Concept

LP Capsule is characterised by a high degree of integration between the design elements. The fixture elegantly encircles the post for a more coherent solution. Viewed from above, the light consists of two circles – a large round lamp and a smaller round post where the tangents connect the two circles to form a simple geometric harmonious look. The basic idea was to create a cylindrical capsule, with the light source inside a single cylinder, which is in turn inside a larger opal cylinder. This is the source of the direct downward light, but by creating distance between the inner and outer cylinders, the fixture shines surplus light into the gap. Here it is reflected, illuminating the outer cylinder, which glows like a halo around the light source in the middle. This reduces glare and provides a smoother transition to the surrounding environment.
