The RAY Sconce Collection, designed by RUX and manufactured by its Stickbulb brand, is a series of highly minimalist wood-clad wall sconces, which consist of a single strip of light on a single strip of wood.
The collection’s name refers both to rays of light and to the lines in the cross-section of a tree trunk, known as medullary rays. The fixture’s hardware component allows for it to be installed horizontally or vertically, with the lighted section facing in any direction, including against the wall.
“The collection is incredibly versatile, coming in lengths ranging from 18 inches through to 5ft, as well as in vertical and horizontal orientations. The light can face the wall, creating a halo effect around the sconce, or graze the wall, creating a gentle wash of light in an up, down, left, or right direction,” says Stickbulb co-founder Christopher Beardsley.
Like the rest of Stickbulb’s light fixtures, the RAY collection’s wood components are available in sustainably-sourced Maple, Walnut and Ebonized Oak, as well as reclaimed Heart Pine and Water Tower Redwood. All woods used in Stickbulb fixtures are sourced from sustainably-grown forests or reclaimed from demolished buildings, decommissioned water towers, and trees that have already fallen.
“Ray is simple, clean, and quiet,” says Russell Greenberg, RUX founder and Stickbulb co-founder. “The design is so minimal that it draws your attention closer to the subtle details of the wood grain and the machined precision of the sconce construction.” stickbulb.com
