Desktop Wallpaper: April 2013

Desktop Wallpaper: April 2013

I love Matt Lyon’s work. I’ve been following him since the early 2000s and was thrilled when he agreed to do a desktop for our Designer Desktop series. I was even more excited that he decided to illustrate a Vignelli quote because his work mashed up with the Vignellis’ words make a nice juxtaposition!

Matt says of his design:

I was reading about the Vignellis and having known their work was reminded of their more functional aesthetic and Massimo’s ‘The Vignelli Canon’. The quote is true to their ideology, but when read in isolation it struck me as much as a celebratory statement as a manifesto for action or change. It’s quite punk. I can imagine Vivienne Westwood advocating the same expression in her ‘SEX’ boutique during the 1970s. Attitude encompasses more than the whims of fashion, it embodies purpose and asserts meaning.

“Design is not a style, it’s an attitude.” – Massimo and Lella Vignelli

Naica Lamp by Daniel Debiasi & Federico Sandri for Ligne Roset

Naica Lamp by Daniel Debiasi & Federico Sandri for Ligne Roset

The duo Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri make up Something, a design partnership based in London and Verona, Italy, and their latest creation is a lamp called Naica for Ligne Roset.

Naica Lamp by Daniel Debiasi & Federico Sandri for Ligne Roset in home furnishings Category

Inspired by those old carbide lanterns that were used by miners, the lamp is a bit cave-like itself with a hollowed out space that softly reflects the light. The ceramic fixture diffuses the light that way creating a soft, surrounding glow.
