Earlier this week Ross Gardam unveiled his new contemporary lighting collection at ICFF New York May 19-22 at the Jacob K. Javits Center. The award-winning studio introduced new versions of the Nebulae Chandelier and debut the sculptural and Brutalist inspired Hemera Desk Lamp .
“I’m excited to share our latest work with A+D community in the U.S. The new horizontal configurations of the Nebulae Chandelier is designed to illuminate large formatted spaces, even when turned off, it has a beautiful motion to the glass elements as they diffuse each other and the surrounding environment,” said Ross Gardam. He adds “ Hemera is an ode to the beauty of natural materials in its purest and simplest form. I wanted to create the appearance that the material emitted light naturally, or that the stone itself was glowing”
A key selection of Ross Gardam’s lighting range was also featured at the show including the Polar Wall and Desk Light, Ora Desk Lamp , Oak Pendant, and Nebulae Wall Light .
The New Nebulae Chandelier
The new versions of the Nebulae Chandelier will be available in horizontal configurations and feature pearl discs. The geometric machined form is coupled with the fluid glass discs, the layering of glass represents a highly original exploration of diffusion and creates unique light dispersion.
The Nebulae collection is inspired by the diffusion of both natural and LED light. The collection consists of the Nebulae Chandelier, Nebulae Wall Light, and Nebulae Pendant.
Hemera Desk Lamp
Handcrafted with Elba marble, Hemera is a stunning piece with two solid circular volumes intersecting with no overt visible light source, creating a striking desktop monolith device refined for functionality. Hemera is reminiscent of brutalist architecture–powerful in its simplicity of form, it’s the latest addition and was designed for the NEW VOLUMESTM collection.
Ora Desk Lamp
The form of the Ora Desk Lamp is characterized by its unique orbiting shade. A clever magnetic joint allows the user to tilt the shade, directing the warm glow and then cycle the shade around the body. The hidden magnetic joint helps Ora to snap back into the horizontal position and a new poly ring provides a softer, smoother rotating action.
Polar Wall Light
The circular motif used throughout the Polar collection defines its minimal operative form. The product uses a unique hinge joint allowing the disc to pivot up or down, softly directing the light output. The Polar Wall Light has the ability to cleverly manipulate light and shadow within a space.
Polar Table Lamp
Reflection of light and shadow. Polar directs light within space while also having the ability to create a circular light void. The user pivots the circular disc around the light source located in the body. A circular motif is used not only in the shade but repeated at various junctions on the base, defining its minimal form. The ceramic base is handcrafted using traditional slip casting and the surface is bisque fired and presented unglazed.
