Michael Young’s collaboration up with Hong Kong’s EOQ results in the robust Bramah Lamp Collection.
September 6th, 2013
With the first models in this collection launched at Design Junction in 2012, this family of light fittings epitomises a common design philosophy that drives Young and manufacturer EOQ – the exploration of industrial chic.
A beautiful and unapologetic expression of design as a process, the Bramah Pendant is comprised of more than 100 extruded metal fins – entirely robust but sculptural in form and elegant in its diffusion of light.
Bramah takes its name from Englishman Joseph Bramah, the man widely regarded as the foremost inventor of his time in the early 19th Century. Credited with inventing the hydraulic press, his predilection for innovating and creation is celebrating in this as well as the “Joseph” collection.
