NIMB

This ring-shaped LED pendant light, which is 1,500 mm or 2,000 mm in diameter, was conceived as a lighting solution for the public sector. Its antiglare, white body diffuser, with a high light transmission of 85-89 per cent, produces a very intense beam of light, which makes sure that even rooms with very high ceilings can be fully illuminated. Its long service life and the avoidance of light sources which require regular replacement are further reasons for its installation at difficult to reach places since maintenance is minimal.

Globe

The design of Globe floor lamp by Edoardo Colzani originates from a sphere, reinterpreted by cutting its upper and bottom parts to create a new lampshade, suitable for casting the light both upwards and downwards. The project focuses on the use of handcrafted materials and on the round shape of the lampshade, made up of one metal piece without any weld joints. Globe design focuses also on flexibility thanks to the different combinations of internal and external finishes and to the adjustable lampshade and LED bar, that can both rotate to adapt to different needs.

Mi-480

Designed as a decorative light, the Mi-480 deals with the idea of a textured skin, creating layers of transparent, translucent and opaque patterns. The gradients of light and shade that result, give the surface a sense of visual depth which changes depending upon the viewing angle. 480 pieces of acrylic, varying in size are illuminated by a single light source, located in the centre. This further helps create the illusion of a richly textured skin. Carefully placed gaps in the skin allow for rays of light to escape through, creating their own patterns onto the surroundings.

Being

The inspiration came looking strains of a fir-tree that has been cut. The strain is made to clip through from the bottom upwards, taking 100 mm of thickness at the top. After are practiced cuts along the circumference of the strain, at random, of different dimensions so as to always have different effects of light. Being is a lamp made with the use of scrap wood. It is an object of desgin of "recovery".

Einstein

Einstein Bridge: Lighting Design Concept. The bridge serves as a link between two parts of a neighborhood in the north of Tel Aviv, close to the shore. Taking inspiration from the sea, the curves and height differences along the bridge are accentuated by linear lighting. The design also includes lighting sculptures of sea creatures, shadows in the form of anchors and whale tails, and colored light that brings the sea even closer to the users. This playful narrative is all the more fitting as the bridge is located in close proximity to a school.

the most innovative point of this switch design is to enable our users clearly identify each light is controlled by which different witches. Based on the traditional switch design standard, we figure out a small slot above the switch, which can place light label. The installation is simple and practical, we just need to insert the different printed label into the different slots. There is a small hole in the notch of the label plate, users can use smaller tools to eject the label paper.
