2018 AZ Awards of Merit: Lighting Fixtures: Highwire

The ultimate testament to beautifully resolved design occurs when spectators simply gape and ask “How?” Highwire’s form consists of nothing more than individually weighted, double-sided discs strung on cables, which are in turn pulled taut. The result looks a little bit like a glowing yo-yo frozen mid-trick – a perfect laser-cut Plexiglas circle illuminated by dimmable LEDs and suspended in midair, with no visible means of securing itself to its cables or even of connecting to a power source. Up to five machined-aluminum housings can be strung together in sequence, making for strikingly graphic compositions that dazzle with their sublime simplicity.
