product briefs Luceplan: Honeycomb tech Lighting: capsian Grande Koncept Lighting: tono Led Mood Light Reader Service No. 221 Reader Service No. 222 Reader Service No. 223 Hexagonal forms haven’t lost any popularity with designers, and Habits Studio demonstrates this with its Honeycomb suspension light for Luceplan. The injection-moulded polycarbonate fixtures are composed of three cells that can be connected to other cells via small clasps to create unique configurations. Available in white, Honeycomb can support halogen or LED light sources. Inspired by iconic Moroccan lanterns, the Capsian Grande pendant features an abstracted hanging lamp shape suspended from an antique bronze, black, satin nickel, or white cable. Hand-blown by Italian artisans, the 20-inch-long glass fixtures have a subtle gradient effect in steel blue or smoke hues, and can be specified for compact fluorescent or incandescent lamping. Those who subscribe to the idea that color can affect one’s mental and emotional state will enjoy testing that theory with this new LED lamp. The monolithic floor light stands 48½ inches high and is one slim inch in thickness. Its 126 LEDs produce white light, cool or warm tints, and approximately 1,500 colors that can be changed via touch slider and three simple buttons. A shuffle mode can also be set to cycle through the whole spectrum. cappellini: Meltdown Vintage Marquee Lights: New colors Reader Service No. 224 Reader Service No. 225 Young Swedish designer Johan Lindstén molds delicate transparent spheres that look as if the bulbs are about to melt through colored glass. Inspired by the transformation of objects damaged by the 2011 nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan, his Meltdown pendants strive to form beauty out of disaster. The 11-inch-diameter pieces are available in amber, amethyst, grey, light blue, rose, and tobacco. Vintage lights can transform signage from ordinary to sprightly and attention-grabbing, but could also be used simply as decorative accents. Whatever the application, Vintage Marquee Lights is making it easier to pair its lights with interiors by offering new handpainted colors: black, dark blue, dark or light green, orange, pink, purple, red, turquoise, yellow, and white. Letters, numerals, and symbols are available in custom fonts, and each light stands two feet high. 32 january | february 2013
