Typography series by Rakumba x Studio Truly Truly

June 4, 2018

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.


Typography Cilon Disc - taken from the simple geometry of a smaller cylinder and a larger cylinder, Disc presents a complex yet pared back aesthetic. 


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


Typography Cilon Roll


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.


Typography Cilon Staff


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


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.
