Contemporary Monument Lamp Square in Travertine, Solid Steel and Glass

About

Louis Jobst' monument lamps are high quality, bespoke and handmade using solid raw materials. The bases are finished with a black patina and cut from 90mm thick steel billet. Markings from the process are visible and intentionally left, exposing the character of the material. A square block of Roman Travertine slots into the steel base. The opal glass diffuser is handblown with a matte finish and contains a dimmable Led light source. The concept was to design a lamp triptych made out of high quality materials for a formal interior space. A triptych of varying forms, colors and textures could create a 'common ground' throughout a space, whilst also working as individual lamps (circle, triangle and square). Inspiration has come from architectural forms such as monoliths and monuments, implemented through the design with heavy, robust materials and simple geometric forms. The lamps consist of stacked shapes, designed like a small column, with geometric capitals supporting the light source. The lamps precedent pay reference to Brancusi's geometric plinths and pedestals, and Chillida's square sectioned ironworks. Monument lamps work in all types of spaces from Classic to contemporary. They can be positioned on console, side and bedside tables or work very well in shelving units.

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.
