Climber 87 Outdoor Wall Sconce
Climber 87 outdoor wall sconce is an LED light source that is vertically mounted, reaching new heights with its simplistic geometric design as the light climbs up the walls. This minimalist light box was designed by Piero Lissoni in 2017, featuring a rectangular low copper, die-cast aluminum body. Glass-protected low optics are set to minimize glare and maximize visual comfort. Climber 87 is offered in two model, Down, which features the light source emitting only from the bottom, and Up & Down, which allows for the light to glow from the top and bottom of the sconce.
Available in six finishes: White, Grey, Anthracite, Black, Deep Brown, and Forest Green.
Industrial but playful might sound like a contradiction, but in the hands of Piero Lissoni, it makes perfect sense. The Italian architect and designer has become one of the most accomplished of his generation, with collaborations with everyone from Alessi to Flos to Tecno. After training as an architect at the prestigious Politecnico di Milano University, Lissoni formed his own firm to create witty takes on modernism’s clean lines.
In 1996, he launched a visual communication agency, Graph.x, followed 17 years later by Lissoni Architettura, which handles interior design projects. But Lissoni’s furnishings really show off his charm: his Otto seating system for Cassina, named for the way the numeral is pronounced in Italian, tosses a titular number of comfy cushions into a slim aluminum rectangle for a perfect blend of hard and soft. And his Extrasoft system for Living Divani tosses away the frame entirely. It’s a chic take on the kid’s bedroom favorite, the beanbag, but with a lifetime’s worth of possible arrangements.
