The Awkward Light was originally launched with Southern Guild in 2011 – and only one was ever made (it was that complicated) – here is it’s design history:
We started the redevelopment process with Karakter Copenhagen in 2012 – where we decided that the light would be made completely black. One meeting in Copenhagen and a series of drawings back and forth, tweaks here and there… and we have the new Awkward Light in 2014.
Patience, we have learnt, is a virtue. Just not a fun one.
This is the first prototype, which Karakter launched at the 2014 Maison d’Objet in Paris.
It’s not yet available on a retail level – but we’ll keep you posted.
We are finally revamping our store and will be closed for the week.
If you could please bear with us.
* Should you urgently need something from our store, please feel free to contact us, and we will make a plan
The store will be open again for the weekend.
Thank you for your patience.
If you need something fun to do this weekend the lovely Nicky Levenberg is having her first solo exhibition at the Nirox Gallery at Arts on Main.
The exhibition showcases some of her beautiful work as well as our SG chair…
