Lighting alone is not enough, because light can totally change the feel of the spaces in which we live. Enlightened use of light brings on emotions, sharpens the senses and aids communication as if favours dialogue with its positive ambiance. This is why all the SLIDE products are also light sources. An absolute minimum of wiring, simple to install, of clean and versatile design with a myriad applications, in plastic materials which are both light and robust, basic forms which do not take themselves too seriously and lots, lots of colour; these are the guidelines SLIDE has chosen so as to create a special atmosphere with its lighting creations.
