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?
