Ross Gardam’s latest work, the Arbour Linear Pendant, is a continual timber solid, formed to unite space and celebrate the beauty of the natural. Created by the divergence of two curves that flow along and around the product. The body of the pendant is machined from various solid timbers, allowing the more technical aspects of the light to be hidden internally, leaving the external form pure to the eye.
‘Working in partnership with our manufacturer, utilising 5-axis machining was key to the success of Arbour, it allowed us to explore a more complex form which we could not achieve using traditional timber processes’ says Gardam
Arbour is a linear timber light that creates the perfect downward luminosity. The subtle curves of the Solid Walnut, Rock Maple, or Oak marries perfectly with the hard edges of the hand-polished champagne anodised aluminium elements.
‘As with all products we work on in the studio, context plays an important role in defining the overall outcome. Arbour’s intriguing form aims to accent interiors, providing a natural focal area for bringing people together.’ Gardam says.
The Arbour Linear Pendant is available through Ross Gardam’s studio and Stylecraft in Australia and Singapore.
