Named Capricorn, the piece was designed by Rosie Ridgway of April Hamilton Design. Rosie said “I covered Alexander Joseph’s cordless lamps in a blog not long after they had launched. Their products stuck me as the first genuinely new concept for the interiors sector in a long time. Over the past year I’ve come to know the people behind the business, their ethics and passion for handmade pieces, so I was delighted to be asked to design their very first floor lamp.
The inspiration for the lamp came whilst holidaying in Sri Lanka. Mindfulness through meditation & yoga helps me to focus and rationalise ideas, creating a zen like state brings peace and the tranquillity needed to focus on details. I wanted to capture this feeling and state of being in this floor lamp.
Whist on a shopping trip in Colombo I spotted a tie-dyed tassel and immediately decided it had to be at the centre of the piece. I also wanted to capture something of the night sky, so commissioned a beautiful handblown glass sphere to suspend the tassel from. I wanted the structure to echo the frame of an Asian temple bell”.
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. Capricorn is supplied with a certificate of authenticity at RRP £3,690.
