With winter rapidly descending in the southern hemisphere, it's a fitting time to unveil Bailey's superb new finish: Frost.
Like a pearl hanging from a thread, Metropol begins with a single lamp. Its clever form delivers beauty as a sophisticated wall sconce or as stacked singles, doubles and triples – suspended as simple pendants or curated into organic groupings and grand chandeliers.
Central to Metropol’s design is the distinctive trifoliate form in combination with the innovative use of light. Where shadows would normally exist along the converging line of each form, in Metropol, these fine seams are used to wrap a beautiful, soft cast of light around the luminaire.
Metropol’s strength is in its quiet charisma. Its design is one of intricacy and sophistication. Rather than overpowering a space, it leaves room for the architecture to stand out, making it a particularly versatile lighting collection. Through its modular design and refined finishes, Metropol finds its full creative potential in the hands of the architect and designer.
Sebastian Herkner, A multi-award-winning global designer conceived and developed Metropol in close collaboration with Rakumba during his first partnership with an Australian design brand.
The collection comprises four standard colourways with anodised metal finishes in Black or Brass with the glass luminaire is Frosted White or Frosted Pink and can be made in custom finishes for special projects.
