Tom Raffield's NEW Gwenen Lighting Range invites you to enchant your home with the beauty of nature and the artistry of high quality craftsmanship. His latest lighting collection is a celebration of organic forms and sustainable design, bringing a touch of elegance and wonder to any living space.

Making it a true masterpiece, each wooden wonder is a testament to the skill and dedication of the artisans involved, ensuring that every detail is executed to perfection. This mesmerising range, inspired by the intricate layering found in the natural world, introduces two exceptional pieces – the Gwenen Pendant and the Gwenen Floor Light.

Named after the Cornish word for ‘bee’, the Gwenen Lighting Range pays homage to the hexagonal forms that home the vital pollinators. Nature has always been a profound source of inspiration in Tom Raffield’s design, and the Gwenen Lighting Range is a testament to this connection.

Elevate your living spaces with the transformative power of statement lighting from Tom Raffield's Gwenen Range. Statement lighting goes beyond mere illumination; it becomes a captivating focal point that defines and enhances the atmosphere of a room. 

Six layers of concentric veneer loops are thoughtfully layered to create a design that offers a fresh appearance from every perspective. Whether gazed upon from the side, or from underneath, the Gwenen is a sophisticated beauty.  

“The Gwenen Lighting Range reflects my deep admiration for the beauty and complexity found within nature. In crafting each piece, we sought to capture the intricate layering and organic forms that make the natural world so captivating.”

— Tom Raffield, Founder and Designer
