Bollard is a smart example of that approach in practice. At first Bollard may appear like any other ordinary pendant but a cleverly designed clip and foot allows the lamp to perform in many situations. Suspended from the ceiling the lamp functions as a traditional light but clipping the cord into a side fastener it can work as a spot light. Bollard may also be used as an upward beam light when placed on its foot, or can be casually placed horizontally on a shelf. A versatile lamp that can be used alone or grouped together in a home, office or café environment.

The Tribeca Series by Søren Rose

Søren Rose is a talented Danish entrepreneur with a past as Creative Director in the web and photography industry. His dream of running his very own design studio came true in 2008 and today he lives in New York where he runs the very popular Søren Rose Studio.

The Tribeca Series is a mix of lamps, pendants and chandeliers, all inspired by New York City glamor in the late 1930’s. The name Tribeca refers to a very popular part of New York on lower west Manhattan, the Triangle below Canal Street.

The various shapes and designs in the Tribeca series were created in an inspiring creative process where Søren Rose Studio traveled the States searching for beautiful old lamps and reusable parts. All the parts were separated, rated and arranged, and then gathered again, mix and match style, until these new and much bolder designs appeared.

This year we’re adding another item to the lineup: Duane. Duane is a small and neat lamp perfect for reading and writing. Made with solid brass and porcelain socket, this retro-chic piece of art will give your space an elegant feel.
