Walnut Creek, CA, May 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Walnut Creek, CA, May 1, 2021 — YDesign Group, the leading online destination for modern and contemporary design lighting, announced an exclusive online partnership with Astro Lighting, bringing its limited-edition Capsule Collection to the U.S. on and only.

A creative collaboration between Astro Lighting Co-founder and Design Director James Bassant and Senior Designer Riley Sanders, the Capsule Collection presents three designs embodying Astro’s ideology that good design demands simplicity. Each piece is minimal yet functional and produced with exacting attention to detail.

“Design to me is about trying to reach that point of clarity when a product is as perfect as I can make it; it’s a feeling of purity and simplicity,” said Bassant.

“We are so excited to be partnering with Astro Lighting to offer consumers this stunning collection,” said Patricia Kittredge, VP of Merchandising at YDesign Group. “This collection demonstrates Astro’s continued leadership in sleek, timeless and simply elegant designs—and we are honored to be the exclusive retailer for these products.”

The Astro Lighting Capsule Collection includes:

  • Orb – An elegant wall light featuring a glowing sphere at one end of a curved arm and an adjustable magnifying mirror at the other. Designed with functionality in mind, the Orb is intended primarily to be placed next to a bathroom mirror. Designed by James Bassant and available at and

  • Halftone – A striking wall light composed of an etched pattern on a clear acrylic disc. Its light radiates from the center, producing a compelling glowing ring when illuminated.
