Curator’s note: Drawing inspiration from the Brooklyn Bridge this metal lighting creation with a metallized effect is an impact piece for any kind of dining interior. The Baristas Lightbridge with the aesthetic signature of Roumelight lighting brand combines ingeniously a pendant and a bar, magnetizing the eye at once.
The pillars of the bridge are detachable and made of iron bars while the lower part of the deck of the bridge is made of wire mesh, thus giving a more industrial style to the luminaire. The bearing deck is made of rhombus-engraved acrylic glass in order to create a pleasant feeling from below and illuminate, at the same time, the bottles placed on top.
The colour of the emitting light is warm white. In addition, dimmable lighting can be used while there is possibility of separate function of spot light (downlight) and deck lighting. Special recesses for hanging columns have been provided as well as storage of cups and low glasses.
➞ Technical support for assembling or hanging the lighting work is recommended.
The Baristas Lightbridge from the Roumelight lighting collection, with its boldly sculptural cast brass form and a sensual dose of warm white mystic lighting, blurs the line between contemporary light art and functional décor, challenging all senses.
