Humanscale unveiled Vessel, an architectural lighting solution created by Todd Bracher. Available to ship in May, this clear cylindrical light is made of the highest quality quartz crystal, providing beautiful, glare-free light in a simple, refined form.
"Vessel aligns to the principles of performance and quality that are of significant importance to Humanscale and to myself," commented Bracher. "It does not represent a stylistic approach to lighting, but a scientific one, with a focus on physics and optical engineering. With the use of engineered optics, the light source is hidden, resulting in a magical throw of light from an unseen source. Vessel was born from challenging ideas around light quality and working to achieve the highest possible quality of light. From that premise, the light was created based on complex optical physics, and it offers perfect diffusion, is well balanced, has a high color rendering and is totally glare free. Thus, the true beauty of Vessel lies not only in its form, but in the quality of light it produces."
Easily installed as a single pendant or by the hundreds in large chandelier applications, Vessel provides an elegant solution for installations far beyond the corporate environment. Featuring both pendant and sconce options, Vessel is well suited for hospitality and residential settings. The light throw is optimal for dining tables in homes and restaurants and is perfectly calibrated to eliminate residual LED glare - casting tables, bars, lobbies, and walls in a soft circle of uniform white light.
