Cascade and Contour by Bodo Sperlein

London Design Festival 09: London designer Bodo Sperlein is showing a new collection of furniture and lighting at Tent London and SuperSquat, Brunswick House this week.

The collection is composed of a chandelier, a chair and a table.

Called Cascade, the chandelier is constructed from chrome-plated steel tubes and is inspired by water fountains.

The table and chair, called the Contour collection, are both made of hardwood, and are available in a range of colours.

Sperlein designed them by experimenting with twisting a single sheet of paper.

More from Bodo Sperlein:

Bodo Sperlein introduces his dynamic new furniture and lighting collection at Tent London, as part of the London Design Festival.

Come and visit us in Content, stand E17, from Thursday 24 – Sunday 27 September, 2009. Visit the Tent London website for more information on opening times and visiting.

Cascade is a new chandelier by Bodo Sperlein, produced entirely from chrome plated steel tubes. This visually arresting and playful form was inspired by the folly of water fountains. Like water, the highly polished surface reflects light and image. Cascade creates a dramatic focal point, by building up a series of simple forms rhythmically, with reference to 1920’s constructivism.

Sperlein has sought to use idiosyncratic materials for his chandelier designs, beginning with his use of porcelain for Lladró, and continuing here. He is fascinated by the strength and malleability of steel, and references England’s historic expertise in this area. Using the latest in LED light techniques this light sculpture will shine in warm tones which normally are not associated with the traditional cold light style LEDs.

The Contour table and chair are part of a capsule furniture collection which continues his signature style of sensual and curvaceous forms – this time however working on a larger scale.

The chair exudes a simple elegance, and has been designed to look like a single sculpted sheet. A ribbon-like profile draws the eye effortlessly around a series of loops terminating in slender legs that conceal their true strength. The lines of a traditional table have been elongated, and embellished with curves. Concaved sections play on negative space, and give the table a ‘lightness’ that contrasts with the weight and solidity of the hardwood from which it is made.
