Parlour Lighting from Donna Bates- 06.03.13

Parlour Lighting from Donna Bates. This playful series of lamps was inspired by the designer’s early years growing up on a farmyard near Ballyronan, Co. Derry. They look rather industrial and reminded me initially of lab glassware, but actually trace their origins to the milking parlor! The shape of the lamps is taken from the forms of receiving jars which are used to collect milk in the dairy. I love the rural, yet industrial inspiration! More photos on the next page.

The pieces were inspired by receiving containers in the milking parlor and are still made by hand.

This is an amazing idea. The lamps looks securely on place and the glass reflection would make the light well disperse throughout the place. At a first glance, it looks like a jar hanging at the top of the table. Very smart design, thank you for sharing great pictures.
