From the year of their creation, Sandra Lindner's "Selene" glass ball lamps were immediately added to the Contemporary line by ClassiCon. The conditions for this are quite simple:
"... Our modern classics are collector's items - not only the masterpieces of yesterday, but also of tomorrow. Above all, it's about producing one-of-a-kind pieces that through their originality and formal perfection possess the potential to one day become classic works themselves …"
Further evidence of the manifestation of that potential: "Selene" pendant lamps were chosen by Sir Terence Conran for his remodelling of the Café Drechsler in Vienna; can be seen at the acclaimed David Chipperfield Architects' Empire Riverside Hotel in Hamburg and illuminate the Schirn Art and Exhibition Hall in Frankfurt.
ClassiCon brand stands for quality, individuality and a timeless aesthetic - regardless of passing fashions. More important than the degree of fame achieved by the designer is a demonstrated fascination with new formal concepts. This focus helps ClassiCon to continually discover exciting young designers.
In the early 1970s, Eileen Gray began to collaborate with Zeev Aram to develop her furniture and lamps for series production. In 1973 she signed a worldwide contract with Aram Designs, London, to bring her designs into production for the first time. ClassiCon produces and sells the Eileen Gray Collection as worldwide licensee of Aram Designs Ltd, London.
Each individual piece in the collection is indelibly marked and numbered consecutively.
The ClassiCon signature provides a guarantee that only high-grade materials and methods are used in production - meeting all ecological requirements - and that every piece of furniture has passed strict quality control. ClassiCon's logo offers the assurance that each limited edition is an authentic replica of the original, made with the consent of the rights holders.
