Tom Raffield puts nature back in the spotlight
21 Aug 2018
With an experimental workshop set amongst six acres of ancient woodland in Cornwall, Tom Raffield designs are synonymous with nature; each product is hand-shaped using sustainable wood and created as sculptural pieces of art using a pioneering form of steam bending.
Tom Raffield’s new collection, The Modum Range, launches on 24th August 2018 and showcases the brands signature steam bent curves and innovative, iconic design aesthetic. Taking inspiration from the organic shapes, movements and sequential patterns that are found in the natural world, Tom Raffield’s new Modum Lighting Range aims to put nature back in the spotlight.
The Tom Raffield Modum Range: see your space differently
“Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate, revitalize, and unite, Modum symbolises the reconnection we seek with nature. Each light draws inspiration from nature’s most intricate forms, and transforms them into handcrafted, unique lighting solutions designed to suit any space” – Founder, Tom Raffield
Stand outs of the new range are the Arame Wall Light whose steam bent silhouette promises to create boundless, unfurling shadows that pirouette and tumble in kaleidoscopic tessellation. Other key pieces include the Quill 325 and Quill 550 Pendants which feature looping, layered plumage of oak or walnut wood designed to mimic a bird’s feathers in full flight formation
Shop the range direct from tomraffield.com with shipping worldwide, as well as a selection of John Lewis and Heal’s stores.
