Alphabet of Light is a new font that translates into light, a luminous language used to write an express one’s thoughts.
It can be used to design light in a space with words as well as graphic signs using simple base modules with specific geometric proportions that can be combined to create countless linear or curved structures of light.
The varying lengths, angles, and diameters of the modules allow for a wide range of possibilities. Alphabet of Light uses innovative technological and manufacturing principals to produce a continuous and comfortable light. Joints are concealed without shadows or discontinuities. While it has a minimal presence, it encloses groundbreaking patented optoelectronic and mechanical innovation.
