The Vancouver-based designer is gaining attention with his folded aluminum light fixtures.

If there is one rule designer Ko Júbilo seems to abide by, it is the Dieter Rams maxim that “good design is as little design as possible.” This idea is expressed in the Vancouver native’s elemental furniture, fixtures, and objects, which range from a partition system composed of repetitive, geometric elements to light fixtures made from single sheets of folded aluminum.

Júbilo credits an early apprenticeship with London powerhouse Barber & Osgerby for challenging him to hone a more critical, iterative process. It also gave him the self-assuredness to set up his own studio in 2015. Júbilo’s growing reputation has led to collaborations with retailers like Adidas, John Elliott, and the Canadian menswear company Haven.
