Light Reading

Here are 5 new fixtures that solve common lighting problems

The newest architectural lighting released at the Interior Design Show in Toronto, MAISON&OBJET in Paris, the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, and Light + Building in Frankfurt. Pictured here: Linea Light Group installed Vektor in the exhibition rooms at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris (Nicolas Cardin Photographies).

These new architectural fixtures answer the specific needs of a space across myriad typologies—including a system that is adaptable for multiuse spaces,  a projector that emits both diffused and direct light, and an LED bulb that supports circadian rhythms.

Linea Light Group installed Vektor in the exhibition rooms at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris (shown above). Vektor’s light beam becomes progressively softer toward the artworks’ borders and frames, creating the effect that the objects are emerging from the shadows.

Sharp was designed for precision with an optical system that creates highly uniform light. The fixture pairs polynomial LEDs with a geometric screen, a combination that prevents multiple shadows and diffused spotlights.

This thin adjustable pole is outfitted with two light sources that can be operated separately. A single linear fixture can illuminate intimate spaces or be used in multiple for larger areas.

Lighting Science

Using technology developed in collaboration with NASA, Lighting Science created a light source that supports circadian rhythms. The LED bulbs create the effect of direct natural light in environments where it might otherwise be limited or, worse, completely unavailable.
