I’ve just checked back and found that Cameron |Peters Fine Lighting has been responsible for supplying Kevin Reilly lighting to UK specifiers since 2006, so we’ve kind of got the hang of them by now!
This post brings you up-to-date with recent introductions.
The glorious Seva (above) is an innovative pendant light. They say, “This year, the Kevin Reilly Collection gives new momentum to its line of lighting fixtures by offering different models centered around their metal work. While it has always been a common thread within the collection, we are now seeing a dramatic new interpretation on the way in which light can be revealed.
"Architectural and sculptural, the Seva pendant is unique in that it is capable of holding light as well as sharing it as a focal point within a space. There is an emphasis on the dialogue between material and light, and the play between sculpture and function.”
We say, this is a strong, sculptural object that will cast light up and down, with no glare. Yes, the “shade” is not translucent, but for many applications this will not be a problem, any more than a non-translucent lamp shade on a table light is necessarily a problem.
There are two sizes: W46cm and W147cm. Both are H71cm and D28cm. Here is a picture of the long one:
The exterior is in the usual range of Kevin Reilly finishes, and the inside options include a dark read powder coat – such drama!
Bamba is also a pendant:
This time the shade is semi-translucent. It is a simple, elegant shape in Kevin Reilly’s materials and finishes (that are rightly so popular at the moment). It comes in three sizes, though I know it does not look it from the picture below! What is happening is that there are three diameters (the largest being 91cm). You can choose one or two small or large shades, to create any of these four poses:
Make sure that you are aware of their size:
The delicate Pattern comes as a floor light, a table light and a desk light:
Then, this is the Kolom wall light, that comes as standard in two sizes, and as a fixed or a swing arm. Custom options are also available:
The standard shade material for Bamba, Pattern and Kolom is the wonderful watercolour paper than Kevin spent so long finding.
As it is for Kanaal, (the most recent introduction) but you can also use customer's own. It comes as standard H13cm W26cm and in four lengths (147cm, 183cm,213cm and 244cm) though, as usual, custom sizes are also possible.
As always, if you are in the UK, contact us for tear sheets, finish options (it is easy to misunderstand these), prices and general advice (though, as I write, detailed Pattern info is not yet available).
