Plume Table Lamp by Rakumba

Designed by Tom Skeehan

PLUME is grounded in a love of materials research and acclaimed Australian designer Tom Skeehan’s transparency of experimentation.

Controlling the distortion of sheet aluminium by forming selective regions, Skeehan manipulates the ductile medium into a graceful three-dimensional form. Beyond material and appearance, Plume pays tribute to Tom’s mentorship from the late Robert Foster with vibrant hues expertly applied by Foster’s iconic F!NK + Co. anodising team.

Through shared joy in discovery, PLUME represents the relationship between light, colour and nothing being ordinary.
