Stem Ray Light
Japan’s leading lighting company, Yamagiwa, has collaborated extensively with architects and designers to produce original light fittings. They invited us to help them develop a concept that treats light as a raw material, rather than simply design an object that ‘lights up’.
The rubberized flexible stem allows light to be targeted in any direction and is fitted with an LED specifically developed by Yamagiwa’s technicians. Because LEDs do not generate heat, the light source can be recessed 20mm into the stem, eliminating glare. The zinc tripod base is inspired by the form of concrete sea defences.
In 2010 the Stem Ray Light won a Red Dot Award (distinction)
