Pierre + Charlotte Launch Bucket Lighting Series Made of Tasmanian Woods

Design duo Pierre + Charlotte’s paths have led them from Paris to Melbourne before recently settling into Tasmania, which has driven a new approach to their design. After the move, they decided to reimagine their brand to focus on wooden lighting and accessories, most of which are made in-house. Just recently, they launched the Bucket lighting series which includes a wall light, pendant light, and table lamp, all made from Tasmanian woods.

With a focus on environmentally friendly production, the studio uses small amounts of steel (for hardware) and fabric, with the remaining 95% of materials being locally sourced wood. The Bucket lights feature molded plywood shades that rest on dowel-like components, all made of Tasmanian Celery Top Pin, Huon Pine, or American Walnut.

The Bucket series will be exhibited at Gallery S.Bensimon in Paris until January 12th, 2018.
