‘Raindrop’ has come from.  Javier Herrero Studio designed Raindrop to fall from the ceiling into a delicately handcrafted drop shape, plied from fine wood veneer, through which light emanating from a centralised glass sphere flows into its space.

Raindrop falls into the larger LZF Lamps catalogue of finely tuned wood products, embodying their mantras “wood touched by light” and “light and nature”.

The entire LZF Lamps catalogue is available at KE-ZU, with models LINKNUTAIR and ANFORA available for viewing now at the KE-ZU showroom.

Air and Power…

Air and Power.  We know them well, not like this however.  Welcome to LZF’s lighting adventure, Air.

Designed by Ray Power for LZF (pictured above), Air is made of a single Polywood sheet, bent to its exciting and engaging shape and held in its graceful profile.  Falling into the LZF family of experimentation with form, Air is packed with fluidity and light as a feather.

Perfectly slotting into residential or commercial spaces as a table lamp or a wall-mounted lamp, Air is a quiet little achiever made of 100% sustainable FSC certified materials.  You’ll find Air available in eight different wood veneer finishes, all of which radiating a welcoming glow.

LZF, being the progressive design gurus that they are haven’t forgotten the graphic styling to accompany the Air family – check out these cool illustrations.

Not to be forgotten are the handy LZF desktop calendars.  Each month LZF release a calendar and September is another stellar offering!  The calendars are available from LZF’s Facebook site here.

LZF Lights Up Las Vegas…

Vegas: The Golden Mile.

In a city famed for its love of light, it’s no mean feat that Spanish lighting gurus LZF lamps have taken the city’s huge Hospitality and Design trade-show by storm, winning both the Best Stand Award and Excellence in Lighting Award for the second year running!

Showcasing for the first time, their new collections SPIRO and RAINDROP, Sandro and Marivi of LZF have once again demonstrated that the successful production of award winning lighting is to marry an in-depth, artisanal appreciation for your core material with a boundless, artistic motivation.

Working with Remedios Simon to design Spiro and Javier Herrero Studio to produce Raindrop, the outcome is a collection of new timber luminaires that are at once sculptural, engaging and entirely practical.

Spiro was given a sneak peek unveiling in Sydney last year when LZF held an exclusive workshop at the KE-ZU showroom, the concept is now in production and available in an array of amazing colours.

Raindrop is a family of suspension pendants ranging small to extremely large – this light has huge potential in atriums, voids and works wonderfully in clustered installations.

Adding to the excitement of these new releases as well as the recognition in Las Vegas is the news that LZF is also now fully FSC certified – 100% sustainable timbers are used in all their lights.  Great news that only reinforces the ‘looks good / feels good’ LZF ethos.

QUBIQUE: Sky High Design…

On October 26th, Berlin’s decommissioned and wonderfully atmospheric Tempelhof Airport, will for the first time, become Europe’s new Mecca for furniture professionals and design enthusiasts.  Qubique is promising to be a Next Generation Tradeshow.

Concerts, exhibitions and presentations act as an interface between the areas of design, art, architecture, and music, increasing the value for both exhibitors and the visitors in the process.

Taking the fair out of the endless exhibition halls and soulless convention centres, Qubique frames the latest in design with a venue that imbues the tradeshow circus with a whole new sense of character.  Inspiring as it is breathtaking the expansive hangars, baggage halls and airfields become a pop-up city teaming with creativity, repurposing the historically rich location.

Qubique boasts an exhibitors list that rivals some of the biggest shows on the calendar, with everyone from Lzf Lamps, nanimarquina, Established & Sons, Sellex, Artifort, Sancal, Thonet to Arper, Vitra and Bolon -  this is one big event that is sure to take off.

Making Light Work…

It was with sheer delight and great anticipation that we welcomed Marivi and Sandro from LZF back to KE-ZU last week.

As part of their whistlestop tour through Australia and New Zealand the pair had promised to unveil for us their newest creations and we are pleased to inform you that big, beautiful things are coming out of the LZF camp in coming months – you won’t be disappointed! Whilst we can’t share all the details just yet we can let in you in on their inspired “Spiro” Concept (as depicted above).

Their study in timber veneer as a decorative element has for years now proved fruitful with some of the most beautiful, warm lighting in the marketplace.  In ‘Spiro’ – Lzf have raised the bar again.  The concept is one that empowers interior designers and specifiers with the creative stronghand – employ the swirls of decorative timber as a screening system, a floor detail, a pendant light – the choice is yours.

The range of timber loops can be recessed in walls, encased in perspex or even housed in glass and back lit – their application is entirely flexible, the possibilities are infinite and the result is guaranteed to be captivating.  For more info on the new Spiro system dont hesitate to drop KE-ZU a line to discuss the potential for your fit-out.

Waking Up In Vegas…

For a loser, Vegas is the meanest town on earth.

So it’s a good thing LZF scooped the pool at Vegas’ Annual Hospitality Design Expo this month!

It’s no surprise to us that in Nevada’s city of lights the LZF team were awarded both the “Lighting” and “Best of Competition Award of Excellence” for 2011!

Well done to Marivi, Sandro and the team for a wildly successful US tour that also saw them the toast of New York at the ICFF.  We look forward to seeing them in Australia this August as their World Tour continues!

Showtime (Act 2)…

SALONE INTERNAZIONALE DEL MOBILE 2011 draws nearer and each day we receive more and more tasters and teasers from the suppliers who will be using the fair to launch their latest and greatest designs and collaborations.

One of the most exciting meeting of minds is the announcement that the prolific Patricia Urquiola has designed a new chair collection for Andreu World of Spain.  Nub will be unveiled next week in Milan and the rest of the collection will be forthcoming over the next 12 months.  A quintessential Urquiola creation, the chair boasts a striking turned-timber frame that envelopes the sitter and yet its beauty allows it to stand alone when not in use.

LZF are once again upping the ante with the premiere of a film! The graphically rich, digitally animated short explores the wealth of inspiration found in nature, the birth of a concept and it’s growth into a tangible reality… the film only serves to reinforce the trademark artisanship of LZF Lamps.
