Aptilite produces a variety of unusual and unexpected LED-based light fixtures for both residential and commercial environments. Here's a breakdown:

Ceiling lights:
Aptilite makes a number of hanging lights. They're primarily designed to be very functional and efficient work lights, but with a style that brings a level of abstract art to the fixture. One of our retailers affectionately calls them "spaceship lights" because one of the designs looks like a flying saucer, but we think they fit in perfectly right here on earth.

Wall lights:
Aptilite makes several wall lights and they're all basically variations on a theme. A 10-inch disc of Aluminum is the foundation of the light. LEDs are attached to the disc, and then a variety of materials are used as light diffusers. These include laser cut plexiglas and vintage color vinyl LPs. If it works and it looks good, we're willing to give it a shot.

Top Shelf lights:
We've come up with the idea of a light designed to sit on top of a bookshelf, wall unit, or maybe even an armoire. It's sort of like a floor lamp that uses a separate piece of furniture as its base. Many of the lights that we make seem to know what they want to be before the first prototype is made, and that's how these lights came to be. If you've got a tall piece of furniture in an area that always seems to be in the shadows, these lights might be exactly what you're looking for.

Store Window lights:
Our first commercial product was the L16 store window light. We started in the city of Portsmouth, NH, a quaint and touristy city with hundreds of small retail shops and the lack of quality lighting for store display windows was impossible to ignore. We learned that there was no such thing as a light fixture specifically designed to light retail store windows and so we built one. We've even built a simulated store window in our studio to help make our store window lighting even better.
