Light + Building 2012 Frankfurt – Gaudi by Claesson Koivisto Rune for Fagerhult

July 30th, 2012 by retail design blog

Gaudi is inspired by classical architectural principles and LED technology. Formulated during an unusual brain storming session folding paper designers Claesson, Koivisto, Rune (CKR) created a luminaire without sharp corners with a graceful yet distinctive sculptural arc which pays tribute to the Spanish architect Gaudi’s signature structures.

Fagerhult’s Art of Light range has evolved by giving leading designers the creative licence to work with the latest lighting technology to develop new, innovative luminaire solutions. When developing Gaudi CKR chose to combine the possibilities of LED’s with the market leading T5 light source.

The emergence of LED’s has helped revolutionise luminaire design, primarily due to the minimal dimensions. The light source additionally has an extremely long lifespan and high efficiency which complements the economical and environmentally conscious characteristics of the T5.  

Gaudi is available in a linear and circular variation; both are equipped LED’s while a selection of the linear designs utilises the T5 light source. The longer version of the linear model operates with two T5 lamps and measures 3 m in length; an ideal solution for environments which demand a discrete solution with a touch a character. All models are available in black or white structured finish.
