Staddle explores the interplay of light and material. LEDs illuminate the oak from which the lamp is made, revealing the beauty of the material. In turn, the lamp imbues a warmth to the surroundings. The intention was to evoke the atmosphere experienced in a wood-panelled room.
The form bears an unwitting resemblance to staddle stones - stone columns used to elevate granaries above ground level. Unaware of their former function, I recall seeing these odd forms as a child on visits to the Cotswolds, where redundant stones were used as garden ornaments.
