Joan Gaspar’s Ginger lighting collection pays tribute to the drums of Ginger Baker from the 1960s rock band Cream
Barcelona-based lighting company Marset is world renowned for its modern lighting designs. The company is excited to unveil its new Ginger collection, designed by Joan Gaspar, along with a few other designs, at ICFF. Last year, Marset won the 2013 ICFF editors award for lighting.
The collection’s name comes from the design’s extraordinarily lightweight disk that pays tribute to the drums of Ginger Baker from the 1960s rock band Cream. The Ginger collection explores materials and technology that are new to the lighting industry – namely, layers of wood and paper that are shaped under high pressure. The outcome is an aerial shade just 4mm thick. with a white interior that reflects the light. Ginger also features a high-quality wood finish exterior.
Using LED technology, Ginger comes in two different sizes as a hanging pendant. Ginger is also available as a standing lamp and as a table lamp. All versions come with the choice of an oak or wenge lampshade.
