The characteristics of the XY180 family
‘XY180’ is a 3-piece lighting collection designed by OMA. The collection was inspired by a fascination with point, line and surface; key architectural elements. The floor, wall and ceiling lights are meant for individual and shared workspaces, but can also be applied to domestic and public interior spaces.
The line uses precise geometric dimensions while the base elements - which include tube lights and a spotlight in either a discreet 4,1W or a powerful 7,1W - can be combined with a hinge to generate countless lighting conditions. As individual components, each part is familiar. When assembled however, they can take on unpredictable and asymmetrical positions.
The dimmable tube lights create diffuse ambient lighting, while the spotlights provide focused lighting. By exposing the light and allowing it to pivot, the fixture becomes the main feature as it shifts into multiple configurations; a product that contributes to the creation of space, not only by the light it emits, but also by its physical presence.
