Introducing the new Wave Collection by Curiousa, seven new striking lights ranging from table lamps and pendants to vertical and horizontal statement sculptural lights. Combining the organic nature of free-blown glass with a modern aesthetic, Esther Patterson, founder of Curiousa, has pushed Curiousa’s technical and aesthetic boundaries marking a new chapter in Curiousa’s design journey.
Each WAVE light has been developed and carefully crafted then hand-assembled by the Curiousa Team in their Derbyshire workshop. Every piece of glass is free-blown in the UK, without the use of moulds, using just the skill of hand and eye to guide each shape. Careful precision and detail has been required to piece together each light so it looks organic but is in fact beautifully precise.
Esther says “Each sculptural light houses a spiral of LED strips within a diffused tubular suspension, creating a beam of light that glows through linear stacked free-blown glass pieces. I wanted to push the boundaries technically and create something very architectural but still adhere to the tactile ‘Curiousa Look’. They are quite a departure from our usual lights but we’ve loved the challenge of making them – that’s what being a designer is all about. I’m really excited to see the reaction of our customers, old and new.”
The Wave Collection will be officially launched at this years Decorex International hosted at Olympia London from the 9-12th of October. Curiousa will be exhibiting at stand E147.
