Welcome to our first blog post as Cool Light Fixtures under Cool Lights, Cooler Stories! We are eager and excited to unveil a series of posts that highlight the coolest fixtures and to tell the story of their designs. So, we must first define a cool light fixture.
We know that the way a light looks may spark a conversation at face value, but what truly makes a light fixture cool is the content of that conversation. While how cool a fixture looks may depend on the viewer, a good story is universal.
So, in David Carroll of June 9 Design’s words, “Is it really a cool fixture if it doesn’t mean anything? The central question here is, ‘does this light fixture have value beyond aesthetics?’ A cool fixture needs to beg a question, and your answer to that question has to have a story. That’s cool.”
