Design Freshwest, 2009
Natural oak frame, cast iron
Made in The Netherlands by Moooi

The Brave New World Lamp started as a concept piece of random thought-initiated construction. Following the example of old Far Eastern bamboo scaffolding the Brave New World Lamp was developed without a design or plan in place however each piece of wood is carefully notched and pegged together to form an integral part of the overall mechanical structure. The limitations of using small pieces of wood to create a large form allowed the design process to be as responsive as possible. Much like a sculptures' relationship to their material.

Marcus Beck & Simon Macro gained first class honors in fine art from Manchester Metropolitan & University of Brighton. After graduating, Marcus concentrated on the production of limited edition furniture, whilst Simon worked with renowned designer Thomas Heatherwick. Having known each other since childhood, and sharing the same design ideals, Marcus & Simon combined to establish Freshwest in 2005. Since their establishment, Freshwest focuses on self initiated concept pieces as well as award winning contracts in furniture, interiors and branding. The studio's ethos is never to be restricted to a single design discipline and to experiment with different ideas & genres.
