NI

The brand new NI Parasol redefines lighting in a way that it can be more than a luminous object. Innovatively combining a parasol and garden torch, NI looks smart standing beside sun loungers on the poolside or other outdoor areas, from morning to night. The proprietary finger-sensing OTC (one-touch dimmer) allows users to adjust to desired lighting levels of the 3-channel lighting system at ease. NI also adopts a low voltage 12V LED driver that generates very little heat, providing an energy-efficient power supply for the system with over 2000 pieces of 0.1W LEDs.

Sky

A light fitting that seems to be floating. A slim and light disc installed a few centimeters beneath the ceiling. This is the design concept achieved by Sky. Sky creates a visual effect that makes the luminary appear to be suspended at 5cm from the ceiling, granting this light fitting a personal and different style. Due to its high performance, Sky is suitable to light from high ceilings. However, its clean and pure design allows it to be considered as a great option for lighting up any kind of interior designs wanting to transmit a minimal touch. At last, design and performance, together.

Vana

The structural systems of plants act mainly in compression and bending. In reverse we can obtain a geometry that performs well in tension. Designed as a tensile single surface, Vana is suspended from the ceiling and descends as four glowing columns of light. The geometry, tessellated into triangular segments, has been digitally grown using a cellular algorithm. Lit with LEDs from the inside, light shines through the stitched joints and lightens the space with an immersive illumination. Vana forms an iso-surface around a venation network, a cortex around an anastomosis system.

Lightscape Pavilion

Treasure Hill in Taipei is an old settlement with a vision of an artist compound. The contrast between the new and the old, villagers and the artists, creates an interesting dialogue, which can be experience by the visitors. Situated at the highest point of Treasure Hill, the Lightscape Pavilion becomes a focal point that can be seen from far away. The design concept is inspired by the traditional Chinese lantern, which is made with bamboo and paper. This pavilion is a lightweight structure, accompanied with curved resting benches and lighting.
