The lighting collection NIE is a creation of the studio Bentu Design based in Guangzhou.
The lightings collection NIE signed by Bentu Design contains two desk lamps (one with a concrete base and the other one without) and also a floor lamp available in two sizes; all made of concrete, glass and aluminum.
The table lamp NIE is characterized by its spherical shape. The lamp is half made of concrete and half made of glass.
The version without the base gives to the lamp a perfectly rounded design. The version including the concerte base offers a more geometrical design by adding to the round design a rectangular base.
Bentu Design’s furniture derives it’s uniqueness from the simplicity of it’s forms and it’s materials. Designed and manufactured by the designers of Studio Bentu themselves, these lamps, coffee tables, cup-boards and seats all have in common the use of concrete. This material that is usually reserved for construction use, finds here a certain nobility. The patterns that are created by the grains of this material once it flowed and unmolded is what gives the creations of Studio Bentu their originality. Accompanied at times finishings that are more valuable like marble or polished brass, making concrete a more suitable material for furniture.
