The toolkit features three namesake sticks, each of which rotates on its own axis, allowing light to be directed precisely where needed. The minimalist aluminum rods come in three sizes—1.5, 2, and 3 meters—and can be combined in any direction for a maximum length of 6.5 meters.
Custom compositions include ceiling to ceiling, wall to wall, floor to wall, wall to ceiling, or from the ceiling into open space. Pure and graphic, the glowing poles produce and disrupt architectural planes, facilitating endless possibilities in an interior.
Read on for inspired examples of Sticks’ personalised solutions for lighting lobbies and halls.

In a minimalist lobby, an arrangement of Sticks lines the double-height ceiling. Their rectangular outlines echo the interior’s pared-down aesthetic, while the sleek black lines provide a graphic pop against the pale walls. The installation forms a sloped silhouette overhead that reduces the room’s volume for a more intimate feel.
A spare, spacious lobby offers a quiet setting for contemplating nature through the broad windows. Against the Zen-like backdrop, a succession of Sticks is suspended from the ceiling in tidy rows of two. The luminaires’ simple, straight silhouettes lend an intriguing rhythm to the design while maintaining a soothing sensibility. Unfolding across the ceiling, the composition enhances the interior’s interplay of horizontal and vertical lines.
Sticks also illuminates a hall in an airy, modernist space. Within the subdued grey setting, three Sticks arrangements dot the open space in distinct spots lending light and visual interest. Each pairing features two sticks at an angle, creating a note of a restrained elegance amidst the understated ambiance.
