Entry DescriptionWings is a re-think of linear direct/indirect luminaries, focusing on sustainability and functionality. Its soft angular body is created with sewn recyclable material. On the topside is a reflective polyethylene film reflector that has a hole pattern allowing about 50% of the light to exit in a wide throw pattern, delivering exceptional ceiling uniformity. The remaining light is reflected towards a flexible polypropylene diffuser to produce fully diffused and glare free direct illumination. In the flexible fabric shade, we suspend a single indirect LED strip with batwing primary optic that provides light for both the direct and indirect illumination, while reducing electronics and wires.
Sustainability ApproachSustainability and a reduced carbon footprint is at the forefront of the design. A lightweight and fully recyclable Wings ships flat yet is fully assembled. When suspended gravity pops open the slim prismatic form. All unnecessary components have been stripped away, and with a focus on better and less materials, shipping impact is reduced by up to 66% of typical linear pendants.
