Studio Truly Truly have designed a lighting system of exceptional purity of form in their first collaboration with us. The new Typography lighting system is inspired by the way characters form words, and how these can be arranged in relationships to create a language of expression.


Typography CILON Details


Typography is a graphic lighting system, reflective of the multi-disciplinary talent of its designers and the manufacturing and specialist technical abilities of Rakumba.


An advanced patent-pending rail, almost impossibly thin, allows for the complete mobility of any light along the line. With the first Typography collection, CILON, Rakumba introduces seven lighting fixtures, or characters. Each light can be positioned on four sides of the central axis and can be controlled independently of any other. Combining multiple rails in vertical or horizontal orientations enables Typography to be formed into endless expressions; sophisticated pendants, chandeliers, wall sconces and room dividers, almost limitless design solutions. And over time, lights can be moved to new positions, or new lights and rails can be added. The design possibilities are almost limitless.
