THIN Task Lamp in Black Oxide

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_empty_space height="8px"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]The THIN Modular Lighting System, designed by Peter Bristol for Juniper, is a collection of light fixtures embodying reductive design commonly used in modern spaces. It embraces customizable configurations that can be changed in size and shape to assemble lighting solutions that are unique to each space. Discover more about the modular lighting system in our interview with Juniper founder, Shant Madjarian.  

What was the inspiration behind the THIN System?

The THIN System was meant to be a minimal yet powerful lighting solution that can overstep any size boundary. We were passionate to invent something meaningful to introduce a linear lighting solution that can be interconnected and configured to fit any application for residential, commercial, and hospitality spaces.  

Can you walk us through the design process?

The THIN Collection began formally with the THIN Task Lamp. As the product was developing, so was Juniper's relationship with Peter Bristol. Now our design process casually shifted to conversations that start off with, “Wouldn’t it be cool if…?” as we further innovate the limitless lighting system into a modern art light, vanity, under cabinet, pendant, and more.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_empty_space height="8px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

What makes the THIN System Different?

We proudly assemble high-quality LED lighting technology in our design studio to fit our fixtures with reductive design. With this creative solution, the THIN System lighting segments were innovated to embody 1/2-inch in diameter. They connect magnetically to allow users to fully rotate the configuration even after installation. It is not only the fixture that can be customized, but all users' lighting experience as well. In turn, this technology enables the THIN System to be like building blocks that can be used to create limitless runs or a cluster of installations.  

What does the future of the THIN Collection look like?

Even with the continued success of the THIN Collection, we are still rapidly expanding its capabilities to bring more imaginative lighting solutions to users all over the world. We are also working on projects to further introduce infinite lengths, new fixturing to allow for vertical suspension, and new connectors giving rise to new shapes and applications. So follow us on our Instagram to be the first to discover the expansion of the THIN System![/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="8px"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Explore the THIN Lighting System" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fthin-modular-lighting-system%2F|||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Contact Our Sales Team" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fcustomer-service%2F|||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

5 Design Ideas for Black and White Modern Kitchens

Feb
15

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Explore a muted tone for your kitchen to keep it clean, simple, and minimal. Black and white are becoming more popular in modern spaces for their aesthetically pleasing appearances when accentuated properly. Bold and sophisticated, these contemporary design ideas are helpful when revamping a black and white kitchen.  

1. Match or Contrast your Countertop with your Backsplash

Decide on a backsplash for your black and white kitchen after selecting the countertop's finish. This will give you a clearer vision, whether you would prefer a continuous-looking space by matching the material of the backsplash with the surface, or a dramatic flair that stands out when contrasting these elements.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="15533" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" link="https://www.us.kohler.com/us/"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

2. Opt for a Muted Marble Surface

A black marble surface with white veins is a subtle way to add a black and white tone in your kitchen without overdoing it. Cambria manufactures natural quartz surfaces and has a collection of elegant marble designs that capture guests when gathering in a space.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="15532" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" link="https://www.cambriausa.com/"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

3. Choose a Minimal Light Fixture in a Black Finish

A fixture with an all-black profile creates a clean aesthetic, especially in a monochromatic kitchen. We recommend browsing our THIN Multiples Triad to install above the kitchen island or our THIN Surface Mount Display Light as under-cabinet lighting. Both of these designs are part of the THIN Modular Lighting System, encapsulating brass light fixtures in Black Oxide.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="15485" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-surface-mount-display-light/"][vc_column_text]

4. Patterned Bone China Dinnerware

Extend your colorway to your dinnerware for a cohesive design that sets the mood during mealtime. This black and white plate with 24-carat gold rims from Bethan Gray merges modern and classic altogether for a luxurious table setting.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="15527" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" link="https://bethangray.com/"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

