Terence Woodgate – Solid Lights

New Lighting range from design legend

Solid Lights by Terence Woodgate feature LED pendants and surface mounted downlights in natural materials such as Carrara and Nero Marquina marble, oak and walnut. The collection is optimised for MEGAMANĀ® high lumen output LED lamps, with excellent glare control for comfort. Solid is designed with effective thermal cooling for LED performance and longevity.

The design of Solid Lights means low glare and a direct even beam of light

A design feature that appeals to us is a unique support design which enables the fitting on the pendant version to be adjusted so that it hangs completely vertical and true.

With the ceiling mounted version all the fittings are hidden and a small shadow gap between the ceiling and shade allows for lamp cooling.

As marble and wood is a natural material the hue and veining will vary from piece to piece, making each shade body unique. You can get a cylinder or cone version in both the ceiling and pendant versions of Solid light.

As with all of Woodgate’s design’s everything is considered and designed with a purpose. Even the packaging is so cool – we love it!

The Solid lighting range is perfect for home use and would also look great in a bar, restaurant or more commercial environment.

Currently in the design stages but hopefully available soon the Megaman bulbs will be available with a chip included in the fitting and an app for your phone so you can control the levels of lighting, turn on/off with the touch of a button on your phone – exciting.

Solid Lights are now available too buy online from our shop.

Punt – Brand In Focus

Punt are a Spanish company who were formerly known as Punt Mobles. Their wide range of products are inspiring and unique.

Established in the 1980’s Punt‘s product range has grown and now includes some truly stunning designs. Over the years they have worked with designers such as Marc Krusin, Terence Woodgate, Vicent Martinez and many more.

Their longest standing design is Literatura. A storage system available in many configurations and colours. The ingenious element of this design is the way the front storage operates on a runner that slides along the system – therefore hiding tvs for example behind it and doubling the storage space. The first storage system to use the ladder system making the configuration unique to the user – Literatura is a true Design Classic. At Salone 2014 they are launching a new open Literatura range – can’t wait to see it.

New for 2014 – Literatura open and Breda chairs
