Typography – Cilon Staff Wall Sconce by Rakumba

Typography – a New language in decorative lighting.

Studio Truly Truly and Rakumba have designed a lighting system of exceptional flexibility and purity of form. The system is inspired by the way characters form words, and how these can be arranged in relationships to create a language of expression.

Typography is a mix and match lighting system based around an advanced rail allowing for the complete mobility of each light.

Combining multiple rails in vertical or horizontal orientations enables Typography to be formed into endless expressions; sophisticated pendants, chandeliers, wall sconces and room dividers, almost limitless design solutions.

The Typography Cilon Floor lamp offers an unprecedented opportunity to create personalised expressions in a portable luminaire.

Typography’s first collection, CILON, consists of seven different lighting fixtures, or characters. Each light can be positioned on four sides of the central axis and can be controlled independently of any other.

Over time lights can be moved to new positions, or new lights and rails can be added. The design possibilities are almost limitless, delivering technically complex performance in a seemingly effortless way.

About the designer

Studio Truly Truly

Studio Truly Truly is a Rotterdam (Netherlands) based design studio. Founded by Australian husband and wife design team Joel Booy & Kate Booy, and operates on the interface between industry and art. They run a versatile practice, creating textiles, lighting, furniture and spatial installations.

There is a focus on designing high quality products that combine technical ingenuity with new aesthetics. This results from an urge to dive deep into the production process, to push materials and techniques to their limits.

Industrial processes are frequently combined with abstract organic details or forces of nature. In their work, the natural and unnatural are blurred or contrasted in new ways, putting their qualities in the spotlight to be consciously considered and celebrated.
