design et al are delighted to announce the sucess of Bert Frank, who have been shortlisted in the Lighting- Lamp category of the International Product Design awards 2015.
The Revolve range like the majority of Bert Frank pieces , takes its inspiration from classic mid century design which is then re imagined to fit within today’s interiors.The Revolve collection is available in three textured colours, Petrol Blue, Old English White and Black. These Spun metal shades all have a Matte finish and have been chosen carefully to compliment the brass on both the floor & table lamp. The Floor Lamp’s brass stand has been hand finished with a softened tarnished appearance , while the table lamp adopts an UN-lacquered ,polished brass body of which the patina, if left over time,will soften and age . Bert Franks aim was to create a sophisticated yet practical table lamp. Something stylish that produces a light source that is both practical and tranquil.
The table lamp is operated by a brass pull chain switch which hangs over a solid brass base. The Base features an inset coloured ring which is coordinated to match the shade colour. This attention to detail instantly gives this range a feeling of quality and weight. The top brass detail spills light creating highlights on the brass and adds to its interest. While the light produced through the opal diffuser omits serenity and warmth. The range has connotations of an era of timeless elegance in design. Due to the simplicity and quality of the craftsmanship and the careful consideration of materials used , it gives off sense of opulence and luxury but at the same time retains its usability.
