Creative Play on Mid-Century Modern Design Offers Sophisticated, Whole-Home Lighting Options
KOHLER, WI / ACCESSWIRE / November 17, 2021 / KOHLER Lighting launched Kraga, a sculptural new collection that marries tailored line with geometric form, resulting in an inspired series that nods to the works of such iconic 20th century Modern Italian designers as Achille Castiglioni, Gae Aulenti, and Joe Colombo. Sculptural, with an elegance that is at once bold, yet understated, devoid of unnecessary decorative elements by relying instead on the purity of pared down form and hand-selected materials. The Kraga collection offers a One-Light Flush-Mount, a One-Light Sconce, a One-Light Pendant, a Five-Light Linear Chandelier, and a Five-Light Chandelier.
Crafted from smooth, cast metal frames fitted with glowing, cast-glass, creamy white globes, each Kraga lighting design are an expressive work-of-art, with its own unique personality and individual flair. The straightforward metalwork frames effect the appropriate visual tension against the sleek, pearly surface of the glossy, translucent orbs, with the opaque glass emitting a warm glow that illuminates from within. Showstopping Kraga designs include:
The Kraga One-Light Sconce, available in Matte Black and Polished Chrome, is a sophisticated form that takes on an entirely different persona depending upon the finish selected. The captivating design features a thin, circular back plate that suspends the dramatic curved and inverted C-shaped metalworks support, its seamless length broken by a precise center reveal before clasping the single, translucent, creamy white cast glass orb in an elegant sweep creating visual contrast that is almost tactile in its presentation.
The Kraga Single Pendant was designed to make a statement whether selected as a striking, stand-alone silhouette or grouped in linear or staggered for dramatic effect. A diminutive Matte Black metalworks circular ceiling plate and simple, sleek rod carries down to a metalworks frame, the curved length separated by a center reveal, and suspends the cast-glass, white orb in contrasting visual display.
The sweeping Kraga Five-Light Linear Chandelier is an elegant silhouette reminiscent of the classic beauty of pearl drop earrings with just a touch of a modern edginess. A simple Matte Black metalworks rectangular ceiling plate and twin supports hold a single metal bar draped by five singular contrasting, cast-glass, white orbs suspended from a stylized, double-hoop metalworks frame.
All KOHLER Lighting designs are quality tested to ensure that each light fixture will remain beautiful even after years of repeated exposure to damp environments. There is also a simplicity thoughtfully designed into each, from easy installation and color-matched finishes to diffusers for soft, ambient light. The result is a compelling assortment of lighting to fit most lifestyles and budgets.
