The 'Gweilo' lights are a range of luminaries that bring an ethereal touch to the process of brightening up a space in a passive, almost ghostly manner. The lights draw design inspiration from the actual rays of light created by the luminaries, which gives each one a flowing aesthetic that could be mistaken for movement at first glance. These design aspects are what influences the name of the lights, Gweilo, which translates to 'white ghost from Cantonese.
The light fixtures are designed in XS, S, M, L and XL size options, and are achieved using optical-grade acrylic sheets that have been expertly shaped to achieve the wavy finish seen here. The 'Gweilo' lights are the design work of Alex Josephson of the Toronto-based design firm PARTISANS.
