milan design week 2017: for this year’s event, lighting company faro barcelona introduced ‘han’, a lamp-coat hanger designed by álvaro goula and pablo figuera. the product is the result of a first collaboration between both spanish studios. ‘when we were asked to design a wall lamp which at the same time had to be a coat hanger, the first thing we thought was that it was going to be complicated to find a balanced design that integrates nicely the two elements, but in the end, we werre very happy with the result.” declares the design duo.
goula/figuera designed the ‘han’ lamp for faro barcelona as a structure composed of a LED light source, emitting a soft and warm illumination, followed by four hangers. ‘imagine you come back home at night after a concert. you open the door, turn on the lights and the last thing you want is to be welcomed by a powerful and blinding light. han offers exactly the opposite: it welcomes you with a warm and ideal dim light,’ notes the designers. made of steel and PMMA, the design ultimately reflects pure geometric lines and a delicate sense of minimalism that complements the soothing LED lighting.
