These fixtures are subtle and can be directional, and can be connected to dimmer switches to give a range of light from subtly dim to full brightness to illuminate an entire room.
In this configuration, the apartment is in the power saving mode, rotating accent spots from the ceiling are turned on as well as concealed lighting. Multimedia is available to enhance the relaxing atmosphere. This setting is ideal for recreational environment (television, books) and a digestif in the company of close friends.
It may be ugly, but you can’t deny that a wiener dog with an illuminated torso is pretty damn funny. You can have it from here for $50.
For those of us who can’t see in the dark and have a tendency to stumble around in the gloom, we (along with our stubbed toes) would be grateful to see this nicely-designed luminaire actually finding its way to the marketplace.
For high ceilings and modern décor use recessed lighting: “Can” light fixtures, so called because of the metal recessed “can” that is inserted into the ceiling and the light fixture fits inside.
Because of the way the lamp is built, the light also illuminates the glass beam, creating that delightful X-Files effect.
While in a living room, opt for a floor lamp next to a couch or favorite reading chair. In bathrooms the lighting at the mirror should be free from shadows and glaring light.
A dimmer switch would do the same thing, sure, but having two different light sources working off one another would provide some interesting room lighting. The Butterfly Light is just a concept at this time, though quite an elegant one.
