“RBW continues its exploration of form and material with Trig, a simple adjustable-height LED !oor lamp of anodized aluminum. Paring down the iconic tripod lamp, RBW presents Trig as part of a new series of products that is at once minimal and human. Simply touch Trig anywhere to switch it on or off.”

While our Job Well Done coverage has normally focused on one project, Insight Design Group’s prolificacy warrants a discussion on their award winning scope of work over the last few years. Working with their clients to achieve beautiful, livable spaces, the team at Insight has a portfolio that speaks to their commitment to creativity, mixing modern and traditional motifs, and designing spaces that are striking as well as unique.

Never falling into habits that render interiors formulaic or predictable, Insight Design Group keeps it fresh every time around. We’re always thrilled with their choice of lighting and we had a chance to talk to them about their design process, and where lighting fits into it all.

LIGHTFORM: Can you tell me a little bit about the story of 
Insight Design?

Insight Design Group is an Interior Design Firm that focuses on Residential, Commercial and Hospitality projects.  The firm has been involved with some of the most successful developments and projects in Vancouver and throughout Canada for over 15 years.

 LIGHTFORM: Your projects focus mostly on designing spaces 
for living, and we want to know what the most important 
considerations are when lighting living spaces.

Lighting must have a purpose, so when implementing any design, we imagine how the end users will be living, entertaining, working etc. and create the corresponding mood accordingly.  Often, a significant amount of time can be spent to ensure that the fixtures chosen are perfect. They must mesh with the concept and persona of the space and typically create that little bit of eye candy we inject into each space.

NEWS: Vibia Launches CREA at HD Expo


With the launch of CREA comes 14 new collections with 5 new modular design families. All of them easily designed through Vibia’s interactive website featuring full CRM and project management tools available through CREA.

 

When we visited Vibia at Euroluce last year, we wrote that they stole the show with the introduction of their newest modular systems that are as much art installations as they are lighting systems. Vibia’s R&D visionaires have created CREA (Create Your Project), a digital design tool featured on the Vibia website to go hand in hand with all their latest designs, but configured to work for any Vibia product.

From decorative to architectural to outdoor, almost the full spectrum of lighting is represented at the fair. The theme at Light+Building this year is energy efficiency and incorporating lighting efficiency into the broader scheme of engineering, architecture and construction. On our first day we visited the booths of Ares and Marset – two brands that never disappoint in their showings.
