Little Taet Ceiling Light

Annemarie O'Sullivan
£6,120
Little Taet Ceiling Light by Annemarie O'Sullivan was inspired by Annemarie's time spent on a residency in the Orkney Islands, organised by The New Craftsmen. A brand new addition to the collection, crafted in an eye-catching disc shape and a slightly smaller version of Annemarie's original Taet Light, Annemarie found herself drawn to the historical grains grown on Orkney, discovering that Rye straw was once used in the hat making industry to make bonnets. The natural strength of the straw, which lent itself well to hat making, also makes ideal material for this modern, structural light. The pendant comes as standard to hang at 80cm from ceiling with static dark bronze suspension pole and simple pendant shade ring installation. Custom lengths can be commissioned. Suitable for E27 bulbs, maximum 13W LED recommended (bulb not supplied).

Process
