Cast lamp 2020

Cast lamp is a table lamp that draws on the industrial heritage of cast iron in the North East of England. The lamp was developed in collaboration with William Lane & Sons foundry - whose history goes back to the industrial revolution - as a way to celebrate this neglected material and heritage. This is reflected in the form of the lamp; for example, in the way the scalloped fluting on the base acknowledges the classical references often employed in cast iron structures. While there is a heft and raw materiality to the lamp, it emits a surprisingly intimate light.
