Douglas and Bec have released a new collection of furniture and lighting entitled ‘Line’. The collection pays homage to sculptor Alexander Calder, combining his habitual playfulness with Bec’s simple yet formal combination of honest materials.

“I feel this new work is a natural progression and very much in keeping with our reductive approach. It is the same visual language but put together with new materials. Even though it uses less timber and the timber had been superseded by hard materials such as steel and glass I still think there is a strong feminine presence.”

The new collection witnesses a minor movement from an all timber aesthetic to glass, brass, steel and painted timber finishes. These materials have been present in Douglas and Bec’s pervious work but are more honoured in these new pieces. Along with a shift in aesthetic direction we see an introduction of a new process and technology using ‘blackened brass’ which is the chemical darkening of the brass taking the traditional gold appearance and turning it in to a dark pearl. The light globes themselves have been updated to use Phillips state of the art LED blubs.

This collection includes a floor lamp, table lamp, three multi-armed manoeuvrable pendant lights and side tables. The colour palette extends to a dark smoky grey and a beautiful matte white combined with a mix of brass and pink hues that are forever present in Douglas and Bec’s work.

The new collection will be available in Australia on May 15th via their Collingwood, Melbourne store.

We’ve previously featured other products by Douglas and Bec in Yellowtrace Spotlight // April 2014 Edition and Yellowtrace Spotlight // October 2014 Edition.
