This outdoor-worthy hollow rectangal of light is called the Frame. The white aluminum light’s diffuser is made from pressed glass, which intensely illuminates the interior space while softly and asymmetrically brightening the areas surrounding the lamp. Take the Frame outdoor, designed by Mario Ruiz, from floor to table to any flat-surface perch—it is available in three different sizes: small, medium and large.

A fascination with an object’s outer skin is a hallmark of Spanish designer Mario Ruiz’s sensibilities. The graduate of Elisava School of Design in Barcelona founded his own studio in 1995 to concentrate on product design. That focus has broadened during the past two decades, taking him into the realms of technology, furniture, lighting, office equipment, applied graphics and brand identity. He has also practiced interior design and interior architecture. Being a technician has helped Ruiz to keep his focus clear because the technique behind a design is always top of mind. This makes him a favorite with manufacturers who aim to produce timeless products relevant for a modern marketplace.
Though Ruiz and his design team are perhaps best known in the office furniture market, he’s produced a number of products suitable for other environments, including lighting fixtures for Global Lighting collaborator B.lux, for whom he designed the Frame, the Wall and the 3G. Other standouts in his portfolio include the Flat collection of outdoor furniture for Gandía Blasco; the Panamá and Tequila lighting designs for Metalarte; the Deck sofa for Joquer; the Fuori bench for Viccarbe; the new Domo phone for Telefónica, manufactured by Siemens; and the M-270 coffee maker for Moka. He’s received a variety of awards, including the Red Dot, the IF, the Design Plus, the Wallpaper Awards 08 and the ADI-FAD Silver Delta. We're betting he's poised for more.
