This volume introduces some of the most creative names in con-temporary lighting, from Ron Arad to Karim Rashid, and focuses on experimental uses of light in the designed environment. Featuring heat-resistant fabrics, “cool” light sources, and new materials that pulse and glow without the need for wires, the book also presents lighting we can sit on, sleep under, and even wear.
