Werner Aisslinger designed the Cone Light wall fixture, made of vitrified translucent porcelain, for B.lux. The copper fittings serve as a warm compliment to the texturized matte surface of the shade in snowy white, which emits a soft glow due to the luminescence of the material. The dexterity with which Aisslinger designed the bar connecting the shade to the stem that extends to the wall—a clean configuration of half porcelain and half copper—infuses this wall light with its LED light source a serious design statement.

If you ask Werner Aisslinger about the future of design, he will tell you the stylish minimalism of the last decade, with its innovation based purely upon shape, will morph into a sophisticated use of new materials and technologies. “Historically exciting, visionary and pioneering designs have always rested on the transformation of materials and technology into a new context,” says the winner of the 2014 A&W (Architektur & Wohnen) Designer of the Year Award.
We would expect nothing less of the Berlin-based visionary, who created the Tree Series for Spanish manufacturer B.lux, which Global Lighting distributes in North America, because innovation based upon form and the use of new materials has always been a prominent hallmark of the designer’s career. The avant-garde application of materials, such as polyurethane foam, is another move Aisslinger is known to make. This pioneer of furniture design has collaborated with a number of lauded brands, including Capellini, Porro and Vitra. Many of his designs have garnered prestigious awards, such as the A&W nod, the Compasso d’Oro in Milan, and a Red Dot Award.
I am excited to discover the Cone Wall Light designed by Werner Aisslinger. The simple, cone-shaped classic is updated and interesting with the addition of copper fittings. This light would be stunning used anywhere library lighting is needed, but something more unique and sculptural is desired. The milky white translucent porcelain is sure to give a soft glow wherever it is installed, be it bedside for nighttime reading, over bookcases in a library or at the top of a tiled wall in a kitchen. This light would be perfect anywhere you desire to wash a wall in soft lighting. The LED light source is an added benefit to this already stellar design.
