The Innovators Issue: Junya Ishigama's genre-busting architecture, Sidewalk Labs and the future of the city, and more!

1 F39 Pivot by Fabbian
A simple linear fixture in white or grey, repeated across the wall or ceiling horizontally and/or vertically, gives this lighting installation its sense of conceptual drama. Designed by Vittorio Massimo, the aluminum structure is surface mounted by its ends and directs LED illumination through its light bar.

 

2 Vaeder by Modular Lighting Instruments
Belgium’s MLI is on a mission to make track lights more exciting. This fixture, designed by Gerd Couckhuyt, conceales an LED light line and slim diffuser inside an evocative honeycomb structure. Billed as “the perfect light for a relaxed workspace,” Vaeder comes in two finish choices for the outer and inner shells – black and white – that can be mixed or matched.

 

3 Moonline and The Running Magnet by Flos
It’s difficult to choose just one technical lighting innovation from the Italian lighting brand, so here are two. Moonline (left), designed by Frank Sinnaeve and Stephan Gunst, is an aluminum profile recessed into a plasterboard ceiling and/or wall. The Running Magnet (right) builds on this idea of surface-flush illumination, with the ability to add or take away lighting modules, including light bars and spots, for a completely flexible system.

 

4 Hydra by Danese Milano
Carlotta de Bevilacqua might not be a household name, but she should be. The Italian designer is a lighting dynamo, and her latest reconsiders what a light fixture can be and do. It distributes light along a thin line of fibre optic cable – each run is five metres – that can be contorted, looped and twisted throughout a space, and held in place by hooks. Pendant shades and cylindrical diffusers can be added for additional downlighting.
