Overlay II Sculpted Floor Lamp by Paul Matter



Overlay II - sculpted floor lamp by Paul Matter OVERLAY II Burnt steel with Burnt brass and smoked Murano glass Dimensions: H 90" x D 18" Started with the idea of drafting a pattern on paper for a garment with free flowing 3-D folds and arresting these fabric folds in metal, Kallol Datta, created a series of light objects that fuse sculptural form with hand worn materials. All the lights are completely handcrafted in beaten and casted metal bringing Industrial uniqueness to each object. The appearance of surfaces and textures on objects and materials are manually achieved with age old technique such as patina and burning. Overlay & underlay is a collection of lights born from a collaboration with clothes maker, Kallol Datta. The collaboration explores different approaches to light design, that blend the traditional and the experimental, form and function, detail and benign. Paul Matter Paul Matter is a contemporary light design studio that explores light design by blending the traditional with the experimental, form with function, and detail with the ordinary. The longevity of the designs is ensured by combining timeless visual language with materials that refine with age. The studio works closely with master craftsmen, developing handcrafted products, finished and assembled with great attention to detail, one piece at a time. Drawing from a rich palette, the materials used include aged brass, copper, stone, leather and blown glass. All our lamps can be wired according to each country. If sold to the USA it will be wired for the USA for instance.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia Furniture

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
