Lighting Up Vegas In Style at HD Expo
A rendering of the LZF Lamps booth at HD Expo (#3433)
Global Lighting will have a lively presence at the HD Expo show next week at Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, and we’re beyond excited to be featuring some of our premier collections during the hospitality extravaganza! We’ll be helping to unveil a new collection for B.Lux designed by David Abad, and will be welcoming Grupo B.Lux’s own Harriet Ibarretxe to the show straight from Basque country! Stop by and meet him in their booth (#3431) if you have a chance! Sandro Tothill and Marivi Calvo of LZF Lamps will also be taking Vegas by storm. They’ll have their stunning fixtures at #3433; the dynamic duo has created a dramatic booth of their own filled with lush Link fixtures and winsome ceramic hummingbirds made by Xavier Mañosa of Aparatu Studio. You’ll definitely want to meet them if you are at the show, as the couple oozes inspiration!
We’ll be posting a “Live From the HD Expo” report next Tuesday so stay tuned for all of the excitement! To complement the thoughtful video LZF filmed featuring Mañosa as he made the hummingbirds in his studio (above), I leave you today with a poetic moment:
“Humming Bird” by D.H. Lawrence
I can imagine, in some otherworld
Primeval-dumb, far back
In that most awful stillness, that only gasped and hummed,
Humming-birds raced down the avenues.
Before anything had a soul,
While life was a heave of Matter, half inanimate,
This little bit chipped off in brilliance
And went whizzing through the slow, vast, succulent stems.
I believe there were no flowers, then,
In the world where the humming-bird flashed ahead of creation.
I believe he pierced the slow vegetable veins with his long beak.
Probably he was big
As mosses, and little lizards, they say were once big.
Probably he was a jabbing, terrifying monster.
We look at him through the wrong end of the long telescope of Time,
Luckily for us.
