‘Skyline One’ spotlights by Lieven Musschoot and Mathias Hennebel for Dark

Strongly geometric and architectural in form, Belgian lighting manufacturer’s new ‘Skyline’ spotlights, designed by Lieven Musschoot and Mathias Hennebel, proved to be a highlight (no pun intended) of the recent Kortrijk-based design biennale Interieur.

For either ceiling- or wall-mounting and available in a range of colours – strict monochrome on the outside in the form of black or white is offset by a vibrant palette for the inside, including red, blue, green and gold – the lights’ strong visual presence is due in no small part to the repeated rectangular form they employ. The fact they’re rotatable, moreover – the spots can be angled according to need – creates a satisfying degree of sameness with difference.

 

The product comes in two versions – ‘Skyline One’ and ‘Skyline Two’, with one and two spots respectively. Why make things complicated?
