With each design based on Light Guide technology (traditionally used in scanners and copiers), San Francisco's Curio creates playful, linear lighting options for the home, giving the fading technology a second shot at technical relevancy. Set to launch with a range of LED designs next month at NY NOW, Curio hopes to catch the design community's collective eye with vaguely familiar silhouettes accented with bursts of color. And for the ever-important buzz factor, Curio fixtures are Bluetooth-enabled, giving users the ability to control their products through a native Curio app.
Though the collection is technically made up of just four designs; seven variations in total will be available. Of the batch, the slender shape of the Structo standing lamp and the spider-like hanging Hype are possibly the most intriguing. Keep an eye out for the August 2014 launch, at both Curio online and NY NOW.
