studio vit, a pair of designers from Sweden, displayed their second collection for SaloneSatellite entitled Marble Lights. Comprising pendants, floor and table pieces, the designers describe their conception thus: "Originating from an archetypal bulb and socket, it consists of glass spheres and cylindrical marble lamp holders in various sizes which can be freely combined. Marble lights includes table, floor and pendant lights, as well as three floor weights which can be used as counterweights to the suspended lights. The aim of the collection is to create a product that is simple yet refined and generates a juxtaposition of volumes, materials and weights."
