Milan 2012: Auckland company Resident show their new collection of furniture at MOST in Milan this week, including their Bing pendant lamp that's made of white clay from Matauri Bay in New Zealand. Watch this movie on Dezeen Screen »
The movie above by Special Problems shows how the Bing pendant is sculpted by hand then finished with a bone-coloured crackle glaze.
Following their inaugural collection shown at designjunction during the London Design Festival in September, the new series also includes a table-top version of the Spar floor lamp from their first collection, inspired by sailing masts.
Oud is a cantilevered brass LED desk lamp that's operated by turning a marble sphere resting on its base.
The Tangerine chair and Studio chair complete the presentation.
MOST takes place in Milan's Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia from 17 to 22 April and the press preview starts at 3pm today. Download the free map and guide here and see all our stories about MOST here.

Here's some more information from Resident:
Designed by Gidon Bing this is a small cracked ceramic pendant. Measures aprox 140mm wide x 110mm tall. It is made to be shown in numbers either in a line or a cluster. The BIng Pendant combines a modern form with classical organic detail. They are handcrafted and refined using traditional sculpting techniques, using pure white China Clay from Matauri Bay, NZ. The Bing Pendant is finely finished with a bone colored fine crackle glaze and charcoal oxides. Handmade in New Zealand.
The Studio Chair is a simple, geometrically precise chair that has a small footprint and subtle curves that create a comfortable situation for sitting. Formally the chair refers to a typology of common, robust wood chairs originating in Switzerland. The Studio Chair ships flat-packed and is easily assembled and just as quickly knocked-down for storage or changing configurations.
Designed by Jason Whiteley this is part of the Studio family. The stool comes in 3 heights, ships flatpacked and is easily assembled. Made from Birch it can be purchased in Natural, Black and White.
Spar Junior takes the same iconic geometry of the Spar Floor light and scales it into a cantilevered table light. The spun aluminium shade pivots on two axis, allowing light to be directed as desired. Available in both white with black cable, and black with red cable.
Oud is a desk lamp. Its single, polished brass armature follows a continuous and unbalanced line, concealing all the mechanisms of a warm LED lamp. A sphere of polished crimson marble rests on a brass leg: its diameter is fitted to the palm, a quarter-turn operates the internal switch, and its weight – pushed off the axis of rotation by a skew in the channel - counterbalances the projection of the lamp.
This clean lined stackable wooded chair is ideal for the home, hospitality and commercial environments. Available in three finishes of natural oak, white wash and black stain it's light weight look and subtle form offer a refined look to complement most tables.
