crane light

Client: Robotmother

Location: Brain of Brian Office Barge, Cornwall, UK

The starting point for the Crane Light on the Office Barge was a section of unusually shaped galvanised conduit, salvaged from the renovation of Jubilee Warehouse. Both of these Robotmother projects were happening at the same time, and the owner, Andrew Marston, liked the idea of creating a tangible link between the two. By recycling part of the original Jubilee Warehouse, it is a nod to the building’s history and visible reminder of the sustainability ethos that underpins all of RobotMother's projects.

We decided to turn the conduit into a wall light and the mezzanine level above the eating space gave a perfect opportunity to mount an arm light over the table. I constructed the Crane Light in collaboration with Mark Harris and sought to create a fixture that was both functional and attractive, whilst still in keeping with the overall aesthetic of the office.”
