Umbra & Lux
Umbra & Lux creates unique illuminated sculptures that are as much art pieces as functional light sources. The studio was born in Vancouver, British Columbia at the iconic 1000 Parker Street Studios when two passionate minds with a strong love for art, design & the environment joined their respective strengths. A shared aesthetic vision brought them to leverage sophisticated materials to build featherweight and environmentally friendly mobile light art pieces that seem to float on air.
