London Design Week: Hazel Pendant Lights from Sebastian Cox

Christine Chang Hanway October 17, 2012

Launched at Tent 2012 during London Design Week, UK furniture designer Sebastian Cox’s latest pieces find beauty in the twisted, knot-filled branches that he can’t use for his furniture.

While still a student, Cox began researching coppicing, an ancient method of woodland management which takes advantage of the fact that if cut down regularly; many trees resprout straight-growing "rods" from the stump or roots, providing the next crop of usable wood. Each one of his Hazel Pendant Lights is unique and crafted out of the most interesting pieces of hazel grown in the coppice, paired with lampshades made from thin hazel shavings. “Often these pieces include twisted branches from suffocated ivy or clematis growth, which are just too beautiful to leave behind,” says Cox.

Above: Contact Sebastian Cox with specific size requirements and he will source an appropriately sized piece of hazel for your needs: £750 for a five-pendant arrangement.
