The minimal FLO range of lights was Foster + Partners first collaboration with specialist Italian lighting manufacturer, Lumina. Available in floor, desk, bedside and wall variations, the light integrates the latest dimmable LED technology within a streamlined, curving form. The cold-formed head and slender aluminium frame are balanced by a circular steel base and a delicate profile is created by eliminating superfluous moving parts, such as coils and springs. The head can also be rotated by 300 degrees for direct task lighting.
ORSA, Artemide pendant light is an embodiment of precision – an elegant pendant light pared down to its essential elements, allowing the light to express a larger volume. A slim metal stem flares out at one end to form the heat-sink and housing for the LED, with a UV bonded moulded glass cover containing the light source. The design of the glass cover ensures that the light source remains invisible, giving it an appearance of a floating disk of light. Elegant and minimalist, Orsa is designed to be hung as a single piece or as a part of a larger ensemble.
The Lumina DOT pendant light began as an idea to create a ‘disc of light’. An assembly of two parallel discs connected by a metal stem, its simple form belies an inherent complexity that pushes the boundaries of existing technology. The smaller disc – made of machined aluminium – contains a ring of LEDs that bounce the light off the larger spun aluminium reflector.
Following on from the success of the Eva lamp, Lumina is releasing a smaller version called Eve – a streamlined version of the original that contains a thin metal bevel at the top and a touchtronic base that replaces the dimmer-wheel.
Hoy is an integrated lighting range designed for Artemide providing flexible solutions for a wide variety of building types. Consisting of an LED linear strip light and two LED spotlights – fixed and adjustable – the range has a minimalist aesthetic that embodies exceptional precision and simplicity of form. Hoy’s versatility allows it to be used in a range of spaces, and the fittings can be either suspended, surface, track or channel mounted. An independent lighting system in its own right, the dimensions, details and finishes of the Hoy devices are also compatible with the Node system.
Tia is a glass pedant light designed to be used as a single luminaire or in a cluster. It combines a hand-blown Venetian glass shade – available in three different sizes – with an integrated light engine at the centre. The light engine has a specially developed lens that evenly distributes light from the downward-pointing LED onto the glass shade. The luminaire is touch-dimmable, with the glass shade available in a variety of colours.
