A Way of Light

Lighting is a crucial element in the design of any room and, with this in mind, we would like to show  you three very different pieces of lighting from our Circa inventory.

American table lamps.

Robert Sonneman’s award winning creations have been at the forefront of the design world for over four decades and these glass and steel table lamps – by Sonneman for George Kovacs  – reflect the sleek functionalist pieces of the 60s and 70’s that became classics of the modern era.

With lacquered gold columns, and thick glass illuminated by a dimmer switch on the base, the clean lines and simplicity are typical of the designs that sealed Sonneman’s reputation as a pioneer of lighting as an art form.

Lumi pendant lightLumi pendant light

Here we have a large pendant light by Pia Guidetta Crippa for Lumi, Italy.

The opaque white glass dome, faceted domed glass and aluminium fittings give this light an ultra modern, almost futuristic feel which is in keeping with many of Pia Guidetta Crippa’s  designs.

Italy, 1960’s.

Italian chandelier

Italian chandelier

This chandelier is an example of Italian craftsmanship at its best.

In the style of Fontana Arte, with green and grey smoke tinted glass panels attached to a rectangular brass boxed frame, the elements of almost industrial type brass fittings and smooth glass combine to create a very unusual piece with a pleasing syntax of ordered chaos.

Superb from every angle, it would make a statement wherever it was placed.
