When I was attending the LivingKitchen show early this year, I met Frank Koschembar, who, along with Gerd Pfarré, has created a most fantastic magazine, Illuminator. It is devoted completely and passionately to the most elusive of expressive media, light. The publication, which measures 38 inches x 27 inches [that means a two-page spread is a glorious, visually stunning 76 x 54], takes both space and time to read—not an insignificant statement in this era of ever-smaller electronic informational devices. The second issue is out now. lightingpress.com
