Quarry Pendant by Benjamin Hubert

Benjamin Hubert has designed the Quarry pendant lamps for De La Espada. 

The pendants are made from hand-turned carrera marble – a very popular material at the moment – and with this, Benjamin Hubert shows yet again his courage to couple products up with materials one would otherwise never use for in that context.

From the designer, “Hand-turned, thin-walled marble pendant lights with roughly finished interior, to add texture and describe the story of stone production.

Quarry utilises the marble’s translucent properties to diffuse the light and reveal its veining. The traditional material is offset by the use of an LED, which allows the large hand-turned internal cavity to remain open and uncluttered. The interior surface is reminiscent of the first cut by renaissance sculptors to rough out a form.

AKFD manage the factories the lamps are produced in, ensuring fair working terms, and actively pushes for safer working conditions.”
