Industrial type of lamp made by Sydney based designer Henry Pilcher.
‘Block 2’ is the first of my designs to go into production. The design turns the classic industrial lampshade into a playful, dynamic lighting feature – encasing it in a geometric timber frame. The unique icosahedron frame allows the light to be positioned on one of 20 bases, providing versatile light play in any room. The product’s name rises from the warehouse in which the original shade was found – Block 2.
The frame is a combination of ash timber struts, held together with colour-matched custom aluminium brackets and Chicago screws. The shades are spun in aluminium to replicate the found original and are available in 4 colours: red, blue black and white. Neither a pendant, nor conventional floor lamp, Block 2 can be stacked or arranged in countless ways to suit any space.
