a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Leading lighting design studio Beau McClellan is launching Fluid - a range of beautiful new pendant lights available from May 2012.
Composed of the highest quality hand-blown glass, Fluid features Beau McClellan's signature mirror-coated finish.
Available in three different sizes: small, medium and large, Fluid is the latest addition to the ever expanding product collection, originally launched in September at designjunction during the London Design Festival.
Fluid's LED is cleverly concealed within an optical, high-quality crystal which magnifies the LED to create a more powerful light. Because the crystal is hand-frosted, it readily diffuses the sometimes harsh tones of an RGB LED light, to create much softer pastel shades.
This softer light is emitted from the bottom of the pendant, while its mirror-coated finish reflects the exterior light around the space. This mirrored glass then becomes semi-transparent and exposes the light source.
As well as domestic spaces, Fluid is perfect for contract environments such as bars, hotels and restaurants. It has an anti-static coating, which helps to repel dust and makes it simple to clean wherever it is specified. Fluid has a kelvin of 2700 and provides a stronger, longer lasting light source than a traditional halogen bulb.
Fluid is available to specify as an individual pendant or to the customer's own specification as part of a modular chandelier system.
