The Dots Collection: An Exploration of Lighting Effects

5th May, 2021

Designed by Martín Azúa, the Dots collection is defined by distinctive, glowing cylinders that trace individual points of light across the wall like an illuminated universe. Connecting a space with its intimate landscape of beams and halos, the diminutive circles create a melody of light that evokes a composition of musical notes.

The unique lighting system offers personalised functionality in four different formats. Each version features a unique cone cutout that generates myriad lighting effects, ranging from a spotlight to a halo. Deployed alone or in a group like a glowing galaxy, its fresh, playful feel allows endless exploration and experimentation in one lighting collection.

The Dots reading light provides a focused beam ideal for relaxing with a book or putting an accent on an element in the space. It features an adjustable, 360-degree turn functionality and offers the choice of an on/off switch on the back plate.

The directional lamp also has an adjustable, 360-degree turn mechanism. This sconce produces graphic lighting effects via a cone-shaped beam that washes the wall in artful, geometric compositions.

In addition, the Dots collection includes two indirect lights. The perimeter version resembles a glowing halo that bathes the background in a soft circle of light. These lamps have an abstract look that lends itself to unexpected spots in an interior, especially when used in combination.

The second indirect lamp features a graceful concave silhouette that recalls the appearance of a moon. Light is reflected within the sculptural form, generating a diffuse glow. The wall sconce can direct light upwards or down as needed.

Dots is a simple, versatile lighting system that offers many solutions in one collection,” explains Azúa. “If we forget the idea that wall lamps are boring, we can suddenly start playing with material, colours, and lighting effects in a group or individually to create comfortable atmospheres.”
