Barker and Stonehouse is delighted to unveil an exquisite luminous sculpture commissioned exclusively for the company’s Battersea showroom.
The Sculptural Crane Light was designed and created by French architect, artist and salvage historian Axel Olivier Icard. Combining a large 1980s surgical light with a salvaged 1970s hydraulic steel crane, Icard has allowed each element to continue its story.
Axel Olivier Icard comments: “Both of these rare, vintage items were hunted down, revived and reimagined using painstaking renovation techniques, before being welded and rewired to create the unique end-piece.”
Perfect for urban, contemporary or retro living spaces, the light sculpture provides a focus point for any setting and is a timeless investment.
Barker and Stonehouse Creative Manager Claire Hornby commissioned the work after being impressed with the artist’s collection at the Maison et Objet exhibition in Paris.
Claire comments: “The Sculptural Crane Light is the archetype of contemporary cool. It is both practical and functional while being visually striking.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer this stunning light at our London showroom and can commission other similar pieces with the artist to suit the requirements of individual customers.”
