A bold step away from classic ceramic design can be found in UPLIGHT and DOWNLIGHT of the porcelain lighting series. It uses a traditional technique that exploits the translucency of this strikingly delicate material, but delivers it towards a more forward looking formal approach. In casting the forms of mass-produced industrial lamps (a pendant light and one wall mounted) FREDRIKSON-STALLARD enrich their material qualities with great sensitivity to high-modern industrial aesthetics while at the same time the sumptuous and exclusive material is given an ascetic twist.
