“Winter” Showcase

Update for the week of February 10, 2022

See Lambert & Fils and No. 8 Lighting IRL

Experience these two stellar brands IN-REAL-LIFE. Tour this must-see pop-up exhibit before it leaves town. 03.18.22 Update: If you didn’t make it in to see the display this winter, you’re in luck. We’ve extended the show into early May. Book your tour today!

For a limited time, we’re showing off exquisite Lambert & Fils and No. 8 Lighting luminaires at our studio in San Francisco’s design district. Join us for a tour before the show leaves town–you might even win a piece of the show.

About the Showcase
Lambert & FilsExperience Lambert & Fils’ chic, stylishly bold handmade offerings in real life. Our exhibit features 12+ installations representing different collections, colors and finish options. We have large-scale suspended installations, wall-mounted fixtures, and pieces from Lambert & Fils’ new Sainte and Parc collections.

No. 8 Lighting: See and compare No. 8’s luxe architectural lighting solutions. Highlights you won’t want to miss: we’re showing off the new, more budget-friendly 200 series installed alongside No. 8’s famed 800 series to demonstrate how well they mix. We’ll also demonstrate how No. 8’s new tunable white dramatically impacts the appearance of color.

The Studio: Our studio’s 1,800 square feet of open gallery space was designed to be the perfect canvas for pop-up viewing opportunities. Clouds mounted to high ceilings in our lobby area are spaced to allow an uncluttered, 360° view of suspended luminaires, showing off both the fixture and the affixing hardware. Our corridor area is lined on one side with spaces that allow specifiers to view pendants and wall-mounted luminaires up close; the opposite side is designed to showcase recessed fixtures at a range close enough to appreciate the hardware, but roomy enough to allow meaningful observation of light.
