PIN, Lumina

Foster + Partners and Lumina have had an extremely fruitful relationship that began with the iconic Flo lamp. To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the partnership, the practice has designed a series of luminaires that explore the mechanics and poetics of reflected light. All three lamps embody an honest aesthetic that is inspired by their function, the process of making and the tactility of materials.

Pin is a small lamp that can be used as an intimate source of light for the bedside or table-top. It has a single anodised aluminium and CNC-machined stem that contains a single LED light source. The light is reflected off the inside of a circular top containing a bespoke flexer that distributes the light evenly around the stem. The light can be dimmed or brightened by lightly touching the top of its circular top and is available as mains powered or with a rechargeable battery in a range of metallic finishes.
