Evenings are drawing in. Birds gather for their long travels across the oceans. Trees are beginning to change colour – transforming England’s green and pleasant land into a kaleidoscope of rich colours of brown, red and orange.
September heralds the inevitable change of the seasons and the arrival of colder climes. It is this richness of light, intense colour and the glory of nature which inspired Alexander Joseph Lighting to create its latest one-off, luxury cordless lamp and to name it ‘Autumn’.
‘Autumn’ is the most intricate cordless lamp produced by Alexander Joseph Lighting’s team of experienced craftspeople to date. Produced by hand, using traditional tools, this nickel lamp is a one-of-a-kind featuring gently undulating leaves of silver which appear to be growing from the stem of the lamp. Light dances off the silver foliage and stem which are encased in a large dome of hand-blown glass, coloured a stunning dusk blue. The unique piece is completed with a hand-crafted shade of rich blue, silk satin lined with a delicate rose-patterned white lining.
This statement piece is the only one of its kind and all fittings are nickel, made to order to match the interior. The base of the lamp houses the patent pending battery technology and electronics which offer at least 50 hours of normal use before the lamp requires charging.
Mark Robinson, CEO of Alexander Joseph Lighting said: “Our luxury cordless lamps have taken the interiors market by storm. Designers can now use lighting wherever they wish, without compromising on aesthetics or style with the use of unsightly wires and plugs.”
He added: “At Alexander Joseph we relish the opportunity to push the status quo. We constantly challenge our teams to innovate and be truly creative with their craft. ‘Autumn’ is one of the most complex pieces we’ve ever made, with its combination of intricate metalwork and hand-blown glass. We are thrilled with the spectacular result.”
All fixtures are nickel and made to order to match the silver of the leaves.
As with all Alexander Joseph battery operated lamps, users are guaranteed 52 hours of continuous use per charge, put another way three to four weeks of normal use. Vortex is supplied with a certificate of authenticity at RRP £4,825.
