Description

The idea behind the “Node” modular light fixture system was to create a sculptural lamp that also functions as the base unit of a modular system to make pendants, chandeliers, sconces, and table lamps. “Node” is constructed in a way that allows for additions or subtractions of modules in all four directions, to alter the size and shape of the fixture as desired.

The system invites play, and can be hung on a wall horizontally or vertically as a sconce; in an arc or on an angle as a pendant, or set in place as a table lamp. This adaptability makes it marketable for both private and commercial projects.

Each Node module is made of a 18”x2.5”x1.3” brushed aluminum housing with blackened steel hardware, LEDs and a flashed opal glass panel on each face. The glass panels are offset slightly from the LED strip with a metal washer, to create a soft and omnidirectional light.

The user can specify the number and orientation of Node modules they want for their fixture, and whether they want it to be hung, wall-mounted, or standing on the floor. They can also choose between two sizes of the Node module itself.
The version that is being offered here has nine Node modules configured as shown on the main photo.
Other versions and finishes are available upon request.

The body of work in this collection consists of pieces by Greek designers of the mainland and the diaspora, or international professionals who live and work in Greece. As a common theme we tackle the elusive notion of “Greekness” and how this transpires through the work of seemingly diverse and distinct individuals. In our attempt to define “Greekness”, we aim to raise questions about how this plays out in the work presented. How do Greek designers view their identity? Is it through their effort to decipher their heavy heritage? Is form important in order to achieve a predisposed classic elegance, or is a philosophical disposition towards shape more poignant? Could it be simply a resourcefulness and DIY ethic to make up for the absence of design infrastructure? How do Greek designers based abroad deal with their background? Could it be that they simply ignore it in order to finally free themselves? Is there a certain amount of innovation necessary in order to channel it into the new environment? Finally, how do foreign designers see their work influenced by their Greek surroundings? Is it the reference through the use of noble materials such as marble or the abundance of natural light that makes their work unquestionably Greek? Or could it be something else they were seeking when they decided to move here, something abstract like humour or drama? Could their arrival finally mean a departure from Greek heritage’s self-reference? The pieces that we present might seem ill-matched, but they share an important core element. They are confident in their narrative of a personal story of identity, that is either at peace or against the Greek archetype. Through this communication, they all describe a culturally mature and vibrant scene that is finally extroverted and coming of age.
