Sun Tile Decorative Lighting Solution

The Tile Lighting Concept is born from a Portuguese traditional element, the tile. Inspired by an 19th century tile facade building with bidimensional circular graphics, gave rise to a tridimensional interpretation of anthropomorphic character, through a smooth spherical surface. Tower, Horizon and Level models are designed as interior lighting elements, in vertical position, suspension or fixed to the wall. Inside, the latest led technology equiped with dimmer and optional control via Bluetooth, allows a strict control of the light source making possible to adapt to any environment.
