For the Love of Lights

Light is transformative. Use it to tell stories, create ambience, and nurture wellbeing. With a passion for lighting, GUBI’s collection balances the functional with the aesthetic. In today’s interiors, lamps as sculptural design objects can serve as an anchor for spaces that embody a sense of personal identity.

The art of lighting has been used to create an atmosphere and to reinforce the unique narrative of our homes for as long as we’ve been building them. Light is essential to life and wellbeing, surrounding us as we move through moments in time.

Interacting with architecture, light can transform space and shape objects, drawing attention and focus to fascinating details that might otherwise be overlooked. Light can emphasize features, provide highlights through contrast, and bring depth and life to a space. Light is one of the most powerful devices in the armory of architects and interior designers, who use it to sculpt spaces, create atmospheres and alter moods.

“Where there is light, there must be shadow, where there is shadow, there must be light.”

The genius of
the lamp 

While there is light in the abstract sense, there is also the physical lighting source. Designing lighting is not just about creating beautiful, functional objects, but also about anticipating their use and presence. Every light must have a dual function: a fixture that provides the perfect lighting for an elegant dining table or a cozy reading nook must also be inviting when turned off. The lamp itself, in addition to the light it emits, is a statement, a sculptural and design element that helps blend the interior into one cohesive experience.

Sculptural showstoppers

In daylight, GUBI’s sculptural lighting installations cast poetic silhouettes in light and shade, forming the sort of space-defining sculptures usually reserved for art galleries. As the sun sets, watch those lengthen and usher in a whole new ambience, before the lamps are switched on and generate yet another atmosphere and story created through light.

Whether on or off, lamps take center-stage, providing so much more than merely illumination. They create beauty and intrigue within a space, making a powerful statement.

From song to symphony

In music, samples and synths are layered over new sounds to create depth and creative expression. In fashion, layering involves putting together a unique combination of garments to express a distinct identity or creating new looks by remixing existing items. 

Think about lighting schemes in layers too. Considering directional task lighting, accent lighting and sculptural lamps that make a statement, enables a lighting scheme to create different moods for different needs. In this way, the layers come together in a symphony of light.
