I'm just about to take delivery of the new Link light by Peter Stathis which I've been coveting since seeing early prototypes at his studio last year. I've been an admirer of his work for some time and have had the good fortune to be co teaching a summer course at CCA (California College of the Arts) within the I.D. department over the last month and can honestly say that he's one of the smartest, well versed, articulate and thoughtful designers I've had the good fortune to meet. His knowledge of design is positively encyclopaedic and I feel that I've been learning as much as the students.
The LINK is a true progression in the history of both the angle poise and lighting, with it's form clearly referencing the articulation of it's predecessors yet eschewing the wires, cables and coiled springs in favour of clean parallel linkages and the light itself custom built with state of art LED technology.
