The Urban Edge Collection
Sophisticated with a downtown attitude. With a civilized approach to an industrial aesthetic, the style found in Sonneman’s new Urban Edge collection is revisionist yet modern. Its distinct simplicity and expansive sculptural presence redefines the old as new again.

Atelier is a contemporary style bred from the urban edge. A civilized approach to an industrial aesthetic, its distinct simplicity and expansive sculptural presence makes this pendant or sconce ideal for open spaces. A weight rotates on a stem to counter-balance its rotatable arms.

Altering the convention of a lighting fixture array while built symmetrically around a central column, Orb defies the expected by connecting its lit stems in a sculptural dance of various angles bringing order from chaos.

The Apollo collection, inspired by the god of light, is luminous, reflective, shimmering transparence—simple, yet mysterious. It lends a sophisticated air to living and dining areas, bedrooms, bathrooms, entry areas and landings. This collection creates a contemporary touch in your home or architecturally inspired space.

Industrial honesty and straightforward simplicity defines the sophisticated urban space. Tribeca’s clear glass globe and black wire mesh refracts the illuminated filament of its showcase lamp. Or, remove the mesh to reveal the warm radiance of the naked, specially coated bronze bulb.

Robert Sonneman pioneered modern lighting as an art form. World renowned and acclaimed for clean lines and alliance to form and function, his world famous, award-winning designs, have been at the forefront of the design world for over four decades. Working in New York, Milan and Tokyo resulted in selling designs worldwide under the Sonneman name since 1967. Robert introduced sleek, new functionalist lighting designs in the 60s and 70s that have become classics of the modern era. Sonneman's sensibilities and prolific design vocabulary extend through the modern architectural and decorative genres of the 20th century and forward to the contemporary diversity of the 21st.
Sonneman Lighting was founded in 2003 with partners David Littman and Sonny Park as Sonneman recognized the need to bring an American vision to the contemporary genre. "I continue to investigate the evolutionary and the revolutionary as the basis for developing a cosmopolitan American style," said Robert Sonneman.
