Harmony by Jephson Robb for Bernhardt Design
As the workplace moves away from formality, the focus has turned to creating more relaxed and inviting spaces. New challenges also emerge in finding the right balance between personalized aesthetics and functionality. Inspired by these cultural shifts, acclaimed Scottish sculptor Jephson Robb designed Harmony.
73V is an expansion of the technique used to create Bocci’s popular 73 series. The new pendant features a novel oblong shape and gradient colour range. 73V results from blowing molten glass into a folded, heat-resistant ceramic fabric. The resulting shape has a formal and textural expression intuitively associated with fabric, which becomes permanent as it cools. A light source is positioned at the top of each pendant, accentuating the volumetric perception of the piece as well as the gradation of color.
28 results from an innovative fabrication process that manipulates both the temperature and the direction of air flow into blown glass. The result is a slightly distorted sphere with an interior landscape of satellite shapes, including an opaque milk glass diffuser that houses either a low-voltage xenon or LED lamp. 28 series are available in 90 different colour ways making every fixture unique in form and composition.

Matthew Hilton (359) Kimble Windsor Chair
Kimble is a Windsor chair named after a neighbouring village of High Wycome in Buckinghamshire, where the Windsor chair originated. The chair uses traditional Windsor chair making techniques in order to further the story, the evolution of the English Windsor chair. The contrast of the black walnut seat on this otherwise ash chair, attractively highlights the wedge tenon detail where the leg intersects with the top of the seat.
