The adaptive and interactive features of the Talea introduced exciting challenges to the design process. I believe we found a balance that allows this fixture to thrive in a range of spaces and different applications. I am really pleased with how the design language turned out, specifically how the expressive hinge suggests its ability to swing, and how the wood to metal arm detailing suggests the arm can telescope. It’s a beautiful mixture of utility and elegance.
