Product: Decode London Heavy Light Pendants
Designer: Benjamin Hubert
Retailer: Decode London

The Heavy Light collection includes three sizes of pendants, a wall and a desk light and demonstrates an approach to design where an everyday material is used in an unconventional context. Heavy Lights offer a fresh perspective on concrete- usually considered an industrial material- and challenge perceptions of its use within domestic and commercial environments.
Manufactured in two different grey finishes as well as off-white and (new for 2013) a terracotta finish, each concrete shade is individually slip-cast and left inverted in the mould to dry for a number of days. During this process, random air pockets and veining develop on the interior of the shade. These markings vary from one shade to the next and create unique and irregular marble- like patterns, which contrast with the shade’s smooth exterior.

DESIGN : Benjamin Hubert (2008)
