This compellingly minimal collection of geometric lights takes its inspiration from transit map iconography. Round aluminum pendant shades mimic the graphic circles used to identify a subway system’s various stations, while black tube wiring recalls the different train lines that connect them. The various ceiling-mounted and pendant fixtures can be combined to form their own unique network — all served by the same transit hub–like power source. Mounted above a dining or office table, they convey a sense of flow that reflects the dynamic movement of a busy metropolis. And, unlike most cities’ transportation systems, these lights run all night.
