Miguel Herranz was born in Valencia, Spain in 1972 and studied industrial design at CEU San Pablo Valencia. He has been involved in design projects since 1994 and has worked in diverse fields such as furniture, illumination and the automobile industry. In general, Miguel always works to create pieces that maximize the potential of the companies he works for. He has collaborated with a variety of companies, such as B.Lux, CJC Concepta, Viccarbe, Luzifer, Novum, Chueca, Vanlux, Manufacturas Celda, Indartu, Blauet, Wieden Simó, Comytel, Garogres, Supercerámica.His products stand out due to their individuality and freshness as well as their sculptural and conceptual nature.
Lzf Lamps, or Luzifer as they were originally called, is a small company making very special lights for very special people. Founded by Marivi Calvo and Sandro Tothill towards the end of 1994, this company has been producing handmade lights exclusively out of wood veneer right from the beginning.
This noble material creates a spectacular lighting effect, projecting the internal beauty of the wood and radiating a delicate, warm and attractive atmosphere to both domestic and contract settings. Winner of two Good Design, two Design Plus and one Red Dot prize, Lzf has found its place amongst niche market suppliers worldwide.
This is an elegant, simple design that's very unique in the use of materials (wood veneer that's so thin the light shines through; brushed aluminum back plate). It gives off a perfect spray of light (up, down, and a glow through the fixture). Although a bit small- I wish they made it in a larger size as well for other applications- it has a lot of presence. I bought one for a hallway and have decided to order more of them along a staircase, as well (in a different color). The grey color is lovely.
Y lighting has been great- their customer service is excellent!

Beautiful light, larger than you might think
I purchased these lights for my powder room, and when they finally arrived (I had to wait several months, but it was worth it) they are really nice in my modern home. My only comment is the size, they are just a bit larger than I was visualizing in my mind. I'm sure if I had read the measurements I would have realized this. I bought the white, and painted my powder room black. They give off a nice, soft, light and the 2 of them are enough to light the small room, although you wouldn't want to read in there. I also noticed what another reviewer said about the hardware showing, in my case it only shows when you are sitting on the toilet, looking up at them so it's not a big deal. I'm very happy and recommend them.

Perfect for a stairwell. The side view, front view, below view are all just right. Hardware simple and elegant. My only concern was the bag of elec parts broke in shipping and rattled around. Did not appear to damage fixture.

Puzzle me patience!
Loved the finished product, but the process of assembly for a non spacial person what a laughter nightmare!

Exceeded my expectations.
They are truly beautiful. They hold their own in a room full of art, light, and water. Very elemental.

Beautiful light with natural lines
The cherry Orbit is a warm, brown color when lit and is complimented by everyone who is in our house.

It is luminous, modern and organic all at once.
This is a beautiful light, with a diffused glow and beautiful choice of colors. What a lovely accent for a room!

Beautiful, original, soft light
I purchased this light because I have two sconces nearby (also purchased from Y Lighting) that have a similar Japanese feel. The two sconces have paper shades and this sconce looks a little like origami.
The nice thing about both sconces is that they have a contemporary style yet work well in an eclectic environment.
I hung this light above my stairs and it gives off a soft, warm light. Perfect for my environment.

Pretty from the front only
This is a very cool light fixture unless you see it from the side. All of the hardware is exposed so you can see how it is attached to the wall. I am not crazy about that.

The product exceeded our expectations. It is well constructed, offers beautiful light and is a conversation piece!

the Orbit Light is out there but right on track.
We recently purchased a couple of the Orbit walll sconces for our own home. Wow. They were even better than we had hoped. The wood is thin but not too thin, not flimsey! The color is great, uniiformly colored on all surfaces but transparent enough to let the wood through. They look terrific on the stairway wall.
