October Lighting Month 2018
All too often I think lighting is added as an afterthought in an interior, but for us it is completely intrinsic. When thinking of lighting in spaces where you eat, you must strike a very careful balance between illuminating properly and creating the right mood. You want to see what you are eating, but often you want your eating space to feel intimate and engaging – particularly for dinner parties.
CUT is partly influenced by 1970s lighting when there was a lot of effects created by half mirrored lamps and CUT has a kind of kaleidoscopic effect, using half-mirroring and a very strong geometrical shape. So, you are creating a whole interior world inside the lamp and then of course when it’s off you get a solid metallic looking object.
