Villa S, a cast in-situ concrete house, located in Schriesheim, southwest Germany, required a light fitting that could deliver both internal and external coverage; work within the structural parameters of its concrete ceilings; and complement the architecture’s exacting, pared-back aesthetic. Existing fittings were unable to meet these requirements hence the development of this bespoke luminaire.

The outer casing is milled from a solid block of aluminium and sits flush within the ceiling. Internally, it comprises 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 lamp that delivers an even spread of emitted light.
