Light+Building 2016: a foreshadowing
Vistosi’s light shines again at the Frankfurt Light+Building 2016 trade fair
Vistosi is back to Germany for the biennial Light+Building, the world’s leading trade fair for lighting and building automation, that will take place on March 13th-18th in Frankfurt. With about 2,500 exhibitors, who will present their products and services in the fields of lighting, electronics and construction to an audience of over 210,000 visitors (one in two of them coming from outside Germany), Light+Building is the world’s only trade fair to combine the fields of architecture and technology, presenting the key sectors for integrated building planning. The fair is therefore an outstanding stage, where Vistosi will showcase on an international basis the developments of the new collections presented at Euroluce fair in 2015 to a wide audience of manufacturers and market leaders from over 50 countries.

Light+Building: the products that anticipate the future of energy efficiency
Light+Building is the meeting place for architects, interior architects, designers, planners, engineers, artisans, the distributive trades and industry, that will find there the most innovative solutions on the market for their activities. The main theme will be energy efficiency. The fair presents solutions that cut the energy consumption of a building at the same time as increasing the level of comfort. From LED technology, via photovoltaic and electro-mobility, to intelligent electricity usages with smart metering and smart grids, the companies can present an integrated spectrum of products and services that make a decisive contribution to exploiting the energy-saving potential of buildings to the full.
The new Vistosi collections at Light+Building fair
Nodo, Oto, Puppet, StarNet, Stardust, Semai, Futura, Essence: the developments of these fascinating collections, presented at Euroluce 2015 – part of the Salone del Mobile in Milan –, will be promoted at the Frankfurt Light+Building 2016. Once again they will be the ideal testimonials of the innovation, quality and refined design of Vistosi products, in which the artisan craftsmanship of the Murano glass combines with the creativity of internationally renowned designers. With these collections Vistosi reiterates its constant attention not only to the latest trends, but also to the market demands in terms of energy savings. Designed by Pio and Tito Toso, Nodo, a freehand blown element, sheds a directional lighting downward that spreads in the ambient and gives a perfect illumination of the surface over which it hangs. Oto is designed by the Toso brothers, too: it is made of spherical blown glass elements available in four sizes and two decorations, allowing infinitive custom combinations. Puppet by Romani Saccani Architetti associati is modular, too, and reinterprets a classic chandelier, but made flexible, lightweight, essential, with a blown glass diffuser with an original irregularly lined 'dégradé' finish: the arms of the chandelier are hung individually to the customer delight. The infinite crystal wefts of StarNet, designed by Gianni Veneziano and Luciana Di Virgilio Veneziano + Team design firm, light up the environment through a LED light source and allow to realize the preferred compositions and to change them anytime on request. Stardust by Francesco Lucchese, taking inspiration from stars too, is a collection of anti-glare – nonetheless with sharp luminescence – chandeliers, made of blown and handcrafted crystal glass, whose metal frames cleverly hide an original fastening system of the arms and of the cabling system. With Semai Saggia and Somella propose a collection of pendant and ceiling lamps made of a glass mouth blown into a steel cage, which reinterprets the ancient Venetian lamp: a free blowing technique making each lamp looking different. Futura takes inspirations from antique lanterns, which Hangar Design Group updates with a metal ring that kindly accompanies the stretched transparency of blown glass in one piece, aiming at the triumph of pure light. Designed by atelier oï, Essence is a collection of lamps with diffuser in handmade glass rods and LED light source: a delicate architecture of glass and metal that opens into a sort of halo and radiates light.
