The form moves away from a two-dimensional graphic to a sculptural, and pleasing form. My inspiration comes from asymmetry. The asymmetry is not just defined by its physical presence.

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.
The concept of One Cube – One Reflection was the source of inspiration in façade lighting of a 20-floor commercial office tower in CaoHeJing, Shanghai. With the use of specialized, 360 degree LED projectors strategically mounted at the base of each bay, the lighting design team produced a glowing lit latticework of squares, making the building’s aluminum facade appear as if it has been lit from within. A blue-lit band, positioned on the 10th floor, halves the design into 2, enhancing the concept of reflection, as the lighting effects at the top part of the building mirrors that of the bottom.

This is a place high in symbolism, aesthetic drama, sensory stimulation and taste sensations: fireworks for the senses.
