Milan: Let There be Light

Euroluce, one of the largest lighting expos in the world is held every other year alongside the furniture fair in Milan. The 26th edition offered task and outdoor lighting systems–as well as chandeliers, wall sconces, and pendants–presented by 450 exhibitors from around the globe. 

Old world Venetian glassmaker La Murrina got into the act with their modular hanging light Victoria (shown above), composed of glass rods, designed by Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez. Innovative technologies and forms were also launched by Flos, Luceplan, and Artemide.
