Looking for new artwork? Consider a lighting fixture

January 30, 2018

St. John Lamps was established in 1979 by the current owner, Robert St. John Kennedy.

With continued innovation at our core, we are committed to developing tailored products utilising the latest lighting technologies and designs, while offering a wide range of colours, forms and fixtures.

‘We create distinctive, luxurious, and lasting custom made pendants and lampshades, all manufactured in our workshop.’

We manufacture large scale bespoke projects for a diverse range of clients from corporate offices, commercial premises and shopping centres, to restaurants, bars and 5-star hotels.

Over time we have developed an extensive range of styles that can be manufactured in your choice of materials, or we can construct one-off creations that can be formed to any shape you desire.

These specialised, individually designed shapes are possible due to a unique process implemented by our sister company, Creative Wire & Plastic Coating. With this process we can produce lampshades based on any shape imaginable.

Add instant drama to a room with home lighting fixtures that are also exciting and sculptural works of art.

Creative new shapes and technology mean that home lighting fixtures often do far more than provide illumination. They can be exciting and sculptural works of art.

“Designs are now not only a source of light, but a distinctive feature of an interior design,” says New York architect West Chin.

Chin recently hung a frothy cluster of LED glass bubbles over a dining table in a minimalist apartment in Manhattan. The fixture’s a focal point in an otherwise sparely decorated space. In a duplex, he placed a trio of mesh orbs over a staircase; when the lights are on, shadows dance theatrically against a paneled accent wall.

Chin’s also a fan of Stickbulb, a lighting component created by RUX studio in New York City. The “stick” is offered in various types of wood fitted with an LED. They’re then attached to a central metal element and can be configured into various shapes. 

Tom Dixon recently debuted a new lighting collection called Cut (pictured above). The faceted, clear or smoky fixtures, with mirrored finishes and metalized interiors, resemble enormous futuristic crystals. 

“When we’re planning a room that calls for a large piece of statement lighting, we always start with that piece first, building everything else around it,” say Brandon Quattrone and Mat Sanders of Consort Design in Los Angeles. “You want it to be the wow factor in a room. If you’re hanging a dining room chandelier, keep the surrounding walls simple, with a minimal piece of artwork or some subtle shelf styling.”

Designer Ghislaine Viñas did that in a Montauk, New York, beach house project. She hung Alvaro Catalan de Ocon’s PET Lamp Chandelier in an all-white dining space. The brightly hued lights, hanging on colored cords, bring in an element of playfulness.

Other intriguing fixtures new to the marketplace employ modern technology with a nod to classic design. Corbett Lighting’s Theory Chandelier is an ode to midcentury Italian design, with horizontal spokes alternating clear glass and gold-leaf iron rods. Calibrated LEDs gracefully cast light up and down.
