In its Vine version for ceiling or wall, ANDlight isolates the curved form that is repeated to dramatic effect in the companion pendant. Caine Heintzman's outsize proportions distinguish the basic structure of a gleaming chrome arc flanked by a pair of opal glass globes. Illuminated by an LED light source, Vine is intriguing as a solo unit—or dazzling when lined up in a cascade of light—and can be oriented either horizontally or vertically in installation.

Vancouver-based ANDlight reflects creative director Lukas Peet’s aim to imbue his designs with a timeless spirit and deeply thought-out functionality. Influenced as a child by his jewelry designer father, he attended the prestigious Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands before returning to Canada and cofounding the company with partners Caine Heintzman and Matt Davis “with the intent to challenge existing standards in lighting,” he says.
There is also a touch of playfulness in pieces like the Button series, with its tilting circular LED face or Orbit with its allusion to the solar system. Inspiration can come from anywhere but he wants each piece to be unique, with an attention to detail afforded by keeping all of the production close by in Canada. “Everything has to have a unique little angle,” Lukas says. “If you’re a musician or an artist or a designer, your whole life should revolve around creating new things—not copying someone else.”
