'Hector & Dexter Light' are derived from our linear pendant offering, 'The Long Light.' They were created as an extension to the range to fulfil additional lighting needs where our products 'The Long Light' and 'The Little Light' were not always suitable.

'Dexter' consists of ten sides, forming a decahedron that acts as a versatile cylindrical option. The concept behind its design was to ensure that regardless of where it is viewed from, the pendant maintains a consistent aesthetic appearance from all angles. 'Hector' is a modern interpretation of the classic lampshade form, featuring a six-sided hexagonal shape. It is ideal for those who are seeking to blend traditional and modern aesthetics within their home. Both of these pendants were designed to resonate aesthetically with our existing products. This is accomplished by once again utilising the production process of folded sheet metal, along with a bold powder-coat colour finish and a similar minimalist design approach. A distinctive recurring design feature throughout the range is the way light shines through the gaps where each piece joins. This idea became apparent during the development process, prompting us to intentionally accentuate the joins as a design feature.

Designed, developed and manufactured in Auckland, New Zealand.
