The new Rosa collection from Marc Wood Studio has been designed to showcase the opaque beauty of natural marble. Featuring a singular pendant light that can form a tiered chandelier, the design incorporates a backlit Rosa Aurora marble disc that emits a soft, warm illumination, pierced by the natural veining of the stone. The double-faced LED base creates an additional glow with reflections and light play framed in a crystal glass sphere.
Marc Wood Studio is a British lighting brand with a difference. Founded by designer Marc Wood in 2014, the studio creates contemporary designs that champion world-class heritage craft. With a network of global partnerships, including glass-blowers in the Czech Republic, stonemasons from Portugal and metal engineers from the UK., cross-cultural collaboration is at the core of the brand’s mission.
Applying a contemporary aesthetic, the studio reframes the processes of skills developed over centuries by craftspeople, to create luxury lighting collections that can be enjoyed by both present and future generations. The timeless designs favour a simple, elegant aesthetic that remove unnecessary details and celebrate the materiality. Wood explains: “When designing it’s important to distil a concept down to its essential characteristics to ensure that the message is as clear as possible. The paradox is that achieving simplicity can often be the most difficult thing of all.”
