A-Beam is the new terracotta luminaire created by the London-based Hand&Eye Studio. The study led by the architect Tom Housden was created in 2011 and since then they have developed projects that follow a carefully designed line of work.

The new A-Beam terracotta luminaire is an extruded ceramic beam that houses the latest in LED lighting technology. The combination of craftsmanship and high precision engineering come together to create a unique suspended illumination.

The result is a product that adds the warmth and imperfection of the clay to this highly engineered architectural light. The illuminated space acquires these qualities, summarizing them in a simple floating line horizontally.

A-Beam is a luminaire from the Hand & Eye studio that mixes the imperfections of clay with the efficiency of highly engineered lighting

A-Beam is made with the highest quality, with a tolerance of +/- 1.5mm along its entire length. Two models are available according to measures of length: 1600mm and 1800mm. The A-Beam is a custom-made profile that allows the LED and diffuser to slide inside the lamp section. In this way, all the lighting equipment is hidden, obtaining a simple suspended terracotta line.

The A-Beam attaches through two wires as they provide flexibility in adapting to the space it illuminates. Currently there are two models according to their color: terracotta and grey earthenware. In the future, it is planned to add color to the clay, obtaining new finishes.

The fruit of the work of the Hand & Eye studio is the union of a product produced in collaboration with small manufacturers, all being teachers in their guild. This allows experimentation in the design process and the compression of materials is always present.
