One of the forerunners of industrial style, Original BTC was founded in 1990 as an Oxford-based lighting manufacturer and has now expanded to include five additional British manufacturing brands, together proud recent winners of Elle Decoration’s inaugural ‘Made in the UK’ award and ‘Backer of British Design’ nominee in the Homes & Gardens Designer Awards 2014.
Previously available in polished aluminium only, Original BTC’s ‘Giant’ pendant (see image above) is launching for SS14 in a palette of easy colours. Inspired by traditional factory fittings, the Giant’s powder coated aluminium shade is matched with Original BTC’s signature braided metal cable and a wired glass visor to prevent glare and diffuse light. Available in three sizes (33cm, 36cm and 41cm shade diameter), Giant pendants can be grouped or used in rows for added impact.
Giant pendants in beige, black and stone grey in three sizes. From £199 – £275.
We love Original BTC lighting such as the floor lamp above and stunning copper lamp, below. In simple, timeless shapes and exquisitely made, the designs often imitated but never bettered, in our view.
