Originally a commission centrepiece for a long stairwell, Honesty has since been produced in so many configurations and lengths we’ve lost count. A cluster of cables hold large, glass shades intermittently along the length of the fitting. At each shade, a cluster of exposed candle bulbs ends within, with the other cables continuing to the next shades and on and the final 3 supporting cables ending in the Bowles and Linares trademark fully exposed cluster at the base.
The design followed on from FArol chandelier. Crafted in intricately detailed “negra” finished metalwork, hand blown, rippled large open ended glass shades in either amber, clear or sand blasted finish, with early design electric twisted cable. Neutral, live and earth are insulated and twisted together, openly expressing their interdependence and designed when electricity first became a domestic utility and wiring was commonly installed externally on a wall surface. The Honesty fixture’s overall function is getting light to where it’s needed using only the necessary components, crafted, formed and held together in the most honest way possible. The decorative appeal is a by product of the designers use of strong materials, craft and attention to detail.
Honesty is available as single and multiple shades in many configurations and lengths and can be produced to custom on request.
