The Lucerna

Welcome to The Mallet
Lucerna highlights the beauty of the curve, reflected in the form and structure of each piece. Each piece has been inspired by the symmetry and harmony of the world around us - ranging from the mathematical formula for pi to ionic pillars in greek architecture as well as the weightlessness and brightness of Bali and tropical elements.

The Lucerna

Story

Inspired by the flutes of Ionic pillars in Greek architecture, infused with design elements from architecture in Bali, this eye-catching lighting accent has a contemporary, elegant yet simple design, with a tropical twist.

Design

This piece was created by assembling tapered strips of beech with uniform gaps that exaggerate its verticality, based on precise drawings and design. We incorporated Bluetooth operated lighting to ensure that unsightly wiring does not distract from the clean lines of the design.

The Shad

Story

This bench is designed to be the perfect statement piece for a garden or patio, with its wide body and solid structure. The structured cube grid inspired shape is pleasingly geometric, giving the impression of an elevated park bench.

Design

The cubed grid structure lends symmetry to the design, with grooves to relieve the solidity of the logs of wood resting on metal legs. The seat is a chamfered depression, leaving space for a cushion.

The Louvre

Story

Louvre is a multifunctional bar unit that is artsy and oozes glamour. It is made of white oak which has a brighter tone, thus making the piece more eye-catching and desirable. Louvre could be that exquisite piece of furniture that you could have at your home which is not only rare but also multifunctional.

Design

Louvre is a piece of art that is designed to be highly functional. The fluted design stands tall whilst playing with solids and voids to create a harmony that defines the space around it.

The Crab

Story

The Crab is a floor standing Credenza designed to be placed effortlessly in a 21st century Living Room. The idea of conscious consumerism has evolved with the journey of the Crab. Flexibility is a character that sets the Crab apart from any conventional furniture. This credenza can not only be used as a TV unit but also be placed in an outdoor area for seating, while one may want to beautify a feature wall in the house by placing it against the wall.

Design

The designer's challenge was to create a piece of furniture that defies the laws of Physics, or appear to do so. It has been designed & constructed in a specific manner so that the cement-stained solid Oak Wood blocks appear to be hovering in the air. Spacers in strategic locations have been used to create a gap of 10-15mm between these blocks of Oakwood. This was a challenge since the spacers could not be visible when viewed from outside. To break the monotony of the blocks, angled cuts have been made at the centre of the Crab to add a sense of modern-brutalism to the unit.
