Ilse Crawford’s brass-footed floor lamp design for Kalmar Werkstätten

Maison & Objet designer of the year Ilse Crawford has designed another beautiful floor lamp that rests on a pair of brass feet for her Billy series of lighting. It is created for Austrian design company Kalmar Werkstätten, the Billy BL lamp is supported by a slender rosewood stem and features a tapered matt black lampshade with a brass interior. The material is echoed in the light’s V-shaped support, which fans out at the base of the lamp.

“The space is divided up into zones where families of furniture and lighting have been carefully grouped to encourage and support these activities,” Crawford said.

The design is part of Crawford’s ongoing updates to the brand’s Billy lighting range, incorporating new woods and metals.

“The material palette elevates the Billy concept for upscale interiors while preserving the essential humour of the line,” explained the brand.

There was previously created a table lamp in the Billy range. It similarly used brass and wood as a “subtle, handsome update of a dear old friend”. The successful designer has completed several partnerships with brands, including a recent range of cork and natural-fibre homeware products with Ikea.
