We conceived this piece as an alternative to the wan fluorescent lighting that workplaces have suffered through in the past. Because one of our core beliefs is the power of light to improve mood and productivity, we designed Queue to exude warmth; we fine-tuned its color temperature to offset the glare of the modern computer screen, and emphasized the beauty of its materials.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Queue is a linear LED pendant system with limitless potential, designed for flexible installation and an inviting presence. These 44-inch, 2300-lumen modular bars of light connect via linear sliding joints and hang from stainless steel wire loops, allowing for custom compositions tailored to the needs of the space. Units can be oriented either upwards or downwards in order to cast respective soft or direct lighting.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Queue is a linear LED pendant system designed for flexible installation and an inviting presence. These 44-inch modular bars of light connect via linear sliding joints and hang from stainless steel wire loops, allowing for custom compositions tailored to the needs of the space. Units can be oriented either upwards or downwards in order to cast respective soft or direct lighting. Originally conceived as an answer to the monotony of workplace systems, Queue exudes a welcoming light and rich beauty in the subtle, rounded facets of its surface. Ultimately, the finished product goes as well in a bar or dining room as it does in the office.
