Lodge Collection is a minimalist lighting series created by Brooklyn-based studio Workstead. The collection is characterized by a series of structural wooden frames that support a variety of straightforward lighting functions including a chandelier, pendant, and sconce. The interaction between the wood and metal materials suggests a counterpoint between structure and network.
The designers referenced early minimal examples of Danish design, which often incorporated wooden components into lighting. While those examples were usually more sculptural, they designed an elemental take on the sconce, pendant, and chandelier utilizing wood, brass, and steel components.
The first prototypes of the collection were incorporated into the Lobby of the Rivertown Lodge, a hotel Workstead designed in Hudson, New York. After completing the project, they continued to prototype additional versions of the fixture to offer a variety of functions within the collection. The result is a minimal study of structural wooden elements supporting a series of delicate metal tubes.
