Possessing grown up in the wilds of Exmoor and now residing and functioning in rural Cornwall, it is no surprise that ward-winning lighting designer Tom Raffield draws inspiration from nature for his lighting and furniture designs – and the Bloom Light is no exception. The pretty lighting unit utilizes petals of bent wood organized into a symmetrical form all around a central bulb.
Tom explains: “Using the shapes in nature and crafting them in wood are what interests me. As the title suggests, the inspiration for this new light came from the blooming of a flower and the layout was all about attempting to create something organic and free of charge-flowing. The big petals are manufactured of high good quality wood and mask significantly of the bulb, while also cutting via the light to develop soft shadows and a warm glow“. The item is offered in sustainably sourced ash, oak or walnut, or in a mixture of oak and walnut, and as either a pendant or floor-standing light.
