J. HILL's Standard Explores the Intersection of Illumination and Crystalware

The glassware brand branches out into lighting with stellar results.

The glassware brand branches out into lighting with stellar results.

In design, first impressions are everything, and J. HILL’s Standard foray into lighting leaves a deep one.

After four years of focusing on crafting usable, accessible, and innovative crystalware, the brand has applied its successful framework to its Secant Collection. First seen at Salone del Mobile 2016, Secant Collection’s four pieces—a floor, desk, and wall light, and a hanging mobile—all come from the mind of designer Daniel Rybakken.

“The Secant project is about visual and semiotic contrast,” Rybakken says. “The glass disc communicates something pure, fragile, and elevated in value, whilst the machined aluminium parts and pulley communicate the industrial.”

The first special collection from J. HILL’s Standard, Secant is as good an example of company’s commitment to exploring the functional and decorative evolution of glass as one could imagine. Rybakken’s simplicity breeds elegance. His minimal design is chameleonic, appropriate for all settings. It’s an approach that has garnered pieces from the collection accolades, including The Bo Bedre Design Award for 2016 Lamp of The Year and a Wallpaper Design Award for 2017.

So, where will you put yours?
