Opinion by Richard Baird
Lumik is a Spanish lighting design and manufacture company, and partnership between the traditional metalworking company of Francesc and Ferran Martí, and interior designer and art director Frank Domínguez. Together they have 65 years of experience, and have built a catalogue of products with simple forms, moments of colour, elements of play and the industrial. These move between those that are hidden and utilitarian and those designed to be a feature and focal point. Lumik is described as being a trendsetter with a customisable and made-on-demand approach that offers customers a multitude of possibilities. This is expressed by the company’s graphic identity, designed by Barcelona based Hey, through a variety of cheerful and modern colours, a custom typeface, and the strong material qualities of brochure and business cards.
