'Sea Anemones' Floor Light Sculptures

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

From simple beech rods patiently cut, sanded, arranged and lacquered, Pia Maria Raeder creates refined functional sculptures that evoke biomorphic forms. Each work in the collection ‘Sea Anemones’ is handmade. These two sculptural floor lamps are the first lighting pieces ever produced by the artist. The dimensions are as follows: H 196 x W 60 x D 48 cm and H 164 x W 67 x D 48 cm.

Every part of the lights is a reference to nature: the blown glasses are inspired by frozen crystals and nerve networks; the texturized structure of the bronze bases remind of tree barks and the lacquered beech rods of the heads are arranged like sea anemones. According to Pia Maria’s own words: 'These pieces are both floor lamps inspired by nature, and peaceful, softly beaming creatures with an endearing presence. They surprise us with a new appearance when you look at them from different angles. All of my ideas are inspired by nature, which is to me the purest form of beauty, perfection and wildness. With my work, I try to create pieces which are as vibrant, unique and surprising as nature.’

Emancipated from its limits, the wood is offered a newfound freedom. The breath of nature seems to animate these intriguing pieces of furniture in which function and poetry fuse. Their magic presence is like the echo of nature’s murmur while their organic waves sketch the movement of life. The ‘Sea Anemones’ collection includes side and coffee tables, a wall mirror, a freestanding mirror, an elegant, enveloping armchair and two floor lamps.
