Kasvaa: Artistry of Light, the Conceptual Beauty of Nature
03/06/2019 - London-based bespoke sculptural lighting studio, Cameron Design House is delighted to introduce its latest illuminated creation, the Kasvaa pendant light.

The first of Cameron Design House’s illuminated pieces to be created for both outdoor and indoor use, the Kasvaa sculptural pendant unites the artistry of light with the conceptual beauty of nature. Considering how we can move away from linear practices towards a more circular approach, Kasvaa focuses 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.

Working in partnership with award-winning garden designer, Chris Beardshaw, the new Kasvaa light was displayed to form a key focal point within The Morgan Stanley Garden at this year’s world-renowned RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

"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. It was important for us to embrace the key theme of sustainability and quality without compromise, to create a centrepiece befitting of this ambitious goal." SIMEON CHILVERS, Managing Director of Cameron Design House

"The piece appears chaotic from most angles but becomes orderly when viewed along its axis. Although the piece looks complex, it is actually a form governed by simple rules - a 6x6 grid of holes cut in three directions within a sphere. However, made from 100% recycled solid brass the form was far from simple to create, requiring countless hours of mould making, casting, machining, polishing and assembly." IAN CAMERON, Creative Director of Cameron Design House

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. Kasvaa will be illuminated from the centre, reflecting the light off the internal polished surfaces for maximum effect. The Kasvaa is suitable for both interior and exterior use, and can either be hung as a pendant, mounted on the ground or on a podium. Bespoke options and design service are also available.
