CUPOLA FLOOR LAMP
The juxtaposition of two incongruous elements, industrial metal angular frame with organic timber sphere. It is the interplay of opposites…straight and round, natural and man-made, hard and soft. The two forms sit together in harmonious tension.
Shades are hand-turned from a single piece of naturally fallen UK sourced spalted beech* foraged from wood and field. Each piece is unique, it will have its own particular spalting pattern and grain which tells us a story of its history. The bulb emits a warm glow accentuating the timbers natural properties.
Frames in hand-patinated blackened steel, satin brass or dark bronze.
*Spalted Beech: Spalting is the process by which certain fungi grow on dead or fallen
trees. After colonizing the wood via travelling up the wood cells from the ends or from
broken off branches it leaves a pattern. The process takes 2 to 3 years to reach the ideal
stage to cut & season the timber.
