The Spargo Lamp is a large floor Lamp, this collection of work represents experiments in using concrete within my work. It’s material I’ve wanted to intergrate into a few projects, I feel the combination of oak and concrete is very honest and appealing. Using such heavy duty materials means your producing products to last, which is an important part of my process.
A big reason for developing these lamps was due to a desire to use the very traditional craft of woodturning in a very contemporary context. Although the turned forms are very traditional, the way the lamp is constructed gives it a very modern quality. This was also a reason for wanting to combine cast concrete with turned oak.
The form of these lights is definitely inspired by the very animated nature of the classic spun aluminium desk lamp, such as an anglepoise. A classic example of this is the pixar lamp, I wanted these pieces to seem curiously animated in a similar way.
