Drawn to light

Understanding the context of use is a critical step in the design process for Sam Hecht and Kim Colin. For the design of their Ode Lamp, the designers considered the instinctive attraction people feel toward light.

Appealing to this natural tendency, Hecht and Colin created a family of occasional lighting that casts a warm and welcoming sphere of illumination, inviting people to come together and engage with one another in meaningful ways.

“Ode helps define space in a comfortable way.”
