Designed by Martín Azúa, the LED-powered Dots collection delivers outsized impact in the form of diminutive cylinders. Its namesake circular shapes trace individual points of light along a wall in a glowing melody that evokes a composition of musical notes in concert with another.
Azúa’s inspiration derived from the idea of a planetarium. His early sketches for the collection—circular shapes drawn on a dark wall— resembled an interstellar galaxy, a concept he developed with Dots. With its landscape of beams and halos, the sconces create an intimate, illuminated universe that connects a space.
Azúa also aimed for diversity with Dots, producing a versatile lighting system available in four versions. Each features a unique cone cutout that generates endless effects ranging from a spotlight to a perimeter halo. Deployed alone like a sparkling jewel or in a group like a glowing galaxy, his design represents a departure from staid sconces with its fresh, playful feel that encourages experimentation.
Another departure from standard wall lamps is Dots’ choice of materials and finishes. It comes in solid wood or a range of lacquered finishes to further distinguish the simple forms, while providing additional personalised features.
