lightjunction, our new fine lighting event, will be collocated with designjunction at the Sorting Office on New Oxford Street during London Design week, 18-22 September 2013
Well, maybe not everywhere! But we have been delighted -- though not surprised -- by the range of interior designers and projects for which Stilio has hit the spot. Here it is in the foyer of a large hospital:
It comes from Licht Im Raum, one of the most respected companies in our industry. Founded 50 years ago in Düsseldorf as lighting designers, they have created their own range of luminaires (made for them by Dinnebier Licht in Wuppertal). They are therefore one of the very few companies that operate equally successfully in both the technical and the fine lighting arenas.
Steliois based on a simple oval metal module which contains glass rods that are carefully, irregularly, placed both to prevent glare from the lamp and to maximize the play of light in the rods.
...can be multiplied to create very elegant, beautiful chandeliers of any shape or size, that look clean from directly above or below, making them suitable for stairwells:
Bigger compositions are ideally suited to large spaces, here in a Marriott function room/ballroom...
and here in a traditional vaulted quasi-religious space:
Yet they are also perfect for interiors that are elegant, contemporary, art déco or modernist:
The module has been adapted to create a lovely table light:
and here is one of the applique designs...
...which combine perfectly with chandeliers from the same collection:
There is even a lantern:
Now it should be clear why Licht Im Raum is so respected. Do take the opportunity presented by their showing at lightjunction to see the lights for yourself, to experience how satisfyingly made and designed they are. You can also talk to the team -- generally, or specifically about a project. Remember, they are also lighting designers, so they know exactly how their lights perform as lights, and what other lighting would be needed in a space.
Here are a few more applications. A corridor...
...over a large rectangular boardroom or dining table:
And what better light could there be to go over a smaller rectangular table -- a short one...
...or a longer one:
So, if Licht Im Raum's Stilio does not quite work everywhere, I hope that you now agree that it works in lots of places, which is why I've highlighted the ones I've illustrated in bold. Maybe a Stilio would fit somewhere in your current project...? If so, do come and talk it over with the guys.
They come in brushed stainless steel, polished nickel, brass...
...and matt black.
