Adolf Loos designed a light for the men’s fashion store Knize in Vienna in 1930 which today serves as the inspiration for new designs from Labvert. The dodecahedron is interpreted based on a contemporary understanding of shape and today’s technology to form a chandelier or light object. The basic shape is implemented in various materials and light media and manufactured in limited series.
The project Loos Lamps is a dialogue between generations. Sculptural quality and new technologies are seen as a continuation of a Viennese design tradition in a contemporary context.
