Levante, designed by Marco Spatti, selected for the ADI Design Index 2023

20 December 2023

The Levante suspension lamp by Luceplan designed by Marco Spatti has been selected by the ADI Permanent Design Observatory for publication in the ADI Design Index 2023. An important acknowledgment that stems from the in-depth research on materials and technical lighting design embodied by the product. Levante is a chandelier of great emotional impact, based on the creative intuition of the designer, together with the research on materials, technology and design conducted by Luceplan. A new protagonist for living areas in the home, but also for contract applications.

The size is impressive, yet the overall image is ethereal, like an organism floating in space. Levante (the name suggests lightness and wind, but also a clear reference to oriental aesthetics) stems from the intersection of three large fans, made in an unprecedented material for the design sector, borrowed from the world of food, with an appearance similar to rice paper, to spread light in a uniform way over surfaces. The thickness of the veils is minimal, and they are attached with magnets to the central core that contains the light source, hidden as if it were an organic, beating heart.

The lamp comes in two sizes: 1 meter or 60 cm in diameter.

The material is washable, strong and recyclable.

The ADI Design Index 2023 represents the second volume of the two-year cycle of selection and inclusion of the products that will be eligible for the Compasso d’Oro ADI Prize in 2024. As is well-known, the Compasso d’Oro award, created in 1954 by “La Rinascente” and then donated to ADI, which has overseen the prize since 1956, is the most prestigious honor assigned for the quality of production and design of goods, services, processes and systems in the field of Italian design. Over the years, the winning products have made it possible to generate a major historical design collection, recognized in 2004 as an asset of “national heritage.” Since 2009, the ADI Design Index has also covered the annual selection for the National Innovation Award (“Prize of Prizes”), under the aegis of the President of the Republic. Each year, this important honor calls for the selection on the part of ADI of three products that are outstanding from the viewpoint of the specific theme of innovation, chosen from the items published in the ADI Design Index (ADI Design Index Prize for Innovation) and then eligible for the prestigious “Prize of Prizes.”
