Raw Light

BenjaminHHeavy Lights

Concrete is one of my favourite materials. To most people it conjures up images of cold and ugly slabs of industrial turf, and is associated with unsightly tenements and dated constructions. I on the other hand see complex textures and grey tones that change with the light – and an array of possibilities in architecture and interiors.

That’s why ever since Benjamin Hubert sent me prototype images of his ‘Heavy Lamps’ earlier this year, I was intrigued as to how they would turn out. He didn’t disappoint – they are stunners! I love the contrast of their smooth concrete surface with their raw and textured underside. The lights are available in the array of shades cement naturally presents itself. The lights are prices at £450 per light watch this space for stockist details.

Benjamin shows us how they are made in his studio…
