Henry Wilson Combines Rational Utility With Sculptural Expression

Studio Henry Wilson‘s work combines a rational utility with an element of sculptural expression.

There are a clear form and function in their products, but it’s important they also have a feeling.

“We are interested in the awkward beauty that comes from something made by hand. We like to explore how imperfection can be introduced into an industrial process, to make something at scale that retains a sense of individual charm.”

The Surface Sconce is an ambient, sculptural light cast in two halves from solid gunmetal. Each casting is manufactured in small batches meaning slight variations will occur from piece to piece. Production marks may include slight pour ripples or surface pitting.
