The Parison Table Light is a collision of technology and craft. Its faceted, digitally forged form is manifested through the warmth of a frosted glass shade, and anchored at the base by a delicate slither of brass.
The final effect is a soft milky table sculpture which emanates light, resembling a soap bubble resting on a tabletop. As a piece, the Parison Table light quietly anchors a room, subtly and deliberately imperfect, glowing softly and holding its own.
Cheshire Architects move organically from huge institutional and urban master-planning work to the digital fabrication of bespoke door handles and the hand-finishing of furniture. This is a practice formed around the depth of its ideologies, rather than the thinness of styles and project types. They operate across fields of luxury and poverty, newness and age, roughness and refinement, running parallel programs of research, writing, lecturing, publishing and university teaching. Cheshire was founded in New Zealand in 2004.
