Sconfine—Lines, Spheres & Cubes from Zumtobel

“Light lines, light spheres, light cubes – objects clearly defined in terms of geometry, which can be used flexibly according to the principle of modularity. This ensures that every time new lighting units and lighting installations originate, matched to the respective room situation. Carefully composed and accurately defined details create an interplay of brightness, shadow and colours – dynamic tools for interiors addressing people’s emotions.”
- Matteo Thun

The luminaire range includes ceiling-mounted, wall-mounted and pendant luminaires. Chrome in various forms is part of the luminaire design, establishing the creative link throughout the range.

Wogg 43 Table by Jörg Boner

The arrangement of the legs on this table affords a maximum space for legroom. Due to the tangential deviation and by incorporated an enforcing core the elegant construction guarantees extraordinary stability. The shape of the legs together with the rounded corners of the table top result in a fresh and contemporary feel.
