Hommage Department is a recently launched brand who have developed a range of pendant and table lamps inspired by art, architecture and industrial design. Sleek and unconventional they pair pure materials - porcelain, concrete and wood - combined with classic Edison bulbs.
Pigments are added to the porcelain when it is still liquid, which lends the colors a pure, intensely matt look. Glazed colors, on the other hand, are strong and shiny. It is this contrast that results in a versatile collection ranging from richly decorated products to minimalist design.
Concrete is a fascinating industrial material that the in-house team transform into mirror-smooth shapes. They apply pigments to the concrete when it is still liquid, which lends the colors a pure, earthy look. The incidence of light brings the minimalist lines and geometrical surfaces (Art Deco in style) to life.
The various dark and light woods used have visible graining and knots which form the basis for the decoration of these lamps. The wood is processed with a specific kind of oil, giving the surface a more intense look: natural and minimalist.
These handmade products are just as attractive as separate decorative elements in a interiors scheme but also offer many possibilities for playful combinations.
