Designed in-house by the Harris & Harris studio, the Wharf range fuses classic glass elements with minimal metal work, creating a sophisticated yet playful lighting solution with a focus on craftsmanship.
The series was born from experimenting with light through different types of glass; the finish combination options of burnt FSC certified ash with brushed brass or natural ash with blackened steel chosen for their contrast with one another. Black woven flex was selected to provide the final touch.
“Reeded glass tubes provided a very interesting effect and their semi-transparent nature allows for an attractive LED filament-look bulb to be used. The beauty of the lamps are the textures expressed through the rich palette of materials we have selected, including the tactile reeds of the glass and the deep grain of the burnt ash, which we have presented in a contemporary and minimal way,” explains Creative Director Alexander Harris.
As with all products in the collection, the Wharf lights contribute to the Harris & Harris ‘Designed for Life’ Foundation, helping those without food, water or shelter.
