TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 19, 2012) - Toronto lighting manufacturer Woodlight and Tony Koukos, world travel photographer, have teamed up to produce a new line of light fixtures featuring photo-based images created by Koukos. The line is being revealed at the IIDEX Canada design show in Toronto, Sept. 20 and 21, 2012.
Stylized images used in the fixtures range from architectural details shot in Paris to cherry blossoms, stacks of weathered lumber and gritty street graffiti.
To create the fixtures, high definition images are first printed on fine translucent fabrics. The results are mated to a special backing and built into pendant and sconce and table lamp fixtures with dramatic effect. Pendants are available both as shades and complete, approved fixtures ready for installation.
Photographer Koukos finds inspiration throughout the world. Currently residing in Canada but with strong ties to his native Greece and her whitewashed isles, Tony is a veteran traveller whose search for unique subjects has taken him to over 30 countries. His images are sold around the world and grace the walls of homes and fine establishments including Four Seasons hotels.
Woodlight started up in 2011 with an initial focus on using translucent wood veneers to create striking yet simple shades and fixtures. Woodlight's John Peck admired Koukos's images when the two met at a Toronto design show earlier this year, and the two soon decided to collaborate on these unique new products.
More information on Koukos and Woodlight is available at www.tonykoukos.com and www.woodlight.ca.
Peck and Koukos will be available for interviews at the IIDEX show and before and after by appointment. High resolution images are available on request.