5. Incorporate Natural Elements Through Furniture

Avoid turning a black and white kitchen into a sterile space by including other architectural elements. Wood is an example of a material that can provide warmth and will help guests feel more comfortable. Complement your bar height kitchen island with Iskos-Berlin's Fiber Bar Stools that are accentuated by lacquered oak wood.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="15535" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" link="https://muuto.com/"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_btn title="View All Lighting Designs" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fproducts%2F|||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_btn title="Discover Juniper's Newest Design Projects" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fprojects%2F|||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_btn title="Read More Articles" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fmodern-lighting-blog%2F|||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]As a result of integrating classic elements with modern aesthetics, Assembly Row Hotel is a sophisticated 5-story hospitality space that offers premium amenities. Erected in Somerville, Massachusetts, the hotel designed by XSS Hotels is now Boston's neighbor, next to restaurants, retail stores, and entertainment sites.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_gallery interval="3" images="14626,14604,14624,14606,14605" img_size="full" onclick=""][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]A grand spiral staircase with clear glass railing captures guests' attention upon entering Assembly Row Hotel. Dark hues of gray and black govern the interiors, accentuated by elegant wood elements for warmth. Next to the staircase is Reflections, a luxury lounge with a bar that displays a range of alcoholic beverages. Behind the black marble bar countertop is a dining area with ample seating and boxy booths for intimate meals and drinks.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_gallery interval="3" images="14627,14628,14629,14630" img_size="full" onclick=""][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]With 151 rooms, 7 suites, and 5 conference rooms, Assembly Row Hotel maintains its modern interiors throughout the whole space with neutral colors and clean lines. To add to the refined linear profile, Juniper's desk-inset THIN Task Lamps were installed in all single room's bedside tables. 268 of our minimal desk lamps were embedded to avoid traces of clutter while carrying out the hotel interiors' ethos.   The THIN Task Lamp was chosen for its clean and linear profile. It was designed by Peter Bristol for Juniper, which launched the beginning of our growing collection of the THIN Modular Lighting System. Equipped with a ball joint on its inset base, the THIN Task Lamp rotates a full 360° to maximize its mobile abilities for adjustable lighting. An articulating hinge is integrated into the lamp to allow for more movement when adjusting the fixture. With an onboard dimmer on the THIN Task Lamp's tip, users can easily control the light output or rotate it to turn the fixture on or off.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_gallery interval="3" images="14638,14637,14635,14634,14636" img_size="full" onclick=""][vc_column_text]

FAQ: What is Color-Rendering Index (CRI) and Why is it Important?

Feb

[vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="11188" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-surface-mount-picture-light/"][vc_column_text]

THIN Surface Mount Picture Light in Satin Brass

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]When browsing light fixtures for residential, hospitality, or commercial spaces, considering excellent light quality is a must. You can determine this by choosing a fixture with a high Color-Rendering Index. We recommend between 90 to 100 for best results.  

Color-Rendering Index Definition

Color-Rendering Index, commonly called CRI, measures the accuracy of a color's appearance when displayed under a light source. The higher the CRI, the more accurately it translates a color.  

Why the Right CRI Matters

Besides installing lighting to illuminate dull spaces, it is also utilized for colors to pop and to help users distinguish hues. There are various applications that will require light fixtures to have impeccably high CRI to retain colors' fidelity, especially in retail displays, restaurants, and art galleries. Light fixtures with a low CRI can warp colors, make food appear unappetizing, and change an artwork's palette.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Recommended CRI

80 CRI can be suitable for many applications, but we would recommend choosing at least 90 CRI, the standard rating for all of our light fixtures, to achieve the best color display. Juniper also offers a 95 CRI option for those as passionate as we are about lighting. Contact our sales team for more questions.  

0-55 CRI

(Poor)

We don’t recommend using lighting with this low of a CRI rating.

60-85 CRI (Good) Most LED lighting falls in this range. It’s good, but could be better.

90-100 CRI

(Excellent)

Juniper fixtures have a standard 90 CRI rating for excellent color accuracy and quality.

To achieve long symmetrical under-cabinet lighting, the THIN Surface Mount Display Light features magnetic ends so users are able to seamlessly connect segments for endless lengths.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="13628" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-surface-mount-display-light/"][vc_empty_space][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="14679" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-surface-mount-display-light/"][vc_column_text]

2. Clustered Linear Kitchen Island Lighting

Pendant lighting is popular above kitchen islands due to their elaborate designs that make a statement in modern spaces. Defy the norm and opt for a minimal suspended fixture instead, which delivers a customized lighting experience while adding a contemporary character to your space.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="20px"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

What we Recommend:

Stemming from the THIN Multiples Collection, the THIN Multiples Triad features three rotatable segments that exude abundant illumination. Users can reposition lighting directly on the counter for tasks or other preferred directions for ambiance.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="14685" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-multiples-triad/"][vc_column_text]

3. Minimal Suspended Linear Lighting

Modern spaces nowadays are defined by straight lines and designs that indicate minimalism. Reflect this characteristic in fixtures with simplistic design to keep kitchens looking crisp and clean. We suggest a configuration that forms a single line with a sleek profile.  

What we Recommend:

The THIN Suspension, characterized by its 1/2-inch diameter segments, is an ideal fixture to avoid obstruction. It can be magnetically connected for extensive runs due to its modularity. Segments can be rotated on-site to adjust the fixture's illumination from task lighting to ambient lighting.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="14697" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-suspension/"][vc_column_text]

The Rail Outdoor Lighting System

Launching a contemporary lighting solution for external settings, the Rail Outdoor Lighting System was thoughtfully designed as a water-resistant light fixture. It features an aluminum body, while embodying a delicate design for luxurious illumination with a low profile. Install the Rail as a discreet patio lighting or as a minimal lighting solution to accentuate signage, storefront displays, and other architectural elements.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="50px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_gallery interval="3" images="14549,12447" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" custom_links="#E-8_aHR0cCUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy5qdW5pcGVyLWRlc2lnbi5jb20lMkZwcm9kdWN0cyUyRmF4aXMteC12ZXJ0aWNhbC1zdXNwZW5zaW9uJTJDaHR0cCUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy5qdW5pcGVyLWRlc2lnbi5jb20lMkZwcm9kdWN0cyUyRmF4aXMteC12ZXJ0aWNhbC1zdXNwZW5zaW9u"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

THIN Primaries Octagon

THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension

The THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension brings a new perspective on the Triad and Tetrad with its upright silhouette, suspended by a single aircraft cable.

