OF THE MATTER
The balance and integrity in the designs, aligning more with timeless classicism over the eternal chase for the latest trends is the EMBASSY brand’s aspiration.
We knew from the very start that we would like to work with glass, based on the long tradition of the glass-making craft which in Poland stretches back for many centuries. Nowadays, glass manufacturing is in decline, but it can still become really appreciated, also thanks to the projects such as ours.
In the glass works, we watch entranced when one after another, glass bubbles are being blown to become our lampshades – this is the process whose charm affects everyone!
In our studio, each new project is born slowly. We patiently go through the phase of sketching different variants before the new lamp takes its final shape. We pay a lot of attention to details, because they are the evidence of the true class of the objects we surround ourselves with.
In a word: we do not drink fine wine from plastic glasses 🙂
The components of our lamps are made from natural materials. We value stone, wood, ceramics and a large part of the collection is made of solid natural brass. We do not try to idealize the surface of brass or to suppress its characteristics with lacquering. Just as with old wood, it has the right to have cavities or blemishes, it is its nature. Brass darkens over time and develops a patina, this is its right and its charm. It is not fingerprint resistant. We create for people who respect this truth about the material and find in it a non-intrusive and non-idealised beauty.
