Beacon [shine like a...]

£2,250

Limited edition of 15

This floor standing lamp has been designed to operate both as a standard lamp (when closed), casting light patterns on its surroundings, or as an uplighter (when open), bouncing light off the ceiling for a more ambient effect.

The lamp is 1.9 meters tall and is mounted on a brushed aluminium pole with a concrete and stainless steel base. The lights can be dimmed by adjusting the brass knob mounted at hand height.

Background

This design process began with thoughts of a single stemmed flower such as a tulip or red rose. This was overlaid with ideas of an upright burning match and engineered to open up like a flower or two unclasping hands.

When the main shade is open the six upward pointing spotlights are visible and able to shine their light straight up. These bulbs are mounted on industrial springs and wrapped in hand-beaten copper sheets, giving echoes of stamen in a flower, or flowers within a flame. The gold wires that feed these spotlights have been left visible and interwoven like vines channelling the light up the stem.
