"Craftsmanship is integral to the core of my work, the physicality and composition of materials underpin my creative practice. My aim is to achieve a balance between form and function"Louis Jobst is a decorative lighting designer and architect establishing his studio in 2017 inHackney, London. Jobst designs and manufactures bespoke and batch produced lighting andfurniture exploring relationships between sculpture, product design and architecture. His workutilises the inherent qualities of materials expressing the process in which they are made. Jobst’sgrowing collection of lighting focuses on the dialogue between mass, geometry and proportion.Inspiration comes from architectural components such as arches, columns and monoliths,with reference drawn from early 20th century design and sculpture. Each light has a stackedformation with harmonised proportions and contrasted material qualities. Solid steel and glassmixed with ebonised oak and brass are amongst some of the materials used. The architecturalinfluence is clear with striking geometric silhouettes and heavy robust materials. Jobst describeshis works as “Monuments for the home”.
