Product news: British furniture designer Bethan Gray has created a collection of oak and linen lamps for department store John Lewis.
Bethan Gray's Noah light is available as a table lamp, standing lamp or pendant lamp. The base is made of oak and the shade is natural linen.
"I wanted to create a lighting range using solid oak, as it is a beautiful natural material that I love designing with," Gray told Dezeen. "The layered structure came as a way of adding intriguing detail whilst keeping a harmonious and natural pared-back simplicity."
The lamps, along with the rest of the Noah homeware collection, are available from John Lewis.
Other lamps we've featured on Dezeen recently include a pendant lamp made from coiled electrical cord and a floral-patterned glass lamp by Marcel Wanders for Moooi.

Bethan Gray Designs Exclusive Noah Lighting Collection for John Lewis
Bethan Gray is excited to announce her first lighting collection, designed for John Lewis. The clean and contemporary lines of the Noah collection can now be found in a range of lighting products that Bethan has developed exclusively for the John Lewis Design Collective.
A perfect complement to Bethanʼs Noah dining and bedroom ranges, and made from high quality solid oak and natural linen shades, the Noah light is available in table lamp, floor lamp, or pendant options that combine style and functionality and exude a welcoming atmosphere into the home.
The Noah collection was launched in 2011 and is one of John Lewisʼ best-selling dining and bedroom furniture ranges. The on-going collaboration with John Lewis reaffirms Bethanʼs long-standing commitment to creating timeless and beautiful products and the perfect synergy her creations have with Britainʼs best-loved retailer.
Bethan says, "The pared-back simplicity of Noah lighting, using high quality materials and highlighting craftsmanship, resonate particularly with how I love to design. The design itself is associated with longevity and understated luxury.”
The decision to enhance the Noah range with a collection of lights is a natural progression for Bethan, whose long-held passion for lighting is reflected in her own personal collection of antique lamps.
￼In addition to the launch of the Noah light, and to celebrate the first anniversary of the John Lewis Design Collective, Bethan has also updated the Noah dining range.
