Throughout LDF, design professionals move between showroom openings, product launches and cocktail parties. We introduced this month’s Breakfast Insight event with a wholesome start to the day, serving a re-energising breakfast alongside fresh design in partnership with London-based lighting brand Tala.
The brand’s co-founder Joshua Ward and senior designer Daniel Carpenter joined us to talk about two new collections unveiled during London Design Festival, their research and development process and their progress with becoming a sustainable manufacturer.
The first product making its debut was Kilter, a minimalist wall light. Four years of research and prototyping went into this tubular LED light that’s IP44 rated. Daniel explained the challenges of making the visible LED filament within the glass replaceable, as many standard LEDs lights cannot easily be swapped for new ones once they reach the end of their lifespan. To make Kilter an attractive option for commercial and residential spaces, Tala launches the fixture in two sizes and two colour temperatures: one in bright white and one in a warm yellow hue.
Another new highlight is the Muse wall light, the brand’s first array of portable table lights. Developed in partnership with Farrow & Ball, their creative team guided the colour selection. The battery-powered light is fully disassemblable so that the battery can be easily removed should it need to be replaced. Josh also noted how the industrial aesthetic adds a new flavour to Tala’s offering of clean-lined designs.
