Created by visionary designer Todd Bracher, Vessel is a glare-free light that evolved through challenging traditionally held views on light efficiency. Vessel’s LED light source is concealed above a high-quality quartz cylinder. Light is refracted downward through a finely tuned, solid body and appears as though it is emanating from an unseen origin. This effect, called total internal reflection, provides balanced, high-performance surface illumination.
The quartz cylinder contains 99.99% pure Silicon dioxide (SiO2), which undergoes an extensive 9-step process that includes milling, acid bathing, sand blasting and finally, fire flame polishing. This unique process and attention to detail creates the most optically pure body available in the lighting industry.
