A frankly illuminating collection from the Spanish lighting manufacturer
Based in Badalona, Spain, just outside Barcelona, Marset began in the 1940s as a family metal-casting business. From their roots, they evolved to become an expert manufacturer of elegant, contemporary lighting. For the current collection, Marset worked with an array of designers, including Joan Gaspar, Inma Bermúdez, Uli Budde and Sputnik Estudio to create designs that range from adorable and practical to sleek and understated – all while keeping a cohesive visual identity.
Thinking outside the box, the collection offers several multifunctional and unique designs. For example, the FollowMe light by Inma Bermúdez. Portable and rechargeable, the tiny table lamp has a swinging lampshade that allows users to direct the light and LED technology that recharges through a built-in USB port.
Another standout is the Santorini collection by Sputnik Estudio. Around for awhile, Marset has put it into production. The lamps draw their inspiration from lanterns found on fishing boats and can be deconstructed and rearranged to give a variety of different configurations. Santorini can be used as a garland, wall lamp, floor lamp or pendant light, making it ultra-adaptable.
The collection also adds two new colors to the Discocó pendant lamp and explores new materials with the minimalist Ginger collection.
