RAKUMBA TYPOGRAPHY LIGHTING SERIES

A new language in decorative lighting.

Typography is a graphic lighting system, the first collaboration between Rakumba and Studio Truly Truly. Typography is inspired by the way characters form words, and how these can be arranged in relationships to create a language of expression.

With the first Typography collection, Cilon, Rakumba introduces seven lighting fixtures, or characters – these form the building blocks of the system.

An advanced rail, almost impossibly thin, allows for the complete mobility of any light along the line. Each light can be positioned on four sides of the central axis and can be controlled independently of any other. Combining multiple rails in vertical or horizontal orientations enables Typography to be formed into endless expressions; wall sconces, pendants, chandeliers and room dividers, almost limitless design solutions.  And over time, lights can be moved to new positions, or new lights and rails can be added.

Rakumba Typography Cilon Disc

Typography® Cilon Disc – taken from the simple geometry of a smaller cylinder and a larger cylinder, Disc presents a complex yet pared back aesthetic. Always mounted in pairs, the light is reflected and washed across the internal curves, providing a decorative sculptural element as part of your configuration (or as we like to say, your Expression) of Rakumba’s Typography system.

Rakumba Typography Cilon Roll

Typography® Cilon Roll – taken from the simple geometry of two stacked cylinders, Roll provides general and direct illumination.

Rakumba Typography Cilon Staff

Typography® Cilon Staff – taken from the simple geometry of a cylinder, Staff exudes luxury.

Rakumba Typography Cilon Rib

Typography® Cilon Rib – taken from the simple geometry of two cylinders mounted side by side, Rib’s aesthetic is contemporary and pared back, yet also nods to Art Deco architecture.  Pure luxury.

Rakumba Typography Cilon Layer

Typography® Cilon Layer – taken from simple geometry revealing layers of cylinders, Layer provides general and direct illumination.

Rakumba Typography Cilon Mini

Typography® Cilon Mini – taken from the simple geometry of a cylinder, Mini provides general and direct illumination.

Rakumba Typography Cilon Spot

Typography® Cilon Spot – taken from the simple geometry of a cylinder, Spot is a high performance spotlight complementing the pared back decorative aesthetic of the Cilon collection.

Drawing from the artistic and harmonious collection of Typography fittings, the Rakumba Typography Floor Lamp offers an unprecedented opportunity to create endless expressions in a portable luminaire.
