Celebrate the fith year anniversary of Gant Lights with us!
They have made a special limited edition of their stylised C1 pendant light with over 300-year-old oak wood sourced straight from historic city palace in Berlin.
The foundation from Märkische spruce and pine wood, as well as the oak planks, have been the fundament of the castle since 1680 as a royal residence and after its destruction the palace of the republic of Germany.
When the castle first was build the trees were between 100 and 150 years old. The historical wood was only recently recovered during the reconstruction work of the Berlin Humboldforum at the Castle place. The wood lay below the groundwater for hundreds of years were it slowly turned into black, hard bog oak. During this time, the tannic acid of oakwood reacted with the iron salts of the groundwater. Through this chemical process, the wood received its individual, partly bluish-black coloration and its individual structure. The bog oak is then carefully sculpted by hand into the limited edition pendant light.
The history-rich oak wood, combined with rough concrete, refers to the hometown of GANTlights and creates five characteristic and unmistakable individual pieces with Berlin history. In all lampshades a pictogram of the Berlin city castle was milled and individually marked with 24 karat gold leaf. Each [C1] limited edition is handed over with a certificate of authenticity.
The handmade lampshade comes pre-assembled with a high-quality LED strip, 2 meter black textile cable, wire rope suspension, fastening material and a canopy made of matt steel.
Please ensure that your ceiling can bear the weight of this one of a kind light.
