‘Cir­cus’ light:

HOME Magazine NZ - - Design Awards 2017 - By Scott Brid­gens, Si­mon James and Francesca Cut­field for Res­i­dent

“‘Cir­cus’ is a re­mark­able sys­tem of in­ter­con­nected rings that can be ar­ranged in se­quence to cre­ate a strik­ing ver­ti­cal dec­o­ra­tion,” says Si­mon James. The de­sign evolved from ex­plor­ing new op­por­tu­ni­ties af­forded by LED light­ing, in par­tic­u­lar the safe shar­ing of a low-volt­age power sup­ply be­tween ob­jects. “We con­sider the abil­ity to use a plug-and-play sys­tem to build lights of dif­fer­ent scales to suit dif­fer­ent spa­ces as revo­lu­tion­ary. It gives the user a fun­da­men­tally new prod­uct option – they’ve never had such free­dom.” Each brass ring projects an ele­gantly dif­fused LED light out­wards to a 360-de­gree plane. The the­atri­cal sys­tem ap­plies to com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial en­vi­ron­ments and its two sizes (500mm and 750mm) can be com­bined. From $4700 si­mon­james­de­sign.com
