UNEARTHING NATURE IN STEEL

Normally seen as an industrial material, there is a softer organic side to steel. It can be transformed into a delicate tree branch, a sturdy oak bough, or an abundant grape vine, but fully unleashing the potential of this material takes a masterful craftsman with an aesthetic eye. For almost 25 years, Hammerton artisans have pursued the art of transforming cold raw steel into warm and elegant fixtures. With current contemporary design making increasing use of organic elements, this artful approach to lighting elevates a variety of today’s interior styles.

Take a visual tour below to see how our nature-inspired metal fixtures can transform the look of a space.

INTERPRETIVE - CONTEMPORARY, TRANSITIONAL AND URBAN

Current contemporary interiors frequently take advantage of nature-inspired elements, especially those that reinterpret or simplify the textures and shapes. Combining a grass motif or a slim branch with a contemporary fixture style adds an intriguing tension between the organic and the man-made that heightens its design impact.

REALISTIC - RUSTIC AND TRADITIONAL

This is how it all began! Hammerton cut its teeth creating rustic mountain styles that became popular in Rocky Mountain resort communities in the 1990’s. Organic designs have come a long way from our early pine cone days, branching out to include delicate grapevines, colorful blown glass buds on dainty tree sprigs, and much more. But for those classic mountain cabins and warm traditional homes, Hammerton’s classic fixtures will always be relevant.
