The light blade comes from the concrete. When it’s off, it disappears. No artifice, just a cut in the concrete with brutal and magic inspiration: actually a technical prodigy, directly casted into the concrete, the product of a sophisticated and invisible genius to fuse architecture and light in a natural way.
The Ghost line represents a revolution in the way of conceiving outdoor lighting. It works by “subtraction” rather than “addition”: no visible lighting fixture is added to the building’s structure, but on the contrary it consists in a void filled with light. The light comes directly from the structure and emphasizes the creative path envisaged by the lighting designer.
Ghost is a sign, a bright pixel that appears or disappears marking the architectural rhythm. It is a primary element, similar to a brick. With a brick you can build a small wall but also a cathedral. It will be the ability of the designers to utilize such lighting pixel and create something extraordinary. Ghost, what we want to add is just light.
