The Edo Collection is a family of decorative wall lights that hide powerful technical capabilities beneath their simple geometric forms. Taking inspiration from the materiality and simplicity of Japanese design we have named our new range Edo after the prosperous and peaceful period of history when art and culture thrived.

  • CHALLENGE
  • SOLUTION

  • Our challenge was to design a new family of decorative lighting fixtures that meet the complex and demanding needs of their environments of use. In particular, the lights needed to function on three key levels. 1. Aesthetics – the range offers a timeless design that works within contemporaneous Australian interior architecture. 2. Performance – the range provides the best quality light output with options for wet areas, dimming and control systems 3. Sustainability – the range is built within the framework of a circular economy for a long life cycle. Beyond the life of Edo, the design is fully recyclable and adaptable.

  • Edo’s clean lines and subtle curves bring a softness and sense of the familiar into an interior. With the ability to individuate the material finishes Edo can be either an introvert or extrovert. A choice of anodised or powder coated colours is offered for the exterior of the product. The internal ‘reflector’ can be spun metal, mirror and even porcelain stone. They say it’s what’s on the inside that matters and beneath Edo’s simple facade we have incorporated the latest dedicated LED technology, including lamping options suitable for wet environments and electronics that can communicate with sophisticated building control systems.

  • Edo has a timeless design, using locally sourced quality materials where possible. The design process considered both the manufacturing and installation of the product. The inherent cost of an item is its materials, production, assembly and shipping. Consideration has been given to the ease and speed of installation which is an additional cost of the product. Sustainability was the third key element for the Edo collection. The design addresses the ease of manufacture, including assembly & end of life disassembly. A company wide program to replace all packaging with environmental options has taken place.
