Shibu, the name of a homeware and accessories company based in Switzerland, created by award-winning Greek designers Constantinos Hoursoglou and Athanasios Babalis, is at Maison&Objet 2014 Paris with “Linelight”.
SHIBUI will participate in the MAISON & OBJET 2014, the leading international trade-show for home-fashion professionals, which will be held in Paris, 5 – 9 September 2014. MAISON & OBJET is a genuine crossroads for all the arts of living, design and decoration and reflects today’s and tomorrow’s trends.
The ”Linelight” is a versatile L.E.D. task light certified for home or office use, made of standard 12×12 mm extruded aluminum tubing with a hollow base that houses the super thin transformer.
The aim of the project was to design a light source out of commercially available elements that is elegant, discreet and functional. Once folded down and turned against the wall, it provides ambient illumination.
