Wrecking Ball Lamp and Crane Lamp by Studio Job

Artists Studio Job will exhibit lamps suspended from bronze models of a crane and a wrecking ball at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London later this week.

The pieces were commissioned by the gallery and will be shown alongside Studio Job's new furniture from the Industry Series (see our earlier story).

The work will be on show 20 March – 8 May 2010.

Specially designed for the gallery, Crane Lamp is a floor-standing bronze structure. An enforced cord runs through the core to a hanging light and shade. Indicative of Studio Job’s fine attention to detail, small bulbs light the boom point from which the jib hangs. An ancient invention, the crane has a long history of industrial use. Here, it has been miniaturized into an ornamental design piece.

Exclusive to the Carpenters Workshop Gallery, the newly designed Wrecking Ball Lamp, cast from solid bronze, further explores the theme of industry. The lamp showcases the subtle humour and attention to detail that defines Studio Job’s design ethos.
