Designers Tom Chung and Jordan Murphy, the duo behind the instantly recognizable, industrial Cast Pendant design, have adapted the small but mighty shade concept for wall applications. With a presence that rivals its functionality, the compact new Cast Sconce Wall Lamp unites triangular, linear and round elements into a sophisticated geometric silhouette that contributes to the room’s ambience both when the lamp is on and off.
What does it really mean for a design to be timeless? At MENU, they apply the term to concepts that carry archetypal weight, harking back to bygone eras and echoing familiar forms. At the same time, these designs’ simplicity makes them unquestionably modern. There is little ornamentation, and every element carries meaning and purpose. Such is the nature of the Cast Lighting Series. Chung and Murphy based the original cast aluminum pendant on age-old plumb weights that masons and carpenters have been hanging from lines since ancient Egyptian times to establish a true vertical.
Continuing the pendants’ graphic expression, the Cast Sconce Wall Lamp also incorporates new components to establish a distinct identity. So while it beautifully complements the Cast Pendants, the wall lamp also hangs comfortably on its own, bringing soft, glare-free light to living spaces, hotel rooms, or passage areas. The thoughtfully designed brushed brass vertical bar and mounting plate create an engaging form that naturally assimilates into the décor of any space. Like the Cast Pendants, the Cast Sconce Wall Lamp is designed for both commercial and residential use.
