Designheure reissues 1970s Nonne ceiling light by Raoul Raba


A minor classic of space age design is back on the market – the Nonne ceiling light by Raoul Raba, also known as the 'Nun'.

Dating back to 1972 and reissued by Designheure, it's a design typical of the era, but at the same time, very individual. Made from a single piece of metal, it offers up a curved, fluid shape that partly exposes the bulb and throws out a very distinctive shot of light.

That metal is lacquered steel and the price of the reissued light is £321 online.

1960s Radiolaire table lamp by Raoul Raba


We featured the ceiling version a couple of days back, but now we've discovered another variation of this 1960s gem – the Radiolaire table lamp.

Designed by Raoul Raba in 1968, it's a mix of functional item and decorative art, using polycarbonate to create that strange space age shape, which is actually handcrafted in a small factory in its native France, underpinned by an enamelled aluminium frame.

Available online, it sells for £206.
