The Whole Story
The pared back elegance of a seashell inspires the sculptural functionality of the Conus Range. This range of lights with a similar aesthetic, based on a sculptural form, was developed to address specific lighting needs. The range comprises nine lights including desk lamps, a floor lamp and pendant lights. Each piece suits a variety of furnishing styles and can be finished in a range of timbers and other materials to complement existing colour schemes. The Conus Range provides engaging solutions from directed task lights to ambient mood illumination.
A combination of timber and metal each light in the Conus Range is hand-finished and assembled to ensure both quality and artistic integrity. Strong-back, a traditional boat building technique, allows the custom-made, laser cut 2mm plywood to maintain the form when held in tension around the powder coated mild steel components. Each light is finished with natural oils and waxes to enhance the timber’s characteristics.
Lights in the Conus Range are designed as heirloom pieces and sustainability was a key design driver. Local, responsibly sourced timber is used in manufacturing the veneers and the use of digital nesting programs has enabled the minimization of wastage. LED bulbs are supplied.
