Manufactured by Melbourne-based lighting manufacturer Rakumba, Typography is a mix-and-match graphic lighting system, reflective of the multi-disciplinary talents of Studio Truly Truly. Inspired by the way characters form words, and how these words can be arranged to create language, seven lighting fixtures – or ‘characters’ – make up the building blocks of the system. Each light can be positioned on the four sides of the rail axis and can be independently controlled. Combining multiple rails in vertical or horizontal orientations enables complete mobility – any light can be formed into endless expressions.
