In a previous post, we revealed the first look at Itero, a new collection marking a step in a new direction for Heathfield. In the second of three parts, we’re pleased to reveal a further six pieces.
The Itero Collection is about evolution. It’s about tactility, earthiness and slowing down. It takes its cues from the Japanese principle of Wabi Sabi, of finding joy in imperfection.
The Elara Table Lamp encapsulates this perfectly. Its handsome ceramic base is full of little craters and dimples, each revealing the story of how it was made. The process of producing both the Elara and Ayda sees the ceramics finished at a very high temperature in the kiln. This causes the material to rapidly heat and, like little bubbles bursting, forms a texture that up-close looks like
the face of the moon.
The Kobi lamp is another example. Coming as a floor, table and double pendant light, the Italian calacatta gold marble was carefully honed into a matt surface, a departure from the high-gloss finish that many expect from marble. It’s also the result of closely examining each slab, ensuring the veins form a beautiful composition across each finished piece.
