Lightmaker Studio will launch its Mode, Float and Zig-Zag collections at the Interior Design Show Toronto. In keeping with the Company's design philosophy - all three series use classic forms, pure shapes and materials such as hand-finished brass and hand-blown glass to create sculpture-like modern pieces.
Mode Series Pendant
Varying sizes of blown glass spheres reach out in a rhythmic pattern on a single horizontal plane. Mode contrasts the movement of the globes with a lean and linear profile.
When used in multiples at staggered elevations, the resulting whole is more art-piece than light fixture. Used singly, Mode creates significant presence in a height-constrained space.
Float Series Chandelier
A rigid geometric grid balances a seemingly random pattern of globes. Float explores the contrast between the opulent brass and glass spheres and the highly defined horizontal orientation.
While appearing to float, it redefines the chandelier into a semi-flush mount form.
Zig-Zag: Wall or Ceiling
Launched in 2016, Zig-Zag combines classic mid-century lighting forms with a striking modern profile.
Supported by a geometric brass frame, white globes emerge from brass cones, held at ninety-degree angles. While sculpture-like, Zig-Zag is also a functional light source, whether installed on the wall or the ceiling.
As a wall-mounted light source, Zig-Zag provides significant illumination beyond a traditional sconce. As a ceiling-mounted light source the fixture's low profile allows it to be used in rooms or passageways where ceiling heights are constrained.
