Interior designer Kevin Gray is in Italy for Salone del Mobile Milano, the Milan Furniture Fair, a one week design event for international designers and manufacturers to discover the latest furnishings and accessories. This year, Supersalone is celebrating the fair’s 60 anniversary with special exhibits and events, and a new opportunity for visitors to shop at the fair. But that’s not Kevin’s only purpose for visiting Milan. Kevin is honored to announce that Lumen Center in Milan wants to relaunch his lamp design Orbit in conjunction with Design Week Milano 2021:
Back in 1981, after graduation from Parsons Paris School of Design in France, I had moved to Paris and embarked on designing lamps that were produced in France, Italy and Germany and were sold worldwide. About 6 months ago I received a call from Lumen Center, Milano, asking if we could re-launch my “Orbit“ lamp in anticipation of Design Week Milano 2021, which opened this weekend. The original Orbit was produced in black, and we’re now assembling a new model in brass to celebrate the 40 years since Orbit was first designed!

2021 marks the 40th anniversary of the original Orbit lamp by Kevin Gray. The Orbit lamps are in the prototype stage now, and Kevin and Lumen Center are introducing modifications to the original design including manufacturing the new Orbit model is in brass.
Lumen Center has produced the brass Orbit prototype for 2021, and Kevin is taking requests for the first lamps to be released. Contact Kevin for information to purchase his Orbit 40th anniversary lamp, price not yet confirmed.
Kevin also designed the popular Zandt lamp in 3 different models and heights, Floor Torchère, Floor Reading, and Desk Lamp, which is now in the prototype stage to be reissued.
Kevin continues to design custom furniture, lighting and accessories for residential and commercial interior design projects.
