Elegant features: Michael Graves & Associates’ additions to Portfolio collection

ILEX launched three new additions to the Portfolio collection of Michael Graves & Associates, just as it celebrates its 50th anniversary. The new Table Top, Theia and Fete lights have a variety of finishes and configurations to suit a range of applications. 

The Table Top sconce has a flared, blown glass shade and cylindrical stepped stem perched atop an integrated wall-mounted ledge. The metal surface under the ledge is ornamented with a subtle curl. The soft square-edged shade, which houses the LED source, is formed out of single cast glass. Ideal for hospitality environments and ADA compliant, the Shiny Opal glass diffuser is contrasted by architectural bronze, antique brass, brushed nickel or polished nickel finish options. A halogen light source is also available.

Theia pendant pays reference to the Greek mythological term for “goddess." Its large format shades are composed of blown glass, which is virtually free from imperfections. Theia is available in two configurations, a row of three or a square composition of four of the shades suspended from metal mounting. Mounting finish options include architectural bronze, antique brass, brushed and polished nickel, or satin brass. Incandescent light source comes standard. Fluorescent is also available.
