UFOs UFOsfamily of luminaires for LobmeyrLobmeyr’s famous chandeliers for the New York Met were inspired by distant galaxies at the height of the space age. The aesthetic universe of the time was heavily influenced by Hollywood B-Movies like The Flying Saucer. With the UFO series we evoke precisely this lost innocent vision of the future. We are reminded of our remaining dream: floating in space. Each ‘flying object’ has a special element that plays the lead, be it art nouveau drops or antennas citing the Met chandelier. By differently arranging glass and brass, each chandelier has its own lighting properties. Lobmeyr is linked to space travel not only by its tradition of innovation. In orbit and in Vienna every piece is unique. Photos by KIM+HEEP, product photos by Lobmeyr & Konrad Limbeck, portrait by Kramar/Kollektiv Fischka.
