The Teardrop Lamp Story
Barend Massow designs to experiment. The South African creative’s interest in the interplay of geometric forms, surface texture and the exchange of light and shadow lead to the creation of the Teardrop Lamp, comprised of laser-cut birch plywood components and brass details hand-assembled in Massow’s studio. Designed using cutting-edge computer modeling software, the Teardrop’s design casts distinctive geometric patterns throughout the room, in vital contrast to the lightness of its construction. Fitted with a standard socket and an extra-long cable, each lamp comes supplied with a light bulb and is ready to illuminate your space.
Brand & Designer
Berend Massow Hemmes is a South African interior designer who uses renewable laser-cut birch-ply to create this fascinating range of lights. At first conceived as a large wooden bulb, it has since evolved into a number of designs in a range of sizes and a limited edition range that encompasses corroded steel, spun copper, perspex and aluminum. With a symmetrical and minimalistic aesthetic, the lights are playful both in their scale and in their reflection of light and the limited edition series’ fusion of materials adds elegance and completion to a great series of lighting.
