This tubular pendant fixture from the °bloc lighting system comes in many different finishes: natural, brass and (dark)bronze anodised aluminum. That is, besides the classic black and white.
It is a spotlight with beam angles of 30°, 45° or 60°.
Further, a monopoint of this pendant fixture is available as well.
The °bloc system invites to combine several natural materials such as marble, oak, walnut, brass and different finishes of anodised aluminum. These can all be matched according to your interior.
We noticed that in the lighting industry, the colors black and white dominate, certainly for linear lighting. This inspired us to create an alternative.
We did not want to limit ourselves to using just one single material, we wanted to push the boundaries and explore the use of diverse materials.
A sleek design, easy to install, modular and without visible fastening elements.
On the other hand, to transfer the electricity to the light fittings easily, a standard track was chosen. You can attach the blocks to it with clips. The biggest challenge was to align the various materials, each with their unique characteristics.
It was important for us to work with authentic, qualitative materials – no imitations. Also, to source locally.
The seemingly simple form conceals complexity and refinement. Milling of marble components is done with utmost precision at a standard you’d usually expect from metalworks. It took us 2,5 years to release this intricate piece of lighting design into the world. And not to forget, a collaboration with over ten different suppliers and exceptional craftsmanship.
With Bloc, we have pioneered a solution that creates the freedom to combine diverse luxurious materials in a high-end linear lighting design.
