I can't get enough of the contemporary European light fixtures brought to North America by Global Lighting, a Mount Vernon-based manufacturer and distributor of aesthetically beautiful light fixtures sourced from across the pond! I've been watching as one of their hottest brands, LZF, gets an uncanny amount of buzz, such as this mention of the Totem on Interiors and Sources. The Valencia, Spain-based company's products are handcrafted of Poplar; the company's attention to detail one of the things lending them that lovely artisanal quality that shines through. Poplar is a sustainable wood and the fixtures are tinted with vegetable dyes, then fashioned into classically restrained styles or intertwined into alluring labyrinthine shapes. The remarkable fluidness of fixtures, like the Totem, make their products perfect for building walls of light or vignettes in commercial settings. Wouldn't you agree this company's form and function are fabulous?
