(UK) – New from sustainable designers Harris & Harris, is the Chalford Family of decorative lamps.
A low-impact lighting family with 1960s and 70s Italian influences, featuring terracotta and opal glass, the Chalford pieces are bold graphical shapes influenced by the Italian industrial designers Vico Magistretti, Joe Colombo and Achille Castiglioni.
The lights are named after a small village in the Cotswolds, close to where Harris & Harris founder Alexander Harris grew up. The family comprises two sizes of table light wall light and pendant for both residential and commercial settings.
Hand made to order in Englad, the group of lights feature bases made from environmentally friendly slip-cast terracotta with white glaze ombre effect. A warm and soothing light emits from the dome-shaped matt opal glass shade, containing low energy filament style Tala LED light sources. In the case of the table lights, a woven power flex exits the base with an inline switch.
As with all products in the collection, every sale contributes to the Harris & Harris ‘Designed for Life Foundation’, which helps support charities providing for those without the basic needs for food, water and shelter.
