Entry DescriptionThe Ceto Collection is a series of luminaries that captures the essence, variation and rippling of the surface of the ocean. Each piece reflects a unique pattern, emitting a delicate luminosity, highlighting reference to the sea. The Ceto collection defines a new universal language for decorative lighting. The various configurations of the Ceto light all share a delicate balance between the organic glass elements and the machined aluminium components. Each light source appears to be simply pressed onto the supporting tube with no visible connections. This ingenious connection method takes on an organic form and gives the product an overarching lightness. This sculptural luminaire spans chandeliers, floor lamps, wall lighting, and pendant varieties, cumulating in the most extensive collection the Melbourne based studio has produced to date.
The glass element is a unique and distinctive component of the product. Each glass shade offers an individual pattern, making each piece completely individual, just like rippling on the surface of the ocean. The innovative way we have utilised the LED technology, which is all hidden with no visible fasteners.
