Ikon — Angular Architectural Lighting

Ikon (we like the name) is a range of architectural lighting luminaires characterized by a sober and well-balanced design suitable for every type of situation. The rotation of the lighting module and by the many solutions available – suspended, wall-mounted, floor and projector make it a very flexible lighting solution.

Asian inspired Lanterns by the Bouroullec Brothers

Lantern has a sober but appealing shape. The compact, slightly bulbous lamp is somewhat reminiscent of a Chinese lantern. This association is underscored by its pleasantly warm, soft light.
