Earnest Pendant

The Earnest Pendant design features a solid Tasmanian oak timber plank twisting over itself at 180 degrees.

The apparent method to achieve such a sculptural element would be layering or laminating thin strips of veneers, creating a traditional oak ply, however a more progressive approach was applied which explored the limits of the material.

The bending process involved steaming the plank and increasingly twisting the timber over time. The timber now remains against its natural state, accentuating the material’s capabilities. The light embodies one delicate gesture that is simple yet exciting.

The solid oak pendant light challenges our understanding and expectations of the material. In one soft and elegant movement, the light engages the users of the space and creates a marriage of movement and rituals.
