After debuting earlier this year at Wanted Design during New York Design Week, the spherical Lightfalls sconce was one of the most outstanding lighting designs on display at the 100% Design show in London in September. Developed in collaboration with 3M Architectural Markets and New York-based designer Todd Bracher, Lightfalls uses 3M’s 99% reflective film technology to create the image of multiple LED bulbs, when in reality there is only one. It’s really an incredible concept — instead of wasting light like so many decorative sconces, one of these 15”-wide orb-like fixtures can actually stretch the light of a single LED to several fixtures.
Made in the U.S., Lightfalls is available in different finishes as a single sconce, or in a group in linear, circular, organic patterns. It is for dry, interior use only, and is available in 3000K and 4000K color temperatures, both with CRI of greater than 80. The projected average LED life is greater than 36,300 hours at 70% of lamp lumen output (L70).
