Akin to something out of Caractacus Potts’ workshop, Azhar Duhovich’s eccentric bricolage lights stood out a mile at the recent Tent London show at the Truman Brewery. Each piece is a unique composition of wood, metal, brightly coloured cable and exposed lightbulbs, hand made by the young designer in his North London workshop.
Duhovich initially based the collection around the structure of an artist’s easel, and now uses recycled easels as bases for the floor lamps. The range then extended to include table, pendant and wall lights, each made in a combination of new and reclaimed oak, beech or teak and steel brass or chrome. Overall, the collection has a quirky industrial aesthetic that Duhovich describes as a middle ground between Art Deco and Bauhaus.
We didn’t quite have room for Duhovich’s incredible lights in our upcoming LDF review, but we couldn’t resist sharing them. Find out what else we found around London Design Festival in our full review in November issue, out later this week.
