Selfridge Spot Table Lamp
A finely textured silk velvet devore and merino wool lampshade on an English Oak lozenge shaped lamp base.
Handmade lampshade made by fusing the traditional practice of wet felting with devore. The solid oak base is polished with beeswax to bring out the beautiful patina and textures of the wood and finished with antique brass lamp fittings and twisted natural linen flex cord.
The Selfridge Spot lamp is part of my Translucency & Opacity Collection, a range of felted textiles that investigates the relationship between actual and perceived textures with light. Each design within the collection has been inspired by my love of architecture, with the designs developed from my photographs and drawing of iconic buildings. The circle design on this shade has been inspired by 15,000 anodised aluminium discs mounted on the exterior of the Birmingham Selfridges Building, designed by Jan Kaplicky and Amanda Levete.
