PSLAB Beirut developed for a restaurant in Cairo, Egypt a lighting system made of metallic beams carrying horseshoe-like fixtures. The grid of the substructure is induced by the façade’s architectural layout of windows and walls.

Micro level

Industrial designer James Patmore apparently found plenty of inspiration in the crystalline forms found in nature at the micro level.  His NaCl Pendant Light is inspired by the very common chemical compound- salt. This wild, geometrically modular lamp won’t provide a lot of light, but it will be a brilliant center piece to your modern living room– and a conversation starter in itself.

Lighting Concept by PSLAB

PSLAB was approached by Paris-based architect India Mahdavi in order to develop a lighting concept for a typical room setting and lobby areas for the renovated Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel, Monte-Carlo S.B.M. Lighting Concept by PSLAB trans modern lighting The main lobby area is characterized by a very high ceiling topped with a dome-like recess, as if bringing together a cycloidal transition of the space walls. Ceiling mounted fixtures are conceived to light the space and accentuate the ceiling pit. Having different axes heights, he fixtures are set to cluster around the tallest-axis fitting moving to the shortest-axis fitting in a radial manner, creating an inverted cone-shaped light source.

The fixtures are made from metal sheets laser-cut into leaf-like shapes with a ring for fixation. The hammering technique used to achieve the curvature of the sheets gives each its unique texture. The overlapping of multiple leaves gives a rotational impression resulting in a diffused light effect. A system of superimposed short discs combines the sheets allowing them to rotate around its axis in two directions, hence allowing multiple settings. The lamp is enclosed inside the fixation system and the glossy finish of the leaves reflects the light coming out from differently positioned slits on the discs. These fittings are then adapted to be wall mounted in single or double units to light the restaurant and staircases.

The typical room features a short entrance corridor leading to a sleeping area with a curved corner containing the sitting area. The length of the corridor is highlighted by inserting narrow recessed down lights in the ceiling along its path. The corner space, not visible from the entrance door, is emphasized by tailor-made white on white metal cylinders developed for installation in groups of two of different size. Each houses an off-centered fluorescent light source that is sunken and concealed within the body in order to provide a glare-free ambient light. A third element is set in the corridor as a hint for the lighting objects inside. The layout of the three objects is then reworked to conform with the settings of the different room types.

Lighting Concept by PSLAB for Saradar Private Offices

Saradar Private Offices made up of three main double volume spaces featuring high glass facades into the building central atrium; two symmetrical and identical entrances connected by a conference room.

We unified these spaces in the way they are perceived from the central atrium. in the two parallel entrances we created one unifying layer of lighting in the ceiling. this layer was composed of a set of truncated conical light objects of diverse proportions. each object houses a lamp deeply fixed inside its cavity. The asymmetrical hole at the bottom of the conical shape determines the path of light casted. seen from an elevation view, the rugged outline of these fixtures defines a false ceiling layer creating a surface of ambient light. For the conference room we developed a set of suspended fixtures creating a new ceiling layer. The sharp edge on the disk-like fittings gives the impression of floating sheets, while the off-centered cavity enclosing two large bulbs reveals the objects’ real massiveness. via PSLAB
