About

- black walnut - antique drill bit - cloth wrapped lamp cord - fully dimmable oil rubbed bronze fixture - tungsten bulbs. 7 x 5 x 18 inches (L x W x H.) Wired for 120 v outlets unless 220 v is requested, everything is made to order and is of the highest heirloom quality. The Bits lighting series is centered around the antique Auger drill bits featured in each piece. These drill bits have been used for centuries in fine woodworking,and represent a bygone era of craftsmanship and hand power. The elegant simplicity of this spiral structure was first known to have been used by Archimedes (c. 250 BCE) to push water uphill, and is still used in virtually every avenue of human industry from agriculture to mining to fabrication. Sam Keene is an artist and furniture maker working in Brooklyn, NY. Each piece is handcrafted by the artist, ensuring that everything leaving the shop is of heirloom quality, and made with superior craftsmanship and care. The form and style of the work pays tribute to mid century masters, but shows a contemporary voice. Clean geometric lines pair with organic materials and patinas, balancing the complexity of nature with a refined form. Everything is made to order, and we are always happy to tailor designs or dimensions to meet a clients' specific needs. Don't hesitate to contact us for custom work.
