Decorative Lighting Solution

INSPIRATION:
The "Sun" tile design, inspired by an 19Th century tile facade building that exists in Lisbon with bidimensional circular graphics, now gave rise to a tridimensional interpretation of anthropomorphic character, through the asymmetric development of a smooth spherical surface. From this dialogue, emerged the Tile Lighting concept, coated with the author tile "Sun" founded by one of the essential aspects of ceramics, such as, their appetite to capture and spread the light through a glass surface.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Tile Lighting concept, born from a Portuguese traditional element, the Tile, is mostly associated with the coating of interior and exterior surfaces in architecture as a decorative element. Tower, Horizon and Level models are designed as interior lighting elements, either by its vertical positioning (Tower), by suspension (Horizon) or even by the possibility of fixing it to the wall (Level). Inside, the latest led technology, allows a strict control of the light source in any environment.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The latest led technology, equiped with dimmer and optional control via bluetooth, allows a strict control of the light source making possible to the indoor direct lighting free standing device adapt to any indoor environment.
