Stellar Works unveils new lighting collection
The first complete lighting collection by the brand is designed by OEO Studio and Space Copenhagen
This Autumn, Stellar Works will unveil its first ever substantial lighting collection designed with some of its most prominent collaborators. New pieces will be presented by long-term collaborators OEO Studio and Space Copenhagen. Stellar Works has become globally renowned for its design acumen, bridging Asian design sensibilities and craft with European aesthetics. The series of new lighting is no exception with three pieces taking influence from Japan specifically.
Space Copenhagen’s Yama derives its name from the Japanese word for ‘mountain’ and its shape is inspired by Japan’s mountainous terrain. Yama is a collection of pendant lamps featuring a clear geometric cone form in a range of different materials that each set a different tone. The construction becomes the decorative feature, resulting in an honest and simple expression that lends itself to a multitude of uses from repetition or a sculptural feature, in bigger spaces, to classic and simple accent lighting.
Space Copenhagen’s second lighting collection – Haro – is a delicate and evocative lamp collection, featuring an industrial motif. Haro is named after the Japanese word for ‘halo’ and comprises a refined, floating opal glass shade poised on a slender matte powder coated metal base. Available in a multitude of configurations, Haro creates a glowing, ambient layer of light suited for a residential or commercial space.
On the design of their lighting collections, Space Copenhagen says: “In principle, any given piece of furniture is embedded with a functional program, which we all instinctively recognise and acknowledge. We try to be attentive and respond to the little ways these typologies evolve over time, how uses might morph or change, while also working towards the piece having a certain sculptural quality. The process is not linear, but rather, one informs the other continuously.”
OEO Studio has designed an extension to Mūn, a lighting collection which juxtaposes the masculine and industrial with the feminine and poetic. The name Mūn, meaning moon in Japanese, is directly linked to the subtle soft curved shade that has been the inspiration for the name of the collection. Mūn, takes shape in the form of a desk lamp, floor lamp, small pendant and large pendant. The Mūn rechargeable lantern is fitted with a sturdy silicon strap that makes it easy and flexible to use around the home and garden.
For the design of Mūn, OEO Studio drew inspiration from analogue experiences and rituals, such as playing vinyl on a record player or taking photos with a camera. Mūn seeks to echo this thinking with its subtle bent metal arm, iconic sculptural base and the simple mechanical joint between the arm and base. It offers great function, combined with tactility and a celebration of the mechanism.
