Product description

Billy TL Ilse Crawford Edition was created by London-based designer and creative director Ilse Crawford for Kalmar Werkstätten. This new version elevates the Billy TL concept with materiality. A rosewood stem standing on satin-brass feet replaces the unstained oak and colored lacquer of the original. Furthermore, the 17.5-centimeter-diameter lampshade here features a duotone finish—a matt-black exterior with satin brass underneath—that makes the Billy TL edition of Ilse Crawford's directional lighting feel more ambient. Crawford attended to every detail with this commission as evidenced by the textile power cable, whose color is fully resolved to the palette. With the Ilse Crawford Edition, Billy TL’s honest construction and anthropomorphic quality are as apparent as ever, but now the lamp conveys Crawford’s world-renowned sophistication, humility, and warmth.

Concept

The Billy lamp series proves that utilitarian design—the honest construction of simple materials — can both reflect an industrial heritage and perfectly accent a domestic environment.
