Dezeen Showroom: Melbourne-based designer Ross Gardam has created the Arbour linear light constructed from solid pieces of hardwood over two metres long.

The Arbour linear light is the latest piece created by Australian furniture and lighting designer Gardam. Each pendant lamp is created from a 2,200-millimetre piece of timber that has a curved profile designed to unite interior spaces.

"As with all products we work on in the studio, context plays an important role in defining the overall outcome," said Gardam. "Arbour’s intriguing form aims to accent interiors, providing a natural focal area for bringing people together."

Like all of Gardam's products, the Arbour pendant light is made in Melbourne by local craftsmen. The lighting mechanism is contained within a hand-polished champagne anodised aluminium shell, which is surrounded by a timber body that is available in solid walnut, maple, or oak.

The light is available in either with a 2,200-millimetre timber body or a shorter 1,850-millimetre body. Both sizes are machined to ensure a precise finish.

"Working in partnership with our manufacturer, utilising five-axis machining was key to the success of Arbour, it allowed us to explore a more complex form which we could not achieve using traditional timber processes," said Gardam.
