Butler W – Deltalight
Specialists in architectural lighting, West Flanders-based Delta Light entrusted designer Arik Levy with the creation of its new “Butler” collection, a surprising range of exterior luminaires that can also be used inside.
Until now, Delta Light’s products have primarily been designed by its 30-strong internal R&D team, led by the company’s founder, Paul Ameloot. However, the company has broken new ground by joining forces with the designer Arik Levy, who has dreamt up a new exterior collection, “Butler”, to complement the brand’s range.
The culmination of two years’ work, Butler is Delta Light’s flagship for the exploration of previously unchartered territory. Different from the typical Delta Light design code, Arik came up with a reinterpretation of the lampshade archetype. Suited for both residential and commercial projects, designed to upgrade any patio, garden or walkway. Courtesy of its simple yet highly evocative shape, the Butler brings an interior touch into your outside space. It’s simultaneously reassuring, elegant and feminine, with its slender base and a pleated shade reminiscent of traditional silk or paper models. But have no fear: this apparent fragility conceals real strength and an impressive lighting capacity. “I’m not fragile: I’m delicate, like you”
At first sight, the Butler appears to be made of aluminium like most outdoor lights, but when you touch the shade, it’s immediately clear that such finesse and detail could not be created using metal. The Butler’s distinct personality comes from the material chosen: a polymer with a highly resistant powder paint coating.
The Butler comes in different floor mounted and wall mounted versions. The Butler W is both for interior and exterior application, single or double, down and down-up. All versions come in black or aluminum grey finish.
