Dark Side is a range of seamless recessed wall luminaires made of plaster and concrete.
Each fixture reminds of a space object. Turning on the light makes the central part visually more spherical highlighting its relief. Use of different colors and color temperatures of LEDs coupled with different concretes and proportions gives an assortment of luminaires.
The outer space is the main theme of these luminaires. The idea is to bring the cosmic calm into the everyday bustle of modern life. Colour combinations, the interplay of light and shade, natural textures and reliefs contrasting with a flat surface produce a calming and relaxing effect. So the luminaires are especially good for recreational areas, bedrooms, lounges etc.
The project got the Platinum award in A’Design Award 2016 in the category "Lighting" and was shortlisted in Happy LED Life, competition organized by Designboom.com in collaboration with Gwangju International Design Biennale 2015.
