Heavy Desk Light by Benjamin Hubert for Decode

London Design Festival 09: London designer Benjamin Hubert will launch a concrete desk lamp for design brand Decode London at 100% Design in London this week.

The lamps have a cast-concrete base and shade, joined by a wooden stand through which a red flex is threaded.

They are made of oak or walnut with concrete parts available in three different shades of grey.

The project is a continuation of Hubert’s Heavy lamps for Decode London, launched at 100% Futures last year.

The lamps are nominated for the 100% Design/Blueprint Best New Product award and The British Design Awards (vote here).

Here’s some more information from Hubert:

Heavy Desk Light, a collaboration with UK furniture and lighting manufacturer Decode.

Decode are a young British brand working closely with both emerging and established London based designers to produce innovative, contemporary interior objects.

In 2008 Benjamin Hubert collaborated with Decode to produce the award winning concrete pendant Heavy Lights. The desk light represents the first extension of this range. The lamp combines a simple aesthetic and new typology with a juxtaposition of industrial and natural materials.

Heavy Desk Lights comprise of a cast concrete base and shade with a ply laminate arm and machined aluminium details. The cast concrete shade is produced using an innovative ceramic casting technique manufactured in a specialist workshop in Leipzig Germany. This allows the shape to be cast with
a 4mm thin wall section.

Heavy Desk Lights are short listed for Elle Decor ‘British Design of the Year’ and 100% Design/Blueprint ‘Best New Product’.
