Serif Lamp

 - 

Marina Declarey

The Serif Lamp, fruit of an encounter between designer Marina Declarey and Maison Fey which has been perpetuating its sheathing know-how since 1910, espouses typographical eloquence to shed light on the outstanding craftsmanship of this century-old, "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant"-labeled (Living Heritage Company) establishment. By reiterating the curtain-rail leather-sheathing process on a dazzling arch, Serif renders the meticulousness and sophistication of the artisanal skill visible. This bespoke decorative, high-styled lighting fixture plays on the movement of minimalism and subtlety to highlight facets of the material and the scope of craftsmanship, culminating with saddle-stitching fringing the structural periphery. To add an ultimate touch to the lamp, an Italian lava-rock sphere, whose natural porosity reflects the beauty of the raw leather gleaming on the structure, bestows weight on the creation yet underscores its ethereal demeanor though an elegant counterpoint.
