Oud Lamp in Black - by Nat Cheshire
The original brass Oud Lamp (with polished crimson marble)
Resident are a little to NZ design what Tom Ford is to fashion. And once again they're representing our scene with world-class style, launching their Connecting Dots collection this week at two major international design fairs - Clerkenwell Design Week in London, and ICFF in New York.
The focus is purely on lighting this time, with 4 new products offered - some are from individual designers, others are collaborations to the power of 8:
There's the Mesh Space pendant (and a wall light version), a floating halo of golden light designed by Resident's newest fellow, lighting designer Flynn Talbot.
Torchon, by Cheshire Architects, is an exquisitely delicate creation of molten glass. Each glass light is individually mouth-blown and entirely unique.
V is a cantilevered wall light, with adjustable wires that hold the light to the wall, so you can hang the brass frame in a variety of ways.
And last but defo not least, the Oud Lamp - a fave from the existing Resident stable - has been released in black, with a perfect sphere of polished white marble (not just a sculptural feature, it's also the switch - turn the marble to turn the light off and on).
