The Collaborators

In last year's KBIS, we unveiled the DeKauri collaboration, spearheaded by renowned architect and designer Daniel Germani. He partnered with designers once again for KBIS Las Vegas 2019 to exhibit a contemporary kitchen concept by utilizing designs that embody crisp lines and modern architectural elements.   Poliform displays a customized kitchen system that demonstrates a minimal profile, fitted with cabinet doors and panels by Dekton by Cosentino. They used superior materials to establish a durable kitchen solution that thrives both in form and function. Highlighting the kitchen system, Juniper installed THIN Suspensions to further accentuate the linear aesthetic.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_gallery interval="3" images="16784,16782,16783" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" custom_links_target="_blank" custom_links="#E-8_aHR0cHMlM0ElMkYlMkZ3d3cua2Jpcy5jb20lMkYlMkNodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy5rYmlzLmNvbSUyRiUyQ2h0dHBzJTNBJTJGJTJGd3d3LmtiaXMuY29tJTJG"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

About the THIN Suspension

Sleek and modern, the THIN Suspension exhibits a reduced form through a single line, designed by Peter Bristol for Juniper. It connects magnetically to make installation quick and easy. This feature also allows users to connect light segments together to form longer, cohesive configurations above countertops, vanity mirrors, or modern artworks. With the ability to fully rotate, the THIN Suspension's direct and indirect lighting can be repositioned to your liking.   Photos from Daniel Germani[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="8669" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-suspension/"][vc_column_text]

Recollection of the THIN Modular Lighting System with Shant Madjarian

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]

The Story of Studio Kvänum Oslo AS

Inger Marie Nordrum and Ketill Danielsen, a couple unified through their mutual love for creativity, built a kitchen studio in 2004 to bring humble Norwegian design lovers to the surface. While in Milan, Giorgio Armani himself proposed his luxury line, Armani Casa, to Danielsen to possibly introduce the designer to the studio's upcoming Norway market. However, Danielsen politely declined after realizing that the price point exceeded what down-to-earth locals would prefer.  

Studio Kvänum Today

From a 700-square-meter retail space in Skøyen, Oslo, Studio Kvänum grew into 30 retailers due to the couple's honesty to their intention. They have expanded in Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, and throughout Norway—still catering to the European region. Until this day, Nordrum and Danielsen continue to discover designers with beautiful handmade crafts tucked in big and small cities all over the world, such as Brooklyn, New York, Milan, Copenhagen, and London.  
"We are driven by an unstoppable curiosity and an insatiable pursuit of beautiful products with soul, made of natural materials that make the heart beat a little faster." - Ketill Danielsen, Creator of Studio Kvänum Oslo AS

[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.

3 Recommended Lighting Designs For Contemporary Kitchen Lighting

Feb
04

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Being one of the busiest rooms in a residential space, kitchens need ample lighting to guarantee a comfortable space for meal preps and entertaining guests. From under-cabinet to kitchen island lighting, read further to discover fixures to install as contemporary kitchen lighting when building or remodeling a space.  

1. Brass Under-Cabinet Lighting

Under-cabinet lighting, being a practical installation for productive tasks, is a contemporary kitchen lighting solution that enhances work efficiency. When tracing under-cabinets, eyes are also naturally drawn to its linear silhouette. Consider fixtures with materials like brass for added luxurious value.  

What we Recommend:

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]
