Nocturne is based on the idea that the best form always follows function. Their lamps are designed with a clean, minimal aesthetic in mind, but are nevertheless luxurious in colour, finish and design.
‘Our materials, brass, sustainably-sourced hard-woods and aluminium are used to construct lamps to the highest level of craftsmanship designed to last and age beautifully over time.’
Nocturne was established by Simon Day in 2011 drawing design inspiration from architecture, workshop machinery and the 20th-century design sensibilities of companies and designers such as Kandya, Stag and PEL, Ernest Race, Anni Albers, Frank Guille, Eileen Gray and Jean Prouve.
From its workshop in Manchester, Simon leads a small team of specialist craftspeople making lamps to order.
