Lara Bohinc Takes a Scientific Approach to the Ion Lighting Collection

In Greek, ion means going. It’s a word that calls to mind molecules, laboratories, and science fiction. It also signals the futuristic approach Lara Bohinc took to her Ion collection for Bohinc Studio. The three pieces are celestial-inspired studies in brushed brass that reflect the designer’s fascination with Jupiter’s rings. Take the double-arch form of the Ion desk lamp, or the atomic Neutron wall sconce with its half-moon shape supported by double rings. The new pieces are presented in photography that imagines urban town houses reclaimed by nature. To wit: the Electron table lamp, with its uneven branches flanked by tropical plants.
