(UK) – Sustainable design duo fuses classic glass elements with minimal metal work to produce sophisticated yet playful lighting range.
With a focus on craftsmanship and quality, the Wharf lighting collection is the latest addition to the growing Harris & Harris product range, designed in house by the Harris & Harris studio.
The starting point for the collection came from experimenting with light through different types of glass, the finish combination options of burnt FSC certified ash with brushed brass or natural ash with blackened steel were chosen for their pleasing contrast with one another. Black woven flex was chosen as the final touch.
“Reeded glass tubes provided a very interesting effect and the semi-transparent nature allows for an attractive LED filament-look lamp to be used,” says Creative Director Alexander Harris. “The beauty of the lamps are the textures expressed through the rich palette of materials we have selected; such as the tactile reeds of the glass and the deep grain of the burnt ash, which we have presented in a contemporary and minimal way.”
As with all products in the Collection, the Wharf lights contribute to the Harris & Harris ‘Designed for Life’ Foundation, helping those without food, water or shelter.
