Called Container, the lamp comprises two large ceramic parts held together under the tension of an injection-moulded silicon band wrapped round a spout-like protrusion, eradicating the need for any glue or screws.

A coloured flex escapes from the end of this component and matches the hue of the band.

"Container looks at utilising the ceramic to both contain the electronic lighting components and produce a soft, reflected illumination from the interior glazed surface to light the table or desk beneath," says Hubert.

"The forms are driven by a sympathetic design language and construction in tune with earthenware production," he adds.
