Norwegian lighting design star Daniel Rybakken has swiftly gained prominence on the world design stage. In the handful of years since the stand out appearance at the emerging designer pavilion at Salone Satelitte, he went on to be invited to exhibit at the Spazio Rossana Orlandi – pursuing his aim of recreating daylight from artificial illumination.

This year Rybakken joins the bi-annual Euroluce lighting exhibitions, launching his second product  ASCENT (above) for Luceplan. Using an elegant shade that traverses a vertical support, the lighting intensity adjusts from off at the base of the stem, and gradually ascending to project full light as adjusted to the top.

Rybakken’s 2012 offering with Luceplan, Counterbalance (above), has recently been awarded the Elle Decor International Design Award for lighting, the award will be presented during next week’s Salone Del Mobile.

In July Counterbalance will receive a highly coveted Red Dot award for design.

As a highly decorated designer,  he was previously awarded the prestigious Elle Decoration Young Designer of the Year award 2010.
