Light Troopers by Anki Gneib

Combining smooth, turned wood with acrylic inlays, designer Anki Gneib created a collection of lighting called Light Troopers. Each piece’s wood component has four slices of the acrylic integrated in letting light pass through in vertical beams.


The floor lights, named SuperTrooper, are a progression from her Holy design, which are oversized candlesticks. The candlestick design is now embedded with lights.


StarTrooper are the more minimal pieces in the collection, with table lights and pendant lights that feature the same narrow slice of light escaping through the wood.
