design et al are delighted to announce that O&A London have been shortlisted for Lighting – Piece Award within The International Design and Architecture Awards 2018.
The leading design team of Oleg Klodt and Anna Agapova created the O&A London furniture collection. With their focus on the very finest details and on combining time-honoured and pioneering methods and materials, they are renowned for producing one-off pieces that harmonise effortlessly with their setting. This is the hallmark of O&A London.
The minimalism and precision of O&A London pieces can be traced back to the luxuriance of the Art-Dèco and late Modernism movements and to the clean, sharp lines of Bauhaus. By cherry-picking attributes from these iconic moments in history, O&A London has created something classically-rooted for the contemporary interior. It is a collection that can be said to question the very role of furniture; a fundamentally sculptural approach that embraces the very latest technologies in a skilful balance of ideas and materials, of form and function.
A unique feature of this collection is its ability – guided by Oleg’s architectural eye and Anna’s design sensibilities – to blend luxury, simplicity of form and complexity of technique. Exquisite textures meet hand-crafted touches. Classical design meets advanced manufacturing techniques. MEISSA is a light fitting with the presence to be a centrepiece in any generous, high-ceilinged space, including atriums and stairwells. Light is refracted in the hidden depths of the sphere and casts a silky sheen in a delightful display of ‘chiaroscuro’. The height of the chandelier is 2950 mm and the width is 800 mm.
