Entry DescriptionThe Arbour Linear light, is a continual timber solid, formed to unite space and celebrate the beauty of the natural. Created by the divergence of two curves that flow along and around the product. The body of the pendant is machined from various solid timbers, allowing the more technical aspects of the light to be hidden internally, leaving the external form pure to the eye.
Arbour is a linear timber light that creates the perfect downward luminosity. The subtle curves of the Solid Walnut, Rock Maple, or Oak marries perfectly with the hard edges of the hand-polished champagne anodised aluminium elements. As with all products developed by the studio, context plays an important role in defining the overall outcome. Arbour’s intriguing form aims to accent interiors, providing a natural focal area for bringing people together.
Working in partnership with local manufacturers, utilising a 5-axis machining was key to the success of Arbour, it allowed us to explore a more complex form which we could not have otherwise achieved using traditional timber processes.
Arbour’s unique aesthetic allow the product to feel at home in many interior spaces while also supplying a focal point.
