“A slit of light in a monolithic mass: Ara is the contrast between the material and the immaterial that is the basis of every lighting project.”
Ilaria Marelli’s description of the Ara as a “slit of light in a monolithic mass” is a great window into the inspiration employed by Marelli when she set out to create the sleek and commanding Ara. Its body is made of die-cast aluminium, with a rotatable diffuser in Pyrex or polycarbonate in an option of a champagne, anthracite, grey or white.
Loved in both its forms as a wall and a floor lamp, it is recognized immediately as a piece that lends itself to many different aesthetics, making it one of the most versatile and dynamic lights in production today.

Living in a warehouse converted into a loft is probably up there in most of our dream living situations. Throw in a complete interior remodel and design by Sharon Halpin of Fruition Design and you have what Western Living Condo has coined, “one man’s personal Shangri-la”. As the cover feature in this month’s issue of Condo, Halpin transformed a 1,400 square foot space into a striking modern residence. She exercised careful consideration and her timeless good taste to provide her client with a beautifully balanced, opulent home.
As someone who understands the integral value of lighting, we wanted to know how she went about constructing the perfect mood for this intriguing space.

Like most good things, it was available in Europe first, but the Plumen 001 is now available in 120V for North America and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Maybe not all of us will openly admit it, but design enthusiasts everywhere shuddered at the thought of having to replace aesthetically pleasing incandescent bulbs in their many shape variations with their slightly tacky, energy efficient counterpart – the compact fluorescent.
