Available exclusively to WSworkshop in Queensland, we are proudly offering the debut lighting collection from instore favourite - IE Francis.
The Loop pendant is a simple lamp wet-formed from a single piece of Italian vegetable tanned leather. The lamps are formed on a custom made 20 tonne press in the northern suburbs of Melbourne.
Isaac Francis is a Melbourne based maker and industrial designer. He founded his studio in 2011 with a focus on materiality, simplicity and quality. His work is strongly process and material driven, drawing inspiration from many traditional craft processes. Working as a boot-maker in his early days, he gained a strong understanding of leather and this has translated into his products.
All products are made by hand to order in his small workshop in Brunswick East, Victoria.
The leather used is sourced from tanneries in New Zealand, Italy and Brazil. All brass hardware is made in the USA.
