'We are the only company to offer this kind of dual purpose light with such streamlined and minimalistic form, and we are thrilled to be able to share Curio’s new product line for the first time at NY NOW,' said Walter Wu, CEO of Curio Design.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2014
Curio Design, a new company redefining the living space through an emphasis on emerging technologies and contemporary design, is debuting four new LED and Bluetooth-enabled lighting designs - Structo, Hype, Hype Triple, and SuperLight - at NY NOW, taking place at the Javits Center, aisle 3900, booth 3928, August 17 – 20.
Giving new life to a mature technology, Curio has evolved the light pipe from its traditional use in scanners and copiers, into a precise optical instrument that provides linear light form never before seen in the general lighting industry. A featured attraction in all of Curio’s lights, the light pipe technology revolutionizes LED lighting by providing a cleaner, more aesthetically pleasing light distribution that is free of glare and multiple shadowing.
Further combining form with function, all of Curio’s lighting fixtures also feature Bluetooth wireless connectivity, allowing users the ease of dimming lighting levels remotely and customizing light settings to a personal taste, through a free downloadable app.
“With an emphasis on quality of light and user experience, our focus is on the creation of new, interesting and beautiful lighting products,” said Walter Wu, CEO of Curio Design. “We are the only company to offer this kind of dual purpose light with such streamlined and minimalistic form, and we are thrilled to be able to share Curio’s new product line for the first time at NY NOW.”
Curio has worked with top lighting designers Peter Stathis, Matthew Boyko, Naty Moskovich and Iddo Zimmermann to create a unique design flair that stands on its own. The lights are available in varying sizes from desk top to standing, and feature seven standout colors – black, white, blue, green, yellow, orange, and pink. Curio’s new lighting designs include:
- STRUCTO: Designed by Naty Moskovich and Iddo Zimmermann, Structo eliminates complicated mechanical knuckles and joints to showcase Curio’s patented light pipe technology and method;
- HYPE: Designed by Naty Moskovich, Hype’s effortless mobility encourages playful interaction alongside unique functionality. The thoughtful combination of flexible and rigid materials enables dynamic motion while retaining shape and form at all times;
- HYPE TRIPLE: Designed by Naty Moskovich, the Hype Triple takes the role of showpiece. Shifting from Curio’s linear design aesthetic, Hype Triple is transformed into a distinctive three-dimensional object. Also featuring Curio’s 90/10 light guide technology, Triple functions as both central light source as well as providing upward ambient light;
- SUPERLIGHT: Designed by Peter Stathis and Matthew Boyko, SuperLight balances the performance demands of both workplace and home with a combination of innovative aesthetic form and technical function. Uninhibited in its range of motion, the gravity-defying design achieves fluid, sweeping movement in every direction, positioning light precisely where it’s needed in any environment.
The entire Curio collection will be available for purchase this November 2014. Pricing of the Structo, starts at $250; Hype, starts at $270; Hype Triple, starts at $420, and SuperLight, starts at $360 (prices increase based on the size of the lamp).
