The Arthropod Line – Distinguished by their exoskeleton and jointed, high-mobility limbs, arthropods are one of the most omnipresent groups of living organisms on the planet. Remarkably, the enormous variety of eye designs and light-capturing mechanisms found in various arthropod species alludes to the extent to which nature has innately attempted to develop solutions for helping its fellows in overcoming their visual limitations… Thus comes the inspiration for this line of steel fixtures, focusing most of all on versatility in favor of the general, specific, or exceptional mood in any given space. The fixtures are made out of raw iron, gold brass, red copper and polished stainless steel attached together by multi-directional hand-milled hinges all along the axles. Each joint rotates in 4 different angles allowing the user to direct and redirect the lighting according to the space’s need. 

The light source at the top of the fixture is also hand molded allowing a mixture of raw and polished finishing. The collection is a limited edition collection offered to design collectors and design enthusiasts alike . The buying of the pieces usually happens by bespoke orders with a production frame of four weeks. The collection originally started with a floor lamp extending to 3 meters tall at its most expanded form but later evolved to contain more apartment friendly sizes with different materials and finishings. The smaller sizes extend up to
1 meter in heigh and occupy a square of 50 cm x 50 cm.
Today the arthropod collection
offers 5 different models each with a different material and color option.
