Its fair to say I was quite excited when I opened the folder of photos sent to me by Victoria of Christchurch based Minnow. The lights below are the result of a collaboration between husband and wife team Carl and Victoria Menary.  Using wood veneer from Auckland and pins, clips and lampholders made exclusively for them by local Christchurch companies, the couple spend their evenings assembling and running their business after the days demands of family and full time work. I was so pleasently surprised to see the design and forms they have arrived at with a material which has definitely had is fair share of time in the lighting limelight. Their offerings are sculptural but simple and I would LOVE to see a line-up of these in a natural interior. Check out their site and their store!
