Dimple

Originally designed in collaboration with Sister City for a custom fixture version featuring clear glass and a white-painted interior, Dimple is a compact and dimmable, flush-mounted sconce that casts a diffuse and soft, atmospheric light. Made from solid-cast glass and an anodized aluminum backing, Dimple is cheekily named for the thick, domed circular diffuser embedded into its front face. This unique feature renders its LED source into a soft, atmospheric glow that emanates an orb-like, optical pattern.

Understated Warmth

Originally designed to complement the minimalist interiors of Manhattan’s Sister City hotel, Dimple’s simple silhouette consists of a solid glass lens against an anodized aluminum backing. The unique domed surface casts light in glowing, orb-like patterns.

The final form for the Dimple is almost as if you took a sphere and pushed it into the face of a plane, to create a concave curvature that’s visible through the thickness of the glass. It was a pleasant surprise to see how that plays with the light coming through it.
