Lodes Talks Series: discover the minds behind the collection

Three celebrated designers and their latest creations mark 2021 as a new era for Lodes and reflect the brand’s commitment to distinctive decorative design.


Lodes, the long-established Italian contemporary lighting brand, has unveiled the latest products within its 2021 collection. The JIM suspension lamp by multidisciplinary French designer Patrick Norguet, the Aile wall lamp by renowned Italian designer Luca Nichetto, and the Cima suspended lamp by Vienna-based Marco Dessí will all join the brand’s existing portfolio of contemporary lighting.

Inspired by the old industrial lamps of the designer’s ateliers of the early 1900s. JIM is an archetype of light, a timeless lamp which blends naturally in the living environment. According to Patrick Norguet, the inspiration behind JIM is the relation with Lodes and their R&D team – “We wanted to give a practical, simple solution which meets the requirement of the company and is also new, modern and timeless”.

“Suspended” lamp Cima, designed by Marco Dessí, is an extremely flexible lamp characterised by a ceiling-to-floor rope. “I have a certain attraction for ropes, for what I associate them with – alpine sports, the nautical world. The rope seems so simple at first glance but, in the detail, it has these extremely sophisticated weaves … and the colours are bold, conceived to be seen in water, snow or climbing.”

The new Aile aluminium wall lamp features a simple and dynamic design reminiscing the aileron of sport cars. Designer Luca Nichetto said - “Aile is a tribute to the heritage of Italian sports car designs, and to made in Italy itself”.
