One of the most versatile fixtures, a wall luminaire serves many purposes. It can provide general room lighting, focused illumination, and, in some cases, it doubles as décor.
Elisa Talamona, lighting consultant at Italamona, selected Top by Ramos & Bassols. The lamp features a pair of concentric circles that form a focal point of LED-powered light. Its glowing epicenter pulses with a soft glow and, contained within the larger ring, lends the look of light framed within its pure geometry.
Talamona likes its “60s or 70s look” and envisions it in a kitchen, living space, or bedroom. “In its shape and design, it looks like a very clean, simple diffusing light, but elegant at the same time,” she explains.
“It gives a touch of class in any environment where it’s installed.”
Designed by Jordi Vilardell, it features two spherical forms super-imposed on one another, a simple disc design that enables wall murals in personalised arrangements. The orbs appear in silhouette like a solar eclipse casting a soft, ambient glow.
Glaser would place Puck Wall Art in a living room “because it’s the perfect backdrop for conversation areas, she says.
“It provides beautiful indirect light and blurs the line between utility and sculpture.”
“Treat it like a piece of art as the central focus with space around it to frame it,” he says.
“You can create a composition that is visually dynamic so it can be the centrepiece of a wall.”
Paddy Walshe, lighting designer and engineer at Dlight, picked Martín Azúa’s Halo, which features a simple light rod resting upon an aluminum base. Its diffuser renders the LEDs imbedded in the rod invisible, lending the lamp an ethereal look as it washes the walls in subtle illumination.
Offered with multiple light sticks, the Halo Wall lamp can be adjusted by hand into vertical, horizontal, or diagonal positions.
Walshe would position Halo in a large, double height space.
