‘Flight’ pendant lamp inspired by contemporary architecture and the primitive hexagon. "I wanted this lamp to be super clean & contemporary..the symmetric angles the shards create as the lamp spins through 360 degrees is stunning."

Flat sheets of opal white acrylic, (matte one side/other side glossy/reflective). The lamp is suspended & supported by an adjustable 2m stainless steel high tensile wire kit. No weight is placed upon the bulb or ceiling cable.

Available with solid brass or stainless steel fixtures & our standard adjustable wire hanging kit. Each lamp is handmade in our workshop in Wales, UK. 

Flight lamp details:

  • 640mm (H) x 350mm (W) x 200mm (D)
  • Handmade in UK
  • 3mm Perspex® white opal acrylic
  • Available with solid brass/stainless steel fittings

‘Centric’ pendant lamp inspired by the famous Kandinsky 'Upper' 1929 painting. Which I viewed on a recent visit to Italy. "This design is based on modernism... which I'm a big fan of..I hope I have done it justice!"

The lamp is made from flat sheets of opal white acrylic, (matte one side/other side glossy/reflective). The lamp is suspended & supported by an adjustable 2m stainless steel high tensile wire kit. No weight is placed upon the bulb or ceiling cable.

Available with solid brass or stainless steel fixtures & our standard adjustable wire hanging kit. 

Centric lamp: 

  • 495mm (H) x 390mm (W) x 175mm (D)
  • Handmade in UK 
  • 3mm Perspex® white opal acrylic 
  • Available with solid brass/stainless steel fittings 
  • 2m Stainless steel adjustable wire hanging kit 
  • Shipped flat-packed 
  • Self assembly (use your hands - see video
  • Either use your own cable/bulb or purchase ours (extra)

Centric & Flight lamp fittings are available in two finishes: brass or stainless steel. Both metal surfaces are lightly brushed by hand, we love the patina this technique achieves. 

A questionnaire will be sent out after the project ends where you can add extras to your order.

Electrics pack (£25): (optional extra)

  • E27/26 Bakelite bulb holder with cable retainer, black 
  • Black metal ceiling rose & bracket (made in Italy) 
  • 1.5m Black PVC cable

Our lamps are supplied with our standard adjustable wire hanging kit only (there are no electrics). So you are free to use your existing ceiling cable/bulb or purchase your own. We do offer an optional electrics pack in black pictured above. 

A questionnaire will be sent out after the project ends where you can add extras to your order. 

Bulbs

We recommend using an LED bulb (60W equivalent). We have tested and fitted a bulb up to 120mm in diameter with our lamps. Please view our video to see how to change/add your bulb to our lamps...its very simple!

***PLEASE NOTE WE RECOMMEND ANY ELECTRICAL WORK/INSTALLATION BE CARRIED OUT BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN***

Packaging/Shipping

Our lamps will be packaged and shipped flat packed in double walled cardboard. We intend to use DHL as our international courier & Parcel force as our UK/EU courier. You will receive full parcel tracking information on dispatch. 

There is protective plastic film on each side of the acrylic, peel this off before fitting your lamps.

Assembly

We will also be uploading an 'assembly' video to YouTube during the project for each lamp design. 

In the video at the top of this page we have demonstrated how easy it is to assemble our Centric art lamp the Flight uses the same method. You do not need any tools to assemble our lamps, even the cable hanging kit is adjusted by hand.

Customs/Duty

Please note you will be responsible for any customs duty/charges. We withhold the right to change any product details on this page.

Risks and challenges

I have been designing for over 20 years for major brands and business on various design projects. I also single-handedly built & ran a successful international eCommerce retail website for over 10 years. So i am used to the whole process from sourcing materials to shipping globally.

I have been working with University of Wales Trinity St David to develop the lights and have already teamed up with a manufacturer less that 10 miles from our doorstep who has vast experience in laser cutting and engineering.

I have created multiple prototypes of each light, each time I have improved the design and simplified the assembly of the light..I have thought about nothing else for 6 months!

I have already dedicated close to 6 months to this project and a large part of that was spent ironing out any problems that may arise with manufacturing. I am ready to scale up production if we sell more than our target.
