Sometimes, We Need Rose-Colored Glasses
Spectacle. I think it's safe to say we love it—at least I do. 2020, and to date, 2021, have been tough; there's no getting around it. While restrictions are lightening regarding our COVID confinement, still, that spectacle we all so much desire, be it a major sports event, a visit to the theater or a concert, or a sorely needed sojourn to someplace exotic, is proving, somewhat elusive. Case in point, I did score tickets to the super-cool immersive Van Gogh exhibit; the hitch is that I have to wait until mid-July! I'll just have to settle for nature's magic, as all the flowers, trees and plants are coming to life—a pretty good show in itself. In the interim, a couple examples of spectacle—one, itself, that is colorful by nature; the other by RGB. Enjoy.

Landscape Forms

Typology

A looking glass to the sky. Typology ring lights are stunning, seemingly levitating light fixtures with illumination reminiscent of the sun's corona during an eclipse. Perched atop a steel mast, a circular strip of LEDs creates a solid ring of ambient light that is recognized instantly from almost a mile away. And when viewed from underneath, the luminaires are portals to the sky, pulling the gaze upward and accentuating a vertical urban landscape. Typology ring lights are striking pieces of industrial design by day, and by night, are enchanting and ethereal pieces of luminescent art.
