One of the most striking things about Volker Haug Studio is not, in fact, the elegant lighting collections it’s best known for, nor its gorgeous collaborations with interior designers all across the world. It’s unexpectedly a quite understated characteristic — the studio’s output is, wholeheartedly and incomparably, collaborative.

Within the form of lighting design, their series of products — refined works of lighting from chandeliers to pendants to sconces to surface fittings — are produced as a collective mind from the converted 1940s industrial building that houses their workshop and studio in Melbourne. With the team’s diverse creative prowess behind each design, and guided by the artistic momentum the studio has built up over a decade and a half, they delve into novel manipulations of materials and processes in ways that create the distinct and distinguished feel of their collections.

This season, the studio collaborated on Tableton (see it here and here). An expansion in multiple regards, the introduction of Tableton marks an addition to the highly regarded Anton series, which is made up of striking sconces. And, most excitingly, it debuts as the studio’s first-ever table lamp.

In line with the ethos of the Anton series (first released in 2018), Tableton presents a visual and tactile investigation of material and light. Classic processes of melting and pouring capture the integrity and purity of each of the metals — it currently comes in gunmetal bronze or aluminium — with the material itself boasting individual characteristics that draw the eye to the textural qualities of each piece.

Tableton is handmade in Melbourne, poured as a single piece of metal using traditional sand casting methods that impress textural elements into the solidified object. The table lamps come in Small or Tall sizes, and can be left with the cast surface either untreated or semi-polished.

From a metaphoric perspective, the idea that Tableton is the studio’s inaugural product that’s within arm’s reach and directly touchable, speaks to the larger statement on where the studio has been taking its practice in the last, crisis filled year and a half.

Last March, for Melbourne Design Week, the studio engaged the local design scene by inviting other homebound designers into the studio for a group exhibition. This new venture spoke, both publicly and artistically, to the under-the-radar communal spirit of their practice.

With their steadfast ethos of collaboration and a team contributing all different sorts of artistic practices to the vernacular of lighting design, Volker Haug Studio’s Tableton is both a product and a process whose introduction is to be celebrated.
