"We aim to make furniture and accessories that are familiar and unpretentious and the simplicity of Workstead suits our aesthetic," said Another Country founder Paul de Zwart.
The collection comprises a range of chandeliers, wall and floor, table and pendant lamps.
Workstead created the lights largely to meet their own purposes, combining fixtures from old lamps to create new chandeliers.
"The collection came about very organically," Workstead co-founder Stefanie Brechbuehler told Dezeen. "Robert, my husband and business partner, loves and collects old light fixtures and has always tinkered with them. The tinkering led to creating a fixture for our own needs, the Industrial Chandelier."
The Industrial Chandelier is formed from a series of perpendicular steel rods with bulbs on the ends, which are connected with screw clasps. These can be unscrewed to rearrange the elements into different forms.
"One of the main focuses of our lighting is its ability to transform," said Brechbuehler. "It can be configured in many ways to better fit the needs of the user or to be more site specific."
A version of the chandelier with bent arms and cast-iron articulated joints also features in the collection.
The Brass Pendant is comprised of a disk that can rotate 360 degrees on the end of a thin vertical rod.
Mounted on two adjoining walls in the corner of a room, a bent steel element provides an armature for a cantilevered arm to create the Corner Lamp.
A crane-like profile defines the Floor Lamp, which has an adjustable arm and an elliptical shade covering the bulb. It is held steady by a heavy cast-iron base.
The Shaded table and floor lamps are held up on two vertical stems that can be moved up and down to adjust the height. Each features the same cylindrical-shaped fabric shade.
A pendant version of this design is also available and can be used to illuminate areas off-centre from its ceiling rose.
Workstead's collection was on show alongside pieces by Another Country at the Design Factory exhibition in the Farmiloe Building during London's Clerkenwell Design Week, which concluded yesterday.
Another Country recently opened a showroom in London's Marylebone district, dedicated to displaying the brand's products.
