collaborating with furniture brand de la espada, british designer benjamin hubert has developed a collection of furniture pieces which features seating, table and lighting designs. included within this range of interior products which utilizes the skills and knowledge of artisan craftsman, is a series of thin-walled marble pendant lights called ‘quarry’. the hand-turned shades are produced with a roughly finished interior which adds texture and describes the story of stone production. the lamps utilize the natural stone’s translucent properties to diffuse the lights and reveal its veining. the traditional material is offset by the use of LEDs which allow the large hand-turned internal cavity to remain open and uncluttered. AKFD manages the factories the lamps are produced in, ensuring that they are made under fair working terms and safer conditions.
