Three collections were on hand for the guests to view:
REFLECTIONS( above), presented for the first time at the Interieur Biennale in Kortrijk. Reflections comprises 3 new collections, a series of new adventures in luminaire design. A mission to improve the relationships between architecture, interiors, its users and visitors. A poetic expression of craftsmanship, light, technology, texture, shape and mood. With these new collections Delta Light wants to help create the right atmosphere, so that the experience of every space is filled in a warm and unique way.
The first collaboration between Delta Light and Dean Skira resulted in launching the new product range Polesano (above) a new lighting concept designed specifically for urban settings. Polesano offers bespoke solutions for pedestrian pathway, roadway, park, square, façade or landscape settings. The concept needed to provide maximum flexibility for the designer while maintaining the same aesthetic for the entire system, regardless of the area. Polesano is a striking combination of modularity and flexibility that allows the designer to meet the specific functional and aesthetic requirements of any project. Integrating video surveillance, Wi-Fi, speakers or other Internet of Things elements is a next step in the development of Polesano.
‘XY180’ is a 3-piece lighting collection designed by OMA. A collection inspired by a fascination with point, line and surface; key architectural elements. The floor, wall and ceiling lights are meant for individual and shared workspaces but can also be applied to domestic and public interior spaces. The tube lights create diffuse ambient lighting, while the spotlights provide focused lighting. By exposing the light and allowing it to pivot, the fixture becomes the main feature as it shifts into multiple configurations; a product that contributes to the creation of space, not only by the light it emits, but also by its physical presence.
