Global Lighting’s Favorite Fashion Picks from the Red Carpet


Adele at the Oscars 2013

There’s been much talk about who wore what on the Oscars red carpet since Sunday, always a hot topic the week after the Academy Awards.

I leave you today with a might-as-well-flaunt-it view of de-light-ful Secto Designs.

Their words aren’t in English but the passion these design professionals bring to their work shines through in any language, and the footage of their designs makes for a light fixture version of a Hollywood movie moment. Take a bow, Atto, Kontro, Magnum, Octo, Puncto, 4200, 4201, 4210, 4220, 4230, 4231 and Victo! And the Oscar goes to…
