Projects With Raison d’être

January 20, 2015 | By | 2 Replies More

We recently got a request referencing this previous post about SKITSCH.  Their products are qualitative craftsmanship at its best and known as a company that focuses on emerging designers and artisans. The request was from a design enthusiast wanting the cost of this fabulous Floor Lamp!

The cost is 750.00€ (about $951.86 USD).  Click here for details and click here to learn more about the Brazilian design team two brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana (or here for their website), but I would stick with SKITSCH to purchase.

SKITSCH has a large group of international designers who believe in projects with “raison d’être.”  What I like about SKITSCH (besides their philosophy stated below) is that it has a multi-channel business model that sells directly to the public in stores, online  and through its sales catalog and a selected group of 350 retailers in Europe.

Where To Buy In The USA

You can also find products by SKITCH Designers in the US at Design Within Reach.  Their philosophy is “a new way of doing design, not a style, but the many expressions of contemporary creativity by signing on established and emerging designers” to create lifestyle inspired products.  Let’s take a look at one of their designers’ creations: a Wood Floor Lamp and Wood Table Lamp by Fernando and Humberto Campana. Did you notice how the light laminates throughout the entire body of the lamp – not just through the shade?

Designed by the two Brazilian brothers with a design studio in San Paolo (mentioned above).  Although they work with established home furnishing companies like Alessi and Edra, gallery owners and institutions their products are completely handmade.

These lamps are handsome (“handsome” is a good word I think to describe them)!  A simple pure design, no frills, just nice clean lines and manufactured using durable materials: teak and stainless steel.  If you haven’t noticed in the above video or images, the lampshades can be adjusted in 2 positions and the wires are hidden by a PMMA tube, making it suitable for outdoor use as well.  Now that’s versatility, “reason for existence” and definitely desirable!  Go to for pricing and online orders.
