About Louis Jobst“Craftsmanship is integral to the core of my work, the physicality and composition of materials underpin my creative practice. My aim is to achieve a balance between form and function” - Louis Jobst - Louis Jobst is a decorative lighting designer and architect establishing his studio in 2017 in Hackney, London. Jobst designs and manufactures bespoke and batch produced lighting and furniture exploring relationships between sculpture, product design and architecture. His work utilises the inherent qualities of materials expressing the process in which they are made. Jobst’s growing collection of lighting focuses on the dialogue between mass, geometry and proportion. Inspiration comes from architectural components such as arches, columns and monoliths, with reference drawn from early 20th century design and sculpture. Each light has a stacked formation with harmonised proportions and contrasted material qualities. Solid steel and glass mixed with ebonised oak and brass are amongst some of the materials used. The architectural influence is clear with striking geometric silhouettes and heavy robust materials. Jobst describes his works as “Monuments for the home”. Jobst won the Elle Decoration British Design Award 2017 for accessories and has showcased his new collection at the Design Museum (London), 67 York Street Gallery, Decorex, The London Art Fair and The London Design Fair. Jobst is currently selling his Monument collection at Heal Furniture store UK.
