Monument Lamps are high quality, bespoke and handmade using solid raw materials. The bases are finished with a black patina and cut from 90mm steel billet. Markings from the process are visible and intentionally left, exposing the character of the material. Three different stones Carrara marble, Roman Travertine and Luna Pearl granite slot into the steel bases. The glass diffuser is hand blown with a matt finish and contains a dimmable halogen light source.

The concept was to design a lamp triptych made out of high quality materials for a formal interior space. A triptych of varying forms, colours and textures could create a 'common ground' throughout a space, whilst also working as individual lamps. Inspiration has come from architectural forms such as monoliths and monuments, implemented through the design with heavy, robust materials and simple geometric forms. The lamps consist of stacked shapes, designed like a small column, with geometric capitals supporting the light source. The lamps precedent pay reference to Brancusi's geometric plinths and pedestals, and Chillida's square sectioned ironworks.
