David Weeks Studio's new scultpural chandelier family: Bramah

David Weeks Bramah single chandelier

13 August 2013 update: Please note that the Studio have temporarily suspended production of this line!

David Weeks Studio has introduced Bramah, which currently comes in three versions.

The easiest way to understand this design from pictures is to look at the Bramah Single Tier (#441) above.

The key component is the reflector/diffuser. David commissioned his own proprietary extruded metal shape, which he then worked on for months, cutting and shaping it to find the form that would become the collection's wing-like shade:

The shade is counterbalanced by a weight. Two are hung at each end of a rod to create the main component of the Bramah Single Tier:

They can move, so as you adjust the angle of the central shaft, like a seesaw, the diffusers and their counterweights keep themselves level. The minimum length is 191cm and the maximum length 241cm.

If one is good, how about three together hanging in a cluster!

Another way to get a similar effect is to specify the Bramah Chandelier (#440) which has three of the tiers on a single central shaft:

If the David Weeks Studio's Bramah Chandelier makes the most of adding elements, there is also the option to go the other way -- to reduce the design to its essence. This is the Bramah Solo pendant light:

It comprises a single one of the 112cm long shade and counterweight combos, hanging from its own chrome-plated rod. Again, one is good, but multiples are also good!

Note that glare is prevented by there being a separate wing below the lamp.

This lovely, timeless design comes in matt black or ivory on the outside. Other colours are available for an upcharge.
