What’s the Bright Idea?

From electromagnetic induction to LED-generated network connections, the newest in lighting design is brilliantly bright… in more ways than one.


R2 C | B.lux

Part of a new decorative lamp collection by David Abad for B.lux, the R2 C consists of a circular ring with LED floodlight modules that provide uniform lighting. The result is an unimposing fixture that is perfect for low ceilings. As with a previous suspension version in the same collection, the R2 C is available in three sizes – 60-, 90- and 120-cm – in natural oak, bronze, white or black matte.

Lantern and Pillar Pendants | hollis + morris

Design studio hollis + morris is known for its sculptural lighting fixtures, achieved here in the Lantern and Pillar Pendants. An extension of the Shapes Collection, the fixtures each feature a hollow geometric design suspended by simple black cords. The lights, available in solid walnut or oak and finished in hard wax oil, are handmade in North America. They are also available in two production sizes.

PH 5 | Louis Poulsen

To celebrate its 60th anniversary, the iconic PH 5 by Poul Henningsen for Louis Poulsen is now available in mini size, classic white, modern white and six vibrant colour combinations (orange, rose, red, green, blue and grey). As always, the fixture is 100 per cent glare-free with a downward and lateral light, and finished in polished copper, matt powder coat or matt wet paint, depending on the selected colour.

Brixton Spot Pendant | Innermost

Designed by James Bartlett, who was inspired by turrets found on medieval castles and Victorian architecture in London, each pendant contains an octagonal cylinder with a slotted base that allows light to shine through. Hung from PVC cables, the pendants are manufactured from extended aluminum and available in a variety of sizes and finishes, including gloss white, anodized copper and graphite.

BuzziHat | BuzziSpace

The BuzziHat by Alain Gilles is useful in more ways than one. The quirky, hat-shaped pendant not only provides direct, dimmable lighting, but also boasts sound-absorbing qualities, making it ideal for noisy workspaces. The BuzziHat shade and ring detail are available in four different colours (white, black, beige red and gold), whereas its upholstered top can be customized in a wide range of custom fabrics and different height options for optimal sound absorption.

Flynn LED Pendant | Eureka

For the fourth year running, a Eureka product has won a Red Dot Award, this year for its Flynn LED Pendant. The fixture features a retro aluminum shade with bold exterior lines and a generously curved, highly diffused interior white reflector. At its centre, a disk containing a powerful LED floats while providing ample illumination. The Flynn Pendant is available in a fine textured anthracite or matte white finish.

 

adorne Collection | Legrand

The adorne Collection combines innovative light switches and charging solutions with custom finishes for a smarter, more stylish home. The Pop-Out Outlet, for example, can be hidden from sight when not in use, whereas the hands-free wave switch, soft-touch whisper switch and pre-set timer switch make managing lights more easy and fun. Available in a variety of high end metals and fabrics, these wall plates make a small but powerful statement in any room of the house.

 

Harlow Dried Flowers | Gabriel Scott

Part of the Harlow Series of sculptural pendants, chandeliers and sconces, the Harlow Dried Flowers light bears a remarkable resemblance to its name. The blown glass and metallic-framed fixture makes a statement through its romantic form and masculine-meets-feminine appeal. Conceived by Gabriel Rakon and Scott Richler — the creative team behind the design studio Gabriel Scott — the fixture is handmade in Montréal and available in a variety of finishes including alabaster white or smoked black glass, and blackened steel, satin copper, satin brass or satin nickel frames.

Prisma and Kronos | Luminis

Luminis has launched second generation versions of their popular Prisma and Kronos pendants. The products retain the fundamental design elements of their predecessors while improving performance, modernizing aesthetics, extending lifetimes, increasing efficiency and yielding greater output. The Prisma consists of 14 pendants available in 12”, 16”, and 22” diameters, while the Kronos offers two models with 12” diameters. Both styles can be ordered with diffuser or reflector options.

 

Tracking Magnet EVO | FLOS Architectural

Creative, flexible, reliable and precise, the system carries a 48-volt electrical core up, around and across walls and ceilings, allowing light strips to be installed and re-positioned without tools or exposed hardware. Featuring dimmable lights and three colour options (chrome, white and black) the tracking system fits seamlessly into any space, from retail shops to modern residences and more.

 

MyLiFi | Global LiFi Tech Inc.

Global LiFi Tech has reinvented the concept of next-generation “smart” lighting. Their new MyLiFi LED desk lamp, designed by Pierre Garner of eliumstudio, transmits data wirelessly through an LED light to the user’s device, resulting in a data connection that is fast, secure and free of harmful electromagnetic waves. As the world’s first LiFi-connected object available to the general public, the lamp reinvents the broadband internet connection, and as such, was twice the winner of a 2018 CES Innovation Award. The MyLiFi is made of lightweight aluminum lacquered in pristine white, with coloured cords in red, blue and yellow.

 

Navicula│wakaNINE

Designed by David Trubridge, Navicula is derived from the microscopic diatoms that float around the world’s oceans. The thin curved pieces of bamboo create a flowing structure that also casts magical patterns.
