Real Estate, fashion, architecture and data. What does Masayoshi Son, Adam Neumann and Miguel McKelvey see what traditional offices miss? The case of the collaboration space designed by the fashion star Adam Kimmel at the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco.
This post somehow got incepted and talked about and even written on the plane. Call this serendipity, but light fixtures created by Dan Vakhrameyev and Kateryna Fedorenko have a great load of air in them. No surprise that some of our readers see this post in an airport or perhaps even aboard above the Arabian Gulf.
We got in touch with the duo from Kiev — The Fild — and asked them to tell Light Intelligence about their light fittings.
Dan, Salvador Dali International University Alumni, has started The Fild in 2012. Path to lighting trailed through successful collaborations in the world of fashion and graphic design, when Kateryna Fedorenko and Dan have joined forces. Kateryna has before successfully founded a fashion brand L’UVE and brought with her unique fashion vision.
Their collection Sustainable Origins (SO) consists of eight objects. As Kateryna describes it “Light is simply one of the necessary decorative elements of interior design. We have just expressed the ideas that visited us!” Designers describe their style as clean minimalism and seek inspiration in graphic design. Texture is a key, and to metaphysical light, they add wood and metal.
Dan and Kateryna meticulously select their suppliers and demand only the best quality of LED light sources and gears. Impossible to miss, textile cords that match the color of wooden base, are a sign of good taste.
We loved the suspended linear fixture SO8. A sheet of metal lovingly wraps around the wooden base and leaves an opening just enough for the right amount of light to pour. We won’t be too much far off if we predict this fixture would even meet EN standards for glare control!
Pardon the pun, but there may be a new filed of science happening here. Aetherophosology, we shall call it, with a great load of light in the air.
