The center of Luceplan’s showroom contains a mock-up of a Manhattan apartment where illuminations—in this case a colorful Costanzina table lamp and a slim Chichibio floor-length model—are the focal point. So it’s no surprise the store is a favorite with modernist interior designers and architects alike who walk through the stark, white space, studying the product wall displays, searching for inspiration. Super-sleek light fixtures designed by Luceplan’s Milanese founders set this shop apart from its Soho lighting rivals, Ingo Maurer and Artemide. Those looking for whimsical lighting gravitate to the fun pendant styles that dangle from the ceiling in the form of cones, balls, and cylindrical shapes, and the gutsy splurge on a massive, aluminum-ribbed Queen Titania suspension number, a definite conversation piece. Meanwhile, staid home offices—or even larger, corporate operations purchasing in bulk—can benefit from an extensive line of flexible Berenice LED wall and table lamps, which will glam up even the dreariest desk.
