Project Feature: Special Lights X Thodey Design
Earlier this year we had the pleasure of being asked to supply lighting for Sydney husband & wife team Thodey Design for their small but mighty Ultimo Courtyard House project.
In collaboration with the effortless muscle over at local builders Francis Oliver, we are more than proud to be able to share this gem with you. Everything about this build embodies Australian architecture and what a great job the team did on their choice and execution of lighting styles. Having selected decorative beauties such as the Emition pendant light which marries with the linear architectural design, to the robust and industrial Axis track lighting that guide the way to the quaint courtyard where our Roger Pradier Duo outdoor lights up the exterior space. Collaborating with Architects and Designers is what drives us here at Special Lights because we love seeing how you use our products in various ways across multiple design styles.

With the Milan Design Week and Salone del Mobile 2019 wrapping up a couple of weeks ago, our Director had the pleasure of attending the event and viewing all that the design and lighting world had to offer for 2019.
Shapes and colour seemed to be the big theme this year for lighting, with Masiero paying homage to Memphis style with pops of colour on metallic forms while Bover kept their designs delicate, playful & of course nature inspired. Ideal Lux & Studio Italia Design brought their futuristic flair to the table while Ebb & Flow are set to offer us even more stunning glass and crystal options within their range. We cannot wait to show you what we have set to arrive in store in the coming months. Stay tuned!
Independent and rebellious British footwear company Ash, has recently launched their first concept store on Marylebone High Street, London.
Ash requested the help of Spanish design company Francesc Rife Studio to assist in the overall construction and branding of their new flagship store.
The custom design surrounds the whole inside space from shelves to walls, floor to ceiling providing neutral and minimalist surfaces. The Half pendant, designed by Francesc himself for Milan Iluminacion, features throughout the store and compliments the interior architecture perfectly. The pendant’s body can adjust & rotate to allow the positioning of the light to change like the phases of the moon. Delicate in detail, bold in its design, the Half pendant plays on contrast between light and dark and is available in three sizes and three colours. To learn more about this project, click here.

A minimalist design with precision manufacturing creates a pendant to be desired.
Inspired by nature’s sepal (the leaf shaped structure of flowering plants), the Sepal pendant has subtle curves, finished with black screws to contrast
natural ash timber grains. Light is dissipated evenly thanks to an injected polycarbonate shade which protects the dedicated LED. Its natural finish
transmits harmony to the space, making it a key piece in warm and relaxed spaces. Click here to view online or send us an enquiry to learn more. Designed by Jordi Jané, made in Spain.
