The winner of The Object category at the 2023 INDE.Awards lights up our world and is certainly an object of desire.
October 9th, 2023
Méne designed by Ross Gardam has been announced as the winner of The Object category at the 2023 INDE.Awards. This luminaire is delicate and ethereal in its form and beautifully crafted in its resolution and Méne has received the highest accolade for objects this year.
Partner of The Object category is CareersInDesign and congratulations go to Ross Gardam for his inspiring design.
The 2023 INDE.Awards jury remarked, “With a delicate and rounded form, Méne is a light that is not only beautiful but perfect in its rippled structure of mouth blown glass. A striking lighting addition to a home, it espouses the ideas of both the artisanal and the sophisticated.”
Méne appears to float in the air, much like a lunar apparition and it is delicate yet robust. Crafted with mouth blown glass the collection reveals a unique texture through the subtly illuminated shell.
The rippled effect of the form is a result of continuing experimentations with traditional optic glass blowing techniques and innovative engineering. This results in each light being individual and bespoke.
Méne utilises efficient LED technology, and a heat sink system and glass mounting system were developed to allow for replacement LEDs. All glass was blown at the Jam Factory in South Australia.
Congratulations to Ross Gardam for lighting up our world with a stunning new luminaire that adds beauty to the ubiquitous.
