Introducing Array

Our ability to work, to socialize and to relax is all influenced by the quality of light, and Array puts the transformative power of light in your hands.

Color + Brightness Control

Array is a modern collection of ambient LED lamps that offers an unparalleled level of color and brightness control. There are 2 versions of Array, White Spectrum and Color Spectrum. White Spectrum models allow you to fine tune your light color from a cool white, which is ideal for reading and working, to a warm amber light, which is great for dinner parties or winding down at the end of the day. Color Spectrum models allow you to set a more specific mood with either bold pops or soothing blends of colored light. Once the color is dialed in, both versions allow for dimming from 100% - 5% brightness.

Fire Road is a small design + manufacturing company dedicated to creating timeless, functional and innovative home goods. Array is our most ambitious product yet! We've already made dozens of prototypes, refined every detail of the design, and engineered the collection to be production ready, and now we need your help bring it to market. Your support will go towards purchasing production tooling, covering certification costs and satisfying the minimum order quantities for the first production run. With your help, together we can bring the Array Light into the world and bring the transformative power of light into your home.

Craftsmanship + Technology  

Array is designed to be simple, sophisticated and integrate seamlessly into your home. The expertly crafted wood frame provides a warm, furniture-quality feel and the inset LEDs distill the beauty of architectural lighting into a modern product. The timeless, tactile aluminum control knob makes adjusting the brightness and color effortless and intuitive.

Project Timeline

Process + Prototypes

We've been working hard over the last 6 months designing and refining the Array light. There were many versions that failed and we learned an incredible amount along the way. Below is a small taste of the work that has already happened behind the scenes to bring the concept from sketch to 3D model to prototype to a production ready design. 

About Designer and Founder Andrew Perkins

With a background in modern furniture and lighting design, Andrew brings a minimalist design aesthetic, a tactile sense for materials and extensive production experience to each endeavor.

"All things pass through the lens of perception, and light is a powerful tool to transform the world around you." - Andrew Perkins

Risks and challenges

At Fire Road we value the way a product is made as much as how the product looks. Based on our manufacturing experience and expertise, we are confident that we can deliver the Array Light on schedule. Having successfully developed and produced 7 products in the last 2 years, including 1 kickstarter campaign that we delivered 2 months early, we are excited to take the next step to produce the Array Collection. We know that there are always production challenges to overcome, especially when developing an innovative lighting product, but we are an experienced and motivated team of designers and engineers that understands how to work with expert manufacturers and maintain high quality standards. If production volumes increase beyond what is feasible in the timeline, or we encounter significant unexpected production issues, we promise to communicate early, honestly and often.
