We’re excited about some great new pieces at the Store that have just arrived. From Hong Kong we’re celebrating the landing of some more pieces from iconic British designer Michael Young and his brand, EOQ. We’re already familiar with his work via the sleek, industrial detailing of the ‘Bramah’ lights, but are delighted to now also be showcasing his new ‘Joseph’ pendants, sconces and table lights.
Based on the same concept of unearthing beauty through the innovative use of materials and technologies, these are a seriously-beautiful, solid and well-considered range of lights. Already proving popular with the architectural community, these have a scale and warmth that also allow them to sit perfectly within a residential setting. As the collection has grown in size, so the pieces themselves have also grown in ambition and stature.
The Orsted Desk has used the same extrusion technology seen with the Bramah lights to create a sleek pale gold, leather and walnut affair with pre-cut holes for cabling and the option of sliding walnut boxes to hold desktop paraphenalia; whilst the Bayer Shelves combine forged links in gold, silver or powder coated aluminium, with shelving of smoked oak, walnut or even driftwood, set in dramatic opposition to them. An endlessly-configurable unit that we see working in a luxurious residential setting, or equally well as a room divider in a high-end restaurant, these pieces illustrate EOQ’s growth of into a brand of real distinction.
