Laokoon is a compilation of the unconventional strenght of assorted colours, textile, thread and structure. It is a fabric art that continously breaks away from the austere, incessantly discovering and probing new organic forms and structures. Laokoon Design Company was founded in 2011 to promote this unique form of structured fabric.
The possibilities implied in it first materialised in spectacular lamp collections.
The first prototype of their multi-staged development made their debut at 2013 Blickfang trade fair, followed by regular participations with the latest collections at London Design Week, Shanghai 100% Design, Milano Euroluce and Downtown Design at Dubai Design Week.
This absolutely outstanding, innovative and transformable form, uniting art & material was invented by Zsuzsanna Szentirmai-Joly. While Laokoon moving structures currently materalised in the form of designer lamps and wall panels, the possibilities implemented in it are endless. Exactly this is what makes us continuously search for new ideas, state-of-the-art applications and yet empty areas of employment of this technique. Our lighting and wallcovering collections are the perfect addition to inspirational interiors, from contemporary to classic.
