In the legacy of a father’s machine shop, a discovery: “heat-tones,” a spectrum of color born from the transformation of steel under heat. These chromatic shifts during machining, cutting, grinding, or heat treatment become the genesis of the Heat Treat Lamp Series.

Our lamps, crafted from standard, off-the-shelf steel profiles, undergo a metamorphosis under varying heat sources, resulting in unique textures and finishes. Each lamp is a living testament to the transformative power of heat, an artistic exploration of the inherent beauty found in industrial processes.

A marriage of the mundane and the unexpected, the Heat Treat Lamp Series illuminates the intersection of craft, materiality, and the artistic potential of the ordinary.
