Based in Melbourne, designer Glen Lewis-Steele has one philosophy when it comes to design: “One glance is not enough.” Thus his latest collection, aspires to cause double takes in all the viewers, and maybe even a “change of whiplash.”
This hanging cube light, named Lee, almost seems to change as people move around it. Its slightly asymmetrical form moves with the viewer, inviting them to unveil its secrets.
The Coral lamp has a thin but solid tube protruding from a contrasting concrete base. The user can change the angle and level of lighting by raising and lowering the tube with the cord attached.
The Valerie lamp is a unique concoction of modern technology and older rituals. A melting candle drops and streams down the light, where it’s caught in a copper cradle and builds over an LED bulb. Its dripping form gives nod to the serenity of water, while its modern shape creates a sculptural look.
Basic wooden stools are transformed in the Rex stool. Familiar forms are regrouped into a new, unfamiliar outcome to arouse curiosity.