Meet Mel, Juniper’s Sales Director

Jan
31

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Supporting Juniper’s founder, Shant Madjarian, is someone who ensures that the company is reaching the business’s goals in terms of sales. Bouncing from a large volume of calls and emails, it takes a motivated and efficient person to lead the sales team. That person is Mel—who happens to be Shant's wife. She's known as the socialite of Juniper, venturing to all corners of the world giving product presentations, meeting with clients, hosting events, and being the life of the party.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="10016" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/meet-the-team/"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]

WHAT’S YOUR ROLE AT JUNIPER?

After 11 years in sales from the tile industry, I joined the team as Juniper's Sales Director. My responsibilities mainly revolve around ensuring that we strategically plan and maximize profit by executing long-term plans tailored to Juniper’s goals. That includes delivering impeccable customer assistance to outweigh stellar expectations. I also work mindfully with the design team so we can provide a cohesive service altogether. An added duty (and most important of all) is bringing our kittens daily and taking care of them in between work.  

WHERE ARE YOU ORIGINALLY FROM?

I’m from Fort Worth, Texas. I now live in New York, which is also the home of our lighting design studio. You should make an appointment and come see our fixtures in person. I would love to show you around!  

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING JUNIPER'S SALES DIRECTOR?

My favorite part about Juniper is the diverse group of people I get to work with, including my colleagues and our clients. My job also requires me to travel on some occasions to meet with various industry leaders and designers, so that’s a really fun opportunity![/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="11564" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/m-lamp-cordless/"][vc_column_text]

M Lamp in Matte Black Designed by David Irwin for Juniper

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?

I have a long list but those who know me best would say my interests are running and late night karaoke (but not at the same time).  

WHERE DO YOU USUALLY HANG OUT?

Simple. It would just be in my private terrace in Carroll Gardens. I am a lucky gal!  

TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE FIXTURE AND WHY.

I think that the M Lamp designed by David Irwin for Juniper is timeless. It is a reflection of Juniper’s ability to create something classic, functional, and fun. As Juniper's first product to launch the business, it remains close to my heart.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Shop the M Lamp" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fproducts%2Fm-lamp-cordless%2F|||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Learn More About Our Team" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fmeet-the-team%2F|||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

5 Reasons to Choose Brass Hardware

Jan
30

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Commonly mistaken for gold for their similar appearance, brass is actually an alloy with properties that make it ideal for architectural elements found in mid-century modern spaces. At Juniper, we assemble select fixtures using solid brass tubing for reasons that go beyond its elegant physical attributes.  

1. Brass Does Not Tarnish

Brass, being an alloy of copper and zinc, does not rust, as this only forms in iron-based metals. However, like other natural metals, brass will patina over time. We protect our brass THIN Modular Lighting System with a mild matte lacquer to delay its discoloration and to protect it from humid exposures and natural oils.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="14300" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/2018/01/19/new-york-times-assemblage-zen-soho-house/"][vc_column_text]

2. Brass Has Antimicrobial Properties

Possessing natural antibacterial properties that kill harmful microbes, brass is a fitting hardware solution for spaces in food or medical industries. Each time brass hardware is held, its helpful properties are activated by sweat.  

3. Brass Offers Luxurious Vintage Aesthetics

We deliver high-quality products to all of our clients, like our brass fixtures from the THIN System. This metal finish can be too striking when used impulsively, therefore, we recommend distributing hints of brass within the space to create a simple yet stunning impression. A way to subtly incorporate brass in a contemporary space is to install Ground Control power accessories on furniture.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="14355" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/ground-control-toggle-switch/"][vc_column_text]

4. Brass Requires Less Upkeep

All brass components will need occasional cleaning to remove environment traces, but it does not need any special care. Simply wipe off dust with a damp cloth and your hardware may look brand new once again. Get more details on our cleaning instructions for brass fixtures.  

5. Brass is Recyclable and Sustainable

With the existence of different types of materials, not all brass hardware can be recycled. We offer our brass fixtures that contribute to the green movement and are sustainable due to the absence of toxic materials. These also hold value, allowing it to be sold to some scrap metal recycling yards.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="14301" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-suspension/"][vc_column_text]
