These delicate exterior pendant lights were designed to offer the client a warm ambient glow, similar in feel to candle light, whilst utilising overhead suspension points and keeping maintenance to a minimum. The hand spun brass dish catches the light from a single weatherproof LED and casts it gently downwards onto the pathway and dining area below. The result is a warm functional wash of light, creating a relaxed and magical atmosphere which can only be achieved with a careful balance of indirect lighting and beautiful detailing.
An iteration of an existing chandelier was commissioned for temporary installation in a sweeping stairwell location in this early twentieth century mansion. The close proximity of the public, and the structure of the beautiful cupola ceiling informed a design of striking scale and density; suspended beyond the reach of visitors yet with practical consideration of the functional requirements of the piece.
Commissioned for a property with limited architectural lighting control, these lamps were designed to offer the client flexibility in the light levels and control over the atmosphere created in each room. Material choices were informed by the clients love of the English countryside and passion for sailing. A solid oak base supports an elegant steel and glass framework, encasing a single Squirrel cage bulb. These bulbs themselves were historically used as ships navigation lights due to the expanse of the filament structure; which is beautifully highlighted by the inbuilt touch sensitive dimming facility.
Inspired by the gentle beauty of reflected light, these sconces are one element of a bespoke collection designed around a series of hand spun brass dishes. The client's wish for a bespoke solution to give their garden a sense of magic and drama of an evening was the starting point for creating these wall sconces which utilise reflected light from a single weatherproof LED. The brass gives a subtle warmth to the ambient light which radiates from the dish, while the immaculately handcrafted detailing creates a striking feature of the sconces themselves.
An invitation to create a signature piece for this flagship restaurant allowed the artist to propose a new installation concept for the space. A bespoke ceiling structure was created to support the piece, whilst detailed concept development with engineers and fabricators resulted in the creation of 1800 individually crafted diffusers, in an anodised finished selected for its sensitivity to the timeless detailling of the interior.
Inspired by the multitude of options afforded by the modular design of the original Oak lamp; this collection was developed to allow for fully customised variations on a theme.
Discrete magnetic fixings offer the option of matt white steel framework combined with hand frosted glass panels.
Bare oak is ebonised to create a stunning black grained finish to the base, in contrast to the warm amber glow of the filament.
A polished brass plate adds multiple internal reflections to the clear glass case surrounding the filament bulb, whilst offering a discrete nod to the nautical inspiration for the original design.
All components are fully interchangeable, and material selection is inspired by the vision of the client and the aesthetics of the environment. For enquiries about these lamps please contact us.
Devonshire Dining COLLECTION
With a dining space which flows from inside to out, the client's wish was to bring subtle elements of the exterior lighting into the interior space. Utilising the same hand spun brass dishes as the exterior fittings, a set of table top lighting and candle wall sconces was created, allowing the use of living flames alongside the warmth of the spun brass.
The candle sconce holds a single flame, perfectly centred on the curves of the dish, at the tip of a hand formed stem.
The bowl cradles a single flame at the base of the brass dish, which itself sits perfectly into a hand turned Ash bowl, concealing the reservoir of fuel below.
Using only bio lamp oil to power the flames, both the sconce and candle bowl emit a beautiful ambient light which is amplified by the optics of the dish, while keeping the environmental impact to a minimum.
A collaboration with Mustapha Chaouai, one of the artisan leaders from Morocco's first national co-operative Anou, presented an exciting opportunity to create a collection of lanterns designed to embody a unique personal heritage; a combination of weaving a metal work.
Constructed from steel and sabra, a sustainably sourced vegetable silk thread native to Morocco, the forms of the lanterns were directly informed by a single character from the Tifinagh alphabet; Aza, which represents ‘freedom’ and is recognised as the symbol of the Amazigh people.
We look forward to sharing further images and details on the project shortly...
An exterior chandelier commissioned by the Rothschild Foundation as the entrance to a winter light trail, this piece was created in collaboration with five hundred children. A custom pergola was created from which to suspend five hundred individual fibre optic cables, the ends of which were finished with a single crystal glass bead and a laser cut oak leaf form. The names and hopes for the future of each child were engraved by hand onto each leaf, with the text highlighted by the pop of light from each individual crystal orb. The chandelier was created to symbolise hope, and the potential of the next generation working together to achieve positive change.
The detailled design of a feature installation in the main hall of this Grade II listed property required respectful consideration of key sightlines to the spectacular architectural features in the space. Clear communication with the artist and the wider project team ensured the creation of a stunning ethereal piece, which adhered to the constraints of working within a property of such historical significance.
With an open brief to repurpose a number of antique exterior fittings for use as statement interior fixtures, the composition, materials, and condition of these striking pieces were assessed to allow sensitive restoration and refurbishment. Through considered detailing and an appreciation of the inherent symbolic importance of these items; a set of beautiful functional luminaries was bought back to life.
A new piece inspired by a desert landscape demanded in-depth understanding of the artist's concept and sensitivity to the overall vision for the piece, combined with an appreciation of logistical constraints of working within a glass house environment. Considered specification of the lighting technology, and uncompromising material selection ensured a spectacular piece was created to maximise the impact of the changing ambient light levels in the space.
