Presenting Port – a sculptural glass monolith by internationally renowned Australian-based designer, Tom Fereday.
For this latest collaboration, Tom has crafted a lighting collection from optically pure crystal glass. Its architectural form is heightened by hand finished brass or aluminium detailing, captivating the viewer with contrasting textures and glowing illumination.
Port can be reversed simply by flipping the glass body to provide two varied moods and light interactions. In one orientation, Port features a stepped, pyramid-like pattern, sand-blasted to create a finely textured frosted effect; the other side, un patterned, glimmers with a pristine polish. When switched on, Port creates the illusion of a completely invisible light source, emitting a sophisticated, abstract glow.
