TYPE B LIGHT
VICKI | 2017
Concept, design and development.
Type B is a simple and practical ceramic pendant light which takes inspiration from the cap of the 'Type B' style pillar post boxes that are seen throughout the United Kingdom.
The seminal pillar box brought communities together and continues to exude a history, strength and character amongst our landscapes, despite an overall decline in use. By referencing these highly regarded roadside wardens, the pendant lights serve as a way to preserve and celebrate British heritage whilst instilling a familiarity within the built environment.
A luxurious 'pillar box red' ceramic glaze brings the shape of the pendant to life and the iconic silhouette is instantly recognisable. A selection of alternative colours are available to add new meaning to an already familiar shape, making it suitable for a variety of home, office and hospitality surroundings.
