Up & Top Fancy Shape, iF Design Award 2022
Like the line that separates heaven and earth, Up – designed by Rubén Saldaña, Arkoslight product manager – marks a horizon in space. Its light, projected vertically, evokes a natural glow that penetrates the room. The luminaire bathes the ceiling plane directly, while the environment is illuminated with a comfortable indirect light.
Up stands as a noble piece, a whole made of a single material. With its pronounced slenderness, it elegantly holds a light plate so that the light emanates from. This floor lamp is a rational and sober sculpture, crowned by a luminous aura. Its cylindrical body combines harmony and visual serenity that is transmitted around it.
About Top Fancy Shape
Top Fancy Shape is a small downlight which can be distributed with complete freedom throughout the space by creating patterns and designs originating from a surface-mounted base. Top Fancy Shape is the only light available on the market which allows for a full light installation to be created from a single light source for spaces in which concealed lights are impossible. The cable can be moved along the ceiling thanks to small pistons which create vertices in the shape of the cable. The layout of these points can be freely chosen and designed by the user.
Top Fancy Shape achieves a subtle and minimalist aesthetic with pure lines which seemingly levitate delicately a few centimetres from the ceiling and which can be paired with cylindrical wall lamps. It is available with three different base sizes (depending on the number of units per base) and can be combined with pendant lights from Arkoslight’s Fancy Shape collection.
