Light and Magic

by

Check out this edition of Design Gossip.  Rob Forbes, founder of Design Within Reach, explores lighting “design” in nature and in the built environment.  His photo essay is beautiful, and I like his willingness to explore the idea that “one of lighting’s other tasks might be to rekindle our interest in the character, magic, and elusive nature of light itself. The better designers do this unwittingly I believe. The perforations in the dome of Castiglioni’s Arco could have derived from seeing sunlight spots on people or on forms just as I witnessed in that café on Mallorca … I’m treated to a light exhibition every morning from my apartment in San Francisco. The more dramatic and colorful lightscape is perhaps the more seductive, but I’m partial to the other one. I see the lights on the buildings and the headlights from the cars and the neon café signage and it make me realize that lighting is all around us in its magical form, if we choose to see it.”

SR Hughes invites you to explore the ideas behind all the creative solutions that exist in lighting your environment.  Why not begin with a thoughtfully conceived building that invites light inside to live with you?  We’re constantly in search of innovative decorative lighting to help our clients complete environments that embrace “the character, magic, and elusive nature of light itself.”
