London-based bespoke sculptural lighting studio, Cameron Design House, unveiled its striking new Kasvaa light at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Working in partnership with award-winning garden designer, Chris Beardshaw, the studio’s latest suspended creation formed a key focal point within The Morgan Stanley Garden.
The Kasvaa sculptural light considers a departure from linear practices towards a more circular approach, focusing on sustainable design with the use of 100% recycled brass to form the core structure of the piece.
Inspired by the natural forms of pollen, seed heads and flowers, Cameron Design House has created this organic, geometric piece with a focus on enduring design and the re-use of materials.
“The starting point for the design was to understand the design vision for the garden; we wanted to create something striking, without appearing alien or out of place,” explains Simeon Chilvers, MD of Cameron Design House. “It was important for us to embrace the key theme of sustainability and quality without compromise, to create a centrepiece befitting this ambitious goal.”
A secondary theme, and one that contributes more literally to the form of the piece, was the idea of entropy – moving from order to disorder. This led to Cameron Design House’s exploration of the Steinmetz solid: a geometric problem solved by the German mathematician, Charles Proteus Steinmetz.
Suitable for both interior and exterior use, Kasvaa is illuminated from the centre, reflecting the light off the internal polished surfaces for maximum effect. The design can be hung as a pendant, mounted on the ground or on a podium, with bespoke options available.
