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.Vektor Linea Light Group
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.
Resembling a hockey puck, this fixture is outfitted with an interchangeable cast aluminum screen. Both wall and ceiling fixtures are available in black and white.
Sharp Recessed Carlotta de Bevilacqua for Artemide
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.
Cielo-Terra Studiocharlie for De Padova
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.
Good Day LED Bulb 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.[SPONSORED] Maglin Add color to your Spring collection.

Long before computers and advanced software were available, designers and architects relied on the Humanscale manuals, a set of three booklets that sought to help designers create ergonomic products using human-centered methodology and measurements. It’s every product designer’s dream—a design Bible if you will.
Graphic standard manuals from the 1970s have been all the rage lately. While manuals such as these have been out of print for decades, their scarcity and high demand lead to extremely high prices on sites like eBay—one collectible Humanscale manual is selling for $1,180 on Amazon.
Now, Chicago-based design consultancy firm IA Collaborative is looking to bring Humanscale back through Kickstarter, for an affordable price.
The reprinted version comes in a set of three booklets and nine selectors—rotatable, circular discs that contain more than 60,000 ergonomic and human-factor data bits concerning attributes like age, height, strength, and ability level. Choosing one data parameter will correspond to other parameters (for example, choosing age 12 will show you the appropriate leg room range).
The manuals were originally produced by design firm Henry Dreyfuss Associates, the designers behind iconic products like the Polaroid camera and the tabletop telephone. Its founder, Henry Dreyfuss, is one of the early pioneers of ergonometric design and prioritized data as a measurement for design.
The Kickstarter project is well past its $137,800 goal, and certain "early bird" offers are no longer offered. However, the reprinted versions are still available at $79 per individual booklet or $199 for the entire set.
