Working on some project, design studios and architectural offices often need to create original lighting systems. This in turn requires close cooperation with light-designers and lighting companies. The fruit of partnership of that kind has become an unusual model of LED-luminaire - PAPER PLANE. This art object was created by MDM-Light as a variant of the lighting system for the largest in Eastern Europe shopping center «Aviapark» on Khodynka Field in Moscow. Previously this field housed the first Moscow airport. So from the very beginning of the development of the project the task was given to work out a lighting solution that mimics paper airplanes. Just in a couple of months, the project has passed all stages from sketch to detailed study and field samples. The solution included the establishment of the groups of luminaires in the form of tracks and «swarms» - randomly distributed under the atrium`s ceiling these were functional luminaires and RGB-lightings. The model got so much of success, that it has been put into serial production. For the first time PAPER PLANE was presented at Moscow Design Week in Design Center «Artplay» in October 2014. Anna Masello, representative of the Italian holding Margraf, did not hide her emotions: «The first thing that occurred to me when looking at these planes, is Wow!». Today, this designer luminaire can be seen in the number of private interiors, in the supermarket «Azbuka vkusa» - category «Kids-friendly», opened in March 2015 in the Moscow Central Children's Store, and so on. This elegant model brings lightness to any interior and introduce a game element. Despite the apparent «toying» the luminaire is functional: it provides a comfortable soft light. The RGB-modification with remote control can turn lighting in exciting game. You can control RGB-backlit planes as a separate «airplane» or the whole group. The body lamp-diffuser is made of impact-resistant and light-scattering plastic. The model is equipped with a LED-source, a driver, a cable and a set of hangers.
