DESIGNERS SELECT Lighting Designers reveal their favorite new lighting products Manuel Navarro Rich Brilliant Willing: Radient Table Lamp Reader Service No. 210 Egg Collective: Margot George Chandelier Reader Service No. 211 Roll & Hill: Rudi Light, Double Loop Reader Service No. 212 Interior Designer VOA Associates Chicago “I travel to Marfa, Texas, every year and am always inspired by the works of artist Donald Judd there. This LED fixture is a translation of his minimalist ideals, honesty in materiality, and keen attention to details.” “What drew me to this fixture was the smoky glass and hints of rose gold. It reminds me of the drama created by runway models with their big smoky eyes, slicked-back hair, and sultry silhouettes in winter coats.” “I like the simplicity of the form and materials. The cold cathode fixture is easily translatable in corporate, retail, and hospitality environments. I also love that the fixture brings a hint of glamour.” Melissa Salamo OCL: Duo Reader Service No. 213 Vibia: Rhythm Reader Service No. 214 XAL: Minimal Reader Service No. 215 President Salamo Design Studio Burbank, California “This uncomplicated, clean-lined, low-mercury fluorescent pendant comes in di erent lengths. You can connect them seamlessly and wrap several around large columns for a cool lighting e ect.” “This LED pendant is not only functional, but a piece of art. By twisting and turning the strips of light along the spine, it can make numerous configurations, making a unique statement piece for a lobby.” “It’s a great LED fixture for lighting corridors in a mixed-use project where corridors can be long and ominous. Minimal helps to break up the long stretches of hallways and make an otherwise dull corridor an interesting place. When installed flush with the surface, it looks like a band of light.” Miguel Fuentevilla, AIA Arturo Alvarez: Guau Reader Service No. 216 Satelight: Weaver Reader Service No. 217 Marset: Discocó Reader Service No. 218 Principal FORS architecture+interiors Tucson, Arizona “It’s bold for such a small LED fixture. You can use it as a focal point in a room or in a series for making a wall glow.” “The eco-halogen pendant has such diverse uses. Nylon rope is a common material found in any hardware store that 99 percent of the time wouldn’t get a second look—look at it now. It’s beautiful, functional, and creative.” “I saw this halogen wall light and knew it was perfect for a recent project. It feels like it’s inching towards you. It has a static movement that inspires refinement and occupies space quite gracefully.” 90 OCTOBER 2012
