About The Process

Frank Buchwald Studio Boppstasse , Berlin, Kreuzberg

The Machine Light series comprises different models produced in low volume production.
Each object is manually produced from up to 200 individual parts (included hand blown globe, type 01). Each light is therefore unique.
Steel and brass parts produced from raw steel and brass, and burnished by hand, creating a black surface structure with a brownish hue. The brass parts are given a fine finish and the steel parts are treated with the silky matt finish.

The voltage is 230V (110V with voltage converter). The lights are wired with black and yellow textile cables, partially encased in flexible brass tubes. Industrial bulbs and light tubes with visible filaments or yellow surface evaporation allow the Machine Lights an effective glow.

The low volume production takes place in Berlin, Germany and requires a delivery time of 3 months and more depending on the model.
Custom models are designed and produced on request.
