The result is a dynamic and vibrant collection, utilising a diverse range of materials and drawing upon dramatic, jewel-like tones. Brendan explains some of the key influences behind the range, “The collection draws influence from jewellery, featuring faceted and fluid forms with details reminiscent of ring settings and fine jewellery boxes. Exploration of forms in ceramic, glorious handblown glass and custom laid timber creates a diversity of materials, accented by the warmth of brassy golds”.

“The collection has a sense of refinement and elegance with finer details that, like a piece of jewellery, are intriguing on closer inspection. A sense of heightened luxury is given through considered finishes, stately proportion and detailed plinths on which the bases proudly rest”.

“The range aims to create feature pieces that define their interior surroundings, yet offer an accessibility and versatility. The intent was to create a collection that is unique yet highly approachable, inspiring people to place these pieces prominently and proudly within their rooms: the essence of decorative lighting. The forms would equally suit transitional or contemporary interiors.”

The range also provides a seamless continuation from Brendan’s approach to interior design as a whole, “I do tend create interiors that are resolved and lean towards ‘contemporary formal’ where everything has its place and each element has a relationship, directly or indirectly, to the other” explains Brendan, “Often refined and orderly, they are layered with decorative furnishings and artwork that range from traditional to abstract contemporary depending on the client. My interiors typically have visual highs amongst moments of visual quietness. You need those to establish the tension and so it becomes a cohesive yet energetic experience. I like a room-scape to move beyond being “even”- it should have a drama that uplifts you. To me, this should also apply to lighting or other products”.
