Nau Design - Jolly light

Nau launches bi-directional lighting

The new suspension light from up-and-coming Australian brand Nau features two lamp heads looking in opposite directions.

The cheerful Jolly collection by Melbourne designer Kate Stokes plays with contrasting shapes and materials, combining opal and hand-blown glass shades with minimal, monochromatic metal rods. The design is also available as single pendant or a small wall light. Colour options include black, eucalyptus green, burgundy and satin-polished brass.

Nau was founded last year by Richard Munao, who ventured into producing contemporary Australian design after turning what started in 1997 as a little Sydney showroom named Cult Design into one of the leading full-service design retailers in the country. The brand collaborates with some of the country’s most exciting talents, including Tom Fereday and Adam Goodrum. Its latest additions to the permanent collection, including the Jolly lights, were shown at ICFF in New York last month.

Kate Stokes also creates furniture and lighting pieces for her own design studio Coco Flip, which she started with her husband Haslett Grounds.
