The design of Lightyears lamps is created in reference to challenge the way we think, develop, and understand light. Light is a premise of life; whether it involves life in a greater aspect, or more concrete, the light in the individual’s home. Therefore, it’s natural to make demands of the light and lamps we choose to surround ourselves with. To Lightyears, the term innovation is not just an empty phrase, but a mantra that characterizes their selection. It is Lightyears’ vision to expand the understanding of functional and aesthetic lighting.
