The Intersection of Light & Architecture


Studio Context is the newest resource for the Central Iowa Design Community, making it easier for your team to test ideas and concepts during the design phase.  We can help your team explore the relation of light and color to the built environment.  To arrange a visit to our new mock-up showroom, please contact a member of our JTH Lighting Iowa staff.

Louis Poulsen Pop Up Showroom

Studio Context recently concluded our most recent Pop Up Showroom featuring Louis Poulsen and the designs of industry icon Poul Henningsen.  We had a wonderful time discussing the background and life of Poul Henningsen while relating his concepts not only to the PH series fixtures but to all Poulsen designs.

In conjunction with the presentation, a raffle was held to award a PH table lamp and an AJ floor lamp to two lucky attendees.  The PH Table lamp was won by David Raver of Trivalent Lighting Studio while the AJ Floor was won by Levi Robb of BNIM Architects.

Thank you to all who attended and we'll look forward to seeing you soon at our Spring 2019 Pop Up!


Artemide Pop Up Showroom

Studio Context recently welcomed over a dozen new designs from Artemide North America for a Pop Up Showroom.  The theme of this presentation was "More Than Just a Pretty Face".  Designers from across Central Iowa learned about Artemide history as an innovator, not only in aesthetic design but just as impressively in technology. 

"The design community has always turned to Artemide when looking for impactful designs but don't often understand the industry leading engineering that is woven into the fabric of who Artemide is," stated Rob Beaman, Principal.  He added by saying, "The beauty of these products is much more than skin deep." 

Contact your JTH representative today to learn more about the directions Artemide is taking the world of commercial lighting in.

Eureka Pop Up Showroom

We were pleased to finish our 2017 series of Pop Up Showrooms by introducing the 30 + new products introduced by Eureka Lighting in their Catalog #9.  After hosting a number of Des Moines based design firms with a presentation exploring what makes Eureka truly unique in the world of decorative lighting, it was easy to see why they remain one of the most vibrant manufacturers under our representation.  Highlights included a new range of recyclable sound absorbing fixtures along with a number of designs featuring OLED light engines.  

Thank you to all of the firms who took time out of their busy end of year schedules to attend.  Look for Pop Up sessions in 2018, focusing on some of our most recognized manufacturers, such as Louis Poulsen and Tech Lighting.

Bega Pop Up Showroom

We were pleased to host over 100 designers over the last month in our Studio Context mock up space for our second Pop Up Showroom.  This temporary showroom featured interior products introduced in the Bega Limburg catalog 5 along with new Bega products introduced during the first quarter of 2017.  We were pleased to see such strong interest from the local architectural, lighting design, and consulting engineering communities in one of our premier manufacturers.  Look for the next Pop Up Showroom in the fall and don't forget the space is available for your mock ups now!  Contact Rob Beaman to reserve your time.

Focal Point/Fluxwerx Pop-Up Showroom

JTH Lighting is pleased to announce the premier of our fourth quarter Pop-Up Showroom, featuring new products from Focal Point Lighting and Fluxwerx.  We've temporarily turned our mock-up studio into a showroom with new suspended and recessed fixtures installed from two of our most innovative manufacturers.  This allows the local design community to see the entire new range from each of these manufacturers installed as they would be on site.  Please contact a member of the JTH staff to arrange your visit soon!
