12 x 12

This well-honed bespoke light fitting, milled from a solid block of aluminium, illuminates Villa S, a cast in-situ concrete house, in Schriesheim, in southwest Germany.

The light unit measures 12cm x 12cm x 8cm and provides both interior and exterior coverage. Its size ensures it works within the structural parameters of the concrete ceilings. Furthermore, and in accordance with the dwelling's minimal aesthetic, the design delivers a perfectly flush finish when recessed; there is no external mounting or trim, so maximising the ascetic clarity of the cast in-situ concrete.

12 x 12 comprises a grid configuration of 49 1W LEDs mounted on a platina plate, combined with a highly polished stainless steel reflector and a specially satinized plexi-glass cover. The result is a low energy, high performance light fitting that delivers an even spread of emitted light.
