A culmination of innovative manufacture, visual simplicity and the desire to challenge perceptions of raw materials.
December 1st, 2011
HALO Lighting is excited to announce this latest collection by Decode. Designed by Benjamin Hubert, the new Heavy series is a ’culmination of innovative manufacture, visual simplicity and the desire to challenge perceptions of raw materials’ (Hubert, 2009). Making use of concrete this series includes a family of pendants available in various sizes, wall lamps and desk lamps. Decode push boundaries and are known for their collaboration with noted designers, architects and artists. Designed and made in London this range is exclusive to HALO (WA).
The Heavy Desk Lamp has a hand-cast concrete base and shade joined by a wooden arm of oak or walnut. In contrast, a simplistic, yet striking red fabric cable is threaded through the arm. The lamps were nominated for the 100% Design/Blueprint Best New Product and were awarded British Design of the Year in 2009.
The suspension series Heavy Lights place an un-expected twist on high-end lighting. The concrete shades are 5mm thin and rather lightweight, juxtaposing their heavy appearance. The neutral colour schemes and polished concrete shades give the pieces a clean, industrial and un-pretentious look. The pendants are available in three sizes and in colours white, light grey and dark grey.
Other pieces from the 2011 Decode collection can be found at www.halolighting.com.au/brand/decode, including the Vessel, Re-spun and the Wire series.

“The concept [of Green Spine] is about ‘how can this be an opportunity for Southbank?’ We looked at how Southbank is developing with huge density and we tried to break through that and create more openness,” shares Caroline Bos of UNStudio on the design of the winning tower for the $2b Southbank by Beulah development.
