margus triibmann: branch city lighting

‘branch city lighting’ by margus triibmann

margus triibmann of estonian design practice keha3 has created ‘branch city lighting’: drawing its shape from the crown of a pine, this streetlight features jointed elements that allow directional control, made from aluminium, galvanized and powder coated steel.

the form is designed as an improved solution to illuminating public spaces, so the number of adjustable components can be customized on each fixture according to the needs of the context where it will be placed.
