With roots in Islamic architecture and later popularised in Gothic architecture and Christian symbolism the quatrefoil has long been a go to decorative design element.
Quatreform is a wall mounted slice of history reinvented in vivid Formica offering you the opportunity to live like a medieval noble in your own castle.
The edgelit concentric layers of Formica highlight the form and provide a soft ambient glow enhancing any setting. With Quatreform, wise men seeking enlightenment will be guided with ease around your gallery space or lounge room should the need arise.
Constructed of Formica AR Plus laminated over layers of 8mm clear acrylic with frosted edges. Internally illuminated by an LED light source.
A set of three lighting forms make up lightscape, a miniature topographical landscape of contours and light.
Amuse yourself and delight your friends by rearranging the modules to create your own vivid Formica landscape connected via a sinuous power cable.
Layers of Formica are laminated over edgelit opal acrylic housing an internal LED light source.
Our design intention was to create simple and elegant shapes that showcase and compliment the finishes from the Formica range.
Our concept has a balance of design and functionality, including beautiful yet purposeful ˜insertions˜ that allows the surprise of light to filter through.
We wanted to create a design that could applied to any style of interior, providing a beautiful and complimentary accessory to any interior space, either residential or commercial.
Left as one long snake or coiled up as required. Ref 3d model.
Best with nylon wire to hang head from ceiling like a charmers snake
It can also adjust for reading light from mouth spot.
Colours to buyers’ preference.
My design is simply based on creating negative and positive spaces for light. Through my design development I looked at ways light could overlap to create a tessellated pattern. I also looked for ideas in the build environment around me where negative and positive spaces for light were already present. My final design came from the same principle as a high rise apartment building where each balcony receives its own portion of light. My Lamp however works in the opposite manner as the light source comes from within the structure, protruding out through each crack and radiating from each platform. During the day time where the lamp is turned off it acts as a fantastic piece of sculptural artwork displaying Formica’s unique high pressure laminate ‘Carrera Marble’ to each external face.
Tesselites comprises three table lamps. The three Tesselites offer flexibility as they are designed to work together or as separate objects. The varying sizes of the cubes provide a balanced composition when grouped, alternatively providing flexibility of function when used apart (Eg smaller lights for beside tables, larger for coffee table).
In the Crosses and Triangles Tesselites, the formal repetition of the different shapes and colour patterns is subverted by unexpectedly scattering the openings. This allows light to spill out, with some opening wrapping from one place of the cube onto the next.
The design of Pyramids plays with three-dimensionality in a different way, as each pyramid projects out from the grid of the cube, and the colour layout is rotated with each repeat.
Each Tesselite lamp has a palette of three neutrals and one feature colour, with contrast between gloss and matt finishes. As a lighting range the colour and texture possibilities are endless.
The substrate is 9mm Lakepine MDF, and LED lamps sit inside on the base. Each table lamp connects to mains power via a cable and plug.
Formica Jewels are a range of five geometric pendants that can be hung in a myriad of ways – in a row over a kitchen island bench or dining table, as a cluster in the centre of a room, independently in a smaller room, one of each design or all the same.
The colours and textures are inspired by precious stones, marble and granite, supported perfectly by the Formica ranges, with some Caesarstone detail. The rich jewel colours are used as the inside face of each fitting, revealing themselves as the observer draws closer.
The substrate is 9mm Lakepine MDF, and LED lamps sit inside on the top of each light. Each Formica Jewel connects to mains power via a silver coloured sheathed electrical cable, and is suspended from the ceiling by a stainless steel cable, both fixed through the ceiling mounted plate.
