Ceiling slinky

Ceiling slinky

In Hungarian apparently, the word Illan means something temporary and fleeting, and it’s the name given to young Hungarian designer Zsuzsanna Horvath’s new thin, flexible, plywood suspension lamp, which responds delicately to the movements of air in a room. Generating an effect that’s looks like a ceiling hung slinky, the lamp, which is available up to 1m in diameter, generates constantly modulating shadows cast from the warm LED light source in the centre. Finally going into production with Italian lighting firm Luce Plan – it highlights the power of self-belief – Horvath originally presented the design as a prototype at Milan’s 2019 Salone Satellite, where the firm picked it up and ran with it.
