Charles Favs

As a founding father of Eurolite, and someone who has been immersed in many a lighting project and seen countless fixtures and light creations - what could possibly be Charles Lyall's favorite light? ... Does he have a favorite?  

In honor of Father's Day 2020 we asked Charles to reflect on what pieces and what in lighting design resonates most with him after 30+ years in the biz. Not only did Charles pause in a sentimental reflection, you could see the genuine love of light in his eyes.

He explained it was about creating the sense and effect of light that really excites him. Objects that Glow: Light that is felt and not necessarily seen.

Simple and finely made are the true winning combination for him, and while It was hard to pick just one favourite, he easily listed off many fixtures and why he loves them.
