Aquiline is the launch collection from lighting brand Gestalt Lighting.
True to the guiding principles of the Gestalt brand, meaning ‘more than the sum of its parts’, the Aquiline collection is formed of multiple natural materials; crystal, brass and ceramic and uses several traditional crafting techniques to create a contemporary take on classic silhouettes.
Optical crystal, a material usually associated with the manufacture of microscopes, optical lenses and
medical instruments is re-imagined for the Aquiline collection. It’s extreme clarity and reflectivity make it the perfect light conduit.
Each of the six shapes within the collection are unified through a single faceted shade, hand crafted in a reductive process where a solid mass is shaped on a grinding wheel to achieve the iconic shape.
HAND CRAFTED Tradition
Aquiline is handmade in Europe by a small family run workshop. With over 50 years of experience in making handcrafted lighting. Each element passes through the hands of craftsman who are well versed in the techniques of ceramic, metal and stone.
