Rustic Lighting from a Modern Design Duo

BY Alexa Hotz

Last year during London Design Week, Christine caught up with husband-and-wife design duo Russel Pinch and Oona Bannon of Pinch Design to discuss armoires. This year it’s their lighting that we’re coveting, in particular the copper, banana fiber, and linen Soren Light shade.

N.B. Russel Pinch will be discussing the opportunities and issues pertaining to design entrepreneurs as part of the Designers Block Listen Watch Share seminar at The London Design Festival tomorrow, September 19th.

Above: The Soren Light has a strong copper frame, a structure that can be seen from the outside when the lamp is illuminated; £610.

Above: The light has a bulb requirement of an E27 or a screw-in bulb with a maximum of 100w (US fittings are available on request).

Above: A shade made from a banana fiber and linen mix fits over the copper construction.

For more on Pinch and Bannon, see their work in Almost Bespoke Armoires from last year and Pinch Design in London back in 2009. This isn’t the first time we’ve admired fabric pendant lights: see DIY: Rustic Linen Lampshades from Italy and DIY: Koushi Lamp by Mark Eden Schooley.
