“The Landmark Roof light, is inspired by signs found along roads which usually indicate milage and underground gas conduct trails. The Landmark Cone light takes its shape from the well known windsock, a simple textile tube on a pole, used to indicate wind direction. In low winds the wind sock droops and in high wind it floats horizontally, hence the articulated top of the light.”

Polyester coating is a surface treatment the young Belgian designer Sylvain Willenz has been using for several of his projects.

Candy exploits the potential of steel reinforcement bars for concrete structures. Thanks to a simple industrial coating process normally used in the marine industry, the unattractive steel bars are given a new and seducing identity. A high gloss polyester coating, applied to the textured bars gives off a multitude of highly bright reflections.
