Form Meets Function in the Terra Collection

Australian industrial design studio Marz Designs creates and produces lighting, furniture, and objects influenced by mid-century design, art deco, and modernist movements. Their latest is the Terra lighting collection, a sculptural yet deceptively simple and versatile pendant, wall, and ceiling light.

The slip cast ceramic shades were created with the help of Grit Ceramics and are available in three tones – Slate, Sage, and Vanilla Bean. The fixtures that are accented with wood components are FSC certified walnut or oak that have been hand-turned by Melbourne Table Co. The finished products are all assembled, checked, and packed in-house at Marz studio using bright or blacked brass fittings.
