The latest from Dutch design studio RF Objects, the CLOCHE series and the ROUNDABOUT series are each handcrafted with hundreds of yards of wire rope. Designer Ralph Frickel created a series of industrial-style lighting objects that were inspired by shapes that are far from industrial.The CLOCHE set is a tribute to the famous Parisian cloche hat of the early twentieth century and a nod to the classic lampshades of the 1920s. This series is perfectly suited for any modern yet elegant interior. Taking the traffic circle as inspiration, the ROUNDABOUT collection is designed to make intersections in the home safer and more efficient. Endless roundness!
The use of wire rope was more than just an unconventional choice of material. For its lighting collection, RF Objects uses a special kind of architectural wire rope that has a more shiny surface than traditional industrial wire rope. As a result the lighting objects offer a soft and gentle sparkle to the interior all day long. By night the illuminated wire rope offers a surpising shadow play to the lighting object’s immediate surroundings.
