Strip - Wall Ceiling Lamp

Strip is a family of very thin wall, ceiling and suspension lamps whose modular design permits use in sequences and groupings determined by “balanced” geometry. A few basic constructive parts like the die-cast aluminium uprights, the separator sections in extruded aluminium, the housings containing the electrical components, and the diffuser screens in opaline polycarbonate, make it possible to create modular lighting objects of different sizes and luminous intensity.

Product • By TeknionBonds


Bonds takes a fresh approach to modular seating. Inspired by the concept of a Jacob’s Ladder, a toy made up of loosely bonded segments, Bonds employs a unique mechanism that connects individual units in countless configurations. The free-form design strikes a balance between playful innovation and simple functionality. The Jacob’s Ladder concept is enabled with a strap kit attachment that remains invisible until put in use. The straps are attached at the bottom corner which allows a unit to pivot at either end. The unit can be turned clockwise or counterclockwise a full 180º yet remains attached, allowing for adaptation while providing a degree of control over spur-of-the-moment repositioning by users.
