This easy-to-install, low-voltage surface system by Arkoslight features miniature profiles (1.5 by 1 centimetres), luminaires and other components for use in spaces where discreet yet effective lighting is required. The pressure-connected LEDs can be arranged with 90-degree rotations and have no discernible fastening elements.
Surface-mount cylindrical brackets and corner connectors let this system of tubular lights climb walls, turn corners, traverse onto the ceiling and form endless geometric, linear and single-path arrangements. Augmenting the flexibility, the LEDs can rotate 360 degrees along their axis to provide both direct or indirect illumination.
These spotlights from London’s Buster + Punch have a dual effect: Honeycomb filters create a precise non-glare effect, while knurled baffles emit a warm metallic glow. The adjustable fixtures’ powder-coated body can be specified in graphite or stone with four baffle finishes, including burnt steel (shown), which resembles the rainbow-like sheen of a motorbike exhaust pipe that has run lean.
Montreal’s Lambert & Fils has reimagined its Dorval 01 pendant by Paris’s SCMP Design Office as a suspension light (plus table, floor and wall lamps). Dorval 05 spaces four of the original square LEDs, which are inspired by airport runway lights and classic Motobécane mopeds, along an aluminum bar that spans 184 centimetres; two new hues — beige and midnight blue (shown) — are also available.
With a magnetic framework, WAC Lighting’s modular solution can be reconfigured and adapted on site while still powered. The range of fixtures — direct, indirect, downlights, wall wash, two spotlights and four pendants — allows for customizable lighting scenarios, all of which can be controlled via an accompanying app.
Few illumination options are as flexible or as sleek as these latest suspension and linear systems.
