Light is both perception - how we see everything we experience - and how we remember the moment.
It's how we experience color, texture, dimension and even mood. It's how we sense and record the environmental ambience or 'feel' of a space. It provides that X-factor. It's either there or it isn't.
With this in consideration we bring our current lines of award-winning ambient lighting that enhance their environment in various ways, allowing one to control color, texture and intensity while achieving a Zen balance between the the natural and industrial worlds; a bridge between environment and perception.
The Lightlink Lighting collection - described as 'Zen/Industrial', 'Illuminated sculpture' or 'Euro-Texan art lighting' - was inspired by Mike's passion for light and an interest in how it can be manipulated to create a uniquely pleasing ambience while maintaining Green values and sustainability throughout design and implementation.
With Lightlink in its 20th year, Texas lighting designer Mike Brannon is achieving critical and commercial success around the country with his latest collection of original, Atomic Age inspired Texas-made, Zen/Industrial art lighting.
Light link's work, which fuses reclaimed industrial components and natural materials into ambient illuminated sculptures, is currently on display in galleries and private collections in numerous major markets including : London, New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle, DC, Boston, Denver, Boulder, Houston and Austin.
Lightlink specializes in creating textured, interactive, ambient art lighting suitable for any contemporary setting, including Spas, resorts, hotels, lobbies, atriums, public & private areas, bars, restaurants, airports and offices, as well as, residential interiors. The pieces have echoes of Zen and industrial design through a particularly organic design sense coupled with the use of such diverse materials and techniques as dichroic films, lenticular + moire effects, touch dimming, fluorescent acrylics, perforated metals, eco-resins, bamboo veneers, reclaimed hardwoods and hand-made art papers.
Among our values and design considerations at Lightlink are that each piece be inspired and inspiring, minimalistically unique, environmentally enhancing, interactive and of predominantly green design. In that pursuit all materials used have high recycled content, as much as 90% of hardwoods are reclaimed, the bamboo is sustainable, only eco-resin is used and almost all metals used are also from reclaimed or recycled sources.
Though originally and currently a guitarist/jazz recording artist, I've designed and built custom, green/sustainably designed, 'Zen/Industrial' architectural art lighting since 1997 which have shown in galleries, museums, at TEDx, AIA, ASID, IIDA, DCA and CMPBS events and in private collections in major cities throughout the US and UK, as Lightlink Lighting.
Mike Brannon's work for Lightlink has been published in 40 national and regional publications, to date including : Enlightenment, Eco-Structure, Organic Spa, Natural Home, Architect, Architectural Products, Hospitality Design, FORM, LD+A, Apartment Therapy, Inspire, Residential Lighting, Eco-Building Pulse, Metal Architecture, Innovative Home.
