Super durable, flexible and elegant, the latest outdoor lights from manufacturers like Kreon, Targetti and Modular Lighting Instruments enhance outdoor spaces long after summer is over.
1 Portfolio by Modular Lighting Instruments
This outdoor LED bollard, by Luc Binst of Belgium’s Crepain Binst Architecture, has the appearance of an illuminated book. “The two versions of the lamp were inspired by the most common paper sizes,” says Binst. Portfolio 0.1 has the dimensions of a A4 sheet and Portfolio 0.2 rises to the height of two A4 sheets positioned end to end. The streamlined fixture comes in black or white polycarbonate.
2 Stilo by Targetti
In wall, ceiling or ground versions, this family of titanium-finished extruded aluminum lights are as minimal as you can get. As such, they suit myriad environments, from building facades and porticos to pedestrian paths, where they can be installed with anti-theft screws to offer lighting effects from defined and graphic to a wider, deeper beam.
3 Up by Kreon
Belgium’s Kreon is sought after for its spare yet elegant architectural lighting solutions. The Up range of recessed LED lamps for interiors and exteriors have an IP67 protection rate to dust and water build up. Available with several light beam options, they come in black or white squares and circles, finished with a sandblasted stainless trim.
4 Nulla by Artemide
Taking cues from tableware, these wireframe floor lamps by Moscow designer Dima Loginoff are ideal for residential or hospitality spaces, such as a garden or courtyard. The line is composed of aluminum and steel, and finished with anti-oxidizing primer and hard-wearing polyester paint.
5 Vitro by Fontana Arte
Dutch designer Emmanuel Babled devised these brilliant LED lamps to appear as though they were cut from glass. Made from injection-molded pieces in self-supporting and self-extinguising technopolymers, Vitro is available in both clear and metallic versions, and can be wall or ceiling mounted, or placed on a floor or table, indoors or out.
