Vessel Designed by Todd Bracher
Created by visionary designer Todd Bracher, Vessel is a glare-free light that evolved through challenging traditionally held views on light efficiency.
Vessel’s LED light source is concealed above a high-quality quartz cylinder. Light is refracted downward through a finely tuned, solid body and appears as though it is emanating from an unseen origin. This effect, called total internal reflection, provides balanced, high-performance surface illumination.
The quartz cylinder contains 99.99% pure Silicon dioxide (SiO2), which undergoes an extensive 9-step process that includes milling, acid bathing, sand blasting and finally, fire flame polishing. This unique process and attention to detail creates the most optically pure body available in the lighting industry.
Vessel has a minimal aesthetic that evokes simplicity and refinement. Its honest and timeless design has received multiple industry accolades, including the Best of Year award from Interior Design magazine.
Offering beautiful light quality, Vessel is available in a neutral (3500K) or warm tone (2700K). Offering three optic length sizes, Vessel produces a dramatic display when hung or mounted collectively and is an elegant solution for installations far beyond the corporate environment - including hospitality and residential settings.
Vessel’s fusion of cutting-edge functionality and beauty places it into a class of its own, beyond any other decorative and architectural lighting category that exists today.
Todd Bracher’s creation of Vessel began with a question: "Is it possible to create a light completely free of glare?" Such a task required unique materials and optical capabilities. Developed in close collaboration with physicists and optical engineers, the result is a design that is closely aligned with Humanscale’s core values of performance, simplicity and longevity.
