The standing Axis light is a modular lighting fixture that relies on its precise angles to maintain balance. The brushed brass connector holds each dimmable LED bulb in place while the handmade end caps keep the piece visually balanced. The seemingly random placement of the bulbs makes the fixture appear to be in completely different configurations, depending on the angle, creating nearly limitless visual geometries. One can rotate the bulbs to adjust the direction of the lighting to create different atmospheres.
Thislexik is a contemporary furniture design studio that pushes the boundaries of how conventional materials are used. They flip the concept of form-based design on its head, working at the intersection of aesthetics, science, and humor.
Founded in 2014 by multidisciplinary industrial designer Vedat Ulgen, Thislexik focuses on designing and producing high-quality handmade home goods and furniture that are unique and oftentimes conceptual, without sacrificing functionality. Thislexik approaches design with a loud and deliberate aesthetic, providing an environment to realize the unmade and unseen without boundaries or subtlety.
Because they are committed to ecologically responsible and intelligent methods, Thislexik believes that what they create is just as important as where they create it. Located inside of five reclaimed shipping containers in the heart of Red Hook in Brooklyn, New York, the 1,500 square foot studio implements an eco-friendly design for sustainability.
