My passion for simple design is growing constantly along with sourcing brands that hold sustainability within their hands to create wonderful products that move forward with technology but keeping their integrity and ethos focused on the environment around them.
I can’t deny that I have been an admirer of Kovac Family for a very long time, such simple elegance in everything that they do. The Sweden based multidisciplinary company is run by Camilla and Christopher Kovac, designing and running their business as environmentally friendly as they possibly can. All their products are made in Sweden using sustainable materials and sold exclusively in their showroom and online store.
Their ambition is to create products that have the smallest impact possible on the environment by sourcing the materials needed and producing them locally. The challenge was to be able to create something using a minimum amount of certified environmentally friendly materials as possible and also have the capacity to be easily recycled.
Their collection is simply called Numbers, each product named after the number of parts used to construct each form, yes as simple as that! The inspiration behind it all comes from nature itself, the question asked is, how can we make this better in all aspects to improve the every day life and our environment, a question we should find ourselves asking every single day.
The versatility of these stunning lights is wonderful, the shape mimicking that of a shell can be placed anywhere, as well as hung creating a focal point where ever it is positioned. They come with either 3 or 5 metres of cord giving you plenty of options to drape and hang to perfection. I had great fun placing this stunning Ebonized Oak 25Lamp around my home, I think it’s final resting place with be hanging low over my kitchen table creating a delicate pool of light and added wow factor.
14Lamp is the new design, smaller than the 25Lamp but perfectly formed and still as striking, they would look fabulous hung low as bedside lights, hmmm now there’s an idea!
Each light be it oak, ash, waxed, striped, dip dyed, freckled or whitened comes delivered flat packed in a box smaller than one you would get a pizza in! You ingeniously fold out the pieces to create the iconic shape, total genius. Such simplicity in it’s beauty, bringing sustainability to our homes with clever design is something we should all strive for.
