“I use industrial technology but not with a focus on mass production but rather to batch and limited editions. I labour over every detail, and this brings a sense of the handmade back into my work”.

    Sooo Italian, although the punched letters kill it.

    i luv the punch letter but the construction is just a little amatuer. need more refining! espeacilly the screw that hold the lamp shade together!!

    I was thinking the same thing about the die-cut.

    I love the design, would be quite happy to have one on my desk.

    But laser cutting your name into the base and "limited edition"…….Fail

  • jordantheperson

    these are smart. so easy to produce and visually exciting. anodized aluminum looks amazing and with those bright of colors.

    I think to add to Kerby's design recipe I would look towards Barber Osgerby's Iris Tables.

    Difficult to get a proper impression of the lamps. I think they should be seen in an interior of a cafe or similar environment
