The light Seam One is a modern interpretation of a classic table light.
Made of three firmly bonded components of powder-coated, folded sheet aluminium, the number of parts has been reduced to the essentials to provide the strongest focus on the element of light itself. Applying simple but elaborated construction methods and balanced proportions, the light reflects e15's brand ethos of high grade materials paired with extraordinary craftsmanship.

For e15, Mark Holmes developed a series of aluminum lights with designs, materials and workmanship that fit perfectly into e15’s existing collections. His aim was to produce a simple, modern interpretation of the classic desk light while keeping the number of components to a minimum and the construction simple. The proportions of his designs are as balanced as possible to provide the strongest possible focus on the element of light itself.
