Called Gridlock, the collection of prototypes includes lighting and a low table.
A bare bulb is trapped and held within the metal structure to form the lamp, while a stone top is added to the metal grid to create a table.

Here's some information from Malouin:
During London Design Festival, we will be introducing prototypes called Gridlock. This new range of furniture is inspired by architectural cross bracing, a system used to reinforce structures. However, this collection transposes the grid system to fit within the domestic scale.
The structure itself both encases and showcases elemental materials trapped within. A bare light bulb is caged within its respective void, revealing a lamp, whilst a honed stone slab rests atop the structure, to form a side table.
