Language of Light – The Entwine Collection by Satelight Design
Entwine is the latest collection by Melbourne based lighting design and manufacturing studio Satelight. Comprising of the Entwine pendant, Unwind wall and ceiling light, and the String Theory wall light, Entwine is a narrative that takes shape within the coils of the rope and tells the story of a journey in light.
Designed and created by Duncan Ward and Ben Merrylees for Satelight Design, the various interweaving paths and connections make the Entwine Collection part lighting fixture and part sculptural statement. “I envisioned the Entwine lighting pieces as beautiful jewellery adorning spaces,” states Satelight Design Director Duncan Ward. “My ultimate vision is for the lighting to reflect the unique personality of each space whilst incorporating the lives of the design with each individual user.” Fusing woven rope, brass and timber together, the highly customisable collection can be used to create lighting installations in both residential and commercial projects.
Entwine builds on Satelight’s strong connection to local design and manufacturing, as well as their impressive reputation for the creation of custom designer lighting. “At Satelight we work with local craftspeople and artisans whilst creating a strong connection to the Victorian arts community,” explains Duncan. “We want the Entwine Collection to truly express our creativity whilst using innovative installation techniques to develop a completely new language of light.”
“My ultimate vision is for the lighting to reflect the unique personality of each space whilst incorporating the lives of the design with each individual user.”
Aware of the critical importance of lighting to any space, Satelight has used the Entwine collection to deliver new stories around lighting design and technology. Through the creation of movement in the coils of light, the Entwine collection cultivates a dramatic sense of emotion for a residential or commercial space. “We want to create lighting elements that the user can interact with,” states Duncan. “Given the inherent durability of the woven material and the use of Ip 65 rated LED strip, we envisage the collection having capabilities in numerous environments.”
The Entwine collection is comprised of customisable statement pieces that utilise creative design and innovative technology to establish sculptural lighting fixtures that are designed to be worn like jewellery within a space. Whilst telling the story of a journey in light, the Entwine also represents the quest of Duncan Ward and Ben Merrylees to establish a new language around lighting installations, in the process reaffirming Satelight‘s commitment to local design and manufacturing.
