The decorative element should have more to do with the effect of light, and less to do with calling attention to the design purely for the sake of decoration.

LightKulture.com is proud to offer Marset Lighting, authentic contemporary lighting from Spain. This family run business from Barcelona, started in the 1940’s on the principles of meaningful simplicity in design. The lights should create an atmosphere of character that help people improve their quality of life. Their constant quest for new direction, combined with their vision of the future, inspire them to create long lasting, multipurpose lamps and fixtures that take a simple approach to design and decoration.
“Marset has a very pure design philosophy”, noted Susan Inderbinen, President of LightKulture.com. “The decorative element should have more to do with the effect of light, and less to do with calling attention to the design purely for the sake of decoration. For example, The Mercer Collection combines two very simple design elements, a raw cotton ribbon shade floating in a simple transparent blown glass structure. The Soho is another interesting series of light. Designer Joan Gaspar was inspired by the simple , traditional cafeteria style lamp. After studying different proportions and materials, new uses and lighting effects have emerged. Thanks to the use of rotary molded polyethylene, large sizes of diffused light can be obtained. This spun material has an interesting characteristic to it, which can be used indoors or out”.

“On one of our sourcing trips to Valencia, my husband and I took a side trip to Barcelona. It was there that we were first exposed to Marset. For the past 6-7 years I have been keeping an eye on them. It is the kind of product line that stands out for being so simple and clever, but until recently, it was not readily available to us in the American market. One of my favorite pieces in their collection is Christophe Mathieu’s Discoco. The spherical shape is comprised of a number of floating discs that both shield the light, while reflecting light onto the underlying discs. We have recommended the suspension fixture and flush mounted Discoco for hotels, restaurants, retail stores and private residences. This fixture creates a very comfortable atmosphere that really enriches the surrounding” noted Susan.
