Landscape Forms Takes on a Subtle Glow With Family of Lighting Fixtures

Founded in 1969 by landscape architect John Chipman Sr., Landscape Forms has long been a purveyor of con­sidered minimalism. Take Motive, a family of under­stated LED fixtures by designer Justin Champaign that blurs the line between indoor and outdoor lighting. The powder-coated cast-aluminum pole of the Motive Area lamp, 10 or 12 feet high, tapers to meet a flat cylinder concealing an indirect light source that sets the luminaire’s concave interior aglow. Champaign was inspired by “the crescent moon and how light and shadow play together to create form,” he says. There’s also a wall sconce, a pendant fixture, and a cantilevered floor lamp—a first for the manufacturer.
