Eva Zeisel Debuts Lighting Line With Leucos

Eva Zeisel Celebrates Her 105th Birthday by Debuting a Lighting Line

While most people would've been content to retire decades earlier, designer Eva Zeisel is still innovating. Now, as she celebrates her 105th birthday this November, the iconic designer will debut her first-ever lighting line with Leucos, distinguished by its Italian contemporary hand-blown glass lighting. Zeisel's lighting line, which will debut this Fall, will include two pendants, two wall sconces, and two table lamps that are available in glossy white and natural earth tones. These pieces, which will work with incandescent, CFL, and LED bulbs, will feature an organic, curvaceous look interpreted from Zeisel's initial two-dimensional sketches. Zeisel notes, “I always like to design at least two shapes together, so that I create a family that relates to each other. These lights are cousins.” The line will include a shade-less table lamp and glowing, rounded pendants.

Eva Zeisel's life is truly inspirational. She was the first woman to showcase a one-woman show at New York's Museum of Modern Art in 1946. In 2005, she was awarded the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award For Lifetime Achievement. Zeisel’s works can be found in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, and Brooklyn Museum in New York; the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Musée des Beaux-Arts, Montreal; Bröhan Museum, Germany, and many others. Take a look at the video below for a glimpse into this centurian designer's unique process.
