Vale by Caine Heintzman for ANDlight

February 2020
Halfway between industrial and sculptural object; Vale is a suspended lighting system with architectural competence. Backed by an ingenious framework, Vale’s ethereal module suspends horizontally or vertically; singularly or plurally– adapting to fathomless possibilities.
The open-ended profile explicitly reveals the technical aspects of the fixture: the lightweight aluminum frame houses the LED with a high luminous efficacy, suspension and connection system, while providing structure for both light refracting lenses.
“Dynamism, created by juxtaposing light with a wave-like contour-fuelled the initial research. Exploring scale, pitch and frequency and various materials helped settle for the most effective and interesting radiance. Focused specifically on the lens of the luminaire - the process development determined form and functionality as it needed to be lightweight and translucent, yet able to create volume.” says designer Caine Heintzman, Designer
