Peter Nelson lighting

Peter Nelson FA series lighting

twentytwentyone is excited to exclusively offer the last remaining warehouse stock of Peter Nelson lighting.

The Austrian-born Peter Nelson (1928 – 2009) spent the early part of his career working in the aeronautics industry. Amongst other projects, he worked with Howard Hughes on the development of the triple-tailed, four-engined Lockheed Constellation aircraft.

In 1961 Nelson left the aeronautical industry to concentrate solely on lighting design, founding the company Architectural Lighting.

Series-20

Inspired by Buckminster Fuller’s maxim of doing more with less, his lighting designs have a refined technical appearance and precision engineered finish that reflects his background in aircraft design.

The cuboid switch blocks hand-milled from solid aluminium that feature on many of his table and floor lights are a characteristic detail.

A characteristic design detail of a Peter Nelson lightThese exemplary modernist lights were enthusiastically received on their launch and were stocked in Habitat and Heals during the 1960s.

Although Nelson’s designs are no longer in production, the final tranche of table, floor and wall/ceiling lights is now available to view and purchase exclusively at twentytwentyone.

Peter Nelson FS series lightAll lights are offered at 25% off the original price (please note that the prices given on our website include the 25% discount), with limited numbers of each design are available.

twentytwentyone is delighted to be able to present such an important collection of lights by an often-overlooked but highly influential British designer.

On show for the duration of the London Design Festival, ‘Marker, plus twenty’ celebrates the launch of Marker, the new addition to Barber & Osgerby’s family of Hotaru paper lanterns.

The exhibition also references twentytwentyone’s 20th anniversary and celebrates the long-standing collaboration between the two companies.

'Marker, plus twenty' exhibition

This highly personal display consists of twenty objects selected from Edward and Jay’s personal collection of curiosities from around the world, accumulated over many years. “There are,” the designers note, “quite a few gaps on our shelves at the moment.”

The objects on display include both furniture and product design and more humble every day objects, ranging from a Thonet chair to a Japanese glass fishing net float.

Objects in the 'Marker, plus twenty' exhibition

Accumulated over many years, these items have been selected for their form, material or craftsmanship. Although strikingly diverse in scale, function, value and age, each object has been an inspiration in some way or other.

Together they offer an intriguing insight into the influences and interests of one of Britain’s foremost design duos.
