Handmade in Mahabalipuram, this table lamp holds a form inspired by the carvings in the region. The form is minimalistic with the materiality of stone contributing to its raw texture and visual weight.
Mahabalipuram (or Mamallapuram), located along southeastern India’s coromandel coast, was a celebrated port city of the Pallavas. The group of monuments consists of rock-cut cave temples, monolithic structures and bas -relief sculptures. Though these majestic edifices were created between the 6th and 9th centuries, the scratch and scrunch of stone, the tonk of hammer and chisel, screech of the drill can still be heard from its current inhabitants - its sculptors. Our collection stemmed from a visit to the town and a hesitation to choose between a Sculpture and Mortar pestle as souvenir. We believe, there is more to offer.
