If you are tired of all those whimsy pieces, if you don’t want any color plays and crazy shapes, I’ve got a great lamp collection for you. These pieces feature only basic shapes, elegant colors and a refined feel in design, which makes them timeless.
Canadian lighting designer Saleem Khattak of Archilume presented three luminaire systems: Alto, Aura and Balance. Alto resembles the craftsmanship of a cut diamond with its strong upper conical shape and transparent base. Using Archilume’s signature “total internal reflection optics,” Alto’s warm, glare-free glow ranges from a full brightness of 3000 degrees Kelvin to a dimmed down color temperature of 1800 degrees Kelvin.
Aura is divided into two hemispheres that make up its bold spherical form. The top half is made of aircraft-grade machined aluminum while the lower half is a clear optical lens. Both Aura and Alto employ Archilume’s new Dim to Warm feature to emit a warmer light when dimmed.
