Reimagining the linear suspension lights as sculptural, minimal designs.
Featuring a minimalist aesthetic, The Mile lighting collection rejuvenates the archetypal office lighting concept in a refined way. Montreal-based studio Lambert & Fils collaborated with designer Guillaume Sasseville, Creative Director of SSSVLL, to create the range. The minimalist lighting design reinterprets the functional lights as sculptural objects that also bring a familiar accent into modern interiors. Clean lines give the pendant lighting a timeless look, while the creative way the structures intersect infuse the designs with a contemporary feel. Suspended from the ceiling, the volumes create eye-catching shapes. “Two extruded bodies connect in an asymmetrical balancing act giving them the illusion of weightlessness. The invisible counterbalance inside the frame creates a tension and makes the fixture seem like it’s levitating”, says Sasseville.
To replace the classic suspension cables, the designers chose a more elegant nylon braided electric cord that also comes in various hues to complement the different colors of the lighting. Perfect for both commercial and residential interiors, the minimalist lighting design collection adds a sculptural focal point to any room. Lambert & Fils partnered with Toronto-based design store Klaus to launch the range at the Interior Design Show (IDS), which takes place between January 18 and 21, 2018. Photographs© Arseni Khamzin.
