Drawing inspiration from the Bauhaus movement and from the sculptural works of Joan Miró and Alexander Calder, Balance consists of a pair of disc shapes suspended by twinned cables, one beneath the other, hung in perpendicular directions. The upper half of each disc is opaque machined aluminum while the lower half is a transparent acrylic lens with a frosted edge emitting a glare-free warm tone. Compositionally balanced while creating visual tension, Balance offers an arresting sculptural accent in a beautifully functional luminaire. This new luminaire utilizes Archilume’s signature characteristic of glare-free illumination employing the principle of total internal reflection optics.
