Geometric shapes and forms have been a popular interior design trend since the days of the early Greeks, who knew that a touch of geometry in their interiors would add structure and serenity. Today’s designers continue to embrace the potential of manmade shapes to create bright, modern interiors, with lighting systems being a favorite medium thanks to recent advances in materials and technology. From spare and simple to space-defining, these are some of the brightest examples of geometric lighting designs we’ve seen.
A system of horizontal and vertical strip lights that form illuminated grid-like structures of various complexities, Coordinates Module S delivers a powerful visual punch with the simplest of elements. Featuring an anodized champagne finish, the collection ranges from standard chandeliers of pared-down configurations to intricate systems that can be adapted for different environments of any scale.
A single graphic circle pendant, intersected by one small wire, balances in perfect harmony on a fine line, creating a delicate yet strongly arresting visual statement. Available in satin brass, graphite, nickel, or copper, Cercle et Trait’s classical simplicity brings a modern sensibility to any interior.
An intricate pattern of light and fine metals, Massimo Castagna’s system of rings casts a warm glow thanks to the play of sizes and types of illumination. Available in a variety of finishes and compositions that allow you to create a bespoke and bewitching lighting system tailored to your unique style.
An homage to “one of the simplest, cleanest shapes: the circle,” Catellani & Smith’s Sorry Giotto 3 is an unapologetically striking accent piece for any décor. Hand-crafted in Italy, close to the banks of the river Serio, near Bergamo, the lamp
features a black painted base and structure and blue, hand-painted copper rings.
If there is one piece that can instantly lift any décor’s modern mood, it is designer Arik Levy’s masterful reinterpretation of the traditional chandelier. The Wireflow Chandelier is an exercise in simplification, with glass, steel, and aluminum forged into a delicate and ethereal three-dimensional form at once reminiscent of the past and thoroughly modern.
Orion comprises simple modular lights with opposing spheres and tubes of opaque and solid polished gunmetal. Like the constellation for which it’s named, Orion’s modular lights, spheres, and tubes connect and expand horizontally and vertically, to create bespoke constellations of light with infinite adaptations.
