Salone Satellite - Corker - Max Harper - Melbourne Movement Stand A28

The Corker series of pendant lights is inspired by the iconic cork hats that are linked to Australiana. Corker playfully mocks this cultural iconography in a modern design context.


Salone Satellite - Max Harper - Melbourne Movement Stand A28

Corker comes in two styles and two variations, Skinny and Rotund, straight pendant light and pivoted pendant light. Each piece is hand turned from agglomerated cork; cork being a hardy yet renewable,
bio-degradable and recyclable resource. The wire-bent powdercoated mild steel yoke allows the light to pivot to a range of angles.

These lights are designed and made in Australia. The simplicity in design allows the material to reveal its natural beauty.

Salone Satellite - Exo - Rowan Trunham & Matthew Harding - Melbourne Movement Stand A28


Exo Series is an exciting new range of lights that is highly versatile in its application. Crisp lines and a skeletal structure make for distinct shadows with Exo, a series of suspended lamps designed and made in Australia.

Flat geometric fins frame an integrated LED light source in the versatile Exo range: two different forms, two sizes, functional as pendant, wall mount or table lamp.
