ZOLLER DESIGN LAMPS AND ACCESSORIES READY FOR U.S. LAUNCH

 28 Artist-Created Lighting Products Include
 First-Ever Series of Fiberglass and Resin Lamps
 IRVINE, Calif., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- A collection of brightly colored and dramatically shaped lamps, which include the first-ever to be manufactured entirely from resin and fiberglass, will make their United States premiere next week.
 Taking a cue from contemporary sculpture, Zoller Design will debut its full line of artist-created lighting products and home accessories before architecture and design "cognoscenti" at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, being held May 16-19, 1993, at Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.
 The series of 28 halogen and incandescent table, floor and wall lamps -- as well as specialty pieces that include candlesticks and vases -- is the innovation of Steve Zoller, a commissioned and widely exhibited Southern California artist. For his newest medium -- lighting -- Zoller has borrowed heavily from the vivid colors and exotic shapes found in his well-respected body of work that includes paintings, prints and tapestries.
 The assemblage melds Zoller's continuing fascination with texture, form, color and materials. In addition to the fiberglass and resin lamps in the collection, Zoller Design features products crafted of hand-blown Murano glass from Italy and an array of textured and polished metals.
 Hand crafted in the company's Irvine factory under the watchful eye of Zoller and his partner, David Kaagan, a former Stiffel Lamp executive who oversees the operation's business side, Zoller Design seeks to elevate American appreciation for lighting as an overlooked artistic medium.
 "Europeans have a long-held appreciation for lighting design's inherent aesthetic qualities," said Zoller. "On the other hand, Americans have only recently begun to embrace the importance of lighting's impact on decor and ambiance. We're not only in the business of lamps, we're interested in remaking American tastes."
 Adding a distinctive twist to its standard product line, Zoller Design will manufacture certain lamps in an ever-changing spectrum of colors and specifications, such as height or shade type. The intention, according to Zoller and Kaagan, is to limit availability of select pieces in particular hues, and enhance those lamps' distinctiveness as functional art.
 Having been successfully sold throughout Europe for the past two years, Zoller Design products will now be marketed in the United States through the architecture and interior design trade, as well as through a select network of specialty, furnishing and lighting retailers. The collection's suggested retail prices range from about $50 for a fiberglass candlestick to more than $1,500 for a hand-blown Murano glass table lamp.
