BLOC @ Eden Design

BLOC is a new way of thinking integrated light. Choose between several fixtures and add your choice of natural materials such as marble, wood, brass or even materials of your choice to suit your unique style requirements.

The creative minds at design agency Entremode noticed that in the lighting industry, the colours black and white are predominant, indeed for linear lighting. This inspired the designers to create an alternative. Not wanting to limit themselves to using just one single material, they pushed the boundaries and explore the use of diverse materials. The result is a sleek design, easy to install, modular and without visible fastening elements.

In order to be able to electrify to the various light fittings, a standard track was chosen. The blocks are connected to it with either clips and/or adaptors. The biggest challenge was to align the various materials, each with their unique characteristics. It was essential for them to work with authentic, qualitative materials – no reproductions and the materials must be sourced locally. The seemingly simple structure conceals complexity and elegance. Milling of marble elements is done with absolute precision at a standard you’d usually anticipate from metalworks. To release this intricate piece of lighting design into the world, it has taken Eden Design 2,5 years, collaborating with over ten different suppliers and exceptional craftsmanship. With BLOC, they have pioneered a solution that creates the freedom to combine diverse luxurious materials in a high-end linear lighting design.
