A scalable, modular lighting system centred around a 3-spoke component, Oslin was Conceived to offer a decorative lighting solution for use across a multitude of environments. From bedside lighting to large-scale chandeliers and bespoke architectural installations, Oslin is designed to create a focal point in any interior.

The collection draws inspiration from structures found in nature, resulting in arrangements that span organic branching arrays to geometric forms with closed diamond and octagonal loops. All of which are accented by a softly shaped hand-blown glass shade.

The 3-spoke connector at the heart of Oslin’s design is cast from solid Brass in the UK using a unique moulding version of the lost-wax process. The design utilises this method to achieve the strength and precision required to support the systemised design.
