With a towering but strikingly thin-lined frame, creative lighting expression finds a new Contour. The floor lamp version from the designers at Pablo Studio provides warm illumination without obstructing the view. Fully dimmable, the LED light source promises the equivalent of 25 years of daily use (80 percent more efficient than comparable halogens and 35 percent more efficient than CFL bulbs.) Select wood and woven fabric interiors contrast with a choice of metal finishes to add subtle surface interest and suit any number of interior settings
“Lighting is undergoing a revolution at the moment,” says Venezuelan-born designer/entrepreneur Pablo Pardo, who’s leading the disruption with the mix of cutting-edge technology and always-cool minimalism behind his signal brand Pablo. As he puts it, nowadays, “you can build smarts right into the lamp.” Internationally recognized, the San Francisco company was started 20-odd years ago and now Pablo racks up design awards regularly for its more than 40 technology-driven and elegantly sparse collections worldwide.
The lighting industry thought-leader credits his upbringing in a family of artists and engineers for the always forward-facing Pablo style, which embraces innovations such as LEDs and flat-panel light. “Lighting is also shrinking in size: LEDs are so small that you can put them almost anywhere,” he adds. “So the standard iconography of a lamp with a shade is being upended.”
