I’m a huge fan of Tom Raffield. I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned this before. His story is of a talented craftsman who has pioneered the use of sustainable materials, using traditional methods, into contemporary lighting and furniture that has taken the interiors industry by storm. I loved his steam bent wood lampshades the first time I laid eyes on them, and I’ve been following his progress ever since. Not to mention the drooling that took place when his home was featured on Grand Designs. And now he has launched a new ebonised lighting range called Noctis which is even more up my street.
The Noctis Range
This brand-new lighting collection features seven ebonised versions of Tom’s most iconic lighting designs and promises to bring daring, darker depths to interiors – a nod to the current interior trend of using masculine, darker tones. “The Noctis Range sees our most iconic lights take on a whole new aesthetic. We’ve ebonised the steam bent wood to give a sleek, darkened effect that contrasts incredibly well with metallic brass. The final designs are luxurious, unique and symbolise an exciting next step for the brand”. – Founder, Tom Raffield.
No.1 Giant Pendant
The iconic No.1 Pendant gets an innovative update. Handcrafted into the most intricate of sculptural spheres,
Wheal Wall Light
An arching curve of steam bent, ebonised oak towers up from a sleek brass base plate. An alluring contrast of deep black and lustrous, polished metal. Modern. Refined. Enticing.
Urchin Cluster Light
Flexed to the brink and back. Three ebonised Noctis Urchin Pendants cascade from a sleek, spun metal top plate creating warm slithers of bright light in the dark. With an elegant, customisable design that invites personalisation, each pendant can be suspended at a different height allowing a showstopping configuration to take charge of your space.
An interplay of dissipating shadow and radiant light. Steam bent curlicues of ebonised tulip wood and twists of opulent, golden brass circle together. Illuminated by three warm-toned filament bulbs, each intricate piece is in constant motion. A weightless rotation, an exhibition of eye-catching, elegant beauty. The Tom Raffield signature chandelier, re-imagined.
NOCTIS KERN PENDANT
The Kern’s minimalist, steam bent shape takes on a sleek new identity. Demanding precision, strength and craftsmanship to achieve its smooth circumference, the result is modern, architectural, powerful, with exposed flex tethering five bulbs to its ebonised oak frame.
