Light is The Most Important Factor

We know the quality of lighting in a space defines its character and creates impressions.

The human eye perceives its form through the incidence and reflection of light and in that way acquires information about the ambiance in a given place.

Visual impressions are interpreted in our brains and put in context to create emotions that move us to take particular actions.

Lighting in a living room will be warm and dimmed, there will be no brilliant points and instead, the distribution of light reveals textures, color, and balances the dark and clear areas. This atmosphere, when read by our visual system, creates a comfortable impression that helps us to relax and enjoy the moment.

Lighting in a working place or showroom will be cool in appearance, brilliant and focused on the specific places of work. The room will be evenly lit, it will be perceived as wide and clean; this impression creates a dynamic mood in which different tasks are developed with more energy – mental and physical

Light also provides a safe environment in public spaces. A place where people can meet and enjoy a diverse range of activities. Historic areas, squares, parks, pedestrian streets are all become useful areas to the public thanks to good lighting

Simplicity in Every Way

Our favourite product this week is this diffused light pendant made up of 19 metal coils spreading out from the globe with the lamp in the centre outward.

Designed by Brian Rasmussen for Lucente, the design is neat and geometrical at the same time looking vibrant and random. We love how this fitting would look just as great over a dining table, as it would hanging in an entrance hallway or in a living room. Available in glossy white and red painted finishes.

For Those long Summer Nights

Spanish lighting company Vibia have just released their latest creation, Port. for which designer Josep Lluis Xucla took inspiration from traditional Japanese lanterns.

We love the versatility of this product. Fully portable, it brings a warm comfortable light to any outdoor area, used as a floor lamp or perhaps to light a table. We even think that when not in use outdoors, the contemporary, elegant design would look right at home indoors too.

Long Live The Light Bulb


Dutch designer, Ernst Koning pays homage to the humble light bulb with his latest design, ILLUMIMATE.
