Both fixtures utilize two energy-efficient T5 bulbs and a single
ballast that run the length of the fixture. I like to refer to the first
one as the “Architect,” since that was the target client for this
project. Due to the nature of the product, the general form factor was
confined to a rectilinear form. But “Architect” plays with slight
asymmetry, creating dynamic angles that give the viewer a different
impression from either side of the fixture. “Architect” is a very
efficient, 100% indirect suspended lighting fixture.
The second fixture is 10% direct / 90% indirect lighting. The concept
behind this unit was to create a negative space that orbits the
underside of the form, allowing a controlled amount of light to escape
through the crevice and produce a soft ring of light. The sharp angles
of the fixture combined with the roundness of the end caps create a
harmony between soft and industrial aesthetics. The fixture gives off a
variety of impressions when viewed from different angles and distances.
