Contardi Recess

Staffan’s ongoing collaboration with lighting couturier Contardi all began with the BELLE. Designed to play with the notion of functional sculpture, Contardi’s immaculate execution of the Belle succeeds in concealing its function until closer inspection. The essential shape is formed from glazed ceramic, with a braided silk rope enclosing the lighting cable. Belle is available in a series of neutral and bronzed tones, in two sizes and as a wall lamp. Designs for Contardi showcased at Tollgard’s London showrooms also include RECESS. Recess was inspired by the requirement for a decorative fitting that could flush into a conventional ceiling void and provide a functional and sculptural solution for corridors and public spaces. Both fittings available to view at Tollgard Belgravia.
