Concept

Sebastian Herkner’s Bell Lights reveal their adaptability and flexibility at the very first glance. Each of the lampshades in this family of pendant lamps can be combined with a choice of sleek cylindrical bulb sockets in grey, brass or copper and simply screwed together. The various materials, textures and colours of lamp and shade can thus be mixed and matched to create very different moods. When several lamps are hung in a group, the contrasting shades enter into a captivating dialogue and yet clearly belong together. The Bell Lights thus recall both the form and function of studio lights, bringing the idea of adaptable lighting from the photography studio into the home with their textile materials, glass, non­ferrous metals and warm colours.

Customized combinations are possible with the various modules: bulb socket colour­lacquered metal, or solid brass or copper with clear varnish. Lamp shade made of fabric, plasticized inside, as a copper­plated metal cage or satin­finished or crystal glass. Black silicone covered cable.
