So in love with this lamp

Posted in Design by Shannon South on April 2, 2012

Brass has suddenly become super trendy with design objects as well as fashion. It seems like every jewelry designer these days is now working with the material. I’ve even designed a couple of bags using brass detailing here and here.

I just came across this gorgeous hand crafted lamp. The Stanley brass pendant lamp by Original BTC is made in Birmingham, England using the very old technique of metal spinning. Each indentation is hammered, one at a time, by hand to create a gorgeous texture. The use of this very old traditional material suddenly looks totally contemporary with its minimalist shape and large size. I just love it and I think I need to start saving my copper for one of these beauties.
