Contemporary Tower Floor Lamp with Geometric Oak Base and Japanese Paper Shade

About

Louis Jobst' tower floor lamp. The dark asymmetric lamp-base is made up of carefully considered geometric forms. This is contrasted with a lightweight cylindrical shade. The base is a pedestal for the sculptural light source above. The carefully considered forms are reminiscent of the nuances in architectural space. True perspective of space is nearly always asymmetric. The base reflects this concept; different forms and shapes appear as you view the lamp-base from different angles, contrasted with the cylindrical lampshade, as it appears constant, striking a balance between the two volumes. Its base can be turned to provide different silhouettes and configurations of form. Tower floor lamp can be used in a variation of spaces due to its muted tones, clean lines and contemporary design. The oak base is handmade from solid English oak with an iron oxide finish; this is where iron reacts with the tannin in the oak to create a blue or black tone naturally formed from the oak itself. A polished brass neck leads to a tall cylindrical lampshade made from Japanese washi paper. The paper is fibrous and textured with gold and silver flecks. LED ribbons on the inside provide a diffused consistent glow that is controlled by a brass rotary dimmer switch located beneath the shade.

About The Maker

Louis Jobst

Louis Jobst

View Profile
Louis Jobst's award winning designs are inspired by both functional and sculptural form. The choice of material is an important one; by connecting with ‘a material’s rawness’, he often finds the process of making is as significant as the end product. Jobst is interested in the juxtaposition between robust materials and rigorous processing, thus creating an unconventional and blemished effect. This in contrast reveals the elegance and delicacy of the components. Through designing and making sculptural lamps and furniture, Jobst transforms large-scale industrial processes into small-scale batch produced products. His passion for architectural forms such as arches, columns and monoliths are expressed in this work. These are presented through a contrasting palette of materials, textures and colours, resulting in his unique style. Jobst first trained as an architect, working for practices such as Carmody Groarke, where he gained an interest in high quality construction materials and simple geometric forms. In 2013 he began working for the renowned Mike Smith Studio, collaborating on major art fabrication projects both in the UK and abroad. This has provided Jobst with skills and experience working with a vast range of materials and across a broad range of scales.
