Geometry: the Angle
Clean, sharp, and definitive, angles formed by lighting elements, glass, veneers, and other mediums define space, direct focus, spark interest, add a dynamic, enhance aesthetics, and provide a service in IA designs.
A narrow light embedded in the ceiling and reflected in the finish of the floor runs from reception to the servery, makes a right angle, continues to the wall, and descends to the floor.
A quadrilateral-shaped light fixture suspended from the ceiling adds interest.
Inspired by the lines and angles of a ship and accented with embedded light, the reception desk at Virgin Cruises Headquarters extends the length of the floor then turns and continues into the café.
Thin embedded lights running the length of the ceiling echo the multiple angles of the striking reception desk and glass fins on the left.
A triangular stretch-fabric LED backlit “skylight” enhances the atmosphere at The John Buck Company Conference Center.
The conference center design uses high-end finishes and furniture to reflect the signature, angular geometry of the building lobby.
A slanted glass wall, with a custom pattern inspired by the slant of the CNA logo, creates a striking floor-to-ceiling quadrilateral.
Descending into triangles, canopies provide shade for an outdoor amenity at Red Hat.
