Lateralis is a contemporary table lamp by Ben McCarthy that combines key materials. The mouth blown glass, stained ash wood and brass components mix together in a well defined complimentary palette. Lateralis began from experiment into how complex processes and diverse materials could be brought together to create something unique. Though the form seems to reference a familiar oil lamp, there is a distinct contemporary aesthetic that shines through.
The curvaceous form of the lamp allows light to play off the different textures. Reflections of the wood appear in the polished brass while light diffuses through the glass and across the wood base; while there is a lot going on in a small space, it all works effortlessly.
Lateralis was awarded German Design Award 2016: Special Mention for Excellent Product Design
