With the collections "Turciu" and "Albero della Luce" he started producing lights with different long flexing arms, which allow the buyer many options to design and style individually. In 1995 he designs the "Luce d´Oro" series. Lights as "Macchina della Luce" takes centre stage of this collection. In 1997 Enzo Catellani creates the "Stchu-Moon" series. He designs "Luce Nera" in 2000 and the "Out Collection" with the lights "Fil de Fer", "Luna Nel Pozzo" and "Luce Che Dipinge" in 2002.

Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually. He says about design : ''For me honesty describes the true identity of objects. By highlighting the techniques necessary for the structure of the product, and making it a visual part of my design. Therefor I design with both craftsmanship and industry in mind.''
Iskos–Berlin Design is a partnership of Boris Berlin and Aleksej Iskos. The company works within the fields of industrial, furniture and graphic design. Boris and Aleksej have been working together for several years before establishing their company Iskos–Berlin in 2010. In 1987, Boris co-founded Komplot Design, where Aleksej was employed as an assistant for more than 11 years. This long and fruitful cooperation has allowed them to develop a shared philosophy of design. In their own words: “We see design as an art of storytelling. This story is normally quite complex, consisting of semantics, morphology, materiality, technology of objects and many other elements. But the clearer your story is, the more likely people are to understand it. The more surprising you make your story, the more likely they are to remember it. And finally the more you make people smile, the more likely they are to love it!”
Nicholai Wiig Hansen has had his own design studio since he was 26 years old. When Nicholai designs he uses himself as the target group. Proportions are extremely important in his work and details are not added from a decoration perspective but only if they serve some kind of purpose. He is inspired by everything that surrounds him and especially art, food, nature and machinery. When Nicholai Wiig Hansen designs a new product he always thinks the product to end in his head before sketching a single drawing. Everything from production to form and all the way to the end-user perspective.
