The low energy light bulb serves two functions. It emits a warm ambient glow, and at the same time provides a downward spotlight. The warm soft glow compliments the space, and the LED’s ensure that tasks such as reading, or writing are sufficiently lit.

Tubular Living

We’ve taken a step back to 2015 to see what the future of vertical living could hold.  Lane Crawford invited the Peoples Architecture Office (PAO) to create installations to celebrate their 165th anniversary.  PAO responded offering living spaces within steel ventilation shafts.
