This month, we’re celebrating all things modern design here on the blog, highlighting pieces that have made design history, new and buzzworthy introductions and the stories behind contemporary work from all over the globe. Be sure to check back all month long, and stop by The Design Event at Lumens.com, our semi-annual sale on 12+ modern design brands.
A 2009 design, Luceplan’s Hope Suspension Light was immediately recognized for its stunning design–the fixture won a Good Design Award, a Red Dot Design Award and a Compasso d’oro Award all in its first year. Hope was created by Argentinian designer Francisco Gomez Paz and Luceplan co-founder Paolo Rizzatto and was inspired (and named after) the brilliant 45-carat Hope Diamond–alleged curses not included, of course. And even though the design itself feels ultra glam, the Hope Suspension fits right in with a multitude of styles and spaces–a light and airy addition to a contemporary space or a bit of bling for a rustic room. In fact, seeing Hope on its own doesn’t quite do it justice–it’s presence in a room is really what makes it shine.
So, with many thanks to Pinterest, we rounded up a few samplings of how Hope brings some serious wow factor to a space:
I love how this is a relatively modest, modern space that allows Hope to really take center stage. Via Contemporist.
A spot near a big window lets the fixture reflect natural light as well, so it shines when turned on or off. Via Contemporist.
This light and airy space is perfect for a light and airy hope — we’re guessing it looks gorgeous at night! Via Pinterest.
Hellooooo, beautiful. Remember what we said about those windows? Here, Hope uses them to even pick up the brilliant colors in the sunset. via Luceplan.
Opposites attract: A rustic modern space is a perfect contrast to the delicacy of the Hope Suspension. Via Pinterest.
The Hope Suspension comes in three sizes–the largest spanning 43 inches–which makes it a great statement-maker for grand entryways like this one. Via Pinterest.
Loving the combination here between the dark cabinetry, pop of color over head and Hope’s edgy glamour. Via Contemporist.
