Designer Caine Heintzman's ingenious Vale System adds a horizontally oriented X-Axis pendant ranging from a single LED module up to 6 units placed end-to-end. The seemingly floating fixture hangs by thin wires from the ceiling and creates a softly warm and multidirectional illumination via each prismatic acrylic lens.

Vancouver-based A-N-D (formerly ANDlight) reflects creative director Lukas Peet’s aim to imbue his designs with a timeless spirit and deeply thought-out functionality. Influenced by his jewelry designer father, he attended the prestigious Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands before co-founding A-N-D in Canada with partners Caine Heintzman and Matt Davis—a combined studio and manufacturer where original collections are conceptualized, built and assembled in-house.
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 Lukas wants each piece to be unique. “Everything has to have a unique little angle,” he 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.”
