Name a more iconic duo than Jazz music and Mid-century style … Happy International jazz day!
On the 30th of April, we are celebrating once again the great international jazz day and we can say that nothing can stop us, not even a pandemic. Even though all the events, including the All-Star Global Concert are canceled, this year’s edition will be celebrated online with virtual events, at-home performances, and video drop-ins that will be streamed online.
From our part, we would like to pay a sincere tribute to the Jazz icons on this International Jazz Day for the magnificent work they offered us and which inspires us still today, not only musicians but also us as designers too. Here are some lighting pieces that were inspired by jazz Pioneers.
This passionate, soulful, forceful yet quiet and gentle man has surpassed the Jazz cognoscenti and is seen as the most influential saxophonist in any musical genre. He transmitted the avant-garde jazzy vibe in all his music concerts. Just like this Coltrane floor lamp, it embodies that jazzy and avant-garde vibe and feeling. Handmade in brass and aluminum, the minimal black floor lamp has a matte black finish on the three lamp shades with a gold powder paint on the inside, that provide a smooth lighting effect.
How can we talk about the International Jazz Day without mentioning Miles Davis. Miles was the most revolutionary of all Jazz musicians. He was a restless innovator and changed jazz through several stylistic and technical evolutions. Let’s just say he’s a pioneer. just like Miles Davis. The wall lamp Miles is a modern wall light that has the purpose to represent the impressive charisma of this outstanding Jazz singer, in its innovative and sophisticated lighting features.
Nina Simone or Eunice Kathleen Waymon is one of the most powerful and outspeaking Jazz figures that used her remarkable talent to create a legacy of liberation, empowerment, passion, and love. We couldn’t go without including these characteristics in the design of this chic and luxurious Simone Suspension.
Charlie Parker was a legendary Jazz musician that co-invented Bebop and brought a new level of harmonic, melodic, and rhythmic sophistication to Jazz. Inspired by the legend Charlie, this lighting piece is a golden wall lamp with a stilnovo sconce full of Jazz groove.
