We were so impressed with the outcome of the collaborative works produced for The Creating Balance Project , we decided we had to translate at least some of the ideas into limited edition products we could offer for sale.
First off the mark is a series of pendant lamps, customised by Portsmouth based artist, My Dog Sighs. For the project, the artist used an Original1227 table lamp as a mixing palette for his work. The result was a customised lamp that was so arresting, we used it as the lead visual for showcasing the project at London Design Festival.
For our first commercial collaboration with My Dog Sighs It was decided the artist should work with the Duo Maxi pendant – once installed the lamp would require minimal handling which would protect the hand painted finish, whilst its generous proportions would provide the perfect canvas for the artist’s dynamic style.
Now the first batch of pendants is ready and available for sale exclusively on our website. Anyone interested in acquiring a unique example of functional art from a talented contemporary artist, take note - each piece is unique and stock is strictly limited, so snap one up quickly!
Our second collaboration is with Portsmouth based artists, Roo and Barry Abrook. For The Creating Balance project they created a stunning series of prints, incorporating original hand drawn illustrations and photography, upcycled onto pages of vintage and antique books. Surrealist humour is combined with ‘English Eccentric” symbolism, and then interwoven with subtle allusions to the history and functionality of the Anglepoise lamp. Naturally we loved them!
We’re now delighted to offer a limited series of the Roo Abrook / Anglepoise prints. Each print is individually produced by hand using archival inks and vintage and antique books from the artists’ collection. No two prints are the same and the series is strictly limited. They’re available exclusively at the Pitfield pop up in Winchester and online via our website here
