Designer Saleem Khattak combines his fascination with light and modernist form in Archilume, a luminaire that evokes the best qualities of incandescent lighting: warmth, comfort and intimacy. Archilume’s unassuming simplicity masks a visionary design that transforms energy-efficient LED lighting. A clear cylindrical lens with a conical diffuser emits an elegant glow without the glare of a visible light source. It radiates a gentle light, evoking ripples on water, and represents a revolution in the use of LEDs.
A study in the science of lighting, Archilume uses the principles of light transmission, reflection and diffusion to create a sleek, sculptural form suitable for modern or heritage-style interiors. The transparency of the fixture’s design suits it to a variety of design palettes.
These dimmable luminaires are intended for illumination at counter and bar areas, or in clustered formations as chandeliers in entrances, lounges and dining areas. Archilume is available in multiple configurations.
