EMKO new collection is coming to Paris!
August 28, 2017
Life as we know it is a revolving cycle around the Sun. Since the dawn of time, the Sun’s stages shaped the way we interact with the world around us. The skies have become a mirror to humans’ ancestral ways, tied to our well-being, our emotional balance and everyday life activities. Crisp bright blue mornings followed by the red-orange-purple of the sunsets give us energy and joy. On the other hand, a few days of grey cloudy skies or months of short winter days and our mood begins to shift. It doesn’t take much to feel under the weather.
Add to that the modern life style, which has slowly pulled us away from the Sun’s natural cycles as we have moved our activities towards the indoors, inside closed spaces which have shut off our contact with the elements, and our longing for the natural benefits of the Sun increased.
Created during the dark Lithuanian winters comes “SUN-rise/-set”, a lamp that puts the Sun’s colours in the palm of your hand. Winner of the International exhibition Furniture 2012 from Vilnius and the Red Dot Design Concept Award in 2014, this interactive object gives its user the possibility of choosing the right colour palette to suit the desired mood effect according to the moment of the day or personal preference, by gently sliding the light source over the coloured panel. It brings the vibrant and refreshing coolness of bright mornings inside your office or the warmth of cosy evenings to your living room.

Aye Aye candle holders
Aye Aye!, created by etc.etc. design studio, is a fleet of rugged, round and bold iron cast candle holders inspired by the time of adventure and discovery, when the enthusiasm of the Industrial Revolution revealed the world to travellers and fortune seekers.
The fleet is composed of four sizes – from a small tugboat with one funnel to a hefty steamship with four big ones. All navy-themed colours are available: red, blue, black and grey. Each funnel is designed to fit either a tea-light candle for cosy harbour light or a taper candle as a pillar of steam.
Aye Aye! vessels can be combined in any size and number and create various themes that will be easy to adjust to different happenings and backgrounds. One narrow piece will look pleasant on a window sill and distract the solitude. Aligned in a row the pieces will resemble a naval fleet, lighting a fire within. Scattered on a dining table the vessels will seem to sail into an archipelago of plates sparkling good mood for conversation. Because of its shape and mental connections Aye Aye! family feels dynamic although it doesn’t float allowing for any composition, let it be carefully made or left over from last night.
Drawing its inspiration from Industrial Revolution the Aye Aye! family is iron cast and powder coated for its colours. Additional space around the candles acts as an extra safe-zone. A ship is a safe island in an ocean and Aye Aye! is a safe place for a fire at home. Being iron cased the vessels are quite heavy, therefore, stable and hard to flip (not on water where they sink like rocks). Each vessel is sturdy as a rock and a bold design item yet simple enough not to become distracting.
The Aye Aye fleet revokes nostalgia like a candle holder should. The feeling grows stronger combined with the beloved marine theme. As a result Aye Aye! is an universally appealing design item which, through personalized selection of shapes, colours and combinations can be tailored for individual taste and lifestyle.

Short comment from Stéphane Duron – official EMKO sales representative in France: “Sonepar Luminter Showroom is exclusively opened for interior designers and architects, it was founded about 10 years ago with specialization on lighting and very famous about it, but they have decided to include as well from now new design furniture brands as exhibitors in their renovated 600 m2 space in Paris downtown. EMKO has been selected among these new makers thanks to their very attractive products which could seduce many French interior designers. Lithuanian design is now a bit more exhibited in Paris.”
